PODCAST 89: Ghostbusters & Ghostbusters 2

This week Forest & Cory salute the late-great comedy genius Harold Ramis as they discuss both Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters 2 and their childhood memories of the franchise and it's cartoon incarnations.

The gang also discuss the films Frozen, The Lego Movie & Nebraska. All this and internet rumors; "Jackie Chan is dead!", "Does Jack Nicholson have a tumor?".

Good show, gents. Max von Sydow did Vigo's voice. He even did it for the video game as well. It seems like Ghostbusters is almost taken for granted as a great piece of '80s pop culture and not often recognized as a legit great movie on it's own, which is most certainly is. The amount of talent involved is sort of staggering. Caught Murray's tribute to Ramis during the Oscars. Apparently they did reconcile before Ramis died, which is nice to hear. They gave me (and no doubt you guys as well) a lot of great film memories growing up.

Noticed that the podcast seems to show up sooner on youtube than on your main website.

Anyway, surprised you guys haven't mentioned Guardians of the Galaxy yet. Come on, just the racoon alone ought to be worth discussing.

Think you guys could be persuaded to do another Godzilla review before the new movie comes out? I know of one Godzilla movie that would be perfect for a Netflix movie night, if it were on Netflix, which it isn't. Godzilla: Final Wars. That has got to be one the most cheesy, cliched, outrageously entertaining movies I have ever seen, and I've seen all the other Godzilla movies. Trust me when I say that that movie is worth watching. You won't believe how high the cheese factor ramps up in that film.

My personal favorite Godzilla movie out of all of them is Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. That movie kicks ass, especially if you've seen the other films from the Heisei series (the films from 1984 to 1995). All the films in that series are surprisingly good, except for Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla. That movie isn't good, though I will admit I laughed my ass off at the Woody Woodpecker robot.

I agree with Gex about Final Wars. My favorite Godzilla is Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack - pretty good special effects for a Godzilla film. It's hard to beat King Kong vs. Godzilla for campy fun though.
