Metalhead Ned’s Personal Relationship with ‘Ghostbusters’ [Video]
It is a sad day on the Hollywood front as one of the funniest men of all time has passed away, Harold Ramis.
Ramis' creations, like "National Lampoon's Animal House," "Ghostbusters," "Stripes" and plenty more, have affected my personal life in so many ways.
"Ghostbusters," however, was the biggest!
Growing up with "Ghostbusters" was quite entertaining.
When I was just a kid, it was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and "Ghostbusters."
There was the infamous movie, cartoon show, action figures, comics, and of course video games.
The video games in the eight-bit era were just awful (the text pic is the end of the NES Ghostbusters game; see why it sucks?), but the latest one, Ghostbusters: The Video Game, was amazing.
Before I get carried away with video games, let's look at "Ghostbusters" as a whole.
I had everything when it came to "Ghostbusters," even an entire plastic Proton Pack that strapped to my back and I would walk around my house zapping imaginary ghost!
That thing was awesome!
What does it all come down to though? The movie.
The movie "Ghostbusters" was just a ton of fun, and how all of the actors worked together was just perfect. Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Dan Akroyd and Ernie Hudson just SOLD that movie so well. It was a perfect sci-fi comedy that really could be sold to anyone. It had lovable characters, an out-of-this-world storyline, and just quotes you will never forget.
I won't get much more into it here, but "Ghostbusters" was just awesome on so many levels.
For the LONGEST time, people have been wondering if there was going to be a "Ghostbusters 3."
Sadly, I think the latest news of Ramis' passing says it all.
Thanks Ramis for bringing laughs to the world.
