On June 1, 1984 "Ghostbusters" entered American theaters and cemented itself pretty good into popular culture for 30 years now. (Shockingly, the movie has yet to be entered into the National Film Registry.) This weekend a remastered 4K version of the movie hit theaters. I went to a screening last night and loved it. I got to see the movie in theaters a couple years ago during a re-release with the Blu-Ray version of the movie hitting shelves. I wasn't to impressed with presentation, I don't think the type of film used for Ghostbusters really lent itself well to high-def. (Though, thankfully, the movie wasn't made horrible looking with too much noise reduction in the video.) The 4K version actually looked pretty good, but still a pretty "drab" looking film without very vibrant colors. (To contrast, I saw Back to the Future in a theater re-release (coinciding with that movies BD release, as well) and it look positively vibrant and alive on the big screen. I doubt film changed that much inside of a year so I suspect Ghostbusters was on slightly more restrained budget necessitating cheaper cameras and film, not to mention a filming style to better fit the movie's tone and setting. Anyway, it was fun seeing the movie again on the big-screen and Bill Murray in this role is utterly a delight to watch. Also it was nice to watch the movie and reflect on Harold Ramis who passed away earlier this year and his role of Egon Spengler. Just a good movie, one (and it's ensuing franchise) that had a great impact on my childhood. Small audience size, but it was pretty early in the evening when I went to see it. A family and their two younger children where in the seats behind me, the children seemed to enjoy it. Man around my age was a couple rows ahead and laughed pretty good at all of the jokes and comedic moments (mostly from Murray and Moranis) in the movie. Just a good time. Happy Anniversary, Ghostbusters.
