GHOSTBUSTERS – One of the Best Movies for Geeks to watch On Netflix
Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! With the recent passing of Harold Ramis, it got me thinking about some of his movies. Movies like Stripes and Groundhog Day. Although good movies, none touched my childhood like Ghostbusters. This movie instantly became a favorite and is loved by Geeks everywhere. Even if you never saw the movie before, you’ve heard of it. You’ve seen the games, toys, clothing, etc with the “No Ghost” logo on them. I remember, as a kid, wanting to be a Ghostbuster soooooo bad. I even had a couple of friends learn all the lines from the movie so I can be Peter Venkman.
Imagine my surprise when Ghostbusters popped up on Netflix. I immediately made my kids sit their butts down on the couch to watch it with me. Yes, this movie is great for the whole family to enjoy. There are some pretty risque scenes but nowadays kids are watching a whole lot worse on Nickelodeon. It was the 80’s so you know there is going to be a lot of smoking in it.
This is a movie that will make you feel like a kid again. It instantly brings you back to 1984. I highly recommend it. The mix of humor, suspense, action, and scifi are a the perfect mix for the perfect movie.
If you have not gotten a chance to watch Ghostbusters, you are doing yourself a disservice and your Geek Card will be revoked.
Ghostbusters is currently enjoying a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is currently streaming on Netflix and Redbox Instant
P.S. Kids loved it.
