Miss out on seeing Ghostbusters in its original release or when it has been re-released in the past? Beat yourself up no more, because the movie is making its way back to theaters once again this August to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
It’s important that you take advantage of this opportunity, because classic, groundbreaking movies don’t just always get re-released into theaters. And Ghostbusters is one of the best comedies of all time, which is an indisputable fact. It’s a perfectly crafted story featuring some of the best comedians and – more importantly – comedy writers of their time. Its originality becomes more impressive with each passing year, as does the chemistry between its stars. For a story that sounds so simple, the strength of the cast offers an intangible quality that simply can’t be matched or recreated.
Sure, you’ve realized and understood this after years of watching it on VHS and DVD, so you may not think much now about Ghostbusters combined with the theater experience. But once it’s happening, once you’re actually seeing it on the big screen, it’s like seeing it for the very first time.
Ghostbusters is the gold standard for the comedy/sci-fi genre, and it still feels like the perfect blend of those elements. It was a dynamic that can never be replicated, and missing it in theaters (again) would be, as Peter Venkman would put it, a disaster of biblical proportions.
