- Ghostbusters review by CP Customer
One of those films from my childhood that still provokes fond memories. Ghostbusters remains a funny, thrilling romp through New York's supernatural wildlife. Having bought this blu ray on release the amount of grain is very surprising, the film does look good overall but I still think more could have been done to the print. Alot of the extras relate to the video game but amongst the menus are some vintage insights into the making of and a good commentary track.

This has miserably failed the test of time. Zero plot even by the standards of the genre at the time and extremely uncomfortable to watch the Bill Murray character’s sexual predation and harassment of the leading female.
Wouldn’t and couldn’t be made now and we should all be grateful for that.

- Ghostbusters review by JD
There are very, very few films that can claim to be better today than they were the day they were launched.
The only flaws i have for this film is some of the special effects - some are ok, but most look bad even for the 80's and the film is perhaps a bit to sharp and trim. Its a brilliant film and i wouldnt of minded a little more runtime.
On this disc you only need to slot it into your machine to be witness of this films greatness. There is no noisy menu running through bits of the film. Just the logo and the timeless theme song. Its special and not a frame of film has yet rolled.
The cast are brilliant, as youd expect from the names in this. Even the supporting characters are excellent.
So back to my first statement, how can a film be better 30 years on? gb2016 has that honour. It showed us all how under appreciated fantastic films like this were. By failing so miserably to re-invent ghostbusters it forced home how how good the original was.
I might not of given this 5 stars (that honour is saved for the likes of Carpenter or Cameron) but it is a fantastic film that that my Son, girlfriend and myself all thoroughly enjoyed.
