G'day, filmgoers, here's a review of a scary-themed movie which believe it or not is a supernatural-comedy. Who you're gonna call... why it's GHOSTBUSTERS and its great that you're off watching a movie about chasing ghosts than seeing horrifying flicks in your home theatre. Like old great and historic comedies, mostly the condensed humour has aged timelessly enough to the older viewers. Few of the jokes had become increasingly dated and as a child, I didn't laugh all the way through the movie. 

The original cast of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis were all marvellously and famously comedic enough getting the publicity and in the rest, other lead-stars Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver undermines their terrific stand-out roles and both characters get tangled in superstitious events. It's so grateful that the effects were mostly a moment of achievement to this film, but in obvious ways, the stop-motion animation has just now became outdated.

I seriously doubted that GHOSTBUSTERS and though I cared enough of not been a big fan like my brother. This is what I call it a good feature to watch with at least some scariest parts.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
