If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call but Ghostbusters. If it is stranger still, you gonna call Ghostbusters 2. Thirty years later, the original comedy starrring Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, and Sigourney Weaver still totally rocks.  Ghostbusters 2 is also a lot of fun to watch. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the original with a two blu-ray digibook set with the films mastered in 4K for those who got the buckage.

Peter Venkman and his associates are professors of the paranormal at a Neew York University. Nobody takes them seriously until some very strange things start happening around New York City.. They suit up with gadgets that still make the equipment TV shows like Ghost Hunters and Most Haunted use look like dollar store toys.

In the first Ghostbusters a malevolent force rises and goes after Sigourney Weaver (and Rick Moranis). IN the second, a different malevolent force goes after Sigourney Weaver and her baby. I can easily understand these evil forces for going after Weaver.  The first time around the entity is called Zuul and its minion Gozer. The second time around the dark one is a Jean Chretien lookalike and the minion is an Eastern European scientist played by Peter MacNicol (Ally McBeal).
