On the way we see what may be a blooming love story staring a possessed Sigourney Weaver (of "Alien" 1979 fame). There is also a token appearance by the Staypuff man. And who is the key master.
Lost of fun classic that was a first of its kind. There have been many stories similar but this combination of characters and actors is unique.
Even today you hear "Who ya gonna call?"
The Movie stands on its own. However, we now live in the Blu-ray era.
So a little about the technology.
What people think is Blu-ray improvement is mixed with the addition of larger screens, not denser detail. You can notice smaller items.
For those more interested in dabbling with technology than watching the film, there is BD-Live requiring "Profile 2.0" capable Blu-ray. "Cinechat" You do not use cell phones in school zones so why "Cinechat" during the film? "Slimer Mode" which gives some insight to what the film is trying to portray (this does not take the place of the commentary.) "Blu-Wizard" if you only want to see Sigourney breathing heavily. There are also a dozen or so more added features.

Ghostbusters is a thoroughly entertaining movie which has delighted millions around the world.
This having been said I regretfully have to report the quality of Ghostbusters 4k UHD is extremely disappointing to say the least, what I witnessed via a Panasonic UB900 4K Blu-ray player and a Epsom projector has left me in no doubt that those responsible for the release of this movie on the Premium format have really not done this film Justice.
This film comes with heavy dose of Grain in dark scenes and the shadow line detail is less than acceptable throughout the entire film with dark, black, brown and sepia tones which suffered quite badly.
If one applies extra Sharpness and contrast it will only make the picture quality worse and add noise artefacts and ringing in some scenes in the overall picture...and talking of the picture quality.
The overall quality is uneven from scene to scene this entire movie requires a full remaster and some of the special effects can be updated and improved.
I really had expected better from Sony Entertainment, I have been left somewhat disappointed by the graininess of the picture quality and the uneven quality of some scenes throughout the entire movie.
I believe in quality products and this 4K release from Sony Entertainment is certainly not one of them, if Studios continue to release poor quality 4K products then they would have already condemned 4K UHD Blu-ray to history...
Just as the American market put the nails into the 3D coffin of that format which has led to the decline of 3D content in the United States...but that is another story.
I've bought recently Ridley Scott's 1979 classic Alien on 4k UHD, a film that was released 5 years before Ghostbusters and yet 20th Century Fox has produced a stunning product to be enjoyed on this premium disk format and yet Sony Entertainment has not seen the light to produce what could have been a supreme product on 4K UHD disc, a huge disappointment and the worse 4K product I have encountered so far.
Note to Sony Entertainment...
Please do something about this.
Its fun, has a cast who have chemistry including Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, and Harold Ramis.
The plot centres around a group of scientists who chase ghosts and want to contain them, during a period of ghost activity in New York.
Its very funny, special effects are good, and has moments I think when you feel for the main characters.
Presented here in a Blu Ray steel book, at the cost is an absolute bargain and something to keep on my shelf to show my kids when they are old enough.
Images included of back cover, and contents of inside. Simply lovely :)
If you’re a movie or Blu Ray Collector, you should definitely have this on your shelf. A classic movie, full of great humour, great characters and a great story. Every actor shines very brightly in this. A rare thing. Highly highly recommended!
Why not make Ghostbusters 3 rather than a remake.
I don't say reboot, reboot is what you do to a computer.
