Why You Should Watch It: I may be chastised by the internet and movie buffs everywhere, but I have to get this off my chest. I have to tell someone. It is becoming too much for one soul to bear. Here it is. I like Ghostbusters II better than the original. There, I said it. Feels great man. Why, you ask? Well, I think it has something to do with seeing it more often when I was a child and the climax of the movie not involving early 80’s digital special effects. Don’t get me wrong, the first one is also a great movie, but I’d take two over one any day. If you haven’t seen it (what is wrong with you, watch it on Netflix now), it follows a group of “Ghostbusters” who, once again, save the world and city of New York from certain paranormal doom. This time around it is from ghostly, pinky, goo that flows under the city and uses this Eastern European painting to control a weak artist into taking a baby sacrifice. The graphics are still nothing to other movies of its time or current films but they are at least 3.5 times better than Ghostbusters the original.
It's that time of year again. A time when females are encouaged to dress slutty. A time when you can be as weird as your heart desires and it's socially acceptable (hanging out in trees with binoculars excluded). And most importantly, a time when eating more candy than one person should eat in a year, in 24 hours, is the norm.
If you ask me, this faux holiday doesn't get the musical respect that it deserves. To do our part in helping to change this, here are a few spooktacular (sorry) Halloween hits. Let us know your favorite Halloween track in the comments below!
Bobby Pickett- "Monster Mash"
Michael Jackson- "Thriller"
Tracy Jordan- "Werewolf Bar Mitzvah"
