The original "Ghostbusters" is arguably one of the most quotable movies of the 1980s – which is strange to think about, considering it's a movie about a bunch of slacker scientists who sort of stumble their way into discovering a way to capture ghosts in New York City. Among the film's many memorable lines is "don't cross the streams," a crucial piece of info that Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) gives to his ghostbusting pals and which comes back to save the day at the end of the film. (I am genuin...

Sigourney Weaver Gave A Unique Ghostbusters Audition – Here's The Story

When Sigourney Weaver appeared as Dana Barrett in "Ghostbusters," she was between two other landmark performances — in "Alien" and "Aliens." The former served as her breakout role while the latter earned her an Oscar nomination for best actress, a first for her in her career.Having dabbled in sci-fi horror and also romantic dramas like "The Year of Living Dangerously," Weaver was looking to spice up her filmography with some work in a different genre. Mental Floss notes that she wanted to do a c...

Watch Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray meet Johnny Carson to promote 'Ghostbusters'

Despite years of huge successes on film and TV, Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray did not meet Johnny Carson until the 1984 press tour for Ghostbusters. The clip starts with Aykroyd doing a delightfully odd show-and-tell about paranormal research that sucks all the air out of the room, then Murray comes out halfway through and tries to save the segment to Carson's great relief. — Read the rest

Ghostbusters: Not a Child’s Toy

Ghostbusters has been in my life for as long as I can remember. No, really. Some of my earliest childhood memories involve watching the flick with my dad (and missing 75 percent of the jokes), strapping on a backpack and teaming up with friends to take down spooks, specters and ghosts on the school playground, sitting with my nose pressed to the TV eagerly awaiting the next episode of The Real Ghostbusters, perhaps the greatest animated series of the 1980s, singing along to that awesome Ray Par...
