The Famous Ghostbusters Moment That Was Not In The Original Script

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.

Evolution Showed Why David Duchovny Deserved More Comedy Roles

Way back in 2001, I got to see a sneak peek of a little film called Evolution. I knew next to nothing about the flick other than it was directed by Ivan Reitman and starred David Duchovny, Orlando Jones, and Julianne Moore, which meant I found myself in the rare position of going into a film completely blind. While my expectations weren’t very high, I enjoyed the clever little comedy for its broad humor and goofy tone. Sure, a lot of the big moments fall flat, but there’s still enough good mater...
