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.

How David Chase Breathed Life into the The Sopranos

Warning: watching the above video essay with David Chase, Matthew Weiner, Terence Winter, and the other writers of The Sopranos (along with select longer-form videos below) may send you into a binge watch (or re-watch) of the HBO series. Just saying, because you might want to set aside some time. It is hard to believe that the series premiere was over 20 years ago, since its insights into America, our love affair with violence, and the mob hasn’t changed. (I mean, look at the gangsters c...

‘Groundhog Day: The Musical’ Review: A Splendid, High-Spirited Retelling of a Classic

The Groundhog Day musical is a joyful experience about one huge jerk. As Bill Murray’s take on the same character does in the Harold Ramis film classic, Phil eventually learns his lessons, but this stage adaptation from director Matthew Warchus, playwright Danny Rubin, and composer Tim Minchin turn his cantankerousness up a couple of notches before he does. The Phil in the Groundhog Day Musical isn’t the same Phil from the movie. The show has the same character, attitude, and spirit, but Rubin ...

Exactly Why Did Bill Murray Keep Repeating His ‘Groundhog Day?’

Some readers might have been reminded that today is Groundhog Day because their morning news had a live broadcast from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. That’s where the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, predicting six more weeks of winter. For me, I was reminded because my Twitter feed has been nothing but a live blog of quotes from the classic Harold Ramis film. Either way, today is Groundhog Day and in the 1993 film of the same name, Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is forced to live the same ...

How to Stop Sabotaging Ourselves by Learning to Recognize our Ignorance

  “I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think.” [Socrates] The mind is a subject of eternal fascination. We remember things we never experienced, and with Google just one short click away, we may think we know more than we do. Learning to think for ourselves is a good first step to help us self-assess. We can ask for feedback, but often business relationships and social constructs blunt the more useful data points. Knowing we don't know American author and aphorisms ...
