An Honest Trailer for Ghostbusters

Screen Junkies gets around to giving us an honest trailer for Ghostbusters 30 years later. This episode is a bit of a departure for the series, as they can’t really find all that much to make fun of in the 1984 comedy. Ghostbusters is almost beyond criticism. The worst they can say about it is that it is a little adult for a kid’s movie. Hmm. I saw Ghostbusters as an adult in 1984, and I don’t recall it being marketed as a kid’s movie. It wasn’t, but the internet generation just happens to of an age to recall it from their childhoods. Today, a PG rating might designate a movie aimed at kids, but thirty years ago, it meant parental guidance suggested, which was the proper rating as ratings were understood back then.
