Chris and Allen put down their copy of Tobin’s Spirit Guide to relive their youth

Do, Ray, Egon…….Allen and Chris talk the original Ghostbusters film and its sequel, Ghostbusters 2, a film that did not have a great response at the time but in the dumb furore over the 2016 reboot seemed to be reclassified as a classic. How does it stand up and can two dudes that saw Ghostbusters when they were kids ever be able to look at the first film with any critical distance?

We discuss:

Ghost trains

Bill Murray’s excellence

Dan Ackroyd’s beliefs

Chris misses Harold Ramis

The Beatles

And Allen has yet another impersonation

Who you gonna call? No one calls anymore, Granddad, just message them instead. 

Remind yourself of the films here:

Allen and Chris look into the depths of their dark hearts. And at trailers and stuff.

In between 'franchise' episodes (where we delve into a particular film or series of films) we'll be doing bonus episodes where we talk about wider trends in sequel culture, sequel news, new trailers and whatever the hell we like.

In this episode we talk

Jet setting

Daniel Craig returning as Bond

Death

Enjoying violence in movies

Valerian and The City Of A Thousand Planets

Some stuff we forgot to mention about the Robocop soundtracks last episode

And Allen debuts another new impression!
