Prince autograph Sunday, November 21st, 1982
One night a feast was held in the palace, and there came a man and
prostrated himself before the prince, and all the feasters looked
upon him; and they saw that one of his eyes was out and that
the empty socket bled. And the prince inquired of him, “What has
befallen you?” And the man replied, “O prince, I am by profession
a thief, and this night, because there was no moon, I went to rob
the money-changer’s shop, and as I climbed in through the window
I made a mistake and entered the weaver’s shop, and in the dark I
ran into the weaver’s loom and my eye was plucked out. And now,
O prince, I ask for justice upon the weaver.”
Then the prince sent for the weaver and he came, and it was decreed
that one of his eyes should be plucked out.
“O prince,” said the weaver, “the decree is just. It is right that
one of my eyes be taken. And yet, alas! both are necessary to me
in order that I may see the two sides of the cloth that I weave.
But I have a neighbour, a cobbler, who has also two eyes, and in
his trade both eyes are not necessary.”
Then the prince sent for the cobbler. And he came. And they took
out one of the cobbler’s two eyes.
And justice was satisfied.

“Ghostbusters” is iconic, but has a few problems that I just can’t glance over.
Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, and Egon Spengler have just been defunded by Columbia University after the dean decided their research was a waste of money. The three start their own business called, Ghostbusters, to find and capture ghosts. It becomes a very successful endeavor which causes it to catch the attention of the EPA. With the EPA and a new threat named, Zuul, breathing down their necks, the Ghostbusters must arm themselves and be ready for whatever pops into their dimension.
I don’t usually start off with talking about the soundtrack for my movie reviews, but I think this is the one movie where I have to make an exception. The “Ghostbusters” song is so iconic that I knew the words to it while watching this movie today for the first time. I think that, plus all the iconic and influential imagery should be appreciated in this film. Seeing how much of this film has been preserved by pop-culture is astounding. The practical effects were a treat to watch and added a layer of enjoyment for me. I think that’s where the praise has to end for me. There were enough problems in this movie for me to seriously consider not giving this iconic film a five-star rating. The character of Peter Venkman steals the show. It’s obvious that Bill Murray was carrying this film from the start. Unfortunately for his castmates, that means the other characters weren’t as memorable. Egon was fine, but Stantz didn’t have any outstanding personality to him. He was an average Joe. To be honest, I didn’t notice that he wasn’t even in a majority of the second act. He just sort of disappeared for a bit of the movie and then came back. As much as I like Bill Murray, and even though I just praised him in this movie, I have to point out that he was one-note for the entire movie. There were moments that should have been serious, but he kept his same nonchalant attitude, which hindered the gravitas of a majority of the climax. The story kind of just happens and I wasn’t really all that invested. I wanted to love this movie, but only came out liking it. That isn’t all bad though. It means it has a lot of room to improve in the sequel.
