Ghostbusters isn’t only one of the best comedies ever made but the film was influential in changing up the visual effects game. Ivan Reitman had broken onto the map as a director with Meatballs and shortly followed with Stripes. However, Ghostbusters is certainly the film that would change the game. It’s the film that gave us Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), and Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis). The Ectomobile! The keymaster and the gatekeeper! Ray Parker’s…"Ghostbusters: One Of The Best Comedies Ever"
Ghostbusters: Afterlife hits at all the nostalgic emotions as the torch gets passed to a new generation of Ghostbusters. If you read nothing else, please make sure to sit through the end of the credits. There is a mid-credit and a post-credit scene. Jason Reitman takes the best of his father’s two films and the best of Paul Feig’s solo outing to bring this bittersweet sequel. If bittersweet is the right word, that is. It’s…"Ghostbusters: Afterlife Gets The Nostalgia Right"
Cleanin’ Up The Town: Remembering Ghostbusters is the definitive documentary about the making of the classic 1984 horror comedy. Where Ghostheads is a documentary about Ghostbusters fans, Cleanin’ Up The Town is about the film itself. This is an extended cut so that speaks to how many people were interviewed and the type of never-before-seen footage available. You could make this film three hours long and people would still watch it. Produced on a $25-30…"Cleanin’ Up The Town: Remembering Ghostbusters"

Fans of Toy Story 4 are now able to bring home the fourth chapter of the longest-running Pixar franchise on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. This film could very well mark the end of an era. One thing that is almost for sure, Woody’s story is likely at an end. Whether Disney-Pixar Animation decide to go forward remains to be determined. Your guess is as good as mine at this point. BONUS FEATURES (may…"Toy Story 4 arrives on Blu-ray"
Toy Story 4 could very well be a satisfying conclusion and the end of the line for the 24-year-old Disney-Pixar franchise. The opening prologue starts out some nine years ago when the team comes together to save a toy. Unbeknownst to them, Bo Peep (Annie Potts) is set to be given away. It’s not an easy farewell for Woody (Tom Hanks) after all they’ve been through but all one can do is move forward in…"Toy Story 4 Could Be A Satisfying Conclusion"
Izzy Gets the F Across Town may mean well but the small indie comedy tends to be a bit of a mess. Mackenzie Davis does her best to carry the film in the titular role of Izzy but it’s not enough to keep the film going. Given where she is at the start of the film, it’s as if the film is the indie version of the classic comedy, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. We go from…"Izzy Gets the F Across Town is messy"
