Ep 72: Ghostbusters vs Ghostbusters 2

When you need a debate between Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2, who you gonna call? Not Nick, Neal and Thiago, that’s for sure. In this episode we descend into the final stages of absolute madness as we battle it out over which is better, Ghostbusters or Ghostbusters 2.

While the popular consensus usually points to the original as the superior film, Neal and Thiago have something to say about that. From the scene-stealing Lord Viggo and Janosz to a walking Statue of Liberty and Bobby Brown tunes, they fight tooth and claw to crown the sequel the winner. Of course, Nick in his relentless mission to prove them wrong, doesn’t take his punches laying down. In what should have been a no-brainer, he has to scream to make sure his points are heard. He pulls out all stops with movie quotes, plot logic and examples of #2’s cartoonish antics.

At the end of the day, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Rick Moranis have rarely been in better shape as comedians. The funny exists in both movies, a lot of which was improvised on the spot. Whether you like the first or the second (if you like the reboot more than both of these, you can honestly just go eff yourself), you can probably agree that both are infinitely quotable and have only gotten better with age.

We hope you enjoy our battle royale. We certainly had fun screaming at each other for nearly an hour, all for your entertainment. We came, we saw, we kicked each other’s ass!
