Ghostbusters remains one my all time favorite films. Its witty dialog, spot-on acting, eccentric characters, creative storytelling, and pseudoscientific plot lines makes it one of the most enjoyable and audience friendly films I can think of. Pure desert island worthy material. If this was all Ramis left the film world, it would be enough in my book. But his body of work includes so much more and in light of his passing feels like it all deserves another view. Here are some of the highlights:
- SCTV (head writer/actor)
- Animal House (writer)
- Caddyshack (writer/director)
- Stripes (writer/actor)
- National Lampoon's Vacation (director)
- Ghostbusters (writer/actor)
- Back to School (writer)
- Groundhog Day (writer/director)
- Analyze This (writer/director)
