Now available - Ghost!!!!!!!!!
« on: June 25, 2009, 11:41:34 AM »

If messy wet clay and the brothers Everly are your idea of foreplay, look no further than this Jerry Zucker-directed (yes, THAT Jerry Zucker) surprise smash hit of 1990.

Test your credulity as our beloved Patrick Swayze trades in his dirty dancin' shoes and his blue collar bartending meat hooks to give a turn in the role he was destined to play: an intelligent, educated, high-powered account executive.

Feel his pain when he is prematurely ripped away from Demi Moore while she is upstaged by her own Hobbit haircut.

Drown in misery as you discover that the only way he can communicate with her is through a scenery-gnawing con woman.

But cheer up! You also get to feast your eyes on some of cinema's worst special effects in the form of crudely animated shadow demons.*

Cole Stratton and Janet Varney return for another Swayze classic with Ghost, a movie cloaked in profound questions about the existence of an afterlife, whether the living can communicate with the dead, and how in the world Whoopi Goldberg ended up with an Oscar.

Menus are all set to go, just gotta wait a couple hours to get home, download, and mix.

I think I heard Roger Ebert say the same thing about the shadow demons :/  I like them.  They scared the bejabbers out of me when I first saw this movie at age 10.

I'll say it again in here, one of my favorite teams of riffers. Got my copy sitting here and ready. Cannot wait.

If people for some reason still haven't seen their Dirty Dancing riff, drop what you're doing, slap yourself six times in atonement, then download and view.  Seriously.  It's unicorn magic dreams good.
