Yeah, the main theme is pretty dated, but the iconic nature and the instrumental score counteract that in my mind. A lot of the music in that movie actually sounds older than '80s to me.

As much as I do like the Ray Parker Jr theme, my absolute favorite song from the first movie's soundtrack is "Cleanin' up the Town". So fun and lively, and MILES ahead of anything in the second movie's soundtrack.

Total agreement there. That song accompanying the Ecto 1's reveal is where the movie really kicks in.  I also have a soft spot for "Saving the Day."

After watching Frozen a second and third time this evening, I've come to the conclusion that it's my favorite movie of 2013 BY FAR. I spent the first 20 minutes bawling my eyes out over the movie. I also sang along with the songs. ALL OF THEM. I'm a 23 year old girl, what can I say?

Ghostbusters 2

Although the plot is weak, it's still well-written with a lot of great moments. Works better if you think of it as a Ghostbusters bonus feature and not as a sequel. Worth watching, but dear lord the soundtrack. Dear LORD. I never like the Ghostbusters theme all that much, but it's pure gold compared to the abominable rapping in this. Really really awful crap.

You don't like the Bobby Brown track? I love that song.
Yeah. That's not legal.

Very fitting considering Bobby's background.

I didn't mind the Bobby Brown stuff, though I preferred Glenn Frey's Flip City (partly because of the scene it's in) and the Jackie Wilson cover. What about Elton John's contribution?

Spirit! Some people hear it! Some people fear it! Spirit! Some people just won't go near it!

Ghostbusters II was my favorite movie EVER when it came out, and I spent many of my Pre-Teen/Early Teen years listening to the casette tape of the soundtrack over and over again. As a result, hearing songs like "Flip City" or "We're Back" transports me to that time in my life. I get a similar rush hearing anything from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles soundtracks. All three of 'em...

Yeah... that's my reaction to the trailers, too.

I plan on seeing this movie, even though I don't know what to make of it from the previews. I read the book of the same name by Michel Faber and enjoyed it. I hope I'm not spoiling anything for the movie by saying (oh hell I'm putting this in a spoiler tag anyway)

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

With that in mind I am completely flummoxed by what I've seen of the movie so far -- parts of it seem similar to the book but it looks like it's going to be a completely different animal (no pun intended).

Nightmare on Elm Street-30th anniversary screening at Alamo Drafthouse.

Wow, I'm watching a lot more old movies in theaters than new ones lately.  I think this is the first time I've watched a movie I've riffed in the theater after riffing it.  Luckily it's a movie I actually like, and still holds up really well.  It's a great experience watching with a crowd too.  It got a few laughs here and there with the extremely 80sness and the Mom's crazy drunkenness and sudden recovery in the last scene.

As usual, seeing something like this at the Alamo came with extras.  At the door we were all handed prescription bottles for Hypnocil made out to Nancy Thompson. (the were filled with orange tic-tacs), and the night started with a one-on-one jump rope contest as the audience sang "1 2 Freddy's coming for you."  I volunteered and ultimately lost.  It was the most jumps in 30 seconds, and I came in at 33 to my opponent's 40.  It didn't help that they gave us child sized jump ropes.  Still got a free movie pass for trying, so sitting for the first 15 minutes of the movie overheated and with sore legs was worth it. (My legs were already in pain because I just started working out this week.  Didn't know there was jumping involved in the contest until after I'd volunteered.  Oops.)

Might have to come back next week, they're showing Temple of Doom as a quote-along, complete with paper whips and torn out hearts to hold up.  There's also an eating contest, and I'm a little afraid of what that's going to entail.

Get Low

Not a perfect movie, but a very well acted one.  It's about an old hermit who wants a funeral director to hold for him a "funeral party".  Thinking about the script, it could be a bit precious if Robert Duvall and Bill Murray didn't act the heck out of it.  Not to say it's a so-so script in some ways: Murray's character could have easily been written as a sleazy money-grubber, but he really comes off as someone who wants to give his customer exactly what he wants and though his motive might be to keep his business afloat, he clearly wants to make his customers happy.  The big reveal of the truth isn't anything mind-blowing, but it is a good scene that Duvall acts very well.  Worth checking out.
