Movie of the Year: 1984 – Ghostbusters (with Conor Kilpatrick)

Movie of the Year: 1984

Ghostbusters (with Conor Kilpatrick)

Can Ghostbusters bust its way into our 1984 Movie of the Year?

Bustin’ has been said to make one recording artist “feel good.” But is the busting of ghosts enough to center an entire feature film around? A very intelligent question, but ultimately a foolish one because this was the most successful movie of 1984 and maybe all time. If it has been a long time since you have seen this movie, do yourself a favor put it on right now. In fact, even if you have seen this movie recently, put it on.

I won’t wait, but do it.

With a movie as good as Ghostbusters, we’re going to need to call in a guest, Conor Kilpatrick of the podcast iFanboy, to make sure we don’t miss any of the angles. We suss out whether or not this movie is still scary to us before jumping into whether it is still funny to us. We also hash out what this movie says about the politics of the early 80’s, so don’t miss this opportunity to finally figure out what this podcast thinks of one Ronny Reagan!

Abortion is healthcare

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.
