“Ghostbusters” was on TV last night. Again. And I tell ya, I have no problem watching it – despite having sat through about fifty times. It’s such a good movie. Yes, the effects are dated, and the cheesy soundtrack is a little much at times (but cool at the time, right?), but as an overall movie experience, it rocks. It was probably the last time we got truly excited whilst watching a movie – I’m not talking about going into a movie, I’m talking about smiling, clapping, cheering…as the movie was in progress.

Good news, then. The flick is headed for Blu-Ray. Finally.

The Digital Bits just posted the following :

Okay… speaking of title announcements, here’s an official one hot off the wires: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will indeed be releasing Ghostbusters on Blu-ray Disc on 6/16, in celebration of the film’s 25th anniversary and timed to coincide with the release of Atari’s Ghostbusters: The Video Game the same day. The Blu-ray (SLP $38.96) will include most (if not all) of the previous DVD extras, including audio commentary with Ivan Reitman, Harold Ramis and Joe Medjuck, 10 deleted scenes, storyboard comparisons and 3 featurettes (The Making of Ghostbusters, Interviews with Cast and Crew and SFX Team with before and after multi-angle explorations). New features for the Blu-ray include a Slimer Mode picture-in-picture viewing option (featuring an examination of the spook-hunters’ firehouse headquarters, an in-depth exploration of the creatures in the Ghostbusters mythology, behind-the-scenes discussions of making the movie, new cast, crew and special effects artists interviews and much more), the Ecto-1: Resurrecting the Classic Car featurette, a Ghostbusters Garage: Ecto-1 Gallery and a 32-page scrapbook. The title will also include BD-Live connectivity, offering additional features (TBA). FYI, there’s no official word yet on Ghostbusters 2, but we’ll check on it.

Nice… now all we need is “Back to the Future” on BR, right!!? (a nicer print of “Predator” on Hi-Def might be good, too).
