National Lampoon’s Animal House (1978) – John Landis

Ten Bad Dates With De Niro brings me this John Landis comedy classic from the late 70s for my viewing enjoyment.

Ghostbusters II (1989) – Ivan Reitman

They’re back! Ghostbusters II from 1989, is the next ghost title in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies book, and it has been a long time since I actually sat and watched this one. It’s undeniable that the first film is the better one, but there are some cool things at work in the follow-up…
