Apparently it tells us what the Nazis needed to see sense was a hug. Not sure about that.
When Stranger Things did Ghostbusters ..Hadley Freeman, a huge fan of the original, has some interesting things to say here:

She once wrote Ghostbusters '84 showed the finest displays of masculinity any man can aspire to, and I don't have a problem with that. But I agree this looks kind of anonymous. If anything it reminds me of J.J. Abrams' Super 8, which Stranger Things ripped off completely - er, I mean, was inspired by but never credited.
See the entire film, it's a true classic.Yesterday Mr Zebra and I came across Bridge on the River Kwai which neither of us had seen before.
Missed some of it as it was part-way through when we were channel-hopping but we saw a good hour/hour and a half or so and it was awfully good, and surprisingly gently humorous in parts.
EDIT: removed spoiler cos I wasn't sure if it was ok to put that in or not.
Thank you - I knew about the spoiler tags, but I wasn't sure whether it was ok to say what I'd originally said in themI'm not so keen on the way it cuts away from Alec Guinness to William Holden just as things are heating up, but that wild ending is well worth the three hour wait.

... it seems daft I suppose, but I was worried about what people would think of me saying that.
I quite fancy seeing that now--the restoration looks very immediate, especially with that 'curved effect' that puts you amidst the action.Restored in glorious Cinerama for an iPhone near you...
BTW does this trailer contain the origin of a recurring joke in Police Squad?
