Now there really won't be a Ghostbusters 3. But THIS is even sadder.
Oh my god this is terrible. Mr. Ramis was an amazing talent.
I just watched Ghostbusters on Blu the other day
Such sad news. Vacation and Ghostbusters are perfect comedies in my eyes. Loved his stuff as a writer and director, but possibly enjoyed his presence on screen more. Egon is a classic cinematic nerd and he always brought that same sly sense of humor mixed with genuine warmth to each of his roles. See you on the other side, Dr. Spengler.
I'm so sad to read this. It's very deserving though that you can't look anywhere without seeing this sad news. Growing up watching movies not only with Harold in, but also written/produced and directed by him, this is truly a terrible day for anyone who has loved him over the years.
Such a talented, funny guy. Sad to see him go. RIP
Directed one of the funniest movies of all time. Back then he & everybody else didn't even realize it would have the incredible notoriety it has today. Not bad for Harold's first time directing duties.
Yes, I'm talking about Caddyshack.
oh wow. man, that sucks. As a kid, the Ghostbusters where the coolest thing ever.
RIP Dr. Egon :cry:
Sad news indeed... so many great times with his movies.
Classic 80s and 90s stuff... Stripes, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, National Lampoon's Vacation, Groundhog Day, Multiplicity.
Fuck. This is going to take a few days to sink in. This man and his work were staples in my childhood and adolescent years.
Rest peacefully and thanks for the years of laughs, Harold.
Damn. RIP. He acted in, wrote, directed and/or produced a lot of my favorite comedies.
Fucking death....it sucks. I thought he was younger than 69 but that is still too young to go these days.
Love Groundhog Day and Caddy Shack. Going to spin one of those in memory.
Rest in peace, sir.
Caddyshack, Stripes, Meatballs, Vacation and Animal House are the best!!!
RIP - so sad!
Huge loss with this one. My brothers and I quote his work daily. Endless enjoyment from his writing, directing, and acting.
This is another one that really hits me hard. Ramis has to be one of the most underrated comedic talents of all-time. The guy supplied Bill Murray and Chevy Chase with most of their best moments--yet he doesn't get 1/10 of the credit they get from the general public. It's always struck me as a huge injustice. Yet he never seemed bitter and even brushed off Murray's ridiculously petty hostility toward him with dignity and class.
We're on a seriously bad stretch with Ramis and Hoffman. In a business full of so many talentless, egomaniacal dickheads, they did better work than almost everyone and never achieved the same fame as others. Here's hoping death shifts his focus to celebrities on the other end of the talent to fame ratio.
Damn, this is awful. RIP.
My absolute favorite moment in GHOSTBUSTERS is a Harold Ramis moment, when they are looking down at the approaching Sta-Puff Marshmallow Man and Ray is blathering on and on. Realizing that Ray has lost it, Peter asks Spengler if he knows what to do. "Sorry, Venkman," Spengler responds in the flattest, most deadpan manner possible. "I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought." A minor joke, but Ramis' delivery always cracks me up beyond words.
