25 and 20?

Last night AMC showed both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 (see my reviews on my other blog (the link is right there in the sidebar).

What surprised me was that this is all part of a 25 yr celebration. As I told some of my facebook friends last night, I can't believe it's been 25 rs. I remember the first time I saw it gave me nightmares --hangs head in shame-- Now I love it, though.

20 yrs ago the sequel came out. Where has the time gone? Anyone else out there in shock about this like I?

Nothing makes me feel older than watching movies now considered classics that I saw in theaters. I saw Star Wars back in, I can't believe it, 1977.
Seems like last week.

OMG my husband and I are always saying "Was it THAT long ago that X happened!". I saw that the other day about Ghostbusters being 25yo and I about had a coronary...sheesh.

I watched Ghostbusters first run, twice. That was back in the day when I rode my bicycle everywhere I went and had bums for steel, so yeah, I can believe it has been twenty-five years. It does seem like only yesterday though.

Everything I think about now seems to have the Twenty Years Ago prefix attached to it.
