The first film on this list was actually the 80’s film Wargames, however I am yet to finish my review on this, so I am kicking things off with my second watch, Ghost.
Ghost stars a very young Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore as a young couple (Sam and Molly) in the throws of life, happy in their love, but on one fateful night Sam and Molly are confronted by a mugger who kills Sam after a scuffle. This leaves Sam in the space between realities with Sam watching Molly crying over his dead body. Trying to get a mental grip on all that is going on Sam tries everything he can to contact his love through any means. This leads him to fake-real psychic Oda Mae, played by Whoopi Goldberg, who is able to talk to Sam through the other side. Freaked out she is, in some ways bullied into helping Sam contact Molly, but they also uncover a more shaddy side to the events of his death in a tale of betrayal and greed. I love Whoopi in this film, it reminds me a lot of her character in Sister Act a little bit,
Ghost in general is a pretty good little film. A late product of the 80’s that landed in the 90’s the film brings the cheese while being an integrating crime comedy, with obviously added 80’s spookiness. The effects maybe be a little dated but the acting is really good and the story was well paced. If this is one you have missed (as I did) then make sure you put this on your watch list. This is worthy of being called a Classic.
