Kate McKinnon’s Extensive Ghostbusters Outtakes Are All Must-See Genius

Smells like toasted Stay Puft marshmallows.

Ghostbusters Reel Showcases the Power of Visual Effects

The coolest part are those visual effects that combine practical effects--like lighting, talented actors and even a drone or two--with the incorporation of some computer-generated ghost imagery to complete the finished product.

Schrödinger’s Queer: Does Representation Without Confirmation Mean Anything?

Kate McKinnon is an out lesbian and infused her Ghostbusters performance with glorious queerness, but following the release of the movie there were many questions raised as to whether Holtzmann was really gay.

"We're all the ghost girls now."

One quote immediately came to mind after I saw Ghostbusters for the first time - "friendships between women are often the deepest and most profound love stories."
