How many goddamn pots do you people NEED?? I went to see this three times when it came out. I was 12.
1. Patrick Swayze liked to wear his trousers REALLY high. Like, 1940s high.
2. Patrick Swayze really liked to physically lift up women in his films.
3. I am still really sad about Patrick Swayze being dead.
4. I thought Demi Moore's hair was really bad when I watched this in 1990 for the first time. I think I may have judged her too harshly.
5. Massive shoulder pads in men's suits were still totally acceptable in 1990.
6. That pottery scene is way more phallic than I remember.
7. Pottery wheels got really cool in the early 90s for a minute.
8. The guy that kills Sam is a really weird generally racist stereotype.
9. Sam may have lived if cellphones were a thing. Am now wondering how many real people may have lived if cell phones were a thing.
10. The J train is the first subway train featured in this film and I am quietly pleased about it because when I lived in Brooklyn that was my line. I shouldn't be pleased though because it's only in play to demonstrate what a bad neighbourhood the racist stereotype murderer lives in.
11. Whoopi Goldberg is as great in this movie as you remember.
12. The moment where Whoopi tells Demi "He got me to come talk to you by singing 'I'm Henry VIII, I am' all night" is deeply disturbing because Demi responds "That's how he got me to go out with him." HARASSMENT IS NOT ROMANTIC, HOLLYWOOD, YOU FUCKS!
13. Ghosts don't ride public transport to get places. They just go. Trust me on this.
14. I wonder how non-professional dancer ghosts jump between subway trains. It's not nearly as graceful as Swayze, I'm sure.
15. Nuns taught me for 13 years of my life and I don't think any of them deserve $4 million.
16. Demi Moore has a really beautiful neck.
17. Sam's last words are "See ya". TRY HARDER, SWAYZE.
