Ghostbusters, Animal House, Caddyshack, Analyze This, hell even Year One... I am actually pretty saddened by this.

Sounds like Ghostbusters 3 won't be going ahead now, if it ever really was

HIs movies and SCTV were a huge part of my youth and growing up. Sad day.

RIP

I still fantasize about getting my hands on an EM-50 Urban Assault Vehicle.

Horrible news. What an all-around talent and manager. He had the perfect balance of letting guys do their thing while keeping their egos in check.

I still go back and forth between Caddyshack and Animal House for best comedy of all time.  And Stripes was also great.

Godspeed.

I threw Ghostbusters on last night in honor.  Tonight will be Caddyshack.  I wish I could add Stripes into the rotation, but I don't think it is on Netflix, but I'll look.

I'm hoping channels like AMC and such will put all his movies on in his honor.

He also did the first Vacation with Chevy Chase.

And reading through some stuff today, I had no idea that he directed Analyze This.  It's a different era than the other movies, but still very good.  His hits really look to have tailed off after Groundhog Day, but man, what a run he had.  I could live a very happy life if I watched one Ramis movie a day.

Another one I haven't seen mentioned yet is Back to School.  I'll look the other way on Caddyshack 2.

They had a Ramis day on one of the documentary channels only a few weeks ago. They did the makings of Caddyshack and Vacation that I watched and then gave up. I wonder if it was a little tribute knowing he was in rough shape? He just seemed like a down to earth guy that didn't let success turn him into a DB.

I will never forget when he was kidnapped by the "Leftists For Lutonia" and the powers that be never paid the ransom.  High tension right there.
