Jim Daly and Giles Paley-Phillips from Blank Podcast return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Jim’s choice Ghost. Ghost is a 1990 romantic thriller starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg (Oscar-winning Best Actress in this role), Tony Goldwyn, and Rick Aviles. Couple Sam (Swayze) and Molly (Moore) are renovating their Manhattan apartment when tragedy strikes with Sam being mugged and shot - as he is lying dying in the street his ghost leaves his body. Trapped between the afterlife and reality Sam turns detective with the help of psychic Oda Mae Brown (Goldberg) to track down his killer and discovers the fatal attack was not an accident. Ghost received very mixed reviews when released - an unusual mix of genres - romantic drama and dark thriller with some comedic moments from Jerry (Airplane!) Zucker was just a bit confusing. However, it was a HUGE box office success, helped by the now-infamous “Unchained Melody” pottery scene it was the highest-grossing film of 1990. Ghost has aged surprisingly well, Swayze and Moore have great chemistry and Goldberg is brilliant. The CGI is a bit ropey but it is just about forgivable.     Scores 

[supsystic-tables id=200] Ghost scored very highly for recommendability from Jim (for his first watch), Helen, and Kobi with a straight five, less high from Giles. Ghost did very well across the other Flixwatcher categories to score a very respectable 4.31 overall.   What do you guys think? Have you seen Ghost? What did you think?
