The Voice of Slimer

Last night, Dennis, Naomi and I went to see the new Ghostbusters movie on advice of Ilana.  Fun!  We really enjoyed it, funny and well written.  Too many action sequences but what do you expect?  The unusual part of this film (as we continue to see a  large number of films and TV shows NOT pass the Bechtel Test) was the four leads, the gostbusters, are played by smart, competent, funny women.

We originally went to our neighborhood theater (multi-screen) around 7 pm.  The box office told me that the 7:30 show was sold out.  What to do?  Naomi whips out her phone, finds another theater not too far away that doesn't look sold out.  "Want me to buy tickets?" she asks.  Ba da boom, ba da bing, she takes out her card and buys us the tickets to  Let's go, she says.  We get the directions to the other theater and make it with plenty of time to spare.

At the end, the very long credits come up.  Naomi says there's a part at the end.  Most of the people in the theater stay also.  But I catch a name in the credits, you know how fast they go, how can you pick out a name?  Adam Ray, voice of Slimer.  Hey, there was a kid from around here, Adam Ray.  Danny's age.  On a soccer team with Danny,  Big kid.  Vaguely remember him as talented.  Could it be him?  Yup, it is him!  He's an LA show business guy!
