Ghost

Guest Author - Rain Battle

In 1990, director Jerry Zucker (My Best Friend's Wedding) directed a film that would become revered by audiences everywhere. Ghost is the supernatural story of Molly (Demi Moore) and Sam (Patrick Swayze), long time loves who have recently moved into a fabulous apartment and are happily eager to begin a new chapter of their lives.

Their happiness comes to an abrupt and tragic halt when Sam is brutally murdered in a seemingly senseless robbery. Molly is devastated by Sam's death and mourns him deperately, but unbeknownst to her, Sam is not completely lost to her. Sensing that his death wasn't just an accident, Sam remains on Earth - as a ghost determined to protect Molly.

Existing as a ghost isn't easy for Sam. He is unable to speak to Molly, completely invisible to the world, and has no powers that he's aware of. Frustrated and desperate, Sam happens upon self-proclaimed medium, Eda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg) who admits to being nothing more than a phony. Surprisingly she is wrong. Sam is able to speak to Eda Mae - in fact, she is the only one who can hear him. Terrified, she demands that Sam never speak to her again, but he can't resist since she may be the only person who can help him protect Molly.

Gradually, he wins Eda Mae's trust and she agrees to help him talk to Molly and warn her that what happened to Sam might happen to her next. Molly is understandably skeptical at first, but eventually believes Eda Mae when she is able to offer evidence that Sam is indeed watching over her. Working together, the three of them are able to figure out what happened to Sam and why. When they realize that they're dealing with some dangerous people, they concoct a devious plan to get their revenge, and help Sam move on.

No one could've portrayed Sam better than Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore was completely adorable. Ghost is a truly great love story and is still as touching 15 years after it's release. If you've never seen this film, rent it! You'll rage at Sam's untimely death and cry with Molly. You'll be touched by the strength of their love. You'll laugh at Eda Mae's sarcastic wit, and you'll cringe at what lies ahead for the evil people who killed Sam. As the movie promised, "You will believe."

Extra! Extra!

Tidbits About the Movie: Molly Ringwald tried out for the role of Molly, but it went to Demi instead. Poor Molly!

Songworthy: "Unchained Melody" - The Righteous Brothers *This film's use of the song revived it's popularity for a long time.
