Since then, heâ€™s been banged-up, beaten, broken, bludgeoned, and all sorts of other b-words. Heâ€™s met a 9-year-old assassin and been on a super hero team-up.

MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
25 years ago, the silver screen exploded with the fluffy remains of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow man.

All of this has led to the discussion of which Ghostbuster was their favorite.
