FUNNIES: Ray Parker Jr Theme Songs – (Key & Peele)

We’ve mentioned the very brilliant sketches of Key & Peele here on Retro Ramble in the past, here’s one of our favourite recent sketches featuring Ray Parker Jr, the artist responsible for the Ghostbusters theme song, a neat segway into our upcoming episode for Hallowe’en.

Back in 1984, the Ghostbusters soundtrack was such a huge success that it purportedly generated an additional $20 million to the films overall takings and made Ray Parker Jr an overnight star.

What’s he been up to since?

Check out the video below and be sure not to miss out on this fantastic opportunity.

FUNNIES: Honest Trailer – Batman (1989)

Honest Trailers – Batman (1989)

Obviously, in our podcast episode we’ve already gone into great detail to cover our fondest memories of the Tim Burton 90s classic film but have you checked our Screen Junkies take with the Honest Trailers Batman video?

In our podcast we focussed on our memories growing up with the film. Why it endured extensive production battles to make it a reality back in the late 1980s. In a slightly different and always welcome tone, the Honest Trailer below is a great parody of Tim Burton’s classic, paying respect when and where its due.

Check out the Honest Trailer for Batman (1989) below or directly on YouTube.

FUNNIES: What if The Avengers was made in the 1990’s

Gone are the days of the classic trailer with the growly voiceover man – something we miss here at Retro Ramble. What if such an approach was taken with the blockbusters of today? Well, look no further, as the good people at Vulture put together a trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, complete with a mid-nineties, Bruckheimer-esque spin. Enjoy.

Sure this was uploaded a while ago but here’s a great little compilation video bringing all the best examples of Nicolas Cage going cray-cray.

Further proof of why he has more range than most actors, something backed up by the far ranging (good & bad) films he’s given us over the years.

What’s your favourite Crazy Cage moment, let us know in the comments!
