What movies aped Ghostbusters?

I can think of a handful of films that tried to recreate the Ghostbusters formula. Men in Black, R.I.P.D., Evolution, Howard the Duck, The Watch... What are some others?

What are some action films (especially 80s movies) with drug dealers?

I know that taking out drug dealers was a common film trope with the "War on Drugs". But I need to think of some and I'm coming up short. The more ridiculous the better, such as over the top 80's films starring Steven Segal, Jean Claude Van Damme, Arnold Schwarzenegger, etc. [more inside]

Why can’t my movies be as convenient as my music?

DVDs and Blu Ray discs are such a pain with their ability to be scratched and the need to find where a disc is, is it in the right case, etc. I find myself often drawn to standard definition “on demand” movies on cable (free ones) instead of searching my own high definition or DVD movies.
