The screenplay for Ghostbusters is actually pretty underwhelming if you only focus on the details.
But if you zoom out and look at the macro-scale of writing — coming up with a premise and figuring out how to execute it — Ghostbusters stands as a great example of the importance of execution.
It’s not just what your story is about, it’s how you tell it.
