    RIP Ivan Reitman
    Sad to hear Ivan Reitman has passed away today. Of course his helming as director of such films as Meatballs and Ghostbusters are frequently the movies that first come to people's minds, I think his role as producer bringing such creative projects to life were equally as important; Rabid, Shivers, Heavy Metal - some truly classic films we are blessed with having in our cultural zeitgeist. One of the proud Canadian exports to Hollywoodland. His comedic stylings always had a sound grounding in reality, which I think is why they related so widely. He leaves behind a strong legacy, carried forward in no small part through the influence he had on his son, Jason, to follow in his footsteps. May he RIP.

    I'm glad that you mentioned his earlier work as a Producer and Executive Producer with Cronenberg. Ivan was also the Music Supervisor for "Shivers" and "Rabid".
