    I think I remember Ghostbusters II more fondly than how good it actually is.

    Because Ghostbusters II isn't a *great* movie...Though it isn't a horrible one either. It's...just more of the same.

    Yet a little unfunny.

    As a sequel, narratively, Ghostbusters II is brilliant. It builds on the first in the way of repercussions and the reality of dealing with Zuul in the first movie. The characters have evolved in the five years since the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man accident,…

    A movie that didn't hated but I thought it was okay.

    Yes it's a carbon copy of the much better original, but it's still nice to be able to hang out with the old gang even if they're a pale shadow of what they once were.

    Before my mom would take me to pre school. I would literally watch this movie everyday before we'd leave. And I would always rewind it and watch the ending about 20 times.

    Nowadays, sequels that match or exceed the quality of the original are not unheard of. In today's Hollywood, the first film in a franchise is usually a financial water-tester, and is beholden to an origin story that cannot be deviated from. Sometimes, (see X2, Spider-Man 2, Empire, Winter Soldier), getting the introductory chapter out of the way opens the door to greater storytelling opportunities, due to the luxury of working with previously established…

    Like the first film which I re-watched earlier today, Ghostbusters II was a personal favorite of mine as a child. This sequel lacks the charm and wit from the first film but it's still fun, and I really enjoyed showing it to my kids for the first time. My son Yorel is 3 (He turns 4 next month) and Thane turned 2 back in June. They both enjoyed it and were really into singing the theme song. Now I get…

    All of the things I loved about Ghostbusters hold true in its sequel and that's the problem.

    The exposition and shlocky setup to bring the Ghostbusters back together is just bad writing. The editing of this movie is horrible and if the performances weren't so memorable and the characters so beloved I would have rated this movie a 1.5 out of 5.

    This movie on re-watch is garbage and while a few years ago I would have loved to see…

    "You think there's a connection between this Vigo character and the slime?"
    "Is the atomic weight of cobalt 58.9?"

    I think I slightly prefer this to the original. I know I did as a kid. We recorded this off the Disney channel in 1990 and it was easily my favorite movie for several years. Watching it now, it does have a different atmosphere than Ghostbusters, which feels more joke driven while here, narrative takes over. The jokes here have an…

    en mi mente era más divertida. no que no lo sea, pero su temática ("todos debemos ser más buena onda y querernos más") me parece mucho menos afortunada que la primera. con todo, mantiene algunos de sus desplantes ojetes --el personaje de bill murray y su programa, por ejemplo-- y muchas cosas muy divertidas --¡el titanic! ¡la estatua de la libertad con los ghostbusters manejándola!

    una secuela que no-está-a-la-altura-del-original pero que aún así lo hace bastante bien. me habría encantado ver la idea de max landis para ghostbusters iii realizada: su pitch, acá.

    Not as good as the first, but still fun.

    I know I'm rating this film way higher than it honestly deserves, but dammit, it's my score and I'll do whatever I want. In all seriousness though, I'm a sucker for this film. It's one of my most watched movies of all time. I've probably seen this close to 100 times. Its re-watch factor is incredibly high in my opinion — probably because I'm a huge fan of the original, which by the way, is probably in my top ten…
