    A lot of people seem to hate this sequel but I actually think it's pretty good. It's a better shot film for sure and the effects here hold up better. There are some truly cheesy themes here but it's Ghostbusters and that's ok in this world.

    My niece spent the night with me, and while I had originally hoped to take her to the Louisville Palace to see Creature from the Black Lagoon, she soured on the idea around 6:00 and there was just no way to kill the time until the 8:00 show time so I abandoned that. (Which sucks, because that meant I missed all ten Universal Monsters movies they played this year.)

    When we got back, she browsed my DVD library and decided…

    Like the summer of 84, the summer of 89 had some fantastic movies. Unfortunately, you can kinda tell Murray was starting to lose interest here.

    Bringing the gang back together five years later; this sequel follows the formula of the original film, but this time everything feels a little stilted and half-assed - no hidden secret that all involved in the first film and this sequel never intended for a sequel to be made - to create a still fun ride but not a patch on its predecessor.

    Gigantic drop in quality, but still quite a bit of camp fun.

    The first Ghostbusters is without a doubt one of the very finest and entertaining movies of its type, but from all that I've read, it turned out like that purely out of accident. They got lucky, they caught the lighting in a bottle.

    As expected, Ghostbusters 2 pales in comparison. It feels smaller, emptier and somehow they managed to make a NYC movie where NYC doesn't feel like a living city. It really loses pulse and dies in the middle,…

    One of the reasons the first Ghostbusters struck such a chord in the early 80's, and as a franchise continues to linger on in the public consciousness despite bringing nothing new to the table in a quarter of a century, is because Ivan Reitman's film knew exactly how daft the whole endeavour was and played up to it, casting gifted comic actors as the heroes involved & taking previously terrifying elements such as ghosts, demons & Gods & making them cheesy, comical and…

    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,…

    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.
