I'm a writer/director from Philly and an avid cinephile.
You know what, I'm just gonna come out and say it.... Ghostbusters 2016 understood Ghostbusters better than this movie.
There's some cool stuff but the entire last act is just HEY! REMEMBER THIS? and they make a particular choice I knew they were going to make but it was still so upsetting to see it in action.
