    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    ★★★★½

    I already knew going into this that it would be a tough watch for anybody grieving a parent. This trigger warning was accurate- the last ten minutes were pretty rough for me. But overall, I really loved this. It felt like a callback to the 1990s Disney live-action films I grew up with (definite Honey I Shrunk the Kids vibes up in here). And for once, I thought advancements in special effects technology actually aided the storytelling. A perfect way to bring Ghostbusters into the 21st century (and yes, I’m choosing to ignore the lady-Ghostbusters altogether. Woof. )

    The plot is slow, but this is one of the most aesthetically pleasing movies ever! The clothes, the hair, the apartments- I’ve died and gone to early-‘60s heaven.

    As good as #1. Watching the montage of the Apes shopping on Rodeo Drive, checking into the Rege-Bev-Wilsh, all set to the music of a 1970s game show, is everything I never knew I needed. And Ricardo Montalbán!!!! What a mensch.

    This was… fine. Nowhere near as good as the original ones (other than #5- anything is better than that). The original Ape movies felt like they all had something important to say, and this just felt like a random collection of scenes haphazardly pieced together. No theme or point whatsoever. Also, relegating Pericles to only the beginning and end felt like a mistake. This was HIS movie. Everyone else was just lucky to be there.
