Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Ghostbusters: Afterlife ★½

the first act of this was fine, it was good setup without relying too heavily on the franchise its apart of. the second act started to feel self important and too familiar. then the third act hits you with nonstop references to the original movie with nothing that makes itself stand out. once the scene where paul rudd is in walmart happens, the movie takes a hard dive in quality. i liked the little girl, her podcasting friend, carrie coon, and paul rudd. sadly, they all get sidetracked by the end of it. there is also a horribly offensive thing that happens in the end, especially knowing how harold ramis felt about the ghostbusters franchise.
