A tight enough. Decent cast, entertaining story, lots of cameos from the old cast and references to other movies and it looks pretty good. A sequel that would surpass the originals should not be expected: although the originals are not brilliant either, the audience does not succeed. The film certainly doesn't deserve the hatred it gets. Also takes a risk with a rather fat and another somewhat weird woman in the cast that many do not like. I didn't have any problems with it, but the mix of characters just didn't work as well. The film does try new things in more ways, for example by turning gender issues around, even if the result is meager, it is precisely with such an (otherwise unpretentious) reboot that it is the right choice to try new things, which makes it even more interesting to watch. to watch.

It is also striking that so many A-actors, such as Charles Dance, have been satisfied with a supporting role.

Incidentally, it is obvious that the ghosts are never meant to be scary, they were not in the previous parts either.

And the originals were kind of bland too. But with more comedic talent by Moranis, Akroyd and Murray and also the always good Sigourney Weaver. You can't just recreate that.

A fairly courageous attempt all in all with an acceptable result.

Expectations were very low, but a remake of Ghostbusters is a must see, I thought. Well, this remake can safely be skipped. It has become a film with failed childish humor and nothing else. The idea, four women like Ghostbusters, could have turned out pretty well if they'd worked it out well, but this remake is only meant as a bad parody of the original. Done with difficulty, skip. 1*

Ooh what a nasty movie this was.

I can still tolerate Kristen Wiig, but Melissa McCarthy's voice is already through the marrow and I've really seen enough of that Kate McKinnon now to know that she's definitely not funny. Horrible.

And yes Leslie Jones is a comedienne, but phew she also just plays the screaming black woman.

Ok, I think Hemsworth as a dumb blonde is funny and I also appreciated the cameos, but a movie shouldn't have that.

No, I should have used my pathe card last night and spent my time on another movie.

That this Ghostbusters didn't get a single Razzie nomination in early 2017 is a mystery to me. This one should have won a few as far as I'm concerned....
