I agree with your sentiment overall I actually think this franchise could work without the original Ghostbusters but I’m also a fan of the television series Extreme Ghostbusters ironically I’m doing a review of this film also in a few days
I think you have to have the right people if you use a new cast. I don’t think the premise – scientists catching ghosts – is what makes Ghostbusters special. I think what makes it special are those specific actors. In order to make a new movie with new people you have to have people of equal stature who can be funny and work together. GB 2016 didn’t have that. Of those four actresses only Kristen Wiig is a true comedy genius, and it felt like she was bored and wasn’t even trying.
I honestly don’t think Ghostbusters II is as bad as people say it is. Yeah, it’ll never hold a light to the original movie but it’s fine on its own.
My thoughts exactly.
I used to be a fan of this movie, but when I try to rewatch it again I can’t find it that enjoyable. Just too many story elements that don’t make sense, and it feels a bit too much like it’s trying to copy the formula of the original. I don’t hate it, but I’m not a big fan. Then again, I think the first two seasons of the animated series were better than the movies.
The animated series was pretty spectacular, and it holds up.
Well, it holds up until we get to the “Slimer and the Real Ghostbusters” era.
This movie is over hated. It’s not perfect but it’s a fun sequel but I’m the guy that likes all the Ghostbusters movies
Like I said, I think if this was the only Ghostbusters movie ever made people would love it. It just falls short next to the original.
