Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Ghostbusters should had led to a successful franchise. The 1984 release was a monster box office success for Columbia Pictures. A fun, goofy film.

The sequel proved to be problematic. Inflated egos of the cast and the creative team did not help. David Puttnam who was head of Columbia vetoed a sequel as the script was not good enough.

Ghostbusters 2 released in 1989 barely scraped $100 million. Other movies such as Indiana Jones and Batman did much better at the box office.

The female led reboot in 2016 managed to upset some fans of the original. I thought it was ok with a thin premise.

Jason Reitman, son of the original director Ivan has rebooted Ghostbusters again. This time he is a bit too reverential of the original movie.

The first half takes a while to get going. It focuses on a single mother Callie who is behind on her rent.

After the death of her father, she moves to her late father's farm in the small town of Summerville, Oklahoma with her two kids Trevor and Phoebe. The locals thought that her dad was an eccentric.

Something spooky is going in Summerville. Phoebe's science teacher Gary Grooberson notes strange earthquakes have been happening.

Phoebe also learns that her grandfather Egon Spengler was a Ghostbuster who saved New York back in the 1980s.

Phoebe discovers her grandfather's ghostbusting equipment. Trevor finds the beaten up Ghostbusters car. Soon they are catching ghosts and in the nearby mountain.

It seems Egon was convinced that something from inside the mountain would destroy the world. Now it is up to Phoebe, Trevor, Lucky and Podcast to save the world. Maybe with a little help from some old friends.

The film is fun once it gets going. It did remind me a lot of those 1980s teen friendly films. Gremlins, Goonies and Ghostbusters. However at times it felt too much like a carbon copy of the original.

It should had been more goofier and less reverential. It was good to see the old guys show up in the final scenes. The CGI Harold Ramis was very good. In fact he looked better than Bill Murray who looked more like a ghost.

Dirt Farmer

The film takes place in Summerville, Oklahoma where Spangler ended up to prevent the apocalypse. The film is dedicated to Harold Ramis who passed in 2014 and again in the opening scene. His daughter (Carrie Coon) and family end up at his old farmhouse where they discover their legacy and learn to fight Gozer again.

The ghosts have not changed from the first feature. There are appearances from the original cast. Sigourney Weaver is listed in the IMDB credits, but I don't recall seeing her. Mckenna Grace as twelve year old Phoebe stole the whole film. It centered on her and kids saving the world with some help from the original Ghostbusters: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts.

The iconic song didn't come in until the end credits. Not what I expected.

Guide: No swearing, sex, or nudity.

Surprisingly good.

I'll be honest, after the last Ghostbusters movie, I wasn't keen on it, reluctantly I went along, and have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It feels like a worthy successor to the original film, it doesn't just ignore the past, it supports it. I would advise seeing the original movie ahead of this, as there is a lot of nostalgia surrounding it. I feel like they wanted it to respect the original, that it does.

Some really nice special effects, a few perhaps not so good, but that's just me being picky. A good atmosphere, and a really good pace, there's nothing slow about the film, it doesn't lull, nor did it feel overlong. It's a bit goofy, it doesn't take itself too seriously.

Great to see Dan Ackroyd, Bill Murray, and many other faces, if you're a fan of the original, you really will appreciate seeing them all here. Paul Rudd was awesome I thought, he stood out for me.
