New Ghostbusters Movie

I recently went and saw the new Ghostbusters movie at the cinema and was quite surprised with just how good it actually was. I’ve always been and will always be a Ghostbusters fan, I loved the original and the sequel. Plus how can you not love listening to such an amazing theme song. I am pleased with just how good this remake turned out.

Perfecting Casting

What an amazing cast, they were fantastic and the characters well written. I admit that when I first heard about the remake and it being an all-female team I was unsure of just how it would go. It worked amazingly well. They created a great team bond with each other and they brought a different sort of humour to the franchise. It was very entertaining and made the film that much more enjoyable to watch. I am a lover of strong lead female characters and this movie was full of them. Plus the addition of the dumb male secretary was rather interesting and entertaining.

Being a fan of the original movies I absolutely loved how most of the original cast made a cameo in the film. What a great addition for Ghostbuster fans like myself. Plus it wouldn’t be a Ghostbusters film without the appearance of Slimer. And it was entertaining to see Mr. Staypuft there too.

Great Ghostbusters Scenes

The special effects in the film were incredible. When you think about the fact that the original film came out over 30 years ago it is no surprise to see how much they have advanced and how they can create much more realistic scenes for us.

There were some truly amazing scenes in this movie and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the entire movie. I don’t want to spoil the film for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, but I’ll comment on some of my favourites. I absolutely loved the scene where, Melissa McCarthy’s character Yates’ is possessed. Her acting was incredible and her facial expressions had me in hysterics.

I was a little disappointed though with the scene of military personal all lined up. I was waiting for them to all break into a dance but it didn’t happen and I felt let down. However, I was happy to see there was a dance scene included it was just played during the credits. It was brilliant, and I’m glad it was there because it would have felt wrong without it.

Although I will always prefer the original, the new version of the theme song was pretty good too. Catchy and fit in with the movie well, and it still had most aspects of the original. Keeping the original Ghostbusters fans happy.

Recommendation – Hell Yes!

Would I recommend that people watch this film? 100% YES.

What a fantastic way to reimagine a memorable classic. Even for the true fans of the original Ghostbusters, you will still enjoy this film.
