Is this the one where the new cast will be expected to carry the series on their own?

Spoiler
Good luck.

Urgh, after the abysmal 'member berries fest that was the last one and the god awful 2016 reboot, I'd sooner they just leave it be.  There's only so much eye-rape that a man can take.

I think the silver lining is that at least Ivan got to see his son's love letter to him before he passed.

Man this really f**king sucks!

Ghostbusters is always the first thing to come to mind when I think of the early years of my childhood. I could do with watching Both GB, GB2 and Afterlife all in one sitting soon. See you on the other side, Reitman. Thank you.

I enjoyed and liked the film :)

I didn't watch the original movies (or I watched them when I was too little and can't remember much) but I know the basic plot and such.

I think the final act tries to bring back a lot of things from the first movies and I didn't feel like it made a favour to us who are not that much into GB. Probably should have gone with something fresh instead.

Switched off after five minutes. Utter garbage. The dialogue amongst the school children was pathetic.
Oh I gotta agree the kids are SOOO annoying in the first act of the movie.

But then it gets much better.
A lot of the enjoyment of Afterlife is contingent on being familiar with and liking the first Ghostbusters movie. The number of callbacks and fan service elements is through the roof and the movie coasts really heavily on nostalgia. If you liked it without having seen the original movie, I suspect you'd have loved it if you had seen the original movie.

You missed out, the movie becomes stellar at precisely the 6th minute and never stops.

And the school children do not appear in the first 5 minutes. ;D

I just got bukkaked by this movie.

I don't know how to process this.

With a big martini glass?

I wish Bill Murray could have been more smarmy.  He's really mellowed.

If there's another one, I sure hope it gets back to its NYC roots and doesn't take place in Bumblef**k, Oklahoma again.
