  • Director: Jason Reitman

When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.



This was a fun movie! With a lot of nods to the original movie. The fourth movie, but only the third in the original Ghostbusters series (the 2016 version with an all women cast as Ghostbusters is not part of this)

It’s great to see the original actors back, albeit in small roles and without Harold Ramis (who passed away in 2014)

Kuddos as well to Jason Reitman. Such a pity we lost his father Ivan recently.

And it’s also fun to meet the new characters. Paul Rudd is one of the funniest actors and he fits just perfect in this setting. The kid playing ‘Podcast’ (Logan Kim) has a great future ahead of him! Finn Wolfhard had already worn a Ghostbusters suit (in Stranger Things) so we knew he’d fit well! Carrie Coon as the single mother does a great job! And then there’s Phoebe (played by McKenna Grace)… look closely at her appearance and it might give you a hint to whom she’s family (in the movie)

I loved everything about this movie, honestly. It’s got action, adventure, comedic relief, Gozer and Zuul (where’s the Keymaster and the Gatekeeper?) and the original Busters are there… nostalgic and fun!

Ooooh one more: Slimer!!! But he’s older as well 🤣

And one more thing: please give us the sequel!!!! 🙏
