Who you gonna call......

PRAISE: I still remember sitting in the theater watching the first Ghostbusters with my father,and that's what Ghostbusters Afterlife is about...memories with a story about a single mother and her two children move to a new town, they soon discover they have a connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.
The cast including : Finn Wolfhard, Ernie Hudson, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Celeste O’Connor, Logan Kim, Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, and McKenna Gracedoes well.
Grace She is the standout and I was amazed at how she was able to capture some of the late great Harold Ramis's mannerisms.
I'm glad they kept the kids in a new town cliches to a minimum.
Sure there are some funny jokes, one liners,fun ghosts, and great SFX but at the core of this movie is a great story about family and sacrifice.
There are some really nice touches and tributes to the original cast and movies.
I'm not sure I'd there will be more Ghostbusters movies but I hope they land in the capable hands of Jason Reitman.
If you can stick around for the 2 after credits scenes.

PROBLEMS: The film definitely starts to lose its originality in its last 30 minutes.
There's an odd laid back reaction some of the characters have to other worldly situations.
This is the third movie I've seen this year that has a simple one sentence answer or explanation for something that I just couldn't get on board with.
It bothered me that situations that were EXTREMELY unforgettable had mainly become just footnotes.

Scale of 1 to 10 a 7½

I will say it was a 8/10. I enjoyed it alot and even brought back memories as a kid being obsessed with Ghostbusters. The ending had me in the feels and def interested to see where they are going with this with the last after credits scene.
