Howdy strangers! How is the weekend treating you? Oh, that’s interesting. Please tell me more….Oh, well. I watched the new Ghostbuster flick. You know, THAT Ghostbusters flick. I’m going to get right into it and provide what I liked and what I disliked.
Lets start this list out with something positive.
- Ray Parker’s Ghostbusters Theme
- The Harold Ramis Statue Cameo (so cool!)
- Bill Murray Cameo
- Michael McDonald (of Mad TV fame)
- Kristen Wiig
- Firehouse cameo
- Hearing the proton pack sound effect
- DMX song
- The ghosts looked magnificent!
- Annie Potts cameo
- Chris Hemsworth had a few funny moments
- Dan Aykroyd’s cameo
- Slimer stealing the Ecto-1
- Stay Puft balloon
- The No-Ghost boss
- Ernie Hudson’s cameo
- Sigourney Weaver’s cameo
Now let’s go into what I disliked. It may seem like nitpicking but meh.
- It didn’t come on like the classic GB flicks
- People tried too hard to be funny (which happens quite a bit)
- Fart/Queef joke which are never funny, yet they are added to everything now
- Rowan wasn’t very memorable as a villain
- The origins of the No-Ghost
- Two people died in a Ghostbusters flick. Just seems weird to me.
- The Ozzy cameo
- Slimer’s girlfriend
- Ghostbusters theme by Missy Eliot and those other guys
I was actually surprised that I didn’t hate this. The films main problem was that the humor felt out of place. I laughed a few times but still. The movie was nothing special. I wasn’t expecting the Dark Knight of Ghostbusters flick. It’s just entertainment and I think if some little girls out there enjoy the movie and their childhood memories revolve around this movie, then that’s awesome!
