"Ghostbusters: Afterlife (Jason Reitman, 2020)"

A very underwhelming trailer. Looks like Stranger Things with Ghostbusters.

Plus the fandom kinds killed off any enthusiasm I had for this franchise.

This is the same dude who passed on the first re-boot, saying that he'd be the wrong person to direct a Ghostbusters movie.

I don't remember the article that it was in (this was a few years ago), but it's also in the trivia for the last Ghostbusters reboot in imdb.

Basically free of laughs start to finish. Some of that's an intentional tonal shift by this movie, but some of it is just... bad writing. Reitman does fine with some of the character-y stuff in the first half-- even if the characters aren't memorable, they're charming enough-- but he can't do a big finale like he's trying to do here. Just an ugly mess of a finale with terrible CGI.

For the most part I thought they were able to reference the first movie while letting the new story/characters do their own thing, but then the ending went way too far into nostalgia territory. The cameos were very shoehorned in. And like, let Bill Murray riff some stuff rather than scripting bad “This demon is my ex” jokes. I enjoyed it overall, but the lack of jokes will probably make this pretty forgettable tbh.

but not really great as a standalone movie. don't think I'd ever really want to watch it again


SPOILERS:
the mini stay-pufts were easily my favorite part. I thought since it leaned so heavily on the first two they should have just used Slimer instead of Metal Muncher...I would have enjoyed it more if opening the trap unleashed a new ghost/villain we weren't already aware was trapped, rather than just bringing back the Zuul/keymaster/gatekeeper. I felt kind of disappointed that they went with that
