It just wasn't very fresh.

It just didn't click for me.

For everything that doesn't work, there's so much more that does. These Ghostbusters are solid, and this film effectively riffs on the original and creates its own thing.

2016's Ghostbusters comes as a sip of water in a historic drought. Feig has pulled off the impossible by successfully reworking an unlikely masterpiece, and everyone involved deserves major kudos.

Worst of all, the movie just isn't funny.

We found them all more than capable of taking on the action as well as the comedy. It just could have been put together and paced better, but it's still fun, especially if you see it with a big audience.

Ghostbusters may not be a film for the ages, but it's definitely deserving of a thumbs up...maybe even a million of them.

McCarthy isn't funny and her voice is annoyingly nasal. Wiig is slightly better but mostly uninspired. Jones adds a few moments of hilarity and a streetwise toughness that works most of the time, but the real star is McKinnon.

It's as if, in exorcizing the original's misogyny, Ghostbusters has at last managed to find the soul it thought it had all along.

The Ghostbusters are back, and while they may not look the way some "fans" would like, Paul Feig has assembled a terrific new cast with the potential to launch a franchise well worth investing your time and money in.

Certainly not a fail, but not a scare on the original.

What Feig and company did by inverting gender expectations was create a reboot with intent and purpose, bringing a wholly new vibrancy and dynamic to expected events.

It is all great escapist fun, perfectly in the spirit of the original.

Some fans have already made their decision, but if you go into the movie with an open mind, this is one of the better remakes Hollywood has produced in recent years.

I honestly hope there is a sequel because I think that will be even better.

It's a silly, funny, scary romp into the other side, that leaves you grinning with pure joy and marveling at some positive female role models.

Ghostbusters isn't as good a movie as the original, but there's no shame in failing to reach the level of a classic. It's still a fun and funny film with plenty going for it particularly a wildly talented cast that is pretty obviously having a ball.

It's fun. It has some fantastic performances by a very talented cast, who are the new Ghostbusters.
January 15, 2019
Is it on the same level as the original? Certainly not. But it is still a film that stands quite well on its own merits.

While it gives the occasional nod to fun gags from the first movie, the universe is entirely different and has another story to tell.
