  1. Ghostbusters II is such a lazy effort that the formula machinery is laid bare for all to see. It suffers from writing that is obvious, sloppy, and unimaginative.

    The best thing in the movie is Peter MacNicol as Dana's boss at the museum, a slippery character with an incomprehensible accent. [16 Jun 1989, p. E1]

Ghostbusters is a great movie in the 80's and I really enjoyed it. The ghosts were better this time. The theme song is back. The plot and storyline is good. I enjoyed the part when the Statue of Liberty came to "life". The Second Ghostbusters is very good and I recommend you watch it and once again, if ya hate Ghostbusters, you're silly as J. Bieber. I really recommend you watch this one, and unlike 1, this one is underrated. Full Review »

If you saw it years ago and got caught up in the flow of thinking it's bad, watch it again with adult eyes and you'll see there is a lot of goodness to take away from this. Granted it's the family friendly Ghostbusters, not the one targeting a young adult audience, but there's still a lot of quality here. Trust me, try it, watch it and analyse it with your geek eyes.

    [ Written on May 21st, 2016 ] Despite it being a sequel to the original Ghostbusters, I don't think this one did such a success in my opinion.[ Written on May 21st, 2016 ] Despite it being a sequel to the original Ghostbusters, I don't think this one did such a success in my opinion. Mainly it's because how the original topped the golf club like a hole-in-one, but the sequel just went off like it couldn't want to do it anymore. Hey, at least they tried on this one. Full Review »
