{July 15, 2016}   I saw Ghostbusters

I’m glad I did!

I was on the fence when I first heard about it and the first preview didn’t change my mind. I did, however, see the next preview and that changed my mind and I’m glad I took a chance. 

It wasn’t a remake, more of a revamp.  I can tell you if you stay to the VERY end, you’ll get a snippet of what’s to come, you know a sequel. But I won’t tell you what. 

What I will do is mention a few things that I liked and be aware, there will be little spoiler alerts, like who makes a cameo. Of course,  you could look at or read a review and I’m sure you’ll see it. 

You have your straight laced professor, Kristen Wiig, wacky ‘ghostologist’, yes I know that’s not what they’re called, Melissa McCarthy, her zany sidekick, Kate McKinnon, both scientists and then at some point the total ‘woman off the street’, Leslie Jones. It seemed like a who’s who of Saturday Night Live when I looked people up on Oh man, Chris Hemsworth was hysterical! He played the receptionist. Beautiful and dumb as a box of rocks!

There were some similarities and some nods to the originals, things like the fire station, the car, of course, the containment boxes. 

Then the cameos, original players cameos…spoiler alert…I’m not going to tell you who they were or where in the movie, just that they were there. There was a tribute to Harold Ramis early on, Bill Murray,  Dan Ackroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts, Ernie Hudson, even the Staypuff Marshmallow Man and Slimer! The only one missing was Rick Moranis, I kept waiting for him to appear, part of the reason I stayed to the end.  That and I learned to stay after all the Marvel movies. 

Bottom line, I enjoyed it thoroughly. Looking forward to seeing it again.
