    Meh. I wasn't really impressed. To me, it was just another overrated, cheesy 80s comedy that's inexplicably popular. I didn't laugh once. I love Bill Murray, but this movie just failed to entertain me. 10 years 3 months ago

    The original Ghost Busters of course still stands up, and for movie buffs, there's nothing quite like seeing those original old school effects. I think they're part of the fun, and though we can do a lot more today, that doesn't necessarily means we can do better. Still quite good, I must say. It's in some ways a purer film than the new one, not just because it's not built on the bones of the past, but because the characters a more clearly archetypal. Brain - Heart - Mouth - I wonder what Eddie Murphy's version of Winston would have been like, given an expanded role. But as it is, it's iconic, and eminently watchable. 5 years 3 months ago
