By November 23, 2021Podcasts

Ghostbusters Afterlife movie review!  Jason Reitman follows in his father, Director Ivan Reitman’s footsteps with the latest Ghostbusters film that has plenty of fan service, nostalgia, and heart, but how does it stack up against Ghostbusters I & II?  Is this a true sequel to finally bookend the trilogy or a brand new chapter in the Ghostbusters world?  We geek out over our favorite moments in the film, what we thought of the cast, identify the core formulae to making a successful Ghostbusters movie and offer constructive criticisms for the filmmakers moving forward. After listening to the episode, we’d love to hear from you! Post your comments below detailing your experiences with the topic listed above or leave us feedback on what you thought of the show.
