Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters ★★

The first Ghostbusters is unique, weird, gross and bizarre when this is just generic, bland and tame. 

The cast is great, but isn’t utilised properly, I found so little of this movie funny - it’s far too quippy. Characters don’t tell “jokes” in the original, it’s a situational comedy, which humour derives from the clear personality traits of the team. Here, they’re just all making cringey, crude and dumb jokes. 

It’s difficult to compliment this movie, not because it is without merit, but because everything that isn’t bad is just bland, generic and flat. The action, the third act, the characters - are all just incredibly bland to me.
