Ghostbusters 3D

The third Ghostbusters film - a reboot from Bridemaids director Paul Feig and two of its stars, Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy. They are joined by Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth.

Another Ghostbusters movie has long been speculated (the originals were made in 1984 and '89), spearheaded by co-creator Dan Akroyd. After years of failed attempts, rumours suggest Sony Pictures are now planning a series of inter-connected Ghostbusters movies to follow, with Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt potentially headlining a follow-up to Feig's.

Both funnier and scarier than Ivan Reitman’s 1984 original, [although it] doesn’t do nearly enough to innovate on what has come before.

For all its warm-hearted fun, well-crafted thrills, careful nostalgia and girl-powered gadgetry, this fast-paced family film doesn't always feel like a natural fit for Hollywood's favourite genre-bender.

Here’s a summer movie starring a girl squad proud of its big brains and tacky jumpsuits. You could call that a supernatural event in itself.

The 2016 vintage of Ghostbusters speaks to its time with the same withering comic accuracy and hot-air-balloon-sized sense of fun as the 1984 original.

The new, cheerfully silly "Ghostbusters" is that rarest of big-studio offerings - a movie that is a lot of enjoyable, disposable fun.

Though hats are respectfully doffed, this is a four-woman show, deftly managed to allow all the leads a chance to showcase their own distinct brands of comedy.

While the dialogue doesn't labour the point, this is a film about women brought together by a shared intellectual passion, shrugging off the mostly male authority figures who try to put them in their place.

Some of you are going to love it. And some of you are going to hate it. Me, I'm happy I chose the former.

Despite the inspired idea of rebooting the Ghostbusters as gal-geeks, the movie's not great either.

It's all busy-ness, noise and chaos, with zero thrills and very little sustainable comic buoyancy.

Honestly, if you’re upset that Hollywood dared remake a classic then you need to get out more. Heck they’ve remade BEN HUR (again), done another STAR WARS (again), another MAGNIFICENT 7 (again, again), and by the time I finish this sentence they’ll have rebooted the BATMAN, TRANSFORMERS and SPIDER-MAN franchises again (again). If you’re upset that the...

Seeing the trailer for this the last few months has been torture. Not in anticipation for this film coming out - but because the trailer is AWFUL. The movie, however was great. Perfectly paced, actually funny with some pretty expensive looking special effects. I however have not seen the original or only seen it as a small child. It was nice to see cameos...
