Ghostbusters!

Saw Ghostbusters last night aaaaand… I absolutely LOVED it! I wanted to post a very brief, spoiler-free review because I felt like this movie has been so insanely (and unfairly) beat down with negativity and hate before it was even given a chance, that I really wanted to share something positive. First of all, I’m a huge Ghostbusters fan. It’s one of my favorite franchises of all time. So naturally, I was hyped about this movie from the start. But I’ll be honest, I did get a little nervous after seeing the very first trailer for it. But I’m so glad I didn’t let that (or all the hate generated online towards it) detour me from actually seeing the movie because I enjoyed every minute of it! It was SO much funnier than I expected, and I mean laugh-out-loud in the theater funny! And that’s what was so special about the original Ghostbusters… it completely worked as an action-adventure movie AND a comedy AND somehow managed to balance elements of supernatural horror and spooky fun! And to me, this movie succeeded in the same way. All 4 of the lead women were hilarious, Chris Hemsworth was an absolute riot, the special effects were cool as hell and visually arresting… honestly, there isn’t much about this movie NOT to like! This movie was so much fun! So to director Paul Feig: well done, sir! And to all the women in this motion picture: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones… you guys rock! Can’t wait for the sequel 🙂 ghostbusters-2016_256796_2.jpg
