Managed to view Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Much better than 2016 but full of nonsense like when Paul Rudd is the only guy in the Walmart and it's basically just a Walmart / Baskin Robbins commercial. It's also just too convenient in places, everything they need is just there, no effort required.

Just saw Spider-Man.

Best of the lot so far. Very very well done.
My son's seen it. He thought it was great too. I couldn't though as I can't leave the wife alone with the daughter as she's too unpredictable :(

I enjoyed it. I'll always see it as the third movie. The 2016 one was an abomination and should be forgotten. It wasn't even the acting that made the 2016 one bad, it was the shit script and terrible vfx.

Oh totally but I'm more excited by the possibilities from the ending than the film itself. It's just disjointed, needed a longer runtime and more character time but it didn't get them so it pumped the nostalgia button hard.

Aye, that's what I'm on about, I'd love to see that plus
it's got all the right threads again, the new Ghostbusters cartoon to draw on the whole new generation thing, in New York, if the containment unit explodes it justifies bringing in a new team, they can do stupid training skits with the originals if they choose to sign up again, I also kinda love Winston being the success it was one of the most well written bits of dialogue in the film

It's perfectly fine, way better than 2016 because it's not busting (no pun intended) a gut trying too hard to be funny by going "hey look at me, I'm wacky, aren't I just so wacky? TELL ME I'M WACKY!!!".

The story just doesn't make sense though if you look at it objectivly. Like
There's literally no reaction to the ghosts starting to turn up. Like for nostalgia it's super cool they put the cab driver in the diner but he's just there doing nothing, it makes no sense. It's like muncher, he's only a marginally different spook from Slimer because they needed to establish that he ate metal before the point in the film they needed him to eat the metal. There's also basically nobody around ever so the kids can go anywhere but you don't know how they get there.
