Ghostbusters

Okay, so I vaguely remember things about the original Ghostbusters but I can't actually remember ever watching it? But I have a friend - @TricksyLiesmith - who loves 80s films, so I was prepared to go along with her and thought I'd probably find it fun. Then there were all those noises about having women play the lead characters and the guys being jokes and, ugh, how awful this was and it must be stopped...and I admit in the face of this my brain went: film, take my money. So, disclaimer if needed, that's where I stood when we went to the pictures yesterday.

Folks, this is film is hugely enjoyable. I was not prepared to like it this much. I laughed A LOT. And it's just fun. Yes, there's some feminism in there, but it's average 'this is what all ladies put up with' feminism and some amusing jokes about and around being a woman; no man-hating, in your face, explosive feminism as bemoaned by internet boys. Lots of in your face ghosts and slime though. And jumpy moments, clever moments, comedy. I'd like to watch this again some time, yes please.

And @TricksyLiesmith told me that as a huge fan of the original film she really loved it and thought all the Easter eggs worked really well. So love all 'round.

Also, I know most people on my f-list will have been trained by Marvel, but just in case, if you go to see this do stay until the very end because there's lots of extra credit scenes and amusing credits and an end-end extra credit scene. Like, ALL THE EXTRA CREDIT SCENES. Enjoy :D
