• About

Paranormal researcher Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy) and physicist Erin Gilbert are trying to prove that ghosts exist in modern society. When strange apparitions appear in Manhattan, Gilbert and Yates turn to engineer Jillian Holtzmann for help. Also joining the team is Patty Tolan, a lifelong New Yorker who knows the city inside and out. Armed with proton packs and plenty of attitude, the four women prepare for an epic battle as more than 1,000 mischievous ghouls descend on Times Square.

Abby (Melissa McCarthy) and Erin (Kristen Wiig) see the Gertrude the Ghost (Bess Rous) of Aldridge Mansion in Columbia Pictures' GHOSTBUSTERS.

• Pass/Fail

Pass: EVERYTHING! It had old cast doing cameos, a brilliant new cast, a creepy, funny entertaining storyline.. full of wit and geeky movie quotes.. I loved it all!

Fail: I honestly don’t think there is one.. I thought Bill Murray was his original character so that was a bit confusing.. but you soon figure it out!

• Standout Performance

So hard to choose.. All the main characters were fantastic! Especially Chris Hemsworth.. Too funny! How did they not all burst out laughing constantly!?


• Who Will Like This?

Ghostbuster movie geek lovers.. it honestly lives up to the original classic.. I had low expectations but was so blown away by it! First time this has been done I think.. a remake of a classic! I wanted to see it again straight away! Anyone wanna go??

• See It Now or Wait?

Defo see it now in the cinema!! 3D too!

• Highlight

OH MAN.. there are too many.. I loved the part where they moved into the new office and Jill was dancing (blonde one) that bit was too funny.. along with any Chris Hemsworth part and the bit where Abby is explaining to the cops it isn’t like the movie Ghost. I also loved the part where Jill invented new Ghostbusting gadgets and got to use them..


• Overall Impression

A fantastic remake of a wonderful classic.. it lives up to its 80’s sibling.. a new modern take with girl power! Funny, constant laughs and geeky film quotes, cameos of original cast members, creepy scenes and amazing Cgi all make this film absolutely fantastic.. it will make you happy inside and leave with a huge smile on your face! You must go see this.. I think its my fav film this year so far! :O

Ghostbusters Marshmallow Man Is Causing Chaos In London Waterloo


But, that’s not all. The London Underground map has also had a Ghostbusters themed redesign:


Which, despite looking awesome, looks like it might actually make the underground even harder to understand for tourists. Uh oh.
