Ghostbusters (2016) stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig,Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat.)
"...Paul Feig’s film includes multiple nods to Reitman’s original, in establishing the origins of New York City’s ragtag paranormal clean-up crew, but they exist in a world that appears to have no collective memory of any 1984 showdown atop the Shandor Building between the original Ghostbusters and Gozer the Gozerian (nor does it recall their return in 1989 to face off against a sentient painting and his subterranean River of Mood Slime - but then, Ghostbusters II was pretty forgettable)."
"...For those who loved the original, there will be plenty in this reboot for them as well, including cameos galore and plenty of call-backs. Fans of the original will also appreciate that this film managed to balance the line between the big laughs, the subtle giggles and downright creepiness. And it kicks some serious arse. Vindicated."
"...Writer/director Paul Feig (Spy), co-scribe Katie Dippold (TV's Parks and Recreation) and the cast of talented comedians know that viewers are acquainted with the 1984 version and its 1989 sequel, acknowledge their forebears gleefully and approach their addition to the fold as a smiling celebration for the twenty-first century. ..."
