    "Shandor Minding Co" has to refer to Ivo Shandor (which Ray and Egon found in Tobin’s Spirit Guide), who was the architect that built Dana's apartment building/the doorway to Gozer in the original. Between that and the giant dog standing on the car could Zuul, the Keymaster and Gozer be returning?

    Really feels like a JJ Abrams movie with how much of it is going to be nothing but "hey guy, remember this thing from 30 years ago that you liked?"

    Paul Rudd doesn’t “get” the best lines. He simply makes his lines the best.

    the fuck outta here calling it "the best of the series."

    The original one is a perfect movie. It cannot be bested. Automatically do I disregard the professionalism of a reviewer who was given a sneak peak and writes that.

    Nope and I have hopes it'll be great. I expect it to be at least good.

    But saying "it's the best in the series" when the first film was one of those very rare, lightning in a bottle sort of movies that can't be replicated, goes beyond hyperbole into the realm of silliness.

    I mean saying it’s better than the original is a ridiculously high bar being set

    Ok nothing can top the OG ghostbusters 1984, but can afterlife be better than GB2 and the 2016 “ghostbusters?”

    I think it can and it will.

    it was fine and had all the pitfalls of 90% of these reboots where the nostalgia pandering was more important than making a good movie

    Correct, I'm very glad Zemeckis never allowed these assholes to remake Back to the Future, soulless blood suckers.
