Aha, thought I was missing something 😂.. good to hear it’s a decent watch, you never know with these sequels (see later Die Hard films).
I take a lot of them with a pinch of salt like the Fast and Furious franchise. I watch it just because it’s a bit of fun.

The new bad boys was really enjoyable though a good blend of humour and violence.

Given the number of films you've watched and reported on here, then add on the number of books you've read and TV programmes you've recommended and music you've listened to right now, when do you find time to sleep or work @Tangled up in Blue? Ooops, forgot the Grauniad quotes as well. :Winking:

Saw Terence Davies's British masterpiece (1988) Distant Voices,Small Lives again last night.Always reminds me of student sing songs in the back room of a small Irish pub in Mosely back in the early 70's.

Finally watched “Hidden Figures “ last nights (terrestrial TV repeated every couple of days it seems)
Very good , very much enjoyed it. Make sure you watch the credits at the end.
Very uplifting, so especially relevant at the moment. Easy 8/10 , possibly higher

Introduced by kid to Ghostbusters and was surprised (despite it being a PG) how sweary & sexual it is. Bill Murray comes across as a letchy sexual predator, the acting is wooden (apart from the glorious Sigourney Weaver) but MK Jnr enjoyed it. There aren't that many busted ghosts either to be frank.

It's most definitely a film of it's time. Don't think we'll be bothering with 2.

Ghostbusters 2 is better than 1 in my opinion - a proper script, funnier scenes, and the most feelgood ending of any film.

First Ghostbusters definitely stands the test of time and is by far the best one. Hugely successful at the box office whereas the others largely bombed.
Why do so many 80s films have scenes that make you cringe when watching with kids?

I am thinking of the bit where invisible hands unzip ray Stantz...
