Gruesomely sentimental.

January 6, 2022 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

[It] relaunches the franchise with a mostly funny and solid offering. Hearkening to the great movies of the 80s, this film follows a group of very capable and hilarious kids who save the world from destruction.

Haunting, but not in the good way.

November 22, 2021 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It has its moments... but they don't make up for a general flat-footedness and tendency to wobble.

November 22, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The film's main appeal is not what it appropriates from other Ghostbusters pictures, but that it's a nostalgic nod to the Spielbergian family adventures of the same period.

November 21, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Jason Reitman's Ghostbusters: Afterlife is what one gets when a franchise finally throws in the towel and gives its fans exactly what they've been waiting for all along.
