Wow I am so happy that this show is back! Finally created an account to join in the discussion. This was a great discussion and I agreed with the points made both by Paul and Amy. I agree that the legacy and the franchise might be making this film better than it is, but I think there is a reason for everything that came after it. This is a special film that is so specific to the 80s that there is no way a film like this can be made in the same way today. I think the remake (while I enjoyed some parts) is proof of that. The decision for me came down to Paul comparing this to other comedies in the 80s and this being the definitive one. It is a YES to Ghostbusters for me.
