Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire

March-April 2024, PG-12, 1h 55min

SPOILER-FREE! The recent weather development in and around Helsinki delivered some extra promotion for this movie… but no ice, frost or snowstorm could keep me from watching this Ghostbuster adventure (and I don’t care about critics and “fans” who complain about everything anyway). I had enjoyed the first re-boot of this legendary franchise and in the sequel, the Spengler family returns to where it all started – the iconic New York City firehouse.

The plot:
When the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age.

And that’s all I’ll say about it. Fans from “back then” surely enjoy the reunion – the original cast, slimy beings like this fat cutiepie and William Atherton as the mayor, and of course the well-known locations like the firehouse. Which means 2h of nice entertainment and I could not find much to complain about. Well, Carrie Coon and Paul Rudd behave maybe too much like an old married couple – if you know what I mean… I would have preferred some more color and dimension for their characters. But that’s about it – I find the young & old Ghostbusters simply adorable and this is a movie you have to watch on a big screen!

reckless and merciless dictator, so KNEEL! In other words, editor-in-chief, translator, website and ad admin, "Jane of all trades" - - - addicted to books (everything between Lord Of The Rings & quantum physics) and music, mainly Metal made in Finland. Furthermore, there's painting, drawing, movies, theater... so you can expect some variety on this website too. MA Master of Arts, English and American studies & Media communication = completed two full studies parallel within 5 years; very proud of my achievement - a bit later in life thanks to a scholarship - as a working class girl in a highlyconservative-romancatholic nation...
