166: Ghostbusters

Published 20 July 2016 Hosted by Katie Molloy and Melissa Savage

The Ghostbusters reboot we have been waiting for is here! SSQ fave Melissa McCarthy joins Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and breakout star Kate McKinnon in Paul Feig’s take on the classic franchise and it (oh thank goodness!) does not disappoint. Ghostbusters ever-so-gently resets the formula for summer blockbusters with humour, panache and fabulous outfits. In a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts, charm, laughs and a cast having the time of their lives (we see you trying not to crack up, Chris Hemsworth) ensure a fabulous cinematic experience, even as some storytelling snafus distract from the finale’s emotional weight.
