TOPIC: GHOSTBUSTERS (2016)
In our very first episode we talked about the first trailer for this film, at length, and reasoned why it was such a bad preview. The film is much better than you would expect from that misguided marketing material.
During our debrief we cover the film’s tone and humour, its odd pace, the sci-fi/paranormal elements, cameos, Holtzmann, the missing dance sequence and the importance of the film whether you liked it or not.
