Meat and Potatoes

This week we have “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” a sequel that is over 3 decades in the making. Picking up the reigns on the Ghostbusters franchise this time is Jason Reitman, son of Ivan Reitman the original director of the franchise. Jason promised years ago to get back to the basics and make a “Ghostbusters” sequel that will please the Fans, unlike all its other sequels and reboots they made so far…Hopefully.

*The MEAT* What a very *Cool Story* they came up with. Proper nods to the original story and characters while introducing a new world. Of course, you get the comedy with ghosts and action, but I was surprised at the overall heartwarming feeling that comes through in this movie.

*The POTATOES* Mckenna Grace plays the granddaughter of Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) and is *Simply Marvelous* here. What can I say about Paul Rudd, other than he is great at playing Paul Rudd again. Fortunately, this role is perfect for a Paul Rudd character.

*The VERDICT* A lot of thought and care went into “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” and it shows. It’s more than a sequel or continuation, it’s like a *Proper Conclusion* to a story that we didn’t know we needed, but much appreciates that it did. “Afterlife” reminded me of the series “Cobra Kai” in that the way it makes fun of the past while paying a tribute to it at the same time, by letting you see it through today’s glasses, it will also remind us of what we probably forgotten. Not easy to do but it’s done beautifully here. So, I know a certain Smurf will be happy to hear that I do recommend this movie for the theaters It’s for everyone especially Ghostbusters fans. The crowd actually clapped at the end, which always enhances any movie experience.

Everyone, Please Stay Safe…

Stay Healthy…

And as always… Stay Geeky!

And hope you had a Fantastic Thanksgiving!!!
