Dog’s Movie House: “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire Delightful Continuation Of Original Film!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here and I must acknowledge the fact that 1984’s classic “Ghostbusters” captured lightening in a bottle with it’s combination of scares and big-time (mostly adult) laughs. It was also a product of the 1980s, when you could go a lot farther with a PG rating. The subsequent sequels couldn’t capture that same lightening (“Ghostbusters 2” with all of the original players, both in front and behind the camera, could only produce a pale copy of the first film, and the female-led 2016 film couldn’t quite get the chemistry right despite a game cast.) The two legacy sequels that have come in the last couple of years have taken a different tack: They lean into the nostalgia of the first film without aping it’s style. The technique is quite clever as you feel like you’re watching a “Ghostbusters” movie without ever thinking you’re watching a cash-grab copy!
