Post 25th anniversary of "Ghostbusters II" - June 16
So about a week after we get the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters we now get the 25th anniversary of Ghostbusters II. So how has the film held up for you after 25 years?

I don't see it as the full-fledged disaster a lot of people do. In terms of unnecessary sequels, Men In Black II was worse.

On the whole, it was pretty mediocre. Entertaining sure. But doesn't transcend like the original did. I'd give it **1/2 whereas the original gets **** hands down.

Both films were pretty enjoyable, dosen't match up to the first but has some standout moments.

Ghostbusters 2 was one of the first movies I saw at the cinema.

And yeah, I thought, and still think, it's pretty good.

Ghostbusters 2 was my first film seen in a theater. I loved it. Almost as much as the first one. Not quite, but close.

Kurt Fuller is always playing an a**hole. Probably because he does it well.
