||Ghostbusters I and II
||Malevolent spirits are invading Manhattan again but fortunately another group of paranormal scientists are on hand to combat them. However the mayor wants to pretend that they are just a bunch of hoaxers, making life difficult, and no crisis is so bad it can’t get worse!
||Actually some quite frightening moments, plus a lot of sharp dialogue and some jokes pointing up the fact that the Ghostbusters are female. As the film progresses an increasingly bewildering content of the set pieces.
||Mostly an enjoyable romp, although for me the plot drifts away from its own rules for the benefit of spectacle. However there is considerable benefit from the 2016 CGI. Watch for the terrific scene in the pop concert.
