In fact, I like Ghostbusters 2 to Ghostbusters. I understand. I mean, what am I smoking? Ghostbusters 2 is a film that almost no one enjoys. Certainly not Bill Murray! However, because Ghostbusters 2 was my first Ghostbusters film, it retains a particular place in my heart. It was the first film in which I saw Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, Sigourney Weaver, and Harold Ramis, thus it holds a certain amount of nostalgia for me.
Ghostbusters 2 Is Much Better Than You Remember It For 5 Reasons
You’re considering, “That is, after all, the only reason you enjoy it so much. It was the first time for you.” That certainly contributes to my enthusiasm for the film, but there are a few things in the divisive sequel that aren’t there in the original. I’m not trying to persuade you that Ghostbusters 2 is superior to Ghostbusters since I know I’ll lose. But, if you’re in the “Hated it” camp, I’m suggesting that the picture may be a little better than you recall. Even if you didn’t enjoy Ghostbusters 2, we can all agree that Bobby Brown’s track “On Our Own” is still a hit. We can only hope that Ghostbusters Afterlife can restore faith in the franchise, given how some people felt about the 2016 Ghostbusters, which may be even more divisive than Ghostbusters 2.
The Characters’ Stakes Are Raised In The Sequel
What I appreciate about Ghostbusters 2 is that it is closely tied to the first film, something I didn’t realize when I first saw it because I saw it before the first. A sequel, after all, should be, right? However, this isn’t always the case. Evil Dead II is more of an attempt to shift the tone of the first picture, functioning as a type of reboot, than a direct sequel, and many people haven’t even seen the first Terminator film and are happy with it. However, Ghostbusters 2 is about the team being sued after the events of the first film because the city holds them responsible for the destruction. This puts their lives in jeopardy and causes them to become estranged. Ray and Winston are now performing at children’s birthday parties, so you know they’ll have to reclaim their former glory. Egon is experimenting with emotions (which I’ll get to later), and Peter has advanced to the point where he is now hosting a talk show. When Peter’s ex-wife, Dana, has a son with her ex-husband and the baby is in danger, he goes through a lot of mental turmoil since he still cares about her and wants to help. Louis, for example, is now the Ghostbusters’ accountant. The characters have developed in every manner, both as individuals and as a group, which means the stakes have been heightened because they must once again become a team, which gets me to my next point. Coming back together as a team gives one a nice, warm feeling in the heart. So, because the crew is no longer in business after the first film, they’ve all disbanded and split off. I explained where each hero went, but let’s talk about the slimy river once more, and how the team reunites. I think the second film does a fantastic job of rekindling the team’s enthusiasm for ghost hunting, and it all comes down to that river. Oscar, Dana’s kid, is in a stroller that ends up at an abandoned railroad station, and Ray damages a pipe while investigating, leading to the team’s arrest. The courtroom sequence with the Scoleri Brothers, which I believe may even match the library scene from the first film, is then one of my favorite moments in the entire series. The ghosts present themselves as a result of the slime and the judge’s bad vibes, and what follows is the crew reuniting and a cool montage of the fellas back in business, which always gives me a pleasant feeling after they were separated earlier in the film. Man, I’m a huge fan of this film!
Vigo Is An Intimidating And Cool Villain
When most people think of Ghostbusters antagonists, they automatically think of The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, which is OK. Stay Puft is one of my favorite bands. I particularly admire Gozer’s gender fluidity in the first film. When it comes to Ghostbusters villains, though, the Scourge of Carpathia, the Sorrow of Moldavia, Vigo will always be my fave. Vigo emerges from a museum painting, sounding like a lost Twilight Zone episode, and he is quite terrifying and intimidating. Even more so than Zuul and Gozer did in the first film. Granted, the ‘Busters easily defeated Vigo, but the build-up to the final battle is incredible. I used to have dreams about him as a kid, and I still think he’s quite cool.
