Honestly, it isn’t that stunning to listen to Reitman say that “Ghostbusters II” is canon, since his personal father, Ivan Reitman, directed it. Both Reitmans had been available in New York just lately for the dedication of the Ivan Reitman Cinema, the alternate title of Alamo Drafthouse’s new Lower Manhattan location.

Paul Feig directed “Answer the Call,” however in any other case, the “Ghostbusters” sequence is a household affair, with Ivan Reitman directing the primary two movies and his son, Jason, the director of “Juno” and “Up within the Air,” taking the reins of “Afterlife.”

Reviews of “Afterlife” have been mixed-to-positive, about on par with those “Answer the Call” obtained half a decade in the past. There was no scarcity of controversy surrounding that film and its women-led solid, however not less than it was attempting one thing new. With “Afterlife,” the most typical criticism going round appears to be that it leans too exhausting on nostalgia for the unique in a method that some discover pandering and others endearing.

You can see it this weekend, full with Muncher and mini Stay-Puft marshmallow males, and decide for your self. “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” stars Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Logan Kim, Carrie Coon, and Paul Rudd, with appearances by returning solid members Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts. The movie is in theaters now.
