Ghostbusters was harmless, fan-servicy fun....and I had no problem with it. 

Wasn't the greatest, wasn't the worst. Had some laughs, the ending pretty much worked for me too. 

Way better than the 2016 version, and I'm glad it didn't take itself too seriously. 

I enjoyed it

Really liked the Harold stuff at the end.

I did too, it worked for me. I could see people thinking it was too corny or over the top, but it worked for me.

There were 100% issues with the movie. It seemed to totally shift tones once they hit the Walmart, it went from a "simple" movie to feeling like a big budget blockbuster way too quickly, but again, for me it was a movie that didn't try to take itself too seriously and kind of felt like a love letter to the diehards, which I appreciate.

I enjoyed the kids and would be down for them taking the mantle.  The girl is a perfect Egon

Movies recently watched

 

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings   3.5/4

Eternals  1.5/4

Power of the Dog 3.25/4.0 (although most reviewers are giving it 3.5 after a second watch, for quite obvious reasons if you have watched it)

West Side Story  3.5/4.0

Dune  3.25/4.0

Tick, Tick...Boom!!!  3.5/4.0 (highly-recommended if you like musicals or Andrew Garfield)

 

Licorice Pizza...  3.5/4.0  mix Once Upon a Time in Hollywood's feel with a coming of age romance (25 year old woman with 15 year old "boy")  

Really liked this one a lot...especially the fact that the two leads are pretty much unknowns.

 

Others on the viewing list include some more GG nominees, like King Richard (Will Smith meets Richard Williams of Williams tennis playing sisters renown and aces the role, supposedly), Belfast, Being the Ricardos, A Hero (amazing Iranian director, also did A Separation)

I was in a bit of an emotional mood, but I really liked “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” with Tom Hanks. I’m a big fan of his and the role he plays in many movies.

There’s an episode of Star Trek The Next Generation called Shades of Grey. Riker gets his brain infected by things and must relive bad memories to kill them. It is generally agreed to be one of the worst 2 episodes of TNG.

This description is exceedingly relevant to the Matrix: Resurrection.

Free Guy was quite watchable, but those who hate Ryan Reynolds (or think a little of him goes a LONG way) might not find it to their liking.

Just finished watching it with my wife...it was much more entertaining than we were expecting.  Fun movie but we do like Ryan Reynolds.  As you suggested, if you don't like him you probably want to pass on it.
