Nowhere near as bad as people might have you believe. Nostalgia’s a funny thing, though.  Seeing a film make a nod to a TV show or film series seems reasonable, but seeing a slightly self-indulgent film making a nod to a single earlier film… maybe that’s not it/why. Not awful, but fine. Although I don’t really know *who* it’s meant to be appealing to – the kid-focused story is obvs for kids to “discover the world of Ghostbusters”, but the fact that the plot relies massively on the appearance of some slack-faced old dudes clearly making 30-year-old callbacks?  Hmm.  Not awful, but not great.
