Spoilers below. Obviously.

Hey, friends! We’ve got a full review of Ghostbusters coming out very soon from our very own Marcy Cook. While you should definitely keep your eyes out for that, we also wanted to put up a fun open thread for you folks who got to check out the movie last night.

Personally speaking, I enjoyed the movie. It did a good job of establishing itself as a brand new movie while still paying respects to the ones who came before. There were plenty of really great memorable jokes, and Chris Hemsworth’s performance as Kevin was certainly a surprise. The standout performance for me amongst the Ghostbusters crew themselves was Kate McKinnon’s Jillian Holtzmann. I believe she may have stolen the show—for me, at least.

So. What did you think? Did you spot the “Redditor villain” subtext? Which Ghostbuster is your favorite? (Mine’s Holtzmann. Easily. Hands down. She’s wonderful.) What’d you think of the effects and the ghosts?

Kick back and chat with for a bit, why don’t ya?
