    A good film but NOT AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL

    I’ve always liked the film. Saw it in the theater. The cast is still perfect in their roles. Good film BUT NOT CLOSE TO THE ORIGINAL. The story was lacking Dana got married & divorce between films & has Oscar. So, The spark between her & Peter was lost. Bill you can NOT beat his performance in both films as Venkman. The DVD package. Lack of anything special. NO EXTRAS EXCEPT 2 EPISODES OF THE ANIMATED SHOW. CHEAP. REAL CHEAP. They did NOT even add a trailer or anything else. No video for the Bobby Brown song. Nothing. Next time we release the film on DVD LET'S DO A BETTER JOB. YOU GUYS DID NOT EVEN TRY.

    Solid Sequel

    What can be said about this movie that has not already been said. This sequel is not as good as the original classic but is still a fun movie. . The script by Dan Aykroyd and the late great Harold Ramis is a little too familiar at times and the direction by Ivan Reitmanis still solid. The cast is still great and the chemistry is still there. The 4K restoration is amazing and as good as the first film.

    Actually, BETTER than I Remembered

    Ghostbusters II is almost universally regarded as a disappointment when placed side-by-side with its esteemed predecessor and, as such, is always approached with lowered expectations when viewed today. With that attitude in mind, however, the movie ends up exceeding those 'lowered' expectations and is quite amusing in a looser, less structured manner than the first film.

    Great in 4K

    You know, some companies do a better job at 4K than others; Columbia Pictures (Sony) has the best adaptations of their films to 4K than any other company. For being 30 years old, this movie looks amazing! This is a classic and needs to be seen and shown to the younger generation proving to them that humor does not need to be vulgar to be laugh out loud funny.

    Great looking steelbook

    There's no point reviewing the movie because it's not a new Blu-ray, so I'll just talk about the steelbook. The steelbook is beautiful; however, I had to drop a star because it is super glossy and slippery so, if you stack your cases, there's a chance they can tumble down like Jenga pieces, so, just keep that in mind; other than that, this steelbook is beautiful.

    When I was a kid this was one of my favorite movies ever!! I actually thought the original was too scary. As I got older, that kind of flopped - I'm more of a Ghostbusters 1 fan now. If you look at the two movies narritive structures, they're basically the same movie - this one is just more family friendly. But man, that Steelbook is sweet looking!!

    I picked this up with the first movie and was not disappointed by the release or the art. My only criticism is the lack of extra content. There are some extra scenes, music video, etc, but that is about it. Given that it was the follow up to one of the best movies in the 80s, I was surprised there was not more extra content available.

    A four star transfer of a 3 star movie.

    Ghostbusters II is an entertaining movie even though it falls short of the original. This 4K version looks better than the movie ever has before but there is a pretty noticeable layer of grain present. If you enjoy this movie enough to own it, this is the version you should purchase.

    More for nostalgia than anything else

    While this is nowhere near as great as the first Ghostbusters movie, I do remember watching this quite a bit when I was younger. I watch it more for nostalgic reasons than anything else, but I'm glad it's got a great steelbook case to go next to the original!

    New High Def Transfer Seems a Bit Off

    Posted
    kevman79

    'Ghostbusters 2' is a really good sequel in my opinion. I recommend this movie, but the re-mastered high-def transfer on this new version seems too light to me, and I still prefer the original dvd release. Nonetheless, still highly recommended.

    The saga continues on this one, haven't seen for years but it was quite enjoyable watching this one again. Great artwork on the steel book packaging, this and GB both look amazing on the film transfer to blu ray. Good times!

    It was not as good as the 1st but it is good. I am glad we bought it. The kids and I really enjoyed it. Because the 1st movie was such a hit nothing could really compare, but if you like ghost busting this is a good one.

    Ghostbusters in a collectible steelbook, why wouldn't you buy this? It Comes with a digital copy as well. I am giving this 4 stars because the digital copy in both 1 & 2 only worked for Ghostbusters 2, that was a bummer

    An underrated sequel to the original Ghostbusters film. This movie has a ton of comedy and fun moments that any GB fan will enjoy. The movie looks great in 4K with vibrant colors and deep blacks.

    I remember where I was when I saw the first Ghostbusters, but No 2 was not that memorable. It has a very interesting plot but the premise was a bit predictable. But it has Bill Murry.

    Many people look down on this movie, but there's still a lot of fun to be had here. It's not at the level of the first movie, but it's still an enjoyable performance from Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis.

    Ghostbusters 2

    This [in my opinion] wasn't as good as the original Ghostbusters but it was still a very funny movie in its own right. Would have loved to have a directors commentary included but you can't have everything.

    Well, not nearly as good as the first but still it has the entire original cast from the first film except Ernie Hudson. It still has its moments, but the best part is the steelbook that makes it all ok

    A lot of people did not enjoy the second installment in this beloved franchise but I am in he minority who enjoys it more than the first. Definitely pick this new steel book up along with the original
