For those of you contemplating taking your kids to the movies to, like responsible parents, impart your cinematic wisdom and show them the marvels of the eighties films, here is this “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire”, providing a unique opportunity.

It may not be your children’s life-changing movie, but they certainly won’t stop talking about it.

A self-writing plot: family life and a new generation of ghostbusters (which already appeared in the first of this new series of movies), teaching us a bit of the same old thing: that nothing really changes in life.

“Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” achieves its goals: blending modern and retro in a film created for nostalgia, with many familiar faces, some delightful ghosts that will make us smile, and Dan Aykroyd, who is excellent and, once again, the good old Bill Murray making his star appearance.

Warning: scarier than its predecessors, but with the same spirit of repeating a successful movie, which made sense but today, it’s just a memory.

Which isn’t so bad, really.

In its technical aspects, a good movie that doesn’t aim to revolutionize CGI: even with the most modern technology, the film is bound to somewhat eighties effects with beams and the like and, despite meeting all expectations, doesn’t stand out for its aesthetic originality or innovation.

A film born for reminiscence, not for groundbreaking change, and to serve as a good reunion with old friends who, deep down, have nothing new to share except to recall past battles.

Enjoy it.
