There's a bunch of hype surrounding GHOSTBUSTERS III right now -- and quite frankly -- it's awesome.  So after a recent re-watch, today's sequel is 1989's GHOSTBUSTERS II!

Five years after the events of the first film, the Ghostbusters have been plagued by lawsuits and court orders, and their once-lucrative business is bankrupt. However, when Dana begins to have ghost problems again, the boys come out of retirement only to be promptly arrested. The Ghostbusters discover that New York is once again headed for supernatural doom, with a river of ectoplasmic slime bubbling beneath the city and an ancient sorcerer attempting to possess Dana's baby and be born anew. Can the Ghostbusters quell the negative emotions feeding the otherworldly threat and stop the world from being slimed?

My thoughts:
There's a lot of love and hate for this movie, and understandably so.  Like GREMLINS/GREMLINS 2, this sequel has a much more family friendly tone and feel to it.  But as a kid, I loved the scene when they animate the Statue of Liberty.  But...she's no Stay Puft!
