I ain’t afraid of no ghosts.

Thirty years ago a team of scientists saved New York City from ghosts and became known as the Ghostbusters. This summer the Ghostbusters are back. Although the roles have changed from male to female, it is still as thrilling and hilarious as the first one. Even though the movie may seem scary because of the ghosts, the characters’ sense of humor really made you forget about the creepy plot. The added appearances of actors from the original cast of “Ghostbusters” are especially creative on the director’s part. This movie is a great family-oriented movie for all to enjoy. Even though many scenes you knew what was about to happen, you still felt the need to jump out of your seat and scream or laugh just like all of the viewers did.

“Ghostbusters” would be great in any way you watch it, but what about 3D? It was the perfect choice for a movie such as “Ghostbusters.” It felt like the action on the screen was so close you could actually catch a ghost or worse — one of them gets you. It felt like you were in the movie with the cast. The animation of the ghosts was spectacular, and they were so lively that you didn’t know what to believe. The special effects were crazy good, and they looked totally realistic. The movie opens July 15. See if you ain’t afraid of no ghosts . . . or are you?
