    Ghostbusters II

    ★½

    I think I've finally cracked why this is such an inferior sequel.

    The score is dreadful. It's not the same composer from the original.
    Ditto for the cinematography which is also not up to scratch.

It's what makes it weird at the end with them being given the key to the city. It's not like the killed a rampaging marshmallow man - they just made some slime come off a building.

    This must be the 5th time I've watched [REC] - this time on bluray after picking it up today.

    [REC] has lost nothing. It remains the single best found footage horror film ever. The acting throughout is fantastic and some of the lengthy one-take shots are meticulously executed.

    I love [REC] because it just continues to escalate throughout. It starts off documentary, building characters and themes then moves into panic, then bloody horror, then terror, then end. Once it gets…
