Surprisingly heartfelt with personal stories.
15 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

I knew this movie was like a Ghostbusters version of 'Heart of an Empire', but I wasn't expecting to get right-in-the-feels. As a casual fan of the franchise (and a huge Star Wars fan) it's interesting to look into a different fandom window. What makes Ghostbuster fans unique is that they put their *own* names on their uniforms, chew on that for a bit. Packed with cast and crew interviews, the weaving of the stories is handled very well. Great doc! You can keep reading this or you can just check it out for yourself on Netflix. Go on. Go see it.
