Now, don’t get me wrong I like Ghostbusters 2. However, it is so hard to live up to the original in most cases with sequels. Especially when it comes to Ghostbusters. That movie was pretty much the pinnacle of comedy and horror. The humor was perfect, the acting was top notch, and all of the characters are memorable. So it’s no shock that Ghostbusters 2 wasn’t as good as the first one. But that doesn’t mean it is a bad film, it is actually a good movie, not the best movie, but good enough.
Moonrise Kingdom is a quintessential Wes Anderson movie. The look and feel of the movie is textbook to his style. Tracking shots and quirky music set the scene for a wonderfully enjoyable film set in 1965. Much like Life Aquatic we are thrown into the imagination of Anderson with his story of two kids who fall in love with each other and go to the end of the island for each other.
