Dollar Reviews 025: Ghostbusters (2016)

Despite telling ourselves, and each other, that we wouldn’t see Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, we caught the she-make anyway. Also, Steve saw 1988’s Uninvited (34:28), I trounced around Goodwill and started The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (39:50), terrified myself with Scare PewDiePie (41:36), and listened to the new Avalanches (43:40) and Blood Orange (46:05) albums. Finally Steve caught Tickled (47:32) which leads into a great conversation about documentary filmmaking.
