After facing a surprisingly hostile campaign from fans of the 1984 original, the new GHOSTBUSTERS has finally made it to theaters. But have Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and company made a film that can put that hostilty to rest? Adam and Josh review the Paul Feig-directed GHOSTBUSTERS reboot. Plus, Adam interviews James Solomon, the director of THE WITNESS, a new documentary about an infamous, decades-old murder case, and the Contemporary Nordic Cinema Marathon returns with a review of Susanne Bier's IN A BETTER WORLD.
