Screen Junkies' latest "Honest Trailer" takes aim at the 1989 "Ghostbusters" sequel.

With all the misguided complaining about the new Ghostbusters retroactively ruining childhoods, it's easy to forget that the franchise wasn't exactly flawless before Paul Feig got a hold of it. 

For those looking back on the 1989 sequel Ghostbusters 2 through nostalgia-tinged glasses (they're a popular fashion trend these days), the Screen Junkies are here to remind you that "Ghostbusters 2: The Secret of the Ooze" was actually sort of terrible. The YouTube channel takes aim at the sequel in the latest installment of the super-popular Honest Trailers series, pointing out that it's exactly the same as the original movie, just worse. 

The Ghostbusters reboot is out in theaters on Friday. Times critic Steve Persall says it won't ruin your childhood.
