Overall, movie was strange. It did have a few suspenseful moments, but overall want that great of a horror film. And I definitely wouldn’t call it a comedy. Based on all the hype it has had I wasn’t that impressed.
Weirdly, it’s one of my favourite Christmas movies!
It was heartwarming, a little scary and outright amusing. It’s one of those films where the bad guys still the show.
Also, is it me or does the girl look a little like adult star Ava Dalush?!
Anyway, what I’m saying is, Gremlins is another classic.
What a blast!
Joe Dante’s “Gremlins” is an absolutely, amazingly fun time. The concept of the Gremlins themselves being so intriguing and fun, and face it, Gizmo is one of the cutest creatures in cinema history. While this movies first 20 minutes are a bit boring, once the story and absolute fun insanity begins you’ll be having such a good time that the run time of the film will completely slip by. I have loved this film since a young age, and sure it may be nostalgia, but god do I really love this movie. I highly recommend watching this on a cold winter night, with hot chocolate, and a warm bowl of popcorn. I guarantee that you will have a fun time with this. It’s not a thought provoking film, it won’t change your life, but it is a fun ride , completely worth it’s length
A perennial Christmas favourite, Joe Dante’s monster movie is a kid’s film for grown ups, made when children’s cinema still had real bite. Watched today, twenty-six years after it was first released, it still holds a great deal of charm for the adult viewer who grew up in the ’80s. As with most of Dante’s movie, a lot of the fun alone comes from the director’s clear affection for the genre, watching for all the gags and references that are surely to come, such as the scene involving the classic Time Machine.
As for the rest of the movie…the depiction of small town and family life is very well realised. There’s a cosy feel to film’s first half. Zach Galligan is a charming hero, and Phoebe Cates the fitting object of his affection. Dick Miller, a genre standby since the ’50s, has a nice role to sink his teeth into, and it’s also great to see Keye Luke in a pivotal role. The supporting characters, particularly Hoyt Axton as the inventor-father, are well drawn. When the gremlins and their brand of anarchy take over, I was less impressed. The film descends into silliness I could have done without, but then picks up for a climax in which Gizmo shows his true colours, so it’s not all bad. I found the sequel, GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH, to be equally fun.
