    Extremely cheesy and campy! Just the way I like them! A perfect example of a cheesy movie from the 80's. 6 years 2 months ago

    Hadn't seen Gremlins in years if not decades, and what struck me this time around was how many movie references are peppered throughout. Why did I never notice the classic Wellsian time machine in the background before? A fun genre breaker, especially at the time it came out, though it has several gaping plot holes like villains who disappear mid-film to make way for the hundreds of evil puppets, but you hardly notice while you're in the experience. It's just too much crazy fun. My kind of holiday fare. 3 years 8 months ago
