You could cast anyone else in any other part, Hugo Weaving as Ming would make it good.


And no real reason to re-cast Prince Vultan. BRIAN BLESSED would still work just fine in the role.

The only movie that should ever be in 3D is Nature Trail to Hell.

Gremlins sucked.

Gremlins 2 at least understood it was absured and went full bore into "fark IT, WERE DOING THIS shiat AND IF NO ONE ELSE LAUGHS WE WILL" mode.

Also Gremlins had this: Besides, Gremlins 2 had this. And it was awesome.

Just don't touch Gremlins 2, other than to make a beautiful blu-ray edition. Far, far better than the original. And most other movies.

It's actually funnier now that Donald Trump has gone insane. At the time, the parody of him in the movie seemed a little over the top because he seemingly couldn't possibly be that bad in real life. Now we know it was pretty much spot on.

I see the anti CGI butt hurt brigade is out in full force.

The only way to have Yoda to have a light saber battle is through CGI. Puppetry is just too limited.

born_yesterday: BigLuca: movieman_1979: It's not that difficult. Use puppets, with as little CGI as possible (erase the wires, etc..). Bring back Spielberg to produce and Joe Dante directing. It really isn't that difficult.

Using puppets would increase the cost by almost 6% and make it nearly impossible for the asian Gremlin to use Kung-fu. And you can forget about "bullet-time" fighting.

And in the remake--Gizmo can talk! And boy, does he have some HILARIOUS one-liners!


I'm sure Howie Mandel would love work that doesn't involve having to touch people again.

This past Christmas Eve, my wife and I had a great time watching Die Hard and Gremlins back to back. True holiday classics.

Fun trivia fact: the deputy in Gremlins is Mike from Breaking Bad.

Why are we wasting time remaking a movie that does not need remaking!

Black Swan on the other hand... that's due for a remake. In fact, it should be remade every year with two different actresses. I'm thinking Anne Hathaway and Rachel Bilson. Also are there any plans to remake whild things yet?

And Stripe isn't an evil gremlin created from water spilled on Gizmo, he's actually Gizmo's misunderstood brother who kept being ignored while Gizmo got all of the love and attention.

Things I learned from Gremlins.

Never and I mean never in a pitch black room cackle like a Gremlin, go "Yum, yum, yum, yum!" and begin to give your girl friend oral sex, the silly biatch will kick you in the head.

Oh for the love of god.

Like the recent Paul Verhoeven remakes, the Gremlins reboot will likely not realize how tongue-in-cheek the Joe Dante directed movies were, which is what made them work (and Gremlins 2 remains way too meta for most people to get).

Flappyhead: Remember CGI Yoda? Yeah.


"I really liked Frank Oz and puppet Yoda; it was masterful how he turned a puppet into an primary character, whose monologs and mannerisms are as iconic as any human. I just wish he had looked a lot faker--shinier, if you will--and that we'd gotten a chance to see him flip around with his "little laser sword"."
