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.

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"."

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.


I just read your comment, after which I punched a blind child and called to cancel my monthly gift to the ASPCA. I hope you're happy.

You know what I never understood about Gremlins? How they could beat the Imperial Stormtroopers with only rocks and sticks. I mean, the Stormtroopers had armor and blaster rifles, but Spielberg had to go and make his analogy to the Jewish soldiers in Vietnam again, and it totally ruined any credibility. Yeah, it just HAPPENED to take place during Christmas. One of the Gremlins just HAPPENS to get nuked to death. Don't feed them, don't get them wet, don't let them see sunlight. The Gremlins were SLAVES my friends. Wake up and smell the oppression!!!

"A remake of "Gremlins"? Sounds like a marvelous idea! We'll need a bit more funding, though. It's been awfully brutal, here. We had to put everything we have into canned food and shotguns."

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.

kbronsito: 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.
