Gremlins ★★★★

Both heartwarmingly cute and devilishly dark, Gremlins hits the sweet spot for a fun creature feature.

Fantastic puppetry, animatronics and creature design propel this film above others like it. It's a Christmas film that doesn't center on the time of year, making it a good watch at any time.

It's charming the entire way through and makes up for it's lack of interesting characters by having a consistently fun mood. It's worth a watch for the chair lift scene alone (which made me laugh way harder than I should) as well as for the surprisingly brutal cartoon violence.
