Josh’s review published on Letterboxd:
Reasons to love Gremlins:
An absolutely demented "kids" movie.
Mischief at its absolute finest.
Perfect blend of horror and comedy.
Amazing Christmas atmosphere.
Phoebe Cates' Santa Claus story!!! One of the most bizarre scenes in a movie I've ever seen, let alone in a movie like this!
Hilarious animatronics/no CGI!
Billy's dad's inventions -especially the smokeless ashtray!
The kitchen sequence - especially the microwave.
All the monster movie in-jokes.
Any time the Gremlins laugh.
Overflowing with nostalgia!
A quintessential 80s movie.
Helped usher in the PG-13 rating.
The disappearing time machine gag.
