Gremlins ★★★½

"But the most important rule, the rule you can never forget, no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs, never feed him after midnight."

I probably would have loved this a lot more if I'd seen it as a kid but alas I never grew up with any cult films in my childhood except for the lion king (thanks mom at least u got that one right) and so after seeing this at age 20 I find it very entertaining but it doesn't cause me that highly nostalgic feel that others probably experience with it. however, it certainly has those 80's vibes to it and the story is so much fun you can't but root for the characters and awe at the cute gremlins. till the little shits turn into monsters and fuck up the whole city that is. obviously it was the stupid white male once again who messes up and causes the cute fur babies to transform. I also laughed tears at the scene with the old lady and the staircase chair elevator thing hahaha.
