Gremlins (1984) Film Review.Amblin Entertainment. Distributed by Warner Bros Pictures. Directed by Joe Dante.Certificate 15 UK, Running time 106 minutes.
Another masterpiece of film making by The Howling's Joe Dante,produced by Steven Spielberg. Wrongly marketed as a Kids film,when even now in the UK it still has a 15 certificate. A simple story about a father wanting to give the perfect gift for his son for Christmas. He comes across a strange antique shop in Chinatown,and sees this strange creature,which he has to have. But comes with 3 very easy rules, to never get it wet,do not come into contact with direct sunlight,and never ever,no matter how much it begs,cries,feed after midnight. Three simple rules,that the young Billy tried to obey,but unfortunately doesn't and it comes with dire consequences,as the cute fluffy thing, Billy has adopted produces some very little nasty monster offspring. Yes this film is an eighties classic,and even now does not look dated,with the current use of CGI, the puppets, and puppetry is second to none in this film. With the Gremlins absolutely terrifying with complete,murder,mischief and psychotic tendencies,to kill or maim any Human. It has a very dark edge to the humour also,with old ladies being thrown out hundreds of feet in the air by a souped up chairlift,people being run over by heavy machinery,killed with knives or even guns. With the best character created ever the wonderfully scary Stripe,a sadistic Creature,with evil in mind. And to compensate for the evilness of Stripe we have his polar opposite Gizmo,the cutest creature to ever grace our screens,that is so cute and gorgeous,but can produce such horrible offspring,that can actually wipe out a small town. A wonderful film,violent in places,but also very funny,but even now I think I could not show to my Daughter yet as it is quite scary.
I came across this trailer on YouTube yesterday, and it is doing the rounds again on social media, a trailer first showing in 2015, that got everyone talking " is this for real" " this can not be a film can it?" As it turns out no, it is a trailer that is well made, but certainly is not going to be a film anytime soon.
A one joke trailer about a randy ghost intent on jerking men off, using handjobs, I'm surprised the tag line wasn't "Cumming soon".
This was obviously made by men with a running narrative that women cannot give a decent handjob, and having them do the deed is worse than death, instead you have a ghost who wants to jerk all men to death.
It is as awful as you'd expect it to be, but I still found myself chuckle a few times, it is rude, crude, insinuating, and in fairness harmless fun, a film if made I would actually probably watch, it certainly looks better than the recent Cabin Fever, Evil Dead 2013.
Out of all fan theories this one I heard the other day makes complete sense, it is about the movie by M Night Shyamalan Signs. The movie that is equally loved and hated at the same time, but with this recent fan theory makes more sense. The Theory is this.... The Alien's are actually Demons, it seems completely "out there" but when you actually break it down it makes complete sense, and actually improves the movie tenfold instead of an Alien Invasion it is actually a Demon led apocalypse. 1. The beings are never referred to as Alien's, we as a viewer just assume that to be the case. 2. The film is about Faith and loosing it, we see Mel Gibson's character grieving for his lost wife who died in a car accident, leaving him a lonely parent, no matter how much he believed in God and prayed for his wife, she still died. 3. The beings have Hooved feet like a devil, which has been the image for demons and the Devil since forever. 4. Mel Gibson's daughter in this is a cel…
Tree is about to have a very bad day, again, and again and again.
College Grad Tree, a self centred bitch, who you take an instant dislike to, who is foul to everyone.
Treats everyone like dirt, then wonders why someone would want her dead. With a groundhog Day loop thing going on every time she is murdered she has to live through the same Monday the 18th, until she can find out her wants her dead, solve her own murder, and maybe become a better person in the mean time.
The thing is I really wanted to hate this movie, but I couldn't, because of the performance from Jessica Rothe as Tree, in her first scream queen role, starring previously in La La Land, and Netflix's Parallels.
She is so likeable and believable in the role, although playing the bitch perfectly, she is deep down a damaged soul, still mourning the death of her mother, and her grief is her anger towards fellow People.
With some inventive kills, and no matter what Tree does, the day always ends in her death, with…
