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.
I really had high expectations for this movie especially as it covers something that affects me and millions of others that is extreme nightmares and sleep paralysis, a condition where your brain thinks your awake yet you are still dreaming, yet you cannot move your body, and you feel like something else is in the room with you.
Plot summary, the Morgan's who are already suffering from grief, after losing a child to cot death, and their oldest son Daniel (Lucas Bond) is suffering night terrors, and a nightmare of something trying to suck the life out of him. They go to a Sleep expert Alice Arnolds (Maggie Q) who's own life suffered a tradegy when her brother died as a young child in a sleepwalking accident. These are resurfaced again after coming in contact with the boys family, who she is trying to help, with nightmares of her younger brother tormenting her once more. With her visions and nightmares getting progressively worse, and the boys life is in serious danger as these…
A rarity that a sequel surpasses the original, but to actually better it, and out smart it, is an amazing feat. I cannot put into words how good this movie is. A film that Ryan Reynolds was born to play, a natural comedian, the one liners, the piss taking of Marvel and DC, the whole X Men theme is ripped apart again, with Wade whizzing around the School for gifted, in Professor Xavier's chair saying it smells like Patrick Stuart. The action set pieces are bigger and better, the car, moped chase scene is worth the admission price alone. A film that was so naturally funny these days are a rarity alone, it is without doubt easily one of the funniest scripts ever. With spot on casting from the inclusion of Josh Brolin as Cable, cameos from Bill Skarsgård, to Terry Crews, Rob Delany as Peter. With outstanding performances from Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Hunt From The Wildness actor Julian Dennison as Firefist. This film is as close to perfection as any movie I'll ever go and see. …
