Gremlins 2: The New Batch Reviews
While it is a different tone it is still faithful to the absolute chaotic nature of it's namesake, i'd argue even more so than the original. While in the first movie its a comedic horror flick that set up an entire Spielberg-esque film for the gremlins to hijack, The New Batch allows them to simply take over the movie itself both literally midway into the movie and figuratively through the monolithic and entirely corporate Clamp Tower. It is a pure romp in ways of comedy and the art of film making itself, satirizing the disingenuous nature of the film industry. As I said, anyone looking for direct sequel will be sorely disappointed, because that's not what this movie was made to be.
Not sure what anyone making this movie was thinking.
rambo-gizmo lmao. the funniest part in the movie is when the girl starts talking about how she had a horrible experience on lincoln's birthday. it was making fun of a similar scene about a bad experience she had on christmas in the first movie. they did this during the climax, and her boyfriend interrupted her and said we really don't have time for this. and the story itself was funny.
Big production values but an idea that doesn't particularly gel well with the first Gremlins movie.
