Watched Gremlins for the 1st time since 1984 w my kids. Holy cow, what an

absolutely asinine movie. Had no recollection of it from watching it as a kid beside the fact that the bad Gremlins destroyed stuff.

I can forgive the 1980's special effects - the Gremlins looked like something from the Dollar Store - but the clueless characters and paper thin plot made it almost unwatchable. How was that movie ever popular?

Do yourselves and your kids a favor - skip it for something more interesting, like watching your grass grow.
