Haiku Review: Gremlins 2: The New Batch

The first Gremlins was
funny, scary. A classic.
This one? Kinda sucked.

The problem? They went
overboard with the jokes. And
they weren't funny jokes.

It was just one gag
after another, with no
real plot or story.

Glover's character
was fun, as was the brainy
Gremlin. Not much else.

Aw. I always liked this movie. Maybe because it came out when I was 6?

See, I love Gremlins 2 even more than Gremlins. As far as I'm concerned, Gremlins just sets up all the jokes in Gremlins 2. (OK, Gremlins 2 just takes the jokes from Gremlins and goes overboard with them. But they do it so cleverly!)

I'm with Annika. I actually watched this one in the cinema and thought it was a hoot. I particularly loved the bit where the gremlins "break down" the film and start doing Deformed Rabbit and all that stuff. Plus the filthy laughter, and Christopher Lee, and Glover...
