  1. bryanvmh's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    Narrative schmarative, Hulk Hogan will tear off his shirt for your regularly scheduled program

  2. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    A hyper, anti-corporate looney toon. A couple of things that really impressed me were just how committed the movie remains to its satire, and all the different angles it finds on corporate culture, even right up to its final breath ("This is what I've been looking for!). I actually think a number of its points hold remarkably well, even to this day, and that's usually the mark of solid satire.

  3. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    A sequel that is bigger, funnier, more over-the-top and have a better supporting cast than the original (any film with both John Glover, Robert Picardo and Christopher Lee in roles is worth a visit). It also has more varied and interesting Gremlins and fanastic cameos by Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. The murder of film critic Leonard Maltin slamming the original film is the best self-parody I have ever seen in a film.

  4. James Mackin's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    Consider this review a placeholder. I need to watch this under the influence of a hallucinogen.

  5. Dana Henson's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    This is live action Looney Tunes. Dante went completely off the rails and made one of the craziest, off-the-wall, slapstick, strange films of the era. It is incredibly entertaining and fun, filled with tons of little easter eggs and visual gags. The special effects are mind-blowingly amazing. Maybe some of the best Stan Winston's team has ever created.

  6. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    The pure, uncut heroin version of Joe Dante, working on a budget he'd never get again and using it to live out the most outrageous fantasies of an anarchic sugar-high live-action cartoon. There are some wickedly clever jokes here, but whether it tops the first one is a matter of academic taste. Me, I like the cohesion of the original more, and the soulfulness of Matinee trumps all. But you teach the controversy.

  7. Richard Tines's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    Referential and self-referential sometimes to a fault, this lighter, more slapstick sequel finds the villains multiplying inside a NYC skyscraper.... Nowhere near as good as the first, but holds a mirror up to the absurdity of the situations (after all, isn't every part of the day after midnight?)... Watchable for a few turns if you're a fan of Joe Dante or comic Mayhem in general....

  8. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    2.5 stars. A touch too post-modern to be pure untrammelled infantile ID, but still a great puppetry showcase! "Everybody here gets to design their own gremlin." "So you mean, like, what if there was a brainy gremlin?" "You talking about a gremlin with glasses who can talk and sing 'New York New York'? That's brilliant - it's in the movie! Done!" (Key and Peele, ''Gremlins 2' Brainstorm' sketch)

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    Une suite particulièrement réjouissante où une fois de plus horreur et humour sont adroitement mêlés . www.cinefiches.com

  10. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    If you watch the deleted scenes on the DVD they play subliminal messages to the tower staff. One of them is ' Clamp would make excellent president.' So that's how Trump did it.

  11. HKFanatic's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    Much like "Aliens" or "Batman Returns," this is a sequel that doubles down on what made the original film so successful while wisely staking its own identity. In this 106-minute homage to Looney Tunes, Joe Dante himself proves just as unhinged as the gremlins; while the original film retained the feeling of an Amblin production, "Gremlins 2" is a singular, auteurist work from a far too under-appreciated filmmaker.

  12. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

  13. Palmat's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    Fun and irreverent sequel that ups just about everything and delivers slapstick comedy and great effects. The somewhat "serious" tone from the first film is ditched completely and the focus is clearly on the gremlins and both Gizmo, Billy and Kate get to play second fiddle. So the human angle and grounding is largely missing which makes this less engaging than the first one.

  14. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    Quizás uno de los ejemplos más divertidos y delirantes del cine posmoderno y autoconciente. Mis escenas favoritas: la discusión sobre lo absurdo de las reglas para mantener a los gremlins a raya, Leonard Maltin siendo atacado por las criaturas y, el momento cumbre, la proyección interrumpida por los gremlins y su continuación tras la advertencia de Hulk Hogan.

  15. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

  16. Landen Celano's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    This is what happens when pop culture implodes upon itself.

  18. 1318's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

  19. THE APOLL0's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    White flight personified in film.

  21. Junda Mane's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    One of the greatest sequels ever made. So many glorious movie references...

  22. Westley's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    I think this one might be even better than the original. It's a great New York movie.

  23. Jinsie's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    I came to 'Gremlins' later in life, so it's without nostalgia that I can say I enjoyed the sequel more - a blast of postmodern film references and satire.

  24. wolfmansRazor's rating of the film Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    With apologies to Joe Adamson, G2 is a history of the Gremlins and a satire on the rest of the world. I love that the dystopia of this film is not an oppressive government or a post-apocalyptic hellscape; it's a relentlessly corporatized and consumerized skyscraper. But Gremlins 2 isn't limited to any one target or even one point of view. Dante throws every gag he can think of at the wall, and most of them stick.
