Gremlins: Not-Quite-Christmas, Part One

After a slightly longer-than-expected break (several months instead of several weeks), we’re back!

Last year — when we watched The Nightmare Before Christmas and Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town — we pitted two Christmas movies against each other. This year, we’re doing the same thing.

Well, sort of.

This weekend, we’re watching two not-quite-Christmas movies, the first of which is “Gremlins” (1984), which was directed by Joe Dante, written by Chris Columbus and stars Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates and Howie Mandel. Whether you’re a total n00b who’s never seen it, or the sort of geek who watches “Gremlins” every Christmas without fail, go watch it now and then listen to our discussion!

Gremlins is available to stream on Netflix, or you can rent it from all the usual places: iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Vudu.
