A Gremlins Remake is in the works....and this makes me one very sad kid. I know I'm only 17, but ever since I was a kid I never got into the cartoons and the movies of the day. I was the kinda kid that always stayed away from Pokemon and stupid shit like that and always wanted to watch TV shows and movies that my parents found interesting as kids, Shows like Loony Tunes.
One of the films that I got into heavily was Gremlins...
This film was my favorite movie as a kid, it was my first horror movie as a kid and it was a great feeling to be both scared and yet laugh at the same time in the same movie. Nothing could compare to it, I was the kid who bought a Gizmo plush toy and slept with it all the time...as weird as that sounds...
This movie was my childhood, whenever I threw a bitch fit as a kid my mom would put in Gremlins and I'd immediately shut up and watch the movie. The best part of the movie was I laughed all the time, I never got bored of that movie.
Today I still watch this movie and enjoy ever minute of it. The scene with the Gremlins watching Snow White continues to make me smile even to this day. I always have enjoyed this movie, and probably always will.
Then today I was watching television and I heard them talk about how a new Gremlins movie is finally getting closer. However Joe Dante has said that since he screwed up Loony Tunes Back in Action., Warner Brothers probably won't hire him to do a Gremlins 3. He also said the main actors are now to old to be in a Gremlins 3, which I think is nothing more then a cop out.
Then he said the dreaded word.....remake.
Joe Dante has said that they know have given up on Gremlins 3 and are instead doing a remake.
I usually give all remakes a chance, but this one is different. I know that no matter what!! The remake just won't be good mainly because of one thing ......... CGI.
The great thing about Gremlins is that no matter what your looking at. It always looks real, because the puppets and animatronics are actually there. But today Hollywood will undoubtedly rape the use of CGI.
I think CGI is a great tool and should be used in some cases, but instead of being used in spots where it's needed....CGI is instead used in spots where it isn't needed. CGI has become a lazy man's cheating tool and the no matter what, the remake is going to overuse it.
I've lost all hope on this movie already, and the only way they will bring back any form of hope is if the director of the remake actually comes out and says to the public "No CGI will be used." Then I will start getting excited.
Until then I always have my DVD of Gremlins 1 and 2 and this bad ass commercial...
