Get Ready for Seconds... They're Back
A batch of unhatched critter eggs are mistaken for Easter eggs by the country-folk inhabitants of Grover's Bend and, before long, the ferocious furballs are on the rampage again.
Film #23 of the March Madness 80s Sci-Fi Movie Challenge!
Lets address the elephant in the room! Scott Grimes (Brad Brown) is back! In the original he was a cute mischievious little boy and a joy to watch! In Critters 2 not so much!
Now that we got that out of the way lets dive in to the deep end of the pool and get to the nitty gritty! Any film that features an easter bunny, a nude playboy centerfold, carnivorous critters and alien bounty hunters is a film you've got to see to believe!
If you like your cheese spread on thick than this film is definitely worth checking out!
TODAY'S TEMPERATURE - 26C. MINIMUM TEMPERATURE REQUIRED FOR FULL REVIEWING - 20C. STILL ON STRIKE. Fuck's sake.
Yes, I did enjoy this more than the original, as I speculated yesterday. I can't be arsed linking to that review because it's too hot. The cast isn't as interesting and it loses M. Emmet Walsh in favour of Barry Corbin. As substitutions go, it's not a bad one, but if they really do have to use Northern Exposure alumni in a film, I'd always much prefer Janine Turner make an appearance. No offence, Barry.
This one's a bit funnier than the original (especially the jingle in the burger restaurant) and the ending's really good as well. I don't know why they decided…
Critters 2 is a far superior sequel when it comes to entertainment. Far campier, much more violent and crazy, and featuring a ton of tongue-in-cheek jokes and some very questionable content for being rated PG-13; Critters 2: The Main Course takes a bite out of the original and is plenty more satisfying for amping it all up.
Very decent sequel.
Pretty much just as fun as the first film. It's just missing every element of Horror that the first film had. This is more Sci-Fi/Comedy than anything else.
First off it was very cool to see Tom McLoughlin in the smallest of roles as the Church Guard. He directed my favorite Friday the 13th film. He also did the Freddy's Nightmares TV show.
Also it was hilarious seeing David Ursin in this. He played Harvey the News Anchor in Die Hard.
Garris does a good job keeping this fun. Good idea to pick up 2 years after the events of the first film and revisit the characters. They could have very easily just put the Critters somewhere…
First things first, I did not realize this was directed by Mick Garris and written with David Twohy.
Critters 2 does a lot of things right. The bigger budget meant better creature effects, which is good. Garris and Twohy also upped the comedy, which is good and bad. I laughed way more than I did during the first one, but a lot of the comedy misses by a mile. The movie also takes a long time to get going and lulls a bit in the middle, which is bad.
Ultimately, the good cancels out the bad and you are left with a totally enjoyable sequel to a totally enjoyable movie.
Critters was a fun horror sleeper hit, sure it was riding the coattails of Gremlins but it was a fun flick and wasn't quite as corny as other imitations like Ghoulies or Munchies. In Critters 2 is even more fun, the horror element gets changed in for more of a comedy tone, but that doesn't keep things from getting gory. The script helmed by director Mick Garris (Sleepwalkers, The Stand, Desperation) & David Twohy (Pitch Black, Below) is a ooey gooey crowd pleaser. The story starts from off 2 years after the events in the first film occurs, with our previous hero Bradley Brown returning to the small town to visit his grandmother. The town doesn't believe his stories of the…
I gotta admit, I like it even better than the first! It's so much more fun and is also crazier and gorier.
The German dubbing is insane, because every time you see the Critters, sometimes even when they are still eggs, you hear them in this version crack stupid jokes and silly rhymes! It's definitely a love-it-or-hate-it-situation, but I'm mostly on the "love" side.
My recent journey through the odd genre of Little Monsters has led me to a strange conclusion. Part 2 is the best of them all. Examples: Gremlins 2, Ghoulies 2 and now Critters 2. Okay that is not a ton of examples, but this is just another incredibly over the top sequel. This film picks up a few years after the events of Critters and brings back a handful of cast members, then proceeds to fly off the handle the first chance it gets. The serious tone of the first film is wholly ignored and lots for a far sillier approach. The kills are bloodier and happen much more often. How this film got a PG 13 rating is a true mystery. I still suggest starting a part 1, but just consider that overly serious Gremlins ripoff the boat that gets you to Critters 2 island. Enjoy!
tosco, mas divertido. foi bom ter revisto os dois primeiros.
This movie renewed love for New Line Films.
I unashamedly give this movie 4 1/2 stars, because ladies and gentlemen. IT ISN'T A BAD MOVIE! The Critters movies are really quite obscure now, and it tends to be a miracle if you've found someone who has heard of them. And as to casual cinema goers these movies immediately seem like a Gremlins rip off and are shrugged off and immediately down rated. But as i said in my review of the first film. The script to Critters came first. The film came later. But i really do enjoy this movie. It's like the 'Aliens' of b-movies. It's just that bit better than the first.
First thing i really enjoyed about this was the character development, and new characters.…
Critters is a franchise that may not be a solid one, but still each one is a fun watch in one way or more.
This sequel happens to be my favorite of the series.
I've wanted a "Critter" egg for so long.
The perfect film for Easter, though the most terrifying thing in it is the old lady who insists on giving the kids carob bunnies over chocolate ones. Oh the horror!
Everything good about the original, but way better.
It's always bummed me out that Lee doesn't turn into Freddy, though.
Between the ages of 9 and 17, I had a best friend. Not one of many, just one. As they…
