    ★★★★

    A movie that is both a super-cute family film and at the same time a great little creature/monster horror movie. I was super scared of the Gremlins as a kid (yes, even Gizmo), so I never watched it until now. This is such an interesting movie that manages to have some pretty scary stuff in it while always staying super funny, mostly light-hearted and great for a family Christmas watch.

    Watching my aunt joyfully sing along to the hilarious scene where the Gremlins are all watching Snow White in a theater will be something that I'll remember forever. This movie ist just a really fun time.

    Upon rewatch, I realized that the movie tails off a bit in its third act, which made me subtract half a star this time. Nevertheless, the first two acts of this movie is some of the most fun you could possibly have in an action blockbuster, and it's the most refreshingly fun Tom Cruise has been since Tropic Thunder. Just an all-around great time.

    I was unsure whether this film can be enjoyed as much now after the allegations against Kevin Spacey. I was kicking myself for not watching the movie earlier, feeling that the movie is now ruined and can't be enjoyed anymore. I'm certain that there are countless people who cannot watch and enjoy this film anymore because of Spacey - I mean, he plays a guy falls in love with a teenager, for God's sake.

    In my case, I can honestly…
