Gremlins ★★★½

“You say you hate Washington's Birthday or Thanksgiving and nobody cares, but you say you hate Christmas and people treat you like you're a leper.”

Best: Score, terrific special effects, direction, story
Worst: Mediocre acting, stupid characters
Notable Bit: One of the studio notes to Director Joe Dante and Executive Producer Steven Spielberg on seeing the first cut was that there were too many gremlins. Spielberg suggested cutting them all out and calling this movie "People".
