Thanx--always nice to know someone's out there watching this stuff.

There's a scene in Gremlins 2 where the characters grapple with this conundrum. "It's always midnight somewhere!"

You are obviously a person with good taste.

We call them LGBT Gremlins today.
Actually, that one was simply referred to as Girl Gremlin on the set.

Hitchcock told the story about the mom who complained her daughter wouldn't take a shower after seeing PSYCHO.
"Send her to the dry cleaners," he said.

It's too bad really--there are very few mid-level movies now. They're either all super-expensive blockbusters or really cheap Paranormal types. And as for originality--Robocop? Spider Man? Do we really need new versions of these??

Believe it or not, I alerted Warners to the similarities between Gizmo and the Furby--and lo and behold, soon there was an actual Gizmo Furby!

I'd certainly lean toward puppets because there's nothing like having the monsters on the set with the actors, but I'd be foolish to say I'd reject all CGI, because there's a place for it. I'm sure there have been major advances in puppeteering since 1990!

Dunno, nobody seems to be knocking down doors at WB to make another one.
