Not my first time dumping into a thread willy-nilly! My head has been buzzing with these thoughts since I rewatched Gremlins last month. It's such a palette-cleanser during the holidays. Just want to mention one last thing, the most hilarious scene of The New Batch: when they are in the lab, the gremlin who grabs the beaker labeled, "ACID - DO NOT THROW IN FACE" which he immediately throws in the face of the gremlin standing next to him, who briefly reacts in pain, then holds up a Phantom of the Opera-type face mask on a stick. I absolutely fucking lost it. The comedic timing is unexpected and brilliant.
