My personal favorite Christmas movie, my Christamas classic, Gremlins. Joe Dante’s take on the stupidity of the consumer tied with the fun of a monster movie, Gremlins is the best offbeat Christmas movie to watch with the family. Packed with dark humor and a blend of tones that somehow work together Gremlins proves an endlessly entertaining Christmas ride as you follow the antics set up by each ghoulish creature on Christmas Eve. We must also remember this film came out more than 20 years ago and the creature effects still look personalized and menacing or cute and cuddly in the case of Gizmo who you just want to keep when you first set eyes on him. Packed with laughs and shrills, Gremlins is a fantastically fun family time on Christmas and an 85 out of 100 in my ranking system.
