Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990)

The sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch is actually better than the original Gremlins (1984) in many ways: it's darker and more cynical, contains more pop culture references and takes on a bigger target -- corporate greed in New York City. John Glover stars as the thinly veiled Donald Trump character named Daniel Clamp; their logo is a giant "C" crushing the world into an oval shape. Billy (Zach Galligan) and Kate (Phoebe Cates) now work for Clamp, but still hold on to their small town sensibilities. When Gizmo's Chinatown home gets bulldozed to make way for a Chinatown-like strip mall, Gizmo finds his way back into Billy's hands. Before long, the slimy green guys are back. But this time, the electronically-rigged and constantly malfunctioning Clamp building is even more of a nemesis than the creatures. This time Dante hired Chuck Jones to animate an opening sequence (with Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck) and hired the great Christopher Lee to play a scientist. Plus Dick Miller returns in his original role to help fight the green beasties. Gremlins 2 only played for a week at my local theater, but it was my favorite movie of that summer. Steven Spielberg executive produced. read more...

Young Frankenstein (1974)

Young Frankenstein is one of Mel Brooks' three great classics, after The Producers and Blazing Saddles, and it was even a twofer, coming out several months after Blazing Saddles in 1974. After this, Brooks became bogged down with parodies, and never seemed to regain the freshness and unruliness he had here. read more...

Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995)

Mel Brooks' most recent film, Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995), should have recalled his classic Young Frankenstein, but it's an out-and-out failure. Oddly, it's more interested in telling the Bram Stoker story in a straightforward manner, inserting jokes only sporadically. Even then, the jokes are just not funny. The problem is that it's just not concerned with filmmaking; if it had spoofed Tod Browning or even Francis Coppola's version it might have gone somewhere. Leslie Neilsen plays the title role with a shaky Hungarian accent, and Brooks plays Van Helsing. Peter MacNicol, StevenWeber, Amy Yasbeck and Harvey Korman co-star. Brooks does a commentary track with his two co-writers Rudy De Luca and Steve Haberman, along with Weber and Yasbeck. It's not funny either. read more...

Scooby-Doo! and Kiss: Rock and Roll Mystery (2015)

There's something so very satisfyingly campy and culty about this teaming up of two decades-old icons, neither of which seems to have lost any of their popularity over many generations. By now we know that Scooby-Doo has returned in many forms since his TV debut in 1969: different cartoon series, as a puppy, live-action feature films, direct-to-video films, and even puppets. Meanwhile, the rock band KISS, whose first album was in 1974 and probably should have faded away around 1979, has endured, with new members, and with and without makeup. read more...

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)

The original Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie never got even a nibble of the love that the TV series had -- perhaps because its spoofy comedy didn't hit as hard as the moody emotions of the show -- but it has its own weird, "B" movie charms. (The whole comic idea behind the title, originally, was the juxtaposition between the brain-dead cheerleader image and the slayer's vicious skill.) Kristy Swanson was the original Buffy, with Donald Sutherland as her "trainer," Luke Perry as her potential beau, Rutger Hauer as the bad bloodsucker and Paul Reubens as his Renfield-like underling. It has some pretty funny, early-90s-era dialogue, but the scene that keeps me laughing is Reubens' extended, exaggerated death scene. It's like something out of some dark, lost episode of "Pee-wee's Playhouse." Hilary Swank makes her movie debut. Joss Whedon scripted, and Fran Rubel Kuzui directed. read more...
