Gremlins Commentary

As a special present to all of you, we sat down and watched Gremlins. You’ll hear our thoughts as the movie progresses, and maybe we’ll all gain a little holiday spirit by the end. Or we’ll be convinced all these foreign parts are trying to kill us. Find your copy of Gremlins and watch along with us. Happy Holidays!
