About this deal

Motion Comics: Gremlins– The Gift of the Mogwai– and Gremlins– The Last Gremlin– these two motion comics recap the film. Gremlins” was a 1984 comedy/fantasy film with a nice touch of horror, executive produced (and presented) by Steven Spielberg. Spielberg is a filmmaker who really needs no introduction. This movie was directed by Joe Dante, best known for also directing films like “Piranha” (1978), “The Howling” (1981), “The Burbs” (1989), “Matinee” (1993), and [this film’s] sequel “Gremlins 2: The New Batch” (1990). The screenplay was written by Chris Columbus. Most know Columbus for directing films such as “Adventures in Babysitting” (1987), “Home Alone” (1990), “Mrs. Doubtfire” (1993), “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” (2001), and its first sequel “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” (2002).

This is one UHD presentation that I had been extremely excited about. There are very noticeable improvements over the unimpressive and outdated Blu-ray from 2009. Fine detail shows vast improvement. Keep in mind that the film is visually fairly reserved with brown, grey, and muted colors for the most part. For collectors like myself, the old disc will become a frisbee. That said – is this UHD impressive on par with the amazing presentations we have seen on newer films or Close Encounters of the Third Kind? Not so much. But fans of the film are going to be excited to finally have a truly quality release of this classic film. Audio: How’s it sound? Gremlins is a blast. The film still has a devoted following thirty-five years since it was released for a reason. I consider it to be one of the funniest family films to ever be released and fans of Joe Dante will adore it. There are not that many family films that I re-watch every year, but this film makes the cut. Video: How’s it look?Making-of Featurette (6:21) is a short promotional featurette from 1984 with behind-the-scenes footage.

evaluated the 1080p disc's video, nor can I say whether I would have given it the same score as Dustin, had I been the reviewer Every couple of years we hear about a revival or remake of Joe Dante’s Explorers, the wonderful fantasy about junior high schoolers that fly an amusement park capsule into outer space. I hope something happens, just to get Paramount off its duff for a Blu-ray of the original show. So many genre favorites have hit Blu-ray this year, that anything seems possible.Additional Scenes – a little over ten minutes of cut scenes from the film. There is an optional commentary by director Joe Dante.

Joe Dante's cult classic wreaks havoc on Ultra HD with an exceptionally beautiful HEVC H.265 encode, delivering a marked improvement over previous Blu-ray predecessors and making this the best the movie has ever looked on any home video format. Further addendum: The "Video" score of 2.5 has been copied from Dustin Somner's 2009 review. I have not newlyThe Take 2 Access screenings have our house lights up, volume turned down and freedom of movement for families attending. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray + Digital Code of Gremlins gives this comedy classic the best presentation yet possible, showing how top quality hard-media home video blows away compressed video streams. Wing's shop that were previously obscured, and the enchanted small-town world of Bedford Falls—excuse me, Kingston Falls—is more Lastly, the practical special effects hold up really well here for a film celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. It’s a very solid 4K presentation in terms of video quality, the cropping and incorrect aspect ratio are forgivable, and it in comparison to the Blu-ray can be impressive. Still, it’s not quite as amazing visually as some of you might have expected it to be. I personally find it to be impressive and a nice improvement. Sorry.
