Gremlins is one of those films that is near and dear to many. It has heart, horror, and humor. Gremlins 2 was... well, it was what it was.

Now, Chris Columbus has finished penning the script for Gremlins 3, and I'm juiced over it! I really hope that Joe Dante can be brought on board to direct, but it's not a necessity for me. But to think that Gizmo may die kind of sucks. Let's hope that's not the case.

gremlins 2 imo was its own thing. the actor cameos were the only highlight.

I'm kinda glad Gizmo doesn't exist. It's for society's own good.

Gremlins 2 is genius. One of the few sequels of the time where the director had to make demands to get complete creative control, and got it. He wanted to go over the top, and he got to do it.     https://www.avclub.com/joe-dante-1798208125

I love it. I put it up there with Short Circuit 2 in terms of sequels I like better but don't get the deserved recognition.

And I wouldn't call it just "wacky", nor less dark than the first movie, not that the first didn't have any darkness... Gremlins 2 has jokes in the same way Robocop 1 does. They're sharp and pointed, and they're hilarious, and maybe it's not your kind of humor but they have a point.

Before Chris Columbus made his announcement, my friends and I pitched our ideas for a Gremlins 3 on my podcast, SequelQuest and it gets crazy. You can listen here https://sequelquestpod.com/2017/05/04/ep39-gremlins-franchise-sequel/

I totally agree, I enjoy the wackiness of both of those sequels more than the originals. What about a Gremlins/Short Circuit crossover film? That would be wild.
