    Yeah, it's ridiculous. Ridley Scott used CGI well in Prometheus although the characters often behaved like idiots instead of actual people, but so often CGI is overused with awful pathetic-looking results. Just look at John Carpenter's The Thing compared to the horrible prequel/reboot-in-disguise. It's really interesting what Alec Gillis said about that recently on Reddit:

    Our Kickstarter for 'Harbinger Down' is a response to the threat to practical effects. Audiences seem to love it but studios prefer it less and less for a number of reasons. Practical effects are cheaper and often more realistic but studios chase tax incentives offered in other countries that don't have the ability to create animatronics. CGI tends to be done all over the world and the studios would rather get 30% back on their money than the 'bad spend' here in Los Angeles. The net result is that they spend more money on CGI but on paper they look like their saving money because of tax rebates. It's really a penny-wise, pound-foolish way of thinking. Most hands-on producers understand the short-sightedness but top-level bureaucrats push a blanket policy of pursuing tax incentives. Not to get long-winded, but the CGI pipeline mirrors a corporate structure and executives tend to be more comfortable with 'product' that comes from a line of cubicles rather than a messy creature shop.

    I think CGI is even more out of place in horror movies. I absolutely hate CG blood. It never looks good. And I can't think of one CG werewolf that beats An American Werewolf in London. My favorite horror movies all use practical FX: John Carpenter's The Thing, David Cronenberg's The Fly, Aliens, Predator, The Exorcist, Poltergeist, An American Werewolf in London, Gremlins, etc. CGI might be good to enhance if it's used sparingly and not done for blood or creatures, but they almost always go overboard. I keep thinking of the Fright Night remake and the stupid CG vampire mouths.

    The rumor mill claims Gizmo and Co. are gearing up for their big screen return.

    According to Ain't It Cool News, Warner Bros. is "moving quickly" on a remake of the 1984 cult classic Gremlins. A Gremlins 3 had been kicked around for years, but there has been increased chatter over the last year that a reboot of Joe Dante's creature feature was gaining momentum at Warners.

    Gremlins was exec produced by Steven Spielberg so any remake or third film wouldn't be able to happen without the bearded one's consent.

    What in the hell is next? Pretty In Pink? God, Hollywood is SO out of ideas. That's very sad, considering how many good books are out there just waiting to be made into films (shameless self plug averted ). If Hollywood does start remaking the John Hughes canon, I think it will be time to simply give up on that ghost.

    I think it might be refreshing to see an updated version of this. This was always a favorite when I was little lets see if they can't darken it up a bit?
