We continue our month of Joe Dante with a look at perhaps one of the zanier films in his filmography – Gremlins 2: The New Batch. There’s so much to love here, from the wonderful puppet design to the brilliant and comedic turn from Christopher Lee. Dante even got Chuck Jones to do the intro to the film, which should tell you everything else you need to know.
We also briefly discuss his film Small Soldiers and get into some of the hype surrounding that film. There’s a lot of discussion packed into this episode so be sure to keep your Mogwai hidden away in a cool, dry place (preferably with Rambo playing on a nearby TV) before settling down to listen to this week’s episode.
