Is it Civilized? No. Clearly not. Fun, but by no means Civilized!

This is brilliant! Fans of the original will love it, but this movie is original and hilarious enough to appeal to anyone. It makes fun of the originals, satirizes many aspects of civilization and human behavior, and makes fun of sequels in general and in the process becomes one of the best sequels I have ever seen! The Gremlins and Gizmo look better than ever, And the havoc is even funnier! You get to see old friends: Billy, Katie, Mr and Ms, Futterman, Grampa, as well as many new faces, including many, MANY mutant Gremlins! Even Bugs, Daffy and Hulk Hogan make an appearance!
The making of short is cool, too. It makes fun of makings of, treating the Gremlins and Gizmo as real characters. But if you're looking for more informative insights into how the movie was actually made, you should watch the main movie with the commentary track. There's many deleted scenes and one of the theatrical trailers, too. Only downside is I wished they let you choose whether you saw the theatrical version of the movie or home video version. There is a different scene they made for the home video release, without spoiling too much. And I wish I could choose to see a version of the film on the BD with that home video scene in the movie like it was ment to be.
