Wasn't Gizmo CGI at times in Gremlins 2?

I thought he was CGI in the scene where he ran down an alleyway and when he was dancing on the table.

I imagine that's just the puppet being controlled like normal, but on green screen so the hand or wires can't be seen, as you can actually see all the puppet in that shot rather than just the head and torso with the puppeteers hands hidden out of shot.

Oh, the way 'reboot' has become acceptably assimilated parlance

Good one! Should your version be made, hopefully Ed Balls the Gremlin will be the one that gets cooked in the microwave.

I dont get the hate that reboots/remakes get - if you dont like them - dont watch.

We often prefer the films we grew up with - even if they were remakes (which some are). We feel that the one made in our era is the definitive version (for example - John Carpenters "The Thing" is the definitive version to me - even though its a remake).

However nostalgic we feel about these movies however - the fact remains that some are dated (especially culturally) and have less relevance to today's target audiences. To young people today - the newer versions of some of the classic films we grew up with are the definitive/best versions - just as the versions we grew up with are the best/definitive versions of movies our parents grew up with.

I do agree that Hollywood has gone over the top/too soon with some reboots - but i'd say, once a movie is over 30 years old - it becomes less relevant to new audiences and is prime for a reboot/remake.
