    Wasn’t "Gremlins"set around Christmas?

    Yep. Gremlins is the best Christmas movie.

    Ironically, when I was a kid, some comedy show had a spoof of the sound of music where the lady is dancing, trying to avoid artillery shells going off around her.

    Or Charlie Brown and the Big Pumpkin or whatever the cartoon is called. But I like the Gremlins too. Hehe

    Oh sure. The Sound of Music just screams Halloween.

    Gremlins might have been made as a Christmas movie, but it was released in the spring, maybe the parent company didn’t want the backlash……

    Maybe not to you. But the end of the movie is about the family escaping from the Nazis, one by one. Nazis, for those of us over the age of 18, are some of the scariest real world beings. Forever sick….

    A lot of adults from that era also liked the idea of a family that escaped from the Nazis. I’m sure that part of the movie went completely over the head of ‘little girls’.

    I loved “The Sound of Music” but doubt a boy like Michael would. Boys love horror movies. But when I was his age I loved a gothic soap opera named “Dark Shadows” and I ran home from school every day to see it. And it still lives, how many nearly 50 year old soap operas do a remake with Johnny Depp?

    I keep thinking of Christopher Plummer’s reported “boy” take on The Sound of Music (he played the dad, Captain von Trapp): He referred to the movie as “The Sound of Mucus.” He reported that the role was the most challenging for him "“Because it was so awful and sentimental and gooey,” he explained with a laugh. “You had to work terribly hard to try and infuse some miniscule bit of humor into it.” http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/christopher-plummer-beginners-sound-music-268669

    I was a little girl when that movie came out. I loved it – until the Nazis appeared. I never wanted to see that movie again.

    Except for the original “Die Hard.”

    The Sound of Music is one movie that many generations enjoy. It’s my mother’s favorite movie, one of my favorites and my 8 year old loves it too.
