GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCHAh, "Gremlins 2: The New Batch" ... How do we love thee, let us count the ways: 1. Rambo Gizmo, 2. John Glover's Daniel Clamp, and 3. Something we probably missed amidst all your chaos and nonsensical plot points.

Yes, this week, the CAN'T WAIT! crew and special guest Drew Taylor tackle Joe Dante's (classic?) 1990 NYC romp, from its over-the-top-gory gremlin deaths and DNA splicing to its mysteriously contrived storyline and vanishing characters (RIP, Mr. Wing). Other topics discussed include how freaking scary the gremlins actually are, our general distaste for the movie's lead characters (if you can call them that), and all the behind-the-scenes action that led to "Gremlins 2" becoming one Hollywood's most exuberant flops.

Remember to tune in next time, when we discuss Phil's pick," the 1993 Renny Harlin joint "Cliffhanger." Hang on!
