The guy who plays Roadrash in this is the same dude who was Maynard (the pervert pawn shop owner) in Pulp Fiction. Still pretty scummy...

Certain celebs like Leaf Garret now riff internet vids on Tru TV's The World's Dumbest. Sweet irony in a way. But I don't know if that show is still going.

Funny when a voice actor from Fairly Oddparents is here. Especially when Trixie Tang is my Avatar. Ever met Cosmo, Trixie?
"My life was too perfect to have Fairies."
You did seem lonely despite your popularity, Trixie.
"I had Veronica and the other popular kids."
But most of them were really not your....
"Don't start that again, marijuana breath."
Okay okay. Would you tell crow that women exist as...you're one.

The old guy in this movie reminds me of a sub I used to get sometimes back in high-school named Coach LaRue. It's funny because we used to make fun of how old he was. Because he was ancient, he was a stowaway on Noah's arch, and his blood-type was discontinued. I tried to get him a birthday present once but I couldn't afford one after buying the candles. You know what he did in the war? He sacrificed cattle to Marduk.

I honestly want to see this movie remade with Daphne as the hero. Because all she wants to do is party and screw, she's apparently living her dream, making her almost immune to the hobgoblins's power. It could actually be a really good horror/comedy. Instead of being Hobgoblins. >.>

For some reason I have really put off watching this one. I know it's supposed to be one of the best, and I've seen little clips of it before, but I really haven't wanted to watch it. Maybe it's because I know it's suppose to be such a rip-off of Gremlins, maybe it's because I dread the acting I'm going to see in an obvious horror film...I don't know. But tonight, I'm finally going for it.

While I hesitate to ascribe ANYTHING positive to this movie, I have to admit that I find it moderately interesting that Nick's deepest desire is not focused on sex. It's about being the big war hero.

So...the old man has had the vault rigged to blow up for 30 years. WHY didn't he just kill them off before? There's really no explanation for that, and I really don't get it. He sees them killing everyone who comes in contact with them, and yet, he lets them live in the vault? What kind of idiot is he?

There's something perversely admirable about a film that dares to not feature a single likeable character.

Lookit what we're handed here: Old Blithering Idiot lets his partner: Bland Teen Stereotype get horribly murdered by alien monsters. He then hires Annoying Whiny Douche to replace him. On his second day on the job, Annoying Whiny Douche manages to release said monsters who, despite having an entire city of victims to choose from, concentrate all of their effort on Annoying Whiny Douche's friends. There's his girlfriend: Frigid Emasculating Shrew, and his "pals": Scrawny Repugnant Whore and her boyfriend: Greasy Macho Scumbag....last and assuredly least is the 5th wheel: Effeminate Pervert Loser.
What a cast!
There is NO ONE and NOTHING to root for in this film save for the sweet release of death.

The 80s was the only time you could get away with street fighting with nun-chucks as your weapon of choice. And they always bring a pair for their opponent. That takes the kind of foresight you wouldn't expect from a person who goes around picking fights with nun-chucks.

Okay people asked me about the hobgoblins remake like a month ago and I just today found out how to see replies lol so sorry. Rick Sloan actually submitted the original movie to MST3K himself. And the "sequel" makes refrences and in jokes to mst3k episode, plus that song the mst3k guys did "hobgoblins hobgoblins whatcha gonna do with those hobgoblins" they used a version of that song for the remake. I know you might not believe me but here is the Wikipedia page. Also you can get the movie off of the rifftrax website should you wish to see the thing. At least you used to be able to.
