[on Gremlins (1984)] What I like in movies especially are movies that do things that you can’t do in real life and show you things that you can’t see by walking out in the street. And there have been a lot of great movies that show you real life as it is lived and should be lived. But my favorite kind of movies are the ones that show you things that you can’t see anywhere but in the movies. And this picture? Believe me, you’ll never see this stuff except in the movies.
