22. Gremlins (1984) - Directed by Joe Dante
The boys are back with Gremlins - the iconic Christmas movie, creature feature, and Amblin classic. Joe Dante would later direct Small Soldiers, but his experience with Piranah and Twilight Zone: The Movie caught the attention of a young producer named Steven Spielberg. With future Harry Potter director Chris Columbus providing the screenplay, Dante, Columbus, and Spielberg create one of the biggest hits of the 1980s.
Beyond the fun little guys at the center of the film, Gremlins has an all-time great cast, excellent vocal performances, and some of the best craftsmen in the world.
