Tremors and Graboids

JerryBobCoJerryBobCo Senior MemberPosts: 6,040 Senior Member

I have to admit that I like the Tremors movies.  They're just plain, silly fun to watch.  I watched the first 2 of the series years ago, and watched the last of the series, "A Cold Day in Hell" last night.  My wife is out of town, and would not enjoy them, so I took the opportunity to watch them.

Maybe I'm reverting to my grade school or jr. high days, but I like the silly things.

Anyone else?

    Earl ... What kind of fuse is that? 

    Burt ... Cannon fuse 

    Earl ... What the hell do you use it for? 

    Burt ... My cannon!

    I liked the first two of the series, but most after that were kind of dumb.
    Political correctness is a liberal degrading of the freedom of speech. George Orwell's 1984 famously incorporated the notion of limiting thought through language (see Newspeak)." Meanwhile, the beatings will continue until morale improves around here.

    Yep, I will be old too someday but I have a lot of things to do first. I look forward to it actually, just not exactly in a rush to get there lol.

    You may not get fat, but stretch marks and vericose veins will get you.

    They're all kind of dumb.  That's what makes them so much fun to watch.

    They had the good sense to poke fun at themselves. It's what makes them fun to watch!

    But I would've pushed Melvin into a graboid by the third movie......... >:)

    I liked all the movies. Just campy enough to take the edge off. 
    Even the TV series had a couple of.....uh......good "points".
