Good fun movie

Tremors. Stars Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Finn Carter, Michael Gross, and Reba McEntire. Michael and Reba are survivalists with a huge armory played with humor and respect as gun owners. They're not the stars but ancillary to the plot. Reba is great and supportive of her husband and appears to know a lot about guns, Gross is serious but not a right-wing radical.

A classic from about 1990. If you haven't seen it, it's a great monster movie. It was well received when it came out. Fun and funny.

    Giant man eating worms.

    I've always wondered if the spice worms in Dune were related :uhm:
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Yep, Michael Gross had one of the best ones ...

    Earl - What kind of fuse is that?
    Burt - Cannon fuse ...
    Earl - What the hell do you use it for?
    Burt - My cannon.

    I totally agree. The first time I watched this was with my son's Boy Scout troop at one of the scout leader's house. The kids loved it, and it was well done enough that I found it enjoyable. I've even watched one or two of the sequels.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    It was on our satellite channel about 6 weeks ago. I remember watching it when it first came out many years ago.............so I now have it recorded permanently and have watched it twice since then.

    Its a good watch...............Now days it would be regarded as anti PC I guess with regards to gun ownership.

    Reba, to Michael: "I know, I know, he thanks he knows everything."

    No tracks, no sign, no spoor, you'd think that after eating all those sheep they'd have to take a dump somewhere. Burt to Heather.

    Earl: Hey, Rhonda you ever seen anything like this before?

    Valentine: Oh, sure Earl. Everyone knows about them, we just didn't tell you.
