It was a really good read and some really cool pictures in it as well!
"What we're dealing with here is obviously some diabolical, water absorbing agent, that mostly likely had it's genesis in our very own long abandoned, government supported, secret biotech laboratory. For God's sake be rational."
The viewer always needs to see eyes in a creature, otherwise it is too anonymous and not as terrifying
I'd really want to see what Giger would say to that piece of...! :)
One of my aims was to bring the Assblaster much closer in appearance to the Graboids...
... achieving the exact opposite. Whilst personally I'd prefer AB's never to be invented, the T3 ones at least did look right and were immediately identifiable as another part of the graboid's life cycle.
This ugly abomination looks like a TIE fighter which got some sort of a really ugly cancer, a pair of legs, and a vagina dentata.
It is, in my personal opinion, one of the strongest reasons why T5 is that bad (along with detachable tongues, second only to a rather unburtlike Burt).
The ABs make evolution sense; since Grabiods eat anything and everything (except 4-12 - series episode) it is up to the ABs to get far enough away from the worms for the eggs to have a chance. In T3 the ABs LOOK like Shriekers who have changed. In T5 the ABs are absolutely different and can not be explained by evolution. They look like nothing in the Grabiod world and that very strangeness is for me, the problem.

There was SO much potential with the African variations.
I know Stampede said when they were doing their Tremors 5 (set in Australia) there were going to be some regional differences to their Graboids as well, but by and large they were still going to look like Graboids. That's... not the case in Bloodlines.
Agreed. There is a lot of room for variations and similarity in the various critters. A Panda, Polar, Grizzly and Black are all bears and identifiable as such in spite of their differences. There are mammals and marsupials that are almost identical in form and appearance as they fill the same niche in their respective environments. This is logical. Still, in T5, there is NO explanation as to how the ABs develop from a worm. Except for El Blanco, worms and Shriekers/ABs do not exist at the same time. Since there is a "hatching" from a clutch of eggs all of the worms change at about the same time. Shriekers also change at the same time. The T5 scenario just does not make logical sense. I don't mind the suspension of belief required for a good movie but I really, really hate it when, after giving the plot the basic background they asked for, they are then so careless with the rest of the movie.
I guess I'm grumpy this morning.

project412: Really can't wait for the new Arrow release of Tremors! After the terrible DNR on the original Blu-ray release from over a decade ago, I am so excited to see Tremors finally getting the remaster that it deserves.

captbart: 412, I agree. thanks for the heads up.

timforston: I wish they could do a thorough release like that with 2-4 and I would literally pay anything for a TV series dvd with a commentary track for each episode
Oct 12, 2020 19:02:26 GMT -5
captbart: timforston, yep, if they did the whole series (would like the TV series as well) in a collection they'd certain have my money.
Oct 13, 2020 11:40:53 GMT -5
project412: Yeah it would be really cool if Arrow or someone else like that could get the sequels and series, so I can upgrade my old DVD copies.

project412: Tremors: Shrieker Island is out today!

timforston: I got another attack pack and the Blu Ray individual. I'm a sucker 😭😭
Oct 21, 2020 17:03:46 GMT -5
captbart: timforston, does the new attack pack have all the movies and maybe the series? I hope so and then I'll join you as a sucker. I feel so USED!
Oct 24, 2020 10:54:19 GMT -5
project412: If I'm not mistaken, I believe it has all of the films, but not the show. The 2010 DVD release of the series remains the only way to get it on disc.
Oct 24, 2020 20:48:06 GMT -5
timforston: Yeah only the movies 😒
Oct 26, 2020 20:44:49 GMT -5
captbart: thanks, guys
Oct 28, 2020 20:20:22 GMT -5
captbart: Hope you guys all had a happy thanksgiving. in weird times it is good to stop and remember that is a lot more good than bad out there.

captbart: Just a word to say HI. I try to check the site several times a week.

captbart: binge watching the Tremors TV series this morning. Burt is about to rescue Tyler after El Blanco ate his car. I do LOVE these movies. I appreciate Burt's "direct" approach to life.
May 22, 2021 10:48:34 GMT -5
captbart: "Scary when Burt starts being right about things!" Gotta love the Tremors one liners.
May 22, 2021 11:42:56 GMT -5
captbart: Just got a glimpse of Burt's wall in "Night of the Sherikers" .... all those blank spots on that wall are really sad ....
May 22, 2021 12:32:53 GMT -5
captbart: "BACK UP back up generator" ... the PhD trusted the tech and killed almost everyone. Burt NEVER completely trusts the tech and they survived.
May 22, 2021 12:49:37 GMT -5
captbart: just finished all 13 episodes .... made for a fun day and my bride watched it with me. This was a good day.
May 22, 2021 20:40:56 GMT -5
timforston: That does sound like a good relaxing day right there!
