OK, I'm watching T5 on Syfy and just hit something. Burt chasing the AB that took the mechanic runs into it on a bridge where the AB set a trap. Burt fires semi-auto from a .30-06 that a little earlier was a bolt action. Now I can fire aimed fire with a lever gun as fast as anyone can fire aimed fire with a semi but the semi will absolutely empty the clip faster.

Haha, i noticed that. I think it was just bad editing.
"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."
Could be you are correct. Still, I always looked forward to 'reality gaps' that the original movies contained. Not that I enjoy poor work, I don't, but the plank breaking the window when Burt fires in T2 is not sloppy, it is just an artifact of the film process at the time. Just like the ants on "THEM" are obviously fake, they do not detract from the film. The scorpions in "The Black Scorpion" are interesting, actually a bit better than the ants but still, but not real. The story line there is such that the better special effects can not save the movie.
I guess I'm too much of a Ray Harryhausen fan to appreciate the computer graphics. I loved "Earth vs. the Flying Saucers" and the special effects were right for the story. I'm afraid the T5 effects were more of a distraction than a help for me.
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.

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

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.

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 ....

captbart: "BACK UP back up generator" ... the PhD trusted the tech and killed almost everyone. Burt NEVER completely trusts the tech and they survived.

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!
