|23 T1||Future Force (1989) - May 17, 2018
"David A. Prior's 1989 sci-fi film set in the far-out distant future of the 1990's is aggressively boring in how lazy it is. David Carradine stumbles his way through this lazy excuse for a cheap sci-fi cop B-movie, with a drunken carefree malaise that lulls audiences into their own intoxicated stupor. Despite some minor B-movie schlock, there is nothing in this forgettable bore worth sitting through . "
|29 T2||Body Rock (1984) - May 17, 2018
"The year 1984 was undisputedly the year of the breakdancing movie. However lost in the shuffle of "Breakin'","Beat Street", and "Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo" was a movie starring the black hole of charisma that is Lorenzo Lamas, in a serious slog of an 80's dance/music video/movie about cultural appropriation. Although noteworthy for a few bafflingly fun so-bad-it's-good moments, there isn't enough here to recommend wasting your time getting fresh with this movie."
|48 T3||Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell (2018) - May 17, 2018
"At this point the "Tremors" franchise is just a vehicle to follow Michael Gross' character "Burt Gummer" throughout eternity. Part of me welcomes that, but the other part kind of wishes they would just leave the "Tremors" franchise alone at this point. After canceling another SyFy channel "Tremors" TV show, this one noteworthy for the return of Kevin Bacon, now all that "Tremors" fans have left are these movies starring Jamie Kennedy, which isn't much of a consolation prize."
|45 T3||Tremors 5: Bloodline (2015) - May 17, 2018
"Despite now being under new management, the "Tremors" franchise continues its steady descent in quality. Although the "Bloodline" gimmick is passable enough, especially considering where this series has been so far, but I really could have done with someone other than Jamie Kennedy to be the next generation of Graboid hunters. Despite the series' noticeable improvement in the quality of cheap CGI, the bigger "badder" African Graboid ancestors aren't that much fun as an addition to the mythology."
|48 T3||Tremors 4: The Legend Begins (2004) - May 17, 2018
"This "Tremors" Wild West prequel is a curious, but mildly watchable entry in the series for fans of the franchise. The series goes back in time to the origin of Perfection, Nevada while coming full circle on the origin of Graboids in the area, and their life cycle from eggs to "Sand Dragons" to "Graboids" to "Shriekers" to "Ass-Blasters" back to eggs and repeat. Although the origin story of the Gummer family in Perfection is neat for fans of the franchise, the series is now visibly wearing thin."
|67 T5||Tremors 3: Back to Perfection (2001) - May 17, 2018
"The last decent "Tremors" sequel manages to be entertaining by cashing in on the nostalgia from the original by returning to Perfection to rejoin some old characters. In addition, it takes a cue from the second film by adding to the Graboid mythology with the now notoriously named "Ass-Blasters". Despite Michael Gross' fan-favorite character climbing the billing to now lead the franchise, the supporting cast around him continually leaves much to be desired, just like all the new cheap CGI too."
|69 T6||Tremors II: Aftershocks (1996) - May 17, 2018
"If "Tremors"(1990) was a cheaper land version of "Jaws"(1975), than its follow-up direct-to-video sequel "Tremors II: Aftershocks"(1996) is the cash-grab equivalent to "Jaws 2"(1978). However, at least the Tremors franchise continually added new schlock to the Graboid mythology to try to keep the series from repeating itself too quickly. Although far from the original, this sequel has plenty to offer to hardcore fans of the first, and enough to be just watchable for those who stumble upon it."
|94 T10||Tremors (1990) - May 17, 2018
"It is no coincidence that "Tremors"(1990) is located in Perfection, NV. Practicality a perfect film, next to "Gremlins"(1984), this is the movie that made me fall in love with monster movies/creature features. However now, after seeing countless terrible films of its ilk since then, little did I know just how near perfect this film really was. Nearly every aspect of this low-budget gem is rock solid, from the monster effects, the ensemble of characters, the direction, to the airtight script."
|23 T1||The Emoji Movie (2017) - May 16, 2018
"As someone who watches their fair share of bad movies, I like to think I have good sense of how truly bad a movie is. So with all the hate surrounding this notorious poop emoji of a film I was kind of curious to see if it lived up to the hype, and although not a total dumpster fire, it certainly is bad. However, this mainstream generic blatant cash-grab is more befuddling lazy in how bad it is than anything else. Never close to being so-bad-it's-good, not really even meh at its best, but blah."
|53 T4||Mother's Day (1980) - May 15, 2018
"For a rape-and-revenge hicksploitation B-movie brought to you by Troma, this surprisingly ends up kind of entertaining. Entertaining in that odd mixed-bag of genuine uncomfortable sleaze and quirky dark humor that Troma can be really hit and miss with sometimes. Despite not being the sharpest hicksploitation rape-an-revenge B-moive, or really that funny just as a black comedy, the whole thing comes together to make for an interesting enough watch for fans of the genre with low expectations."
