Tremors is an excellent B movie- exactly the correct way a movie of this kind must be made and presented. Starring Greg Ward and Kevin Bacon, this sci-fi star's giant underground worms who wreak havoc on a tiny town consisting of less than a dozen people. It is cheesy, yet the characters are relatable. The pacing is very good, and the film never rushes onto the next monster action sequence. Kevin Bacon is great as Valentine and country singer Reba Mccntyre plays his love interest in a role that is cherubic and bound to get the singer more attention. The special effects are very good and not for one second did the graboids look fake or planted in. There have been many B monster movies made since Tremors, which on it own continued with many sequels, but none have been able to match the sheer charm and boldness of tremors. Directors trying to make films in a similar genre need not look far from Tremors to find great inspiration.
Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow is a visually stunning film so incredibly atmospheric it makes you yearn to live in the recreated town of Sleepy Hollow, even though judging by the threat of a ghost tormenting its population one would consider otherwise. This is a gorgeous film and the cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki- who has since become a highly respected DOP must be given all the dues. The gothic atmosphere seeping through the fantastic production design is something to savor. Based on Washington Irving's tale "The legend of Sleepy Hollow" Johnny Depp stars as the well meaning but cowardice Ichabod Crane who comes to this town to investigate the murders which are all similar in nature- gruesomely beheaded. This is a great film which has been unfairly criticized.
