Tremors is the type of film that I think people would look at the trailer and go nah, but if you watch the film then it will grow on you fast with its humour, fun and qwerky characters. This is another film that contains a group of people trapped in a place away from society and something is going to get them, you just can’t beat that setting for a monster film. The film is massively into honouring the low budget 1950’s monster films and any film that does this gets me as a fan. The story is smooth and plays out so organically compared to most monster flicks, and the monsters themselves are really unique in the way they look and even the way they kill. You don’t get many unique monsters anymore which I think is really sad, however you do get a few though and I always like to use this film to compare how original they really are. The characters in the film might be my favourite part, after all I am a believer in connecting with the characters you are watching on film, and it’s hard to beat that first scene in which you get to know the two main characters.

Were back to the top ten’s and this could be the last of 2000-2010, so let me make it a good one. Kid’s films, mainly animations which let’s face it are the best. I am a sucker for these films as I grew up with a few of the earlier ones and watched the later ones with my cousins so I didn’t seem weird. So many films missed the cut off date, for example A Bug’s Life (1998), Tarzan (1999), The Iron Giant (1999) and Toy Story 2 (1999). Good year for kids films, but I am unwilling to change the almighty rules of the top ten. For I have spoken my gibberish! You know the rules but still at the end vote for favourite film from part 1, then in part 2 being released Monday do the same, then after a while I will post the results.
