    I am so happy to see the monkeys win at least in this round. Have just re-watched it, which reconfirmed my opinion that it is one of the best films ever made (will probably make my top 50 when i revise it, and definitely top 100)

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't know how Tremors has made it this far. It's so campy. It's enjoyable in that respect, but I would never consider it a great movie.

    It's very much a product of its time - and honestly isn't that kinda the point?

    Only in the 90s would a movie like that exist lol.

    True, but I don't know. I love a really good campy movie, but I would never consider them great movies, nor the best of their era. I actually never knew so many people loved Tremors until this tournament.

    Tremors probably went a round further than it should have, but I'm not surprised. It has a pretty good following. I think it should be proud to last this long.

    Dude every single time Tremors is on TV I have to sit down and watch it.

    Conceptually the monsters are very cool, and I love the chemistry between Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward.

    Much like the academy awards, comedies just don't get the credit they deserve. Vinny is one of those movies I just can't turn off.
