    First off, I loved parts 1 and 2, and when I saw this one for rent at my local dvd retailer, I rented it, and really enjoyed it.
    Granted not the best CGI work in the world but I like the movies spirit, and besides Michael Gross kicks Graboid ass! What can I say, i'm a sucker for these movies, they don't mean any harm and they're alot of fun, especially the original.
    To those that have also seen 'Tremors 3', did'nt the guy who played Jack, at times, look and sound just like Brad Pitt?!

    Yep, I really enjoy all three Tremors movie. The CGI graboid wasn't real convincing in Tremors 3, but it was still great fun.

    I thought Tremors 3 was one of the worst movies I have seen all year. The first was great, the second wasn't as good but still a good flick. 3 was just awful. Everything that was established about the creatures was just thrown out the window for this one. Bad just bad.

    I loved Tremors and Tremors 2: Aftershocks, but in all honesty what the fuck wen't wrong? I thought Tremors 3: Return to Perfection was just horrid. It was nice to see characters from Tremors to return, but Michael Gross can't carry a Tremors film on his own at all and the new characters added were annoying and I was hoping one of those flying graboids would've just lighted them on fire with their ass rockets or whatever they were called. A real dissapoitment after I was expecting to love this (just like the previous two films).
    The graboids have been underground, on ground, and now in the air. What's next for the graboids Tremors 4? All of the Perfection population (all 9 of them) go to Lake Mead and the graboids can somehow swim? [​IMG]

    Matthew,
    Don't you remember hearing that the original idea for Tremors 3 was suppose to take place under water.
    The grabnoids were suppose to swim.

    I'm not sure I understand the criticisms of the shriekers turning into ass blasters. These creatures change. In the first, they got smarter. In the second, they turn into shriekers. I don't see how the presence of ass blasters throws the whole concept out the window. Actually, I think the whole thing was rather well done. I'll even let 'em do the swimming graboids next time - maybe we'll get to see Burt with swim fins and spear guns [​IMG]
    Tremors 3 won't win any Oscars, but it's far from being horrid. It kept a smile on my face and I'll take any chance to watch Burt be Burt.

    Thank you for the defense Julie. [​IMG]
    How can anyone not like a movie that has the balls to name their creatures 'Ass Blasters'!
