Let's talk sequels! The 80s and 90s gave birth to an innumerable amount of sequels that rank from "who would pay to see this" to "why did I pay to see this" but luckily we live in the streaming era now and we can enjoy shitty movies without spending a dime. Of course, not all of these sequels are a complete train wrecks and that's where Tremors 2: Aftershocks(1996) comes in. This movie has everything: explosions, jeans, Mexico, and hermaphrodite dinosaurs. Years after Kevin Bacon and friends faced off against giant man-eating worms in the the town of Paradise, the Mexican army hires a ragtag group of Americans, including Earl Bassett and Burt Gummer from the first movie, to take care of their own man-eating worm problem. As the movie progresses you find out that the worms were actually pregnant with a bunch of Kevin Hart sized dinosaurs that are also hermaphrodites. But just when things are at their bleakest, the good guys win by blowing a Rhode Island sized hole in what was previously a Mexican oil refinery filled with candy and dinosaurs. Oh and Earl hits it off with an ex-playmate geologist because why not. Overall, the plot made like no sense but it was a good excuse to watch a bunch of rednecks blow up some dinosaurs. I would give it a 5/10 but because the main character rocks a Canadian Tuxedo for basically the entire movie, I'm gonna have to bump it up to a 6.5/10. Definitely worth the watch, catch Tremors 2 on Netflix now.
