group-shotPre-screening memoriesI love, love, loved Tremors as a little kid. It had everything a girl could want in a movie: big monsters eating people and then people turning the tides and blowing up the monsters. Awesome! It did scare me just a tiny bit… enough that if I had to go outside I would make sure to run to the destination and get off the ground as soon as I could. I didn’t reallybelieve that Graboids existed but I wasn’t going to take any chances… y’know, just in case.graboid

New Memories: Tremorsholds up very well over time. Partly because they didn’t use all that CGI back then and partly because the acting is all so good. I mean, I really believe all the actors in this film. There is not one person who you think, “Hmm, that person’s not so great.” Even the kids who populate Perfection are good. And, since the Graboids were man-made and not CGI, they look great even today, and not cheesy or outdated. So, after watching Tremors again, I still love this movie. This is hands-down my favorite movie to watch over and over and over again.kevin-and-fred

(Ed. note: We would like to welcome Action Flick Chick to the podcast and look forward to future contributions from this intrepid blogger as she recalls films that made her the action-lovin’ gal she is today.)

charlotteOur featured guest: Charlotte Stewart

During the course of the Tremorsfilm trilogy, Charlotte went from mousy mommy to a Graboid-killin’ machine who saves the day. Charlotte’s career also mirrored this spectrum, playing the schoolmarm Ms. Beadle on Little House on the Prairie for five years while also playing mother to a mutated, reptilian-like “skinned goat” in the cult classic David Lynch film, Eraserhead.

She would again work with the director in his series  Twin Peaks and continued to act in both film and television.

Charlotte also hung with such musical icons as Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Jim Morrison back in the day. Does she hide some heretofore unexplored musical talent? You’ll just have to hear the podcast to find out…

It may be under construction right now, but you can check out some exciting things at Charlotte’s site, LiquidButterfly.com, where she will features some of her own fashionable creations (with proceeds going to fight breast cancer).

Thank you,Charlotte, from the gang here at Natsukashi, for heading back to Perfection with us for gabbin’ about Graboids.
