Saw Tremors 4 at the weekend. Didn't even know it existed till I saw it on the shelf! Now, Tremors (the original) is one of my all time favourite films, and probably the one that I've seen the most number of times. Anyone else that feels this way will certainly enjoy this, which is basically an hour and a half of in-joke (so if you haven't seen the first one, basically don't rent this on the strength of plot or writing, but if you love it, this should have you bouncing on the sofa with glee).

Also saw Constantine, which was also good, once we'd got over the dvd that kept freezing and the really indistinct sound (not sure if this was part of the 'atmosphere' or just a scratched rental disc but it was bloody annoying). It felt a lot like Simon Green's Nightside books, what with the demons and angels and weapons of power and dodgy nightclubs. Keanu Reeves (John Constantine, exorcist/investigator) might even make a good John Taylor if they ever filmed them (if he could do a convincing British accent of course - so that ain't gonna happen). All in all, very good, also starred Rachael Weisz and featured Peter Stomare as Satan (giving me one of those "what the hell was he in*" periods for the rest of the film.)

* Circus. And Minority Report, and Chocolat.
