"The most important thing is not how you spend your money, but how you spend your life!"

A memorable quote from the monster movie, 'Tremors 4: The Legend Begins', starring Michael Cross. I had watched it for the first time last night on StarHub cable television.

It's actually the fourth instalment of the cult movie series, starting from the early nineties, but this one is set as a prequel to the earlier three.

I have enjoyed watching all the four instalments, especially the depiction of man's ingenuity & creativity in dealing with hostile elements under the most dicey circumstances.

In a nut shell, the story generally centred on how a ragtag group of people living in a small isolated desert town rallied together to fight against a bunch of strange but intelligent underground carnivorous creatures known as "graboids" [now I know they were originally known as "dirt dragons" in the prequel].

The giant creatures didn't have eyes, though they had big mouths, filled with retractable blood-thirsty tentacles, & often tracked their prey via sound vibrations on the ground.

They were reminiscent of the giant worms in the sci-fi adventure movie, 'Dune', during the mid-eighties.

Michael Cross is the only actor who has appeared in all four movies.
