Well, chalk this one up on the list of things we never expected to hear today. After trying to make a TV breakthrough over a decade ago on channel formerly known as Sci-Fi, cult classic Tremors is heading to TV once more: but this time, it’ll wield the unstoppable star power of Kevin Bacon himself.
In theory, every actor and actress in the planet could be connected to Kevin Bacon in six steps or less. And in theory, according to Hungarian physicist Albert-László Barabási, every random web page can be accessed from any other random page by clicking just 19 times or less.

Reports are swirling that Kevin Bacon, the affable center of the Hollywood universe, is in talks to play a baddie in X-Men: First Class. But which enemy of the X-Men will Bacon portray? We have some ideas.
Memo to David Goyer: When you finally make your long-awaited Invisible Man movie, you have to top 2000's Hollow Man in the inventive use of spattered blood to make the guy visible. Come on!
What lies beyond death? A really cheesy acid trip, according to 1990's Flatliners. In many ways, Flatliners is a percursor of much better films like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (complete with the medical procedure, and the delving into the characters' pasts.)

Must-see movies are futuristic classics that shouldn't be missed. Of course, not every must-see is perfect. That's why we've rated them 1-5 on the patented "crunchy goodness" scale. Written by James Rocchi.
