Need more Dune in your life? A ridiculous ‘90s sci-fi movie is perfect for you | Inverse

“How many degrees of separation exist between Kevin Bacon and Dune? One, because Bacon co-stars with several sandworms in the 1990 film Tremors. They may go by Graboids, but let’s call it like it is. These are out-of-work sandworms who, between Dunes in 1984 and 2000, got some work as movie monsters for hire. Tremors should have been a franchise vehicle that catapulted the sandworms of Arrakis into super-stardom. Instead, the poor wigglers had to play second fiddle to Bacon.”

Why you should watch Black Mirror season 6 in reverse order | Den of Greek

“The first and simplest reason for watching this season in reverse order is a very straightforward one — that is the order in which it was written, as Charlie Brooker told us. This means there are little Easter eggs spread throughout the season that only make sense if you watch the episodes in reverse.”
