i need to see this again
8 December 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this when it came out, and I remember that I was mightily impressed with both the cinematography and the science. Alas, this film had a misleading marketing campaign that made it sound like it was not a bug movie, but a bug-eyed monster movie. The theater was packed with people expecting the latter, and you can imagine the noise level. (Why don't such people just go home?)
