Unfortunately, this film operates on the principle that the bigger you make something, the more interesting it will be. This is sick and wrong.
I'm not going to try and bore you by writing a comprehensive diatribe about an insect documentary. However, I am about tow rite something that may sound, to some, complimentary -- so don't misinterpret me, get all excited and wet yourself.
"Microcosmos" is the kind of movie you wish they showed in elementary school science class. Instead of featuring some encyclopedia salesman explaining the intricacies of Bunsen burners, this film focuses on the science itself -- in this case, bugs.
Unfortunately, this film operates on the principle that the bigger you make something, the more interesting it will be. This is sick and wrong. Take the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as an example. Nobody ever intended a Smurf to be five stories tall. Like "Microcosmos," that crap is just kind of freaky.
