    some of it is cool.. it gets a little silly though.. saw the trailer in theatres last night infront of 13 ghost and at first the audience was really into it..but when the bugs got bigger and start attacking.. it was recieving boos.
    I kind of iffy about this one...

    As long as they keep the humor at a high level, this could be fun. But if they don't stress the humor, then we may be looking at another Bats.

    Well, it has been awhile since we've seen on of those over-grown, mutated insect/spider films. Nothing wrong with making a "silly" movie now and again, but if it falls prey to current Hollywood themes, i.e. that every film is some serious testament, no matter how lame, then this film will be nothing more than self-important tripe.

    I think this will be really cool if they use an "Evolution" type take on it.

    I saw this ahead of 13 Ghosts and my audience was really into it. I thought it had a bit of 'Tremors' flavor in it. There's absolutely nothing wrong with giant silly man-eating creatures, as long as it's done right.

    Does every movie have o be serious? Not every movie is Citizen Kane, nor are some intended to be. I'm intrigued. It could turn out to be bad, but it looks like a lot of fun.

    Give me a bug movie anyday.
    I love 'em
    Now, if they would do a movie with giant Army Ants,I'd be happy. Those are some of the most fierce creatures on this planet. Nothing gets in their way.

    Two words: David. Arquette. Besides that, this could be pretty fun.
