bugs! in 3-d

I met my friends Jessica and Toni at the Metreon tonight for a free sneak preview of Bugs!, a new 3-D Imax movie shot in the jungles of Borneo, which played to a packed house, 50% of whom were under 10 I think.

It was awesome! Tropical bugs in giant 3-D with 250,000 X magnification! It was funny, poignant and sexy just like Y Tu Mama Tambien, except with praying mantises, caterpillars and rhinoceros beatles. In 3-D. No, seriously.

I think my favorite shot was a tiny ant climbing into a droplet of water to take a drink.

Anyhow, you should see it if you can.
