I actually made the mistake of watching "When the Wind Blows" earlier this evening, so this actually FIXED things.

Really cool. The... um... one scene reminds me of old x-ray cinefluorography studies from the Rochester film archives.

I liked it. I want to see more of them.

I was wrong.

So long sleep.

Interesting at first.

The refined movement and fragility of these creatures is nice.

Needs a more interesting storyline.

Extremely interesting visually. No sleep will be lost on my part.

At the risk of seeming super-PC; is it...odd that the attacking spider has breasts, while the bird-thing seems male. I'm not much of a Freudian, but....
