For this movie i took into account that it was 1954 near the height of nuclear paranoia but this movie doesn’t actually need any help to be good, it just is.

It opens beautifully, the little girl is so cute and such a great actress. I was also impressed with the accuracy of the science in the movie. Fantastic Freddy claws considering it is a giant bug movie. It was even funny in places. It manages to be relevant and politically charged.

We found it to be original, realistic and had a good cast. Tara really enjoyed it with a score of 78 out 100 and I loved it with a score of 86 out of a possible 100. Watch it or more appropriately, watch THEM!

1. If I could manage it, I'd love to learn a new language. 2. My favorite piece of clothing is my Philadelphia Eagles tee shirt. 3. The fictional place I'd most like to go to is the Starship Voyager so I could explore space. 4. I once spent exactly 6 hours (no more, no less) working at a Burger King. 5. If making people laugh were a sport, I'd win the gold every time. 6. My favorite drink is Yoo-Hoo. 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is Wonder. I loved the book, too. 8. My favorite bands are the Beach Boys and The Monkees. I've even seen The Monkees in concert. 9. Danny Trejo is my idol. He's overcome so much and he's super nice in person. 10. The most heartwarming thing I've ever seen is this old couple in the doctor's office. They were poking each other playfully and their love just filled the room.
