Of its time...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microcosmos - Special Edition [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
Im afraid that this film, which was doubtless brilliant in 1996, was, well... brilliant in 1996.
Its a not bad little documentary/movie of bugs and things on a very small scale.
Unfortunately the past 15 years have seen many newer, better filmed and more detailed arrivals.
The 'Life' series for example trumps this on visuals, length, coverage and informativeness.
What really wasnt my thing on Microcosmos, was the music, all these creatures doing amazing things, and no explanations as to how or why, just background music... may suit some, not for me.
If I had reviewed on release, it probably would have been a 4/5 but try something more up to date.
