@CC: Your friend is totally right!  I was so impressed when I left the theatres.  And the amount of thought that went into planting clues all over the movie was simply astounding.  Overall one of the best films I'd seen in a long time.

As to the "order out of chaos" bit, I just pulled out my DVD, and the insects are actually flies.    :D

I just watched Prince of Persia. I haven't played any of the games but I thought the movie was pretty good.

I watched Densha Otoko yesterday.

It's purportedly a true story of a guy who met a girl on a train, and asks 2ch users for dating advice and stuff. A really funny movie.

I rather liked I Am Legend.  It shares common themes with Frankenstein (the BOOK, not the butchered crap Hollywood made).

Tell me...is there any disaster movie that is just the story of a person or group of people trying to escape with their lives?

minus the junk love story, insane stereotypes, and junk CGI? (good CGI is accepted)

I just got done watching a epic movie.  Its called The Place Promised in Our Early Days.  To quote from Wiki as to explain the movie:

Quote from: Wikipedia
The Place Promised in Our Early Days takes place in Japan during the late 1990s in an alternate timeline. Though it is not directly explained in the film, the world in the anime apparently diverges from Japan's in the decades following World War II. In 1974, Japan underwent the Separation: the southern part, including the main islands of Honshū and Kyūshū, were occupied by the United States, while the northern island, Hokkaidō (or Ezo, as it is called in the anime), was occupied by the "Union" (presumably referring to the Soviet Union). Also in that same year, the Union began the construction of a strange tower on Hokkaido designed by a scientist named Ekusun Tsukinoe. On a clear day, the incredible height of the tower makes it visible from as far away as Tokyo.

By the 1990s when the story begins, the U.S. occupation of southern Japan has ended, and the two nations have formed a pact called the Alliance. Hokkaido remains under the control of the Union; contact between the North and the South is all but suspended; and border clashes are common. An underground group committed to reunifying Japan known as the Uilta Liberation Front exists in the South. Covertly supported by some Alliance government officials, it makes incursions into and executes attacks on Union territory.

The anime follows the story of three friends living in Aomori on the northern end of southern Japan: two boys, Hiroki Fujisawa and Takuya Shirakawa, both child prodigies; and one girl, Sayuri Sawatari. In 1996, the three are in eighth grade, their last year of middle school, and they are fascinated by the Hokkaido Tower visible across the Tsugaru Strait to the north.

There is a lot more to the movie then simply that (but anything more would be spoilers).  It was rather moving.
