It's always nice to see this film again.

Seen modern films with the same theme. Todays microscopes and telescopes are a little more powerfull. But it is still a good movie and our knowledge about subatomic strictures have not vastly improved sines this film was made.
Check out my Creatures.

That's great, haven't seen it before. Had to watch without the sound 'cos I'm at work, but still looks good.

That's how I found it as well ;) Hence why I figured it to be appropriate to post here.

Most of it would be one big explosion or dust cloud.

Indeed, yet we all remained mysteriously unharmed after watching it...

Our obsession for Spore must've somehow protected us.
