A Bug's Life
An epic presentation of miniature proportions.
On behalf of "oppressed bugs everywhere," an inventive ant named Flik hires a troupe of warrior bugs to defend his bustling colony from a horde of freeloading grasshoppers led by the evil-minded Hopper.
niggas cant talk shit on a Bugs Life.
After dazzling everyone with its unforgettable debut that revolutionised the entire animation industry in the long run, Pixar Animation Studios' follow-up to their highly revered Toy Story is another wonderful piece of imagination, innovation & animation that once again presents a unique take on life but this time from a bug's point of view.
The story of A Bug's Life follows a misfit ant who thinks differently yet only ends up causing more trouble for his colony so when his latest escapade wastes away all the food ants had gathered to offer to the greedy grasshoppers, he decides to make up for it by finding & recruiting tough warrior bugs to save the entire colony from its oppressors.
Directed by John Lasseter,…
Simply a damn good film.
Wife and I have hit a bit of a roadblock regarding the Disney films. The classics (Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty, Lion King, etc.) have been in wait mode in the Queue for some time now, so we figured it was time to transgress over to Pixar territory while we remain in waiting mode. Our animation re-awakening will ultimately end with the Studio Ghibli offerings.
Of course everything started with Toy Story, and yet I feel A Bug's Life is fitting choice to get the ball rolling with Pixar. It is a somewhat forgotten piece of work compared to their subsequent offerings. It doesn't necessarily have a bad reputation, but it is seen as more of a…
IM GONNA FUCK A BUG
This Disney Pixar 1998 bug infested offering gets little love and is almost completely overshadowed by the more successful Pixar roller-coaster of classics. Although it is not as worthy of the acclaim of it’s big brothers and sisters in the Pixar family it’s certainly an entertaining entry in their catalogue. It always surprises me how much I enjoy this film whenever I give it another watch. It’s a great story of a colony of ants as they struggle with oppression from a sinister hoard of grasshoppers who steal their food. The ants - led by the charismatic Flik - join forces with what he believes are a group of warrior bugs to reclaim back their freedom. It’s colourful and funny with a cast so vast there are too many quality characters to mention. There are so many wonderfully detailed characters all with equal merit and they all get the screen time they rightfully deserve. A great film.
When Kurosawa made Seven Samurai in 1954, reports indicate he envisioned a better, brighter future in which his film would be reimagined as one ant's quest to save his colony from a bullying gang of douche-bag grasshoppers. His vision, for the most part, was fulfilled. Clever one-liners, adorable ants and a grasshopper's gruesome death by devouring makes A Bug's Life lesser Pixar, but still a pretty fun film. It's purely an adventure story, not really interested in delving into the more existential, thematically interesting territory Pixar has explored since. Still though, without seeming too heavy-handed or narrow-minded, it promotes the classical American ideal of individualism and self-improvement. This is a really solid film, but I just didn't fall in love with it like I wished I had.
I'm rewatching all the animated films I enjoyed as a kid.
I fucking loved this! Destruction of hierarchy
I had not seen this in about 15 years at the very least, so it was super cool to revisit this one. It holds up great. The animation still looks awesome. It's not as impressive as their recent films, but for what is one of the first ever fully 3D animated films, it looks awesome. I heartily enjoyed this.
There was a lot of nostalgia on this one for me, but I did notice a lot of things I hadn't in prior watches (it's been many years). First and foremost is that animated movies generally have a trend of weak villains and Hopper breaks it hard. Not only is he almost definitely the greatest antagonist in a Pixar film, but ranks among the best in all of Disney animation. The rest of the movie holds up surprisingly well, it seems like the studio was still learning at this point, but the roots are strong. Overall, I think A Bug's Life is an underrated children's movie that suffers simply from not being Toy Story.
Sidenote: How horrific was Hopper's death scene? No wonder I'm afraid of birds.
Your Primary School teacher's favourite movie!
Eh. There's cool stuff in the movie regarding the society of insects and the places they live, and the characters are pretty cool. But the story is predictable and unlike Toy Story 2 or Monsters Inc, the animation does not hold up.
A Bug's Life was new and fresh, and while good on its own, never took off and I think was underappreciated for what it is.
an easy watch
Una obra menor de Pixar, abiertamente deudora de todas sus influencias, pero que aún así resulta ser una cinta entretenida. Se puede apreciar cómo Pixar flexiona su músculo narrativo, pero de la misma forma, la ausencia de una secuela da una idea de por qué no es necesario revisitar este universo: simplemente no es necesario.
I am a beautiful booterfly.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
I do not recommend a vast majority of these films. In fact, a good 80-90% of these are anywhere from…
