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.
A really underrated Pixar film. Felt great to relive one of my childhood favorites. It has a solid story that feels a bit elongated at times, but overall is very entertaining. The voice cast is great and the animation looks amazing on this blu-ray copy. It's been such a long time since I've seen this and it really felt great to watch it.
I find it amazing that out of all the Seven Samurai remakes I've seen (this, Magnificent Seven, Dirty Dozen, etc) I've never actually seen the original Seven Samurai. If Seven Samurai is as outstanding as those remakes, I cannot wait to see it.
Ever since I was a kid, I have absolutely loved this film and I probably always will.
A Bug's Life is consistently entertaining, even if it's probably Pixar's most ignored film. The voice cast is great in their roles and the visuals showcase vibrant colors throughout, it's beautifully animated. Much of the humor is juvenile and the climax runs on too long for its own good, but the film is perfectly enjoyable. However, unlike many other Pixar movies, I feel that kids will probably like this more than adults.
I saw this movie this at the 'Price Charles Cinemas' Pixar All Nighter with Letterboxd user James Haves
Movie 2 of the evening. Yep, after unleashing my inner child watching Toy Story, I was quite looking forward to watching 'A Bugs Life' as this is a Pixar movie that I hadn't seen before. I thought
"Hey its Pixar, odds are it will be a great movie. Plus I have others around me saying what an awesome movie it is"
Boy was I wrong. This movie was predictable from the get go. From the awful foreshadowing, to the crappy character development, 'A Bugs Life' for me really didn't live up to the hype others gave it.
After the critically and commercially successful ‘Toy Story’, also the film that proved high quality animations can be produced through computer imagery and at full film runtime, Pixar produced a second animated feature that not only raised the scope, the scale and storyline of the first but also their stand in the world of animation production. This film was ‘A Bugs Life’ and was released into direct competition with Dreamworks ‘Antz’ - a movie dealing with the same environment. However, through creating a much better result in the finished article, Pixar was able to distance themselves from what would lead to be their ultimate competitors.
Set in the undergrowth, ‘A Bugs Life’ centers on a colony of harvest ants who…
A delightful look into totalitarianism and conformity.
This is a Seven Samurai remake? Huh, I guess that makes sense.
A Bug's Life is frustrating because the basic plot has been recycled to death and I've never been a big fan of the "Liar Revealed" thing. But the jokes and character designs are so creative and funny (and surprisingly adult, in retrospect, though nothing like that other ant movie that came out the same year...) and they really pull off the drama in the climax. Something about the bruised-and-beaten Flik standing up to Hopper manages to ring truer than most incarnations of this story I've seen.
And did I mention the animation is fucking awesome? Like, Toy Story's animation holds up, but the lighting and movement seen here…
A Bug's Life may not have aged well, but as Pixar's second ever feature there is a lot to love. My adoration for it may slightly skewed by nostalgia and other pixar offerings may offer much more in terms of originality, storyline and characters, but A Bug's Life can still hold it's own as a decent piece of family entertainment.
An endearing adaptation of the Seven Samurai/Magnificent Seven plot, in which all of our heroes are nerdily incompetent!
Kinda boring and not as fun to look at, even the first Toy Story looks better!
After Pixars success with the fantastic Toy Story, they turn their attention to talking bugs.
This is quite possibly my second viewing of this film, first being back in 1998 when it came out in the theatres. Following Toy Story seemed like no easy task, and although many fell for this film as much as their first direction this viewing has left me with the same feeling I've had all these years, dissapointed.
Sure it still has a solid story, loveable characters and some good acting voice overs but it just never really took my fancy. I honestly can't put my finger on why (to me) this is one of Pixars weakest other than the fact I didn't get the same enjoyment I got out of Toy Story, Finding Nemo or The Incredibles.
It's a shame my opinion hasn't changed after all this time.
Muuuuito show de bola. Ri muito.
Disappointing considering its predecessor. In fact, disappointing just on its own merits. A weak, predictable story hinging on actions that make no sense, a fairly one-dimensional villain with no arc or redeemable features at all, and totally boring a clichéd protagonist.
It made me laugh sporadically and the animation is nice, but still, one of Pixar's worst.
