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…
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.
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.
It's been a few years since I last saw Pixar's second full length feature, but given how disappointing this rewatch was, I probably should have held off from seeing this for longer.
Maybe the endless comparisons between this and DreamWorks' Antz was a nice way of saying that this doesn't stand well as its own film. For all the solid animation and funny characters, the story is surprisingly unremarkable. Its depiction of lower-class rebellion is no different from tons of other stories, and many of the characters' arcs, especially Flik's, tend to be very generic. And unlike something like Toy Story, the abundant story conventions only function to move the plot along, instead of giving any unique perspective to how…
Aunque la ví en su día, no la había revisionado nunca y apenas recordaba nada. Ni la recordaba tan entretenida, ni recordaba que tuviese ese cierto calado político detrás (así a lo tonto es de lo más marxista que se puede dar en Hollywood, tú XD).
No, en serio, un revisionado que tenía pendiente y una grata sorpresa.
How can Julia Louis-Dreyfus be president when she's already a princess of the Ant Hill?
Seriously though, this might be the most conventional of Pixar's movies. It feels very dated, in no small part because the CG looks plastic. More so, it doesn't have the esthetic that came with later movies. You could tell me that this was a movie released by any of the other big animation houses at the time and I would believe you.
It's like 1984 but for bugs, no creativity is allowed and everyone must serve the government blindly
An enjoyable animated movie by the Pixar studio.
An ant named Flik (Dave Foley) ruins what all the ants have collected for the grashoppers led by Hopper (Kevin Spacey), who threatens to kill them all. So he now has to find a way to stop the grasshoppers. Soon he meets a group of circus bugs who help him.
So this movie was lots of fun. It was the first hard movie for Pixar, with all the hard things in it, many different locations and so many characters. And they did a great job.
The characters were great, especially the circus bugs, featuring everyones favorite, Heimlich (Joe Ranft). And they were all voiced greatly. Special mention to Hayden Panettiere for her…
Well that's the cutest way to die for a villain.
Not one of Pixar's best...

It's so strange how nostalgic I am about A Bug's Life...yet at the same time, not at all.
You see, my memory is weirdly selective when it comes to seeing this film in the theater. I exactly remember who I saw this with (my grandpa and my two cousins), I remember in which theater I saw it in - I even remember in which auditorium - I remember going to McDonalds afterwards and there being A Bug's Life toys in the Happy Meal, I have fond memories of playing the PlayStation game on my PS2 (which must've been 2 years after seeing the film, but still)...I can't remember pretty much anything from the film when I saw it in the…
A misfit in his ant colony, Flik (Dave Foley) sets out to recruit warriors to help in their defence against marauding Grasshoppers led by Hopper (Kevin Spacey). He inadvertently brings back a circus troupe who believe they have been booked for dinner theatre.
This was only Pixar's second feature and, following the stunning success of 'Toy Story', expectations and pressure were extraordinarily high. And it just about pulls it off. State of the art CGI is a given for all of Pixar and its true here with astonishing rendering throughout and particularly the rainstorm near the end. This was 17 years ago and it's still better than some animation you see today.
This film also introduced the 'out takes' in…
My mom hates this movie because I used to watch this on VHS every single day as a child.
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
