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.
Whenever anyone told me that "A Bug's Life" was 'definitely a lesser Pixar film'... I told them they were crazy. For as long as I can remember, "A Bug's Life" was probably my favorite Pixar film.
Yeah. It's true.
I re-watched it last night for the first time in 15 years probably... the first time since I was that little kid that LOVED this movie, and I hate to say it but I'm sorry that I did.
Because while I remembered exactly why I loved this film as a little guy, I couldn't feel that same love today, watching it as an adult/young man.
I seriously can't even begin to explain how sad I am now, haha, because the thing…
tks for the lessions <3
i couldn't have told you anything that happened before i rewatched it, but the nasty spines down hoppers' legs, the panic inside the flaming bird, and the grasshoppers drowned in grain hit me like war flashbacks. even more so, remembered from a VHS tape. it's like the first time i saw these things they had "flashback" filters on top.
something i never appreciated as a child: the fire-lit scenes in the chaos after the bird crashes down are truly stirring. some of the other lighting and textures don't quite hold up, but this whole scene looked incredible.
This film has spectacular animation, a wonderful story with lots of humor and grand adventure, a great cast, memorable characters and Kevin Spacey is amazing as perhaps Pixar's most menacing villain.
I was sure that I have seen this movie before but while I watching couldn't remember anything. So maybe when I was younger I might have seen few scenes on tv.
But anyway, the movie isn't my favourite or the best of Pixar but I still enjoy it, it has some nice and funny moments and if you want to feel good this movie will be ok.... Also *maybe it will be SPOILER* that scene when the bird gives Hopper to her kids to eat him was quite scary, it really was.
A small start for Pixar. It's a neat, amiable story not without wit but having nothing of the imagination, richness or depth of later offerings. Which is fair enough, but I can't see this one being as rewarding on repeat viewings as the rest of Pixar's output.
Francis the ladybug is a genderqueer feminist ok I will fight you on this

Antz is better but this is still really cute.
A Bug's Life is a really satisfying follow-up to Pixar's Toy Story, luxuriating in similar unseen-world details and emotional beats associated with discovering your place (there is a standing ovation near the end of a character, which only works in this case as an emotional beat). A Bug's Life also features some show-y filmmaking techniques for the first time, playing with focus in the final sequence, and allows for a strong character moment for an otherwise distressed damsel.
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
