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,…
IM GONNA FUCK A BUG
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…

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.
Though it's kinda cliched and annoying at times. I think that Hopper is the best Pixar villian of all time

Watching this was a red-letter day for me, as I remember being a toddler watching it on our shag living room floor looking up at the TV. In the middle of the film I began wondering how the images were changing - the cuts. How was it able to cut? What's between the cuts? Is it a split second of nothingness? Do the characters know about the cuts? Quite a bit of existential film theory stuff for a 5 year old. Triggered by A Bug's Life.
I guess it only makes sense that I'm know an aspiring film editor.
i should probably not review movies I saw more than 10 yrs ago.
Having just rewatched this I can happily re-confirm my score. Hilarious, brilliant world building and slim is still one of my favourite pixar characters. Kevin Spacey and the grasshoppers in general provide the best pixar baddies to date (with only lotso and Randal really completing). As a young child this was one of my favourite animations nearly 15 years later it still is. Pixar are gods
"From way up here, you all look like little ants!"
Time heals all wounds, but the rift between Jeffrey Katzenberg and Disney may not apply. When Katzenberg, former chairman of Disney’s film division, left Disney after a bitter feud with CEO Michael Eisner, he formed DreamWorks with Steven Spielberg and David Geffen and soon began plotting his battle in animation with his former employer. So while Disney began working with Pixar on A Bug’s Life, he started working on Antz. And the great cinema battle of 1998 began. And while time may never heal the rift between Katzenberg and Disney, it certainly has shown us that Pixar knows how to make strong films and with their second film, they proved…

I really feel this one has aged very well for me. I like it more each time I watch it, and that's going in already a fan. Such great stuff.
For some reason humans actually think that their opinions on movies about animals, their experiences, and their relationships with other…
