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.

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.
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.
Seven samurai, but with bugs.
Based on Aesop's The Ant and the Caterpillar.
This is a cute movie and at the same time a little boring. Even the kids, my godchildren, were bored throughout the film. What really captured us all was the score, it is the best part of this film. It is good for all ages, has the normal lessons that are taught. Would I recommend this film, if you want to see the score in context, absolutely. Otherwise I am on the fence. Was not entertained.
It was alright. I can't remember it super well, but it's one of those that I watched a few times when I'd stop of a channel playing it.
Still one of the funniest movies I've ever seen
Another Pixar winner
A perfectly competent and above average ode to Seven Samurai and Three Amigos. Pixar has since overshadowed what, even then, seemed like a minor entry, the backgrounds are sparse, the character work a little plain, and the voice work impressive, if anonymous.
The plot is simple and effective (if it aint broke) and Hopper in particular is dark and excellently conceived. The pacing is nice and although this ground has been tread a lot since, it's still charming, if a little slight.
If Pixar only made one movie, this one would be a tremendous undertaking, it just so happens that through sheer consistent quality and outstanding storymanship, this is one of their worst. And it's still knocks the bells out of almost all Dreamworks.
A Bug's Life is Pixar's second film. It is the first Pixar film I saw in theatres. Back in '98 there was this movie and a very similar one called Antz. I preferred the latter, as I found it a better movie and I love Woody Allen.
Cut to almost 20 years later and I watched A Bug's Life again for perhaps the third or fourth time. I still really enjoy the flick (pun intended) but I still think Antz is better. The last time I saw Antz: In the theatre. Maybe if I watch it again I will find this one better?
When not comparing the two I will say that this movie is beautiful to look at, it's…
no joke, that scene about going around the leaf is one of the greatest and most valuable life lessons a pixar film has ever taught me
Complete list. :-(
