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.
This seems to be left out when people are discussing Pixar's best films which is ridiculous. This showcases everything that made them great, while it's not my favorite it's a fantastic film. A mess-up ant is sent on a mission to hire ruthless bugs to defend his colony from grasshoppers and he mistakes a bunch of outcast circus bugs for soldiers.
This is definitely one of the more ambitious Pixar films, it has a big scope with hundreds of moving ants on screen at various times. But the fact that such an early project is so ambitious you can really see the technical setbacks and some of the animation looks bland or clumsy which is very strange for Pixar. Even…
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.
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…
Alternate title - When Society Overthrows the Establishment : All Hail Pixar.
The leap in the animation aspect from Toy Story to A Bug's Life is quite amazing. Gone are some clunky or awkward look and movement. Everything is detailed, smooth, and beautiful, which must be quite a challenge since they had to animate the nature in close-up. From the underground ant cave, to the cracked earth that separates the island from other places, to the potentially fatal rain, the movie never fails to be pleasing to the eyes.
Well, that's most of the positives I had for the picture. Even as a kid, I've never really warmed up to A Bug's Life, and this watch nails the reasons why. The movie is very plot-oriented, intending on moving from one set-piece and…
Homenaje al cine de Kurosawa en clave de animación. En mi opinión un precoz patinazo de Pixar que gracias al target infantil de Disney funcionó bien en taquilla.
A Bug's Life es entretenida y está bien conseguida, pero alejándose mucho del nivel de las demás obras de Pixar Studios.
As great as I remembered. I'm really not sure why this film isn't remembered as much as the other Pixar films. Maybe it was just too early. It was always a standout to me. Really no flaws. It's so clever. And the story keeps building on itself, like how he mistakes them for warriors and they mistake him for a talent agent, and then how the thing that makes the circus bugs want to help is that the ants applause for them (and applause is the thing they long for). Just delightful and inspiring. The beginning is a lesson in setting up your story and the rules of your world. Just amazing.
It's also quite hilarious throughout. And it's interesting…
This film is not how I remember it as a kid.
It feels so lifeless watching it now and for me it lacks the charm that I love in stuff like Tangled and the Toy Story films.
Pre-pretentiousness Pixar. Lovely.
On watching it again, I didn't think much of it.
Tremendous voice acting. Such an inspired story. Legit funny. Among the best Pixar efforts.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
In their second feature film after Toy Story, Pixar moves underground to show us the world through the eyes of bugs & insects hits a second home-run of success. People don't really refer to this as one of Pixar's best but in my opinion, A Bug's Life is, arguably, their most underrated film. It's a brilliant piece of imagination, innovation & animation that in spite of being full of huge number of characters never lets its viewers feel lost & delivers its message of strength in unity very clearly. It might be a little low on its plot strength but makes up for that with its brilliant use of humour, limitless imagination & standard setting computer animation. Overall, A Bug's Life is a little insight into the way people at Pixar work, imagine, create & entertain the world without compromising either art or quality of animation.
