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…
A solid follow up to Toy Story, A Bug's Life is a fun hero's journey filled with colorful character that I forgot how fun they were to see. It's cute and funny that you'd want circus bug to be. Heimlich (Joe Ranft), Slim (David Hyde Pierce) and Francis (Dennis Leary) still made me laugh and for sure deserved a spin off movie.
While the story and atmosphere hold up, the animation looks cheap and dated especially all the backgrounds. It doesn't have the refined intricate look we expect from animated movies now, but hey, I still prefer hand drawn.
Compared to Pixar's debut, A Bug's Life is a more predictable and formulaic romp. (it is essentially a straightforward retelling of Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, after all)
What it lacks in substance, though, it absolutely makes up in style. Although mere 3 years had passed since Toy Story, A Bug's Life displays such a miraculous leap in technical department. Who would've thought that the microscopic world of bugs could be so bustling ang vibrant? Every character, major or otherwise, is given distinctive features and traits that make watching them bounce off of each other an instant pleasure. Kudos to Lasseter and co. for acknowledging the apparent shakiness in the film's story and deciding to bolster it with memorable characters and various displays of technical triumph.
A fantastic tale about standing up for yourself, protecting your family and being brave when everyone else doubts you. Filled with an incredibly unique and exciting cast of great character.
"A Bug's Life" holds up incredibly well with its great humor, gripping story and lovable characters.
Flik (Dave Foley) is an inventive ant who's always messing things up for his colony. His latest mishap was destroying the food stores that were supposed to be used to pay off grasshopper Hopper (Kevin Spacey). Now the strong-arming insect is demanding that the ants gather double the food -- or face annihilation. To avert disaster, Flik goes on a journey to recruit fighters to defend the colony. When he meets a band of high-flying circus insects, he thinks he's found his salvation.
One of those borring ,kids,stupid imaginary movie for babys...it sucks in every sense.
Continuing the Pixar marathon with a Bug's Life.
Flik is a bug who everyone hates and after he looses the entire food supply. The grasshoppers threaten them to fill them with food. Flik chooses to find warriors. He finds a group of misfits and chooses them as warriors. Realizing they're circus bug Flik tries to hide them.
When I was kid I didn't really care for A Bug's Life. Sure it is not as memorable as Toy Story but it is a very good movie. The characters are likable but no like the ones in Toy Story. Still A Bug's Life is a really good which you should check out.
An early and likable enough effort from Pixar that has largely been forgotten.
I'd seen A Bug's Life a bunch of times as a kid, but it's probably been about a decade since I last watched it. I have very fond memories of this film so it was hard to understand why people seem to deem this as a second rate Pixar movie.
Now that I've finally gotten around to watching it again, I understand it. A Bug's Life is a pretty basic film with no major concepts or ideas about this film. There aren't many layers beyond 'sentient insects have to find a solution to problem'. The whole film is a lot more geared towards being a children's film than simply an animated film, with plenty of silly humour and little subtlety…
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.
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
