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.
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…
IM GONNA FUCK A BUG
Nachdem ich A Bug´s Life das letzte Mal im Kino gesehen habe, muss ich sagen, dass er immer noch toll anzuschauen ist, allerdings für mich nicht das besondere Etwas anderer Pixar Filme versprüht - ohne es genau in Worte fassen zu können.
Allein für die Charaktere und deren fantastisches Design lohnt es sich jedoch ihn immer mal wieder einzuwerfen.
Early Pixar film
Shows some promise, but ends up
On a lower tier.
Francis will always be my favorite of the circus bugs because I, too, am a gruff, beautiful ladybug who has difficulties getting in touch with her feminine side.
Snow day with Sophie!
Bugs and more bugs, I hate bugs, I love this film. Everytime I get in my car I must say
yo not to sound like an Old Fart but pixar doesnt make movies like this anymore. it's about a worker's revolt and it's clearly taking inspiration from films like seven samurai (even some of the visuals! look like tiny kurosawa set pieces!!!). it's creative and anti establishment as hell i love this punk rock bug movie. it isnt as beautifully animated as later pixar movies like UP or Wall-E, but it's only cause of limitations on technology. this is just such an overlooked movie and it bums me out because a movie like this is so full of life and ideas and!! ahhhhhh it's so refreshing. love this movie. love it to death.
(plus my god-that cast! so many talented comedians and performers i have hearts in my eyes)
Good movie, good storyline, some great visuals.
One of the weaker efforts from Pixar.
Here we go again!! February always brings the academy awards and a glutton of other awards shows, but still yet…
