I’ve always hated A Bug’s Life. When I say that, people agree that it’s the least of all the Pixar movies. That’s not what I’m saying. It’s not just a lesser Pixar movie. It’s a terrible movie. I f***ing hate it.

On Blu-Ray: A Bug's Life


Flick is a horrible protagonist. He wants to be different and great but he’s not. His inventions suck. They don’t work and they certainly don’t improve things. You don’t get to be something just because you want to be. You have to deliver.

Then, he brings back these circus bugs that just happen to help him come up with a fantastic idea that’s going to save the whole colony. Only after they invent the mechanical bird does it come out that they were circus bugs. Then everyone’s pissed they were misled, but it’s too late to feel that way. They’ve already helped you, so who cares where they come from.



Worst of all, it’s just not funny. There’s no clever perspective about the bug world within our own. Only the Bug City montage has any clever humor. It’s just a purely mechanical story cranked out to showcase CGI.

However, the Blu Ray looks fantastic. You can see all the detail put into the bugs’ scaly, divotted, nicked up bodies. The settings are full of minute detail creating a wildlife that’s much more nuanced than what we really see outside. The colors are super HD vibrant looking beautiful on your HDTV. The movie still blows but it looks really good.
