A Bug's Life (1998)

Rating: ***
Release Date: 11/25/98
Director: John Lasseter
Music: Randy Newman

Shown with a dark and depressing Pixar short called "Geri's Game."

Another superbly animated feature from Pixar about an ant hill that is threatened by some bullying grasshoppers, and an independent ant named Flik who makes a mess of everything and hires a bunch of circus bugs to fight off the grasshopper menace. Basically a remake of "The Three Amigos" (1986). None of the ant stuff is very interesting, but the supporting characters in the travelling circus are wonderful. A fantastic feast for the eyes.
