5.0 out of 5 stars What DVD should be, January 16, 2000
This review is from: A Bug's Life (Collector's Edition) (DVD)
Sure, this special edition is somewhat expensive, but it is worth every penny, and then some. Not only do you get a terrific presentation of a terrific film(with three alternate audio tracks, no less), but you also get a second disc filled with so many supplements, that it's difficult to think of what more you could want. Even though this disc is distributed by Disney, the DVD, like the film itself, is all Pixar. To go along with all the supplemental material, John Lasseter, co-director Andrew Stanton, and others appear in several introductory segments to explain the background and significance of what you're about to see. They're all obviously having a blast doing this, and add immesurably to the presentation of the content. Go ahead and look for short comings on this disc, but you won't find any. As for the film itself, it's obvious that Pixar has reached near-perfection in creating crowd-pleasing entertainment. With this and the "Toy Story" films they have a perfect record, and one can only hope that they keep it up. To those that say "Antz" is superior, I say that it takes more than a few mild expletives and an obvious "I'm going to do what I want to do" message to make a better film. Clearly Dreamworks wanted their film out first, which is obvious in the inferior visual look and the not-always-appropriate voice-casting of their product. The only complaint with "A Bug's Life" that I have is that the film didn't have some kind of dedication message to Roddy McDowall, who voiced Mr. Soil. I know that his part was small, but I was hoping that the audience would be reminded of the loss of a great actor. That being said, this film is one of the most enjoyable that you're likely to find, and should be owned in its collector's edition glory.
