About this deal

A re-issue of an upgraded re-release, the May 2003 2-disc version of A Bug’s Life actually marks the 1998 flick’s fourth DVD incarnation. Si sente che non sia la stessa cosa "buttata lì" su un nuovo supporto giusto per fare una nuova versione, miglioramenti a livello sostanziale ce ne sono e pure parecchi. I could have lived without the odd self-consciously shaky camerawork, but I liked these intros quite a lot; they conveyed necessary information in a fun way that usually would be covered by stiff text pages.

The production section contains three featurettes which cover a “Behind the Scenes” look at the movie in progress, a “Voice casting” section which shows us all of the real life cast spliced with clips from the movie (and it's really quite freaky that the actors and actresses look similar to their onscreen characters) and “Early tests” which shows sample animation clips of the ambient environment movements along with shadow and lighting tests. Finally here we have a “Progression demonstration”, an interesting section which uses the angle function (finally I've found a DVD that uses it! From the opening credits, where we see a zoomed out shot of the island of the ants detail and vivid, solid colours leapt out of the screen. Given blind side-by-side testing you would be able to spot the differences, and much will come down to listening volume and whether your room sounds quite bright, but regardless of choice, it's reference quality all the way. Consigliabile quindi sia per i più piccini, per la grandissima qualità dell'immagine, sia per i collezionisti.I won't declare that it definitely isn't him - I don't want to be embarrassed if it is - but I don't think it is.

This presents both reels of the hilarious "outtakes" from the end of the film - because of their popularity, a second version of these scenes was attached to the film three weeks after its initial release. The technical wizardry and the very tight storytelling are all part of it, but for my money the main thing is that their movies have is heart, sympathetic characters that you can empathize with. Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions. One scene from the completed picture is offered for a storyboard to film comparison; we see "Dot's Rescue” in this three-minute, 35-second clip.He's easy to relate to, and the deeper into trouble he gets the more you feel for him, especially since he has a kind heart. He compares a single seed to a mighty Oak, stating that there is greatness in even the most unlikely packages. Plus, this DVD edition has been created directly from Pixar's digital source, producing the clearest picture possible, and two viewing formats: original wide-screen and special full-frame, digitally recomposed to retain the entire image. There are a couple of things that separates Pixar films from the run-of-the-mill 'family-friendly' animated movie. After the great success they had with Toy Story, everyone was wondering if Pixar could repeat their success or if they were going to be the Hollywood equivalent to a one-hit-wonder.

Mastered directly from the digital source, the highlight for anyone who currently owns the original Region 1 edition is that this is released in anamorphic widescreen. If offers exactly what you’d expect, as we see the widescreen image on the left side of the frame and the fullscreen one on the right. Most of the time I don't much care for these, but for some reason I found this one compelling; it was interesting to see what stayed the same and what changed for the final film. These were used to make sure the film was on the right track and helped the filmmakers determine how they wanted to do things.

Outtakes contains the same material that you'll have seen on previous releases - two sets of frankly hilarious mock-outtakes and a short documentary where we find out how these came about (and the crew's favourite ones! One curious note: while Dave Foley and Joe Ranft clearly reprise their roles as Flik and Heimlich, I'm not so sure that Kevin Spacey and Denis Leary do the voices of Hopper and Francis for this piece. We take intellectual property concerns very seriously, but many of these problems can be resolved directly by the parties involved. If you’ve already done that, your item hasn’t arrived, or it’s not as described, you can report that to Etsy by opening a case.
