Movie: Three and a half stars out of four

Discs: Four stars out of four

Of the 10 Pixar features, "A Bug's Life" and "Cars" were the only two that didn't receive universal critical praise; yet both are better than 90 percent of their competition. Absolutely trouncing the similarly themed and more artsy "Antz" at the box-office a decade ago, "A Bug's Life" has aged well and the painstakingly detailed Blu-ray overhaul gives it new life and dimension. Children not yet born when it first came out will love it and almost certainly demand repeat viewings.
