A Bug's Life is a computer animated film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures and Buena Vista Distribution in the United States on November 25, 1998, in Australia on January 12, 1999 and in the United Kingdom on 5 February 1999. It's also the second Disney / Pixar feature film. It tells the tale of an oddball individualist ant who hires what he thinks are "warrior bugs" (actually circus performers) to fight off greedy grasshoppers. The film was directed by John Lasseter .
The story of A Bug's Life is a parody of Aesop's fable of The Ant and the Grasshopper. It is similar to the comedy ¡Three Amigos!, which is about out-of-work actors defending a town while thinking they're merely giving a performance. It also gives an obvious nod to Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai (as well as its Hollywood remake, The Magnificent Seven), which is about Japanese villagers hiring a rag-tag group of swordsmen to fight off rampaging bandits.

Deconstructing Harry is a film by Woody Allen released in 1997. This film tells the story of a successful writer called Harry Block, played by Allen himself, who draws inspiration from people he knows in real-life, and from events that happened to him (sometimes causing these people to become alienated from him as a result).
The actual plot is that of Block driving to a university from which he was once thrown out, in order to receive an honorary degree. The passengers he takes with him on the journey are his son, whom he has kidnapped from his divorced wife, a black prostitute and a friend. However, there are many flash-backs, parts of his stories that are played out, and interactions with his characters.
Woody Allen was nominated an Academy Award for Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen for Deconstructing Harry. The film was also nominated a Golden Satellite Award for Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical.
Allen is well-known as an admirer of many European...
North is a 1994 motion picture directed by Rob Reiner, and starring Elijah Wood, Bruce Willis, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Dan Aykroyd and Reba McEntire. The story is based on the novel North by Alan Zweibel, who also wrote the screenplay and has a minor role in the film.
Wood portrays a child who tires of his parents, legally emancipates himself from them, and wanders around the world seeking a new family.
North received generally negative reviews, and flopped at the box office, earning about US$7 million for an estimated budget of US$40 million ; the film was a multiple nominee at the 1994 Golden Raspberry Awards.
Film critic Roger Ebert seemed especially baffled by North, noting that Wood and especially Reiner had both previously made much better films. Ebert awarded North a rare "zero-stars" rating, and even ten years later it remains on his list of most hated films. His review included the now-famous statement: "I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated...
