Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
There are 3.7 trillion fish in the ocean, they're looking for one.
A tale which follows the comedic and eventful journeys of two fish, the fretful Marlin and his young son Nemo, who are separated from each other in the Great Barrier Reef when Nemo is unexpectedly taken from his home and thrust into a fish tank in a dentist's office overlooking Sydney Harbor. Buoyed by the companionship of a friendly but forgetful fish named Dory, the overly cautious Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic journey to rescue his son.
So this basically was remade into Taken, right?
Dear Pixar people,
.......I love you.....
Hugs and kisses,

What a way to kick off the new year!
My New Year's Resolution is to watch better films, and so far I'm certainly hanging in there. As you probably may have understood, this is one of my absolute favorite films. This is a masterpiece and shows an Animation studio at its peak, both creatively and technically. The attention to detail is almost unparalleled. I'm no marine expert, I'll just have to take other people's word for it - everything in the film's ecosystem is projected with perfect accuracy. I understand that marine biologists were quite astonished and impressed by this when the film came out, in what one traditionally would perceive as a…
If parenthood is this terrifying, then I'll just stick to being someone else's child forever, thanks.
Eh, I probably won't stand by that. I'm too eager to show my future children this film one day and watch their reactions to every moment I loved, every part that scared the kid in me, every hilarious dialogue.
Long live Pixar.

What a fantastic film. By this point in time you can walk up to anyone and ask if they have seen Finding Nemo, and everyone would say yes. You just get so into this film that it couldn't possibly be bad. Whenever I get done watching this film, then it just puts me in a good mood.
The moral of the story is great. Your father will travel the world for you. It also sends a great message on friendship. How everyone deserves a chance, and anyone can be of help to you. I like to think of this film as one of those classics that will go down in history forever. A good majority of the world has already seen it. For those of you who haven't seen it, I don't believe you're actually alive. Fantastic film.
Ten years on, Finding Nemo is just as delightful as it was the first time around. Whether it be fish, bugs, robots, toys or monsters, Pixar (almost) always do a fine job of making me care about these characters. The only exception of course is cars, because fuck cars.
Even from its title it's obvious how Finding Nemo will end, but I don't think its predictability harms it - this is a movie about the dedication of a loving parent and the hardships he's willing to overcome for his son. While I don't have a child, I still find the theme very touching as my parents are the most important people in my life and I'd like to think if…
Looks amazing, but Ellen DeGeneres ultimately ruins the experience.
That turtle is just unforgettable
One of my childhood movies.
How could anyone not like this film? It's Finding Nemo...one of the best Disney animated films ever made!
Earlier today, I saw the new Disneynature film Bears. I mention this because the opening scene of Finding Nemo is more trusting of its audience to understand how a foreign environment populated by animal (well, marine here) life operates than the entirety of Bears is. This is how you communicate a new world to a wide audience: with confidence and trust.
Having seen this movie in parts years ago, I had the urge to watch it again. To no one's surprise, it still holds up wonderfully. The voice casting is just flawless from top to bottom. The highlight is Ellen Degeneres as Dory, who is hilarious, specifically when she tries to speak whale. The story is moving and engaging of course, but what struck me most seeing the film a second time was Pixar's depiction of sea life. The characters are funny and unique, but the manner in which they showcase the ocean and all of its complex inhabitants comes off as more authentic (not to mention educational) than we might acknowledge. We really get a great sense of this world. Say what you will about all the sequels Pixar is launching lately, but I am excited to see Finding Dory, if only to have another adventure with these characters.
I didn't know the director voiced Crush.
