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,
(Dirk is my dad. He made me watch this.)
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 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…
It was pretty much impossible for Pixar to maintain their level of excellence, as recent films like Brave and Monster's University are fine and enjoyable but not anything game changing like their previous work. I don't fault them for their desire to make two Cars films, in fact I expect more to come in the future and I applaud them for it on a business level. It would be absurd to stop producing films that make ridiculous amount of money in toys and merchandising solely for the goal of achieving critical and award show success.
That being said, sitting down and watching a film like Finding Nemo, I can't help but crave another Pixar effort that knocks my socks off.…

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.
Finding Nemo in my opinion, is one of the best pixar movies out there. It has tragedy, comedy, and emotion. Everything that makes a film a classic. I love all the tie ins to the Pixar Theory.(meaning the easter eggs)
The only thing I like about the movie is Dory.
I'm not crying, there's just a clownfish dad and son in my eye.
Well-animated and superbly written, Finding Nemo is a touching tale for all ages.
Excellently done, fun story. Great effects, but story-wise no big stretches
Although Monsters, Inc. (2001) certainly looked good, Finding Nemo is the first Pixar film which is actually stunningly beautiful to look at. It's been about a decade since I first saw this, so it was definitely long overdue another visit. Wonderful voice cast (although special mention has to go to Ellen DeGeneres as Dory), a nice story which works well on multiple levels, and a whole lot of fun. Not quite as good as Toy Story (1995) for me, but damn close.
What an amazing film!! Finding Nemo is what helped cement Pixar as the animation juggernaut that it is, and this came at a time when Pixar was simply destroying all other animation studios that came it's way.
This movie is a simple story, of a father and his inability to let his son be a child, and explore, make mistakes and enjoy life... Only thing, they're Clown fish!!! The values and message is easy to understand, with some great characters and cutting edge animation, Finding Nemo is deffinately one of the best animated features of all time. I hope and pray that the forthcoming Finding Dory captures the same magic that this did, and that it's not just another pointless cash grab like a couple of their other sequels. 4/5 all day!
