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?
Marking the biggest leap for Pixar Animation Studios since their groundbreaking debut with Toy Story in 1995, Finding Nemo brings a whole new level of maturity in Pixar's method of storytelling, a new surge in its humour, creativity & imagination, and another elevation in its already unparalleled animation to succeed not only as one of the best films of its genre but is also exceptional enough to be regarded as one of the greatest films of all time.
Finding Nemo tells the story of Marlin; a clownfish residing in the Great Barrier Reef who's very overprotective of his son, Nemo. When Nemo is captured by scuba divers & taken to Sydney, Marlin sets out on a journey throughout the ocean to find…

Much like A Bug’s Life, Pixar has once again utilised the medium of animation to take on a perspective that is far too difficult if taken on the live-action format; this time straying away from the usual perception of human children, and instead taking its familiar fundamentals and translate them to the middle of the ocean, where our protagonists are now a Clownfish and a Blue Tang fish, driven by the unfortunate tragedy of a stolen child.
“Wow” is the film’s opening dialogue and indeed it speaks concisely and accurately of the visual wonder that Pixar has provided unto us, another progressive step into the mastering of the technology, capturing a world that is unknown…
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.
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.…
Can't wait for the sequel, Finding People's Wallet.
Twelve years after its release, Finding Nemo still holds up beautifully in terms of animation. The water effects and the way its variety of colourful marine creatures navigate its bright blue depths is beautiful to behold. Finding Nemo isn’t just about style though. As expected with a Pixar entry, there’s depth here too (and not just in terms of the ocean). Nemo teaches children about being resourceful and the strength of parental love; while surely holding resonance for parents or anyone in a close mentor role to someone young.
The voice cast is fantastic. Brooks and Gould give powerful, emotional performances while DeGeneres became a fan favourite with her humourous performance as forgetful blue tang Dory (expect a sequel focusing…

Here’s why Pixar Studios, producers of the Toy Story series, A Bug’s Life and Monsters, Inc., is revered by film lovers: The worst thing that can be said about the company is that its latest, Finding Nemo, isn’t a “classic.”
Since stealing the crown as feature animation leader from Disney with Toy Story, Pixar has conjured digital visual magic at the clip of one classic about every two years. Practically the only glory now wielded by Disney is its contract to release Pixar films.
Nemo is a good movie and a very good children’s film. Sporting the voices of Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres, it follows a worrisome clownfish (guess who) while he searches the ocean for…
I think Finding Nemo was the first Pixar film I ever watched. I still remember almost everything from the trip to the cinema, how excited I was to watch it, how much I laughed, how much I loved it. 12 years later I still love it. I grew up, my taste changed a lot but there's a certain magic about Finding Nemo, and Pixar movies in general, that makes them so special and enjoyable for children and adults alike. You can grow up with these movies and they grow with you and as you get older you start to see things differently and notice things about the movies that you didn't see before.
No argument should be brought about into why this film is 5 out of 5. Marlin is certainly compared to my father in his tender loving heart towards his family and kids and would do anything for them. Such a classic to my generation.
Finding Nemo represents a point in Pixar's evolution where the animation is getting so good that the character models can begin bearing some of the emotional burden, which the movie uses to great effect. The only real problem with the movie is the way it is driven at every moment by coincidence, despite the fact that the characters keep trying to show ingenuity.
Combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results…
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
