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…
"Fish are friends, not food."
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.
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.…
You can't go wrong with Pixar. This film was one of the minor Pixar movies for me. I love WALL*E and Ratatouille. I like Up and The Incredibles a lot. I enjoy all 3 Toy Story movies and so forth. Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc. were movies that I thought were cute and sort of funny, but not great cinema.
This past weekend I took my kids up to my girlfriends house and we all watched the fish together. I think I might have enjoyed it the most of any of us. It made me laugh out loud (in a very honest way) several times. I was touched when I was supposed to be, but not overly so. I thought…
I won't lie I loved this movie as a kid, after I rewatcmovies.hed it I didn't like it as much as I once did but i still think it's a really good movie with good voice actors but for some reason I don't think its up there with most Disney
"Finding Nemo" is just another example of how Pixar has transformed (and raised the expectations for) animation, and how a good script, paired with newfangled computer doohickeys, can help us all suspend disbelief.
It's an exciting adventure, in which Nemo, the only son of an overprotective clownfish, Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks), goes missing. Marlin has to go across the oceans to find the little guy.
The adventure itself is a cross-section of the panoply of all sorts of sea creatures, with the perfect combination of humor, gravitas and suspense.
Of course, there is a killed-off parent to deal with (since it's a Disney movie); a kooky sidekick, Dory (the hilarious Ellen Degeneres); an anti-hero; and the other trappings of…
i'm gonna touch the butt
Another fantastic Pixar movie!
Adventures in the DVD Wallet #5
I'm not sure which is scarier: the number of animated films that have been creeping into the DVD wallet as of late, or the number of times I'm subjected to these movies on a daily basis. I mean, just a short time ago my DVD collection was a thing of wonder, an unsullied assortment of zombie hordes, Nineties action flicks, and all things Wes Anderson and Coen Brothers. What a glorious time it was, no terrible Baby Genius compilations of nursery rhymes, no films about Barbie as a time-travelling ballerina, no Disney. The closest thing I had to a talking animal movie was the "Chaos Reigns" fox scene from Lars Von Trier's Antichrist.
Daddy Fish cares " Too much " for his son
Son makes a stupid decision and is taken away
Both daddy and the kid regret their actions
daddy finds the kid
now their relationship is fixed .
" Parents , give more freedom to your kids . Being a stupid child is just in them ."
Such a been-told-many times moral statement could have become another tasteless little family film , but on the hands of good old 00's Pixar we have one of the greatest animated movies of the past decades .
First , the animation : Oh that mysterious endless blue .... The Ocean created in Finding Nemo makes it arguably the most good-looking movie Pixar has ever…
I'm very torn on 'Finding Nemo'. I think the film has an amazing setting, I love the ocean and the underwater visual technology is astounding. And I think the film does have some very emotional moments that the Pixar films were quickly becoming known for in 2003 that really help sell the story. But, I just have such a hard time relating to the characters and I think that is arguably what made the first several films what they are. I also think the film's subplot with Nemo and the other fish in the dentist's tank plotting their escape, while essential to the overall story, feels like a very unnecessary, and even at times distracting, detour at times.
'Finding Nemo' is great at times, but I feel like Pixar has turned out much better efforts elsewhere (both before and after this film's release).
Eigentlich sollte der Film Dori heißen, der lustigste Fisch aller Zeiten. Genial animiert, exzellent vertont, witzige Geschichte ... was will man mehr von einem Pixar- Meisterwerk?
