The best that cinema has had to offer since 2000 as picked by 177 film critics from around the world.…
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.
Still baffled that this was released back in 2003. The animation is absolutely gorgeous - littered with detail and depth - and the character models are stunning in how they flow through their environment, elegantly swimming across the deep blue sea. Never has a Pixar film been so purely entertaining within the context of a deeply emotional journey. In spite of its darkness and turmoil, Finding Nemo expertly weaves through humor and action by utilizing quick cuts of physical comedy and coherent, dazzling set-pieces; the highlight being a suspenseful jellyfish encounter that still manages to add comedy and pathos along the way. One of the most soothing movies I can think of.
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…
Included In Lists:
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,

I revisited Finding Nemo after having seen Finding Dory and I found it much darker in tone. I recalled the couple of dark scenes involving the sharks and the dark scenes that took place in the deep. The adventure was more carefully crafted than Finding Dory, but not as fun in tone. I think Finding Dory is one of those films that will be easier to rewatch because of its light and playful tone. I loved some of the new characters introduced as well, but the turtles were missed. They only had a short cameo in Finding Dory when I thought they were one of the best things about Finding Nemo. The two films are great and the producers didn't mess the sequel up.
Extremely rewatchable. Bits I discovered this time: the "I am H2O intolerant line" and the Jellyman and The Dude gently nodding in unison.
Watched this first with my young kids, now I just re-watch because it's such a good-feel movie. Always feel brighter and lighter after this entertaining view :) Kinda want to be Dory!!??
Rewatched this in preparation for Finding Dory and it is still as good as 10 years ago.
Nach jahrelanger Weigerung endlich angeschaut...und begeistert. Die Figuren sind ein Wahnsinn, die Story mitreißend bis zum Schluss, die Dialoge jeder anderen Komödie ebenbürtig, wenn nicht überlegen. Zurecht einer der beliebtesten Filme der 00er-Jahre und sogar noch besser als Ratatouille.
THERE IT IS. I LOVE THIS MOVIE AS MUCH AS I LOVE THE INCREDIBLES. FINDING NEMO IS GOOD PURE INCREDIBLE THE PLOT IS AMAZING AND UGH I LOVE MARLIN HES SO UNDERRATED #DICKSOUTFORMARLIN
Stunning animation which deserves high praise. The story has suspense, even though it’s predictable. Dory is probably the dumbest animated character in history, who is both cute and somewhat annoying. A film that might put you off having fish in a fish tank. Finding Nemo is entertaining enough, although the actual story is merely so-so.
shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeet I was 6 when it came out
i saw this in theaters 7 times when it first came out
The reason Pixar used to be better is because they focused on form before content.
It still is the reason Pixar is better than Dreamworks, Illumination, and even Disney; the filmmakers understand film before focusing on family humor and happy stories.
In Finding Nemo's case, computer animation is used to its fullest potential. The brightest locations are their home reef (paradise) and the fish tank (false paradise). It started on a beautifully dark scene. One of the best characters in 21st century film history is a fucking clownfish.
And yeah, while Pixar's recent works are fine, content and being "clever" supercedes filmmaking (see Inside Out).
It's impressive that a film can mean so much to so many different audiences. Salute to you, Finding Nemo.
