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.
Watched in anticipation of potentially going to see Finding Dory. Maybe. Or I'll go see The Shallows tomorrow. One or the other. Still a heartwarming tale.
Without any doubt, Finding Nemo is still one of the best animation movies ever made. Touching, thrilling and very funny. Great movie!!
Rewatching it now, it's clear what holds this film back from being amazing is its lackluster main characters. It's not a good sign when nearly every supporting character is more compelling than the main characters. Ellen DeGeneres and Willem Dafoe do excellent voice work in the film, outshining their counterparts, Marlin and Nemo, in their respective story arcs. In typical Pixar fashion, the story moves along at a breezy pace and there are some truly exciting and interesting scenes. It's easy to get caught up in the story and be entertained to a certain extent, like a good TV movie or a Seinfeld re-run. However, along with all of that good stuff comes Pixar's heavy-handed emotional baggage. If only we could be rid of the PSA messaging and tell a real story, this film might have been great.
"After a remarkably rapid set-up which takes in everything from tragedy to family drama to fast-paced action all in the first twenty minutes, the film then settles into a largely episodic structure in a way that Pixar's output prior to this had largely avoided. Whilst consistently enjoyable, the simplistic delivery of the story does mean that Andrew Stanton's lead directorial debut lacks something of the narrative depth achieved in earlier films from the studio".

TL;DR: Súper entretenida y rápida odisea por el océano con algunos de los personajes más encantadores que Pixar ha creado. La adoro. <3

Darla, you crazy bitch!
This is another film I'll have to add to my Movies I Remember Seeing As A Lil' Tot list, as this was one of the handful of Pixar films that I'd watch over and over. It was this, along with Cars, Ratatouille, WALL-E, and Toy Story 3. The Incredibles might've been one of them, but I'm not sure. I think Ratatouille would've had to have been my favorite as an 8-year-old, 'cause it's fun to watch a rat in the kitchen. But this was pretty close.
The titular Nemo is a little clownfish with an overprotective father trying to learn from a past mistake that caused him to lose his wife and 400 other kids. After…
"I am a nice shark, not a mindless eating machine. If I am to change this image, I must first change myself. Fish are friends, not food."
God damn this was so much funnier than I thought it was going to be. Watched in preparation for going to see Finding Dory in clownfish face paint. Lost a bet.
