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.…
Watched this after trying to watch both Ratatouille and The Incredibles and not getting past the first couple minutes (I don't like the Brad Bird Pixar movies for some reason. They don't feel like true Pixar.).
This film is great. It's a wonderful, instantly engaging and emotional setup. The world of the film is beautiful to be in, and all the characters are hilarious. There is so much to enjoy. It's really packed with funny stuff. From the AA sharks who are trying to not eat fish, to the seagulls, to the tiny-ass scared fish they meet with the sharks, to Nemo's friends, and the aquarium fish.
Még mindig aranyos és megható mese. És még mindig nem tudom miért kell minden Disney mesének egy vagy több szülő halálával kezdődnie.
It’s with a fair amount of trepidation that I recommend the most recent Pixar Animation Studios release. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy the film, rather its just that the target audience for this film - the little ones - will have about ten unique reasons to cry through this dark look into the Australian waterways.
Yes, our little dear friends may be frightened by a bevy of scarily drawn creatures of the sea, or the peril associated with little Nemo’s (Alexander Gould) undesired journey to the fishtank of a dentist in Sydney, Australia. Little Nemo, a beautiful Pixar-constructed clownfish, dares to defy his overprotective father Marlin (Albert Brooks) and is consequentially swooped up by a diving enthusiast. Marlin, who…
Great Family Movie
'This is the Ocean, silly, we're not the only two in here.'
While Toy Story, Monsters Inc and The Incredibles all excel in translating the Pixar ethos onto the screen, it is Finding Nemo which, for my money, is the pick of the bunch. Its characters are lively and varied, its story engrossing and moving, and its humour is wonderfully sharp. Where Up crams the emotional strength into a cruel ten minute opening, Finding Nemo plays out tragedy, heartbreak and determination over the course of the film, and benefits from the constant high stakes, and the supreme intimacy of its central relationship.
Albert Brooks' Marlin is a strong protagonist, who benefits from a concerned and paranoid performance, and whose desperation…
One of my favorite animated movies of all time. I don't know why, but I adore movies that take place in ocean or sea. Interesting story, beautiful animation, wonderful movie. I love almost everything about this movie.
Here's the thing; I can appreciate that Finding Nemo is quite a well made film but it's never clicked with me in the way it has with so many others.
The animation is generally stunning, the soundtrack is impressive and there are clever ideas throughout the script but every time I watch it I find myself unable to connect to the characters, even Marlin who is marvelously voiced by Albert Brooks, and most of the jokes fall flat for me.
I find the first four Pixar feature films hilarious from start to finish and they have a lot of heart but Finding Nemo has always left me cold. As mentioned before Albert Brooks gives a charming performance but stands with…
Funny, entertaining, good story.
Personally my favourite Pixar film of all the studio's theatric ventures. I feel it has the strongest elements of adventure, comedy, suspense, love and all other aspects that make not only a great animated feature, but a film in general. So many likeable characters in Marlin, Dory, Nemo and all their aquatic friends... and of course, Nigel the Pelican.
And yes, as a man past my childlike years, Finding Nemo manages to make me blubber every single time.
