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.
I'm H2O intolerant.
Andrew Stanton's Finding Nemo holds a special place in my heart that can't be filled with any other film. Not only was it the first film I saw in theaters, but it was also the first film we got on DVD. I also believe this film has the absolute best use of audio of all the Pixar films, utilizing THX's sound technology to its fullest extent, making for one of the most visceral experiences I can remember. Of course, everything is going to sound and look better in the theater, but at twelve years old, this classic still rings as clear as it did when I first saw it.
Marlin goes down in my book as one…
Holy crap this is so, so pretty on blu-ray.
Film's good, too.
I. Love. This. Movie. Sosososomuch.
The pacing is absolutely wonderful, the animation so truly magnificent (I love you, baby blu), all the jokes land and all the emotion hits, hard. The story is just so powerful, and I feel like somehow there's no better way than to convey it in the middle of the ocean. I love it so much. I am so excited and scared for Finding Dory. How can it ever live up to this, but at the same time yes, anything to see how my fishy friends are doing.
Best animated film of all time IMO, I really hope "Finding Dory" will be great or at least good (5 MORE MONTHS!!!)
There are only about 3 factors that keep "Finding Nemo" from earning a perfect A+ 10.
1) It's less funny than the other Pixar films that preceded it. Though at times hilarious, and at most others amusing, a large portion of the humor doesn't build beyond the momentum of smile-worthy. I'm referring mainly to the banter between Albert Brooks and Ellen Degeneres, the main fish characters. Brooks' flustery act can be hilarious, but to me he's always seemed better in other speeds (like Hank Scorpio on "The Simpsons") rather than doing a Woody Allen impression, and Degeneres, while truly endearing a personality, goes a little overboard with the attempted wacky sidekick skits. The actors themselves turn in perfect vocal performances,…
DVD Collection #41: Still a modern classic animated film. Designed beautifully and expansively to create this world underneath the sea more than any other film I've ever seen. The story is incredibly heartfelt and very mature the more I watch it. I wonder how the storytellers wanted to explain this story: A child clown fish gets taken by a group of boaters and it's up to his father and a fish with amnesia to save him. What a messed up idea, but it all works here! It's such a hilarious film filled with many different characters and adventures to go by. You are truly lost in this world. It's a Pixar masterpiece.
Another emotional triumph from Pixar.
