Finding Nemo 3D

Finding Nemo 3D

(2012)

There are 3.7 trillion fish in the ocean, they're looking for one.

Disney/Pixar's Oscar-winning family comedy, re-released in 3D.  This was the second highest grossing film worldwide for 2003, behind only The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, and currently the 26th highest grossing film of all time.... More

When a fisherman captures young Nemo near the Great Barrier Reef, his overprotective dad Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) journeys across the ocean to find him. Helping him is a forgetful Regal Blue Tang named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), Bruce the Great White Shark (Barry Humphries), Crush the Sea Tortoise (Andrew Stanton), and Nigel the Pelican (Geoffrey Rush) who can bring the search onto dry land.Hide

Flicks Review

Compared to Disney’s prior rereleases, there’s been a surprising lack of noise behind Finding Nemo 3D, so the opportunity to watch it may pass you by. Don’t let it.... More

This is in the top tier of Pixar’s catalogue, a journey against incredible odds as lone clown fish Marlin journeys across the ocean to find his only son. It’s a story that reminds us that while there are many dangers in the outside world, there is an equal (and perhaps greater) amount of beauty that begs to be discovered. While the nobility of the protective parent is highlighted in Marlin’s unbound dedication to saving his son, Pixar masterfully weaves the value of letting the youth explore the great unknown, despite what we might fear from it.

This striking moral is accompanied by a plethora of gags that still hold up, visuals that still stun even after a decade and one of the best voice cast ensembles ever conceived (Albert Brooks in particular is astonishing).

I could write an entire dissertation on how much I love this movie, but simply put, if you haven’t seen Finding Nemo in years (or, dare I say, ever), this 3D release is a must. The thoughtful conversion turns the screen into an aquarium, emphasising Pixar’s beautiful sense of depth, framing and cinematography. Unlike some of Disney’s previous efforts (Beauty and the Beast 3D, Lion King 3D), Nemo 3D’s existence is completely justified.Hide

  • What's more impressive, and in the end more important, is the high standard of storytelling that Pixar continues to meet by locating both humor and emotional depth in worlds created out of lines of code. Full Review

  • This time the dad is the hero of the story, although in most animation it is almost always the mother. Full Review

  • Terrific-looking and sweet, it's certainly up to the superior standard Pixar has set for prime family entertainment. While not as spectacularly cracking as hip teens and upwards would like (it's more Monsters, Inc. adorable than Toy Story canny), the bright imagining and imaging of the underwater world is swell. Full Review

  • The humor bubbling through Finding Nemo is so fresh, sure of itself and devoid of the cutesy, saccharine condescension that drips through so many family comedies that you have to wonder what it is about the Pixar technology that inspires the creators to be so endlessly inventive. Full Review

  • A spectacular comedy-adventure that's never less than totally immersive. Not quite the masterpiece that Toy Story was, but it's the closest Pixar have come since. Go fish. Full Review
