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

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
