Finding Nemo
2003
In this Oscar-winning animated adventure, plucky fish Marlin and Dory search their underwater world for Marlin's missing son, Nemo, who's been scooped up by a scuba diver and dumped in a dentist's aquarium.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Already Pixar has become legendary for its complexity, in both animation and characters. Their fifth feature film doesn't disappoint, even if the plot does feel like a retread of 'Toy Story' and its sequel. Here they create positive role models out of three lead characters who grapple with physical, emotional, and mental handicaps, with Marlin's neuroses being especially complex for the genre. But the film's greatest accomplishment is technical, in how a vast palette and generous use of light & shadow create this wonderous, beautiful world.
