Finding Nemo (2003)

finding_nemo_-_poster_2

After his son is captured in the Great Barrier Reef and taken to Sydney, a timid clownfish sets out on a journey to bring him home. (IMDb)
A simple yet heartfelt adventure story is packed full of intense action (the final net sequence post-ending felt unnecessary though) and memorable (often hilarious) side characters whilst overflowing with overwhelming emotional depth, from the heartwarming main premise (the “Did you hear?” montage is a tearjerker) to the heartbreaking opening scene, to the nuanced dynamic between Dory and Marlin throughout (I don’t want to forget!” “I do.”). Beautifully animated and stunningly scored to boot.
8.5/10 (Amazing)

  1. Can’t disagree with this one! Easily one of my favorites from Pixar. Despite being released 14 years ago, the animation still holds up surprisingly well, too!
