With its resplendent animation, terrific voice cast, and an immersive (in more ways than one) story of a father’s search for his missing son, Pixar’s Finding Nemo is one of the studio’s preeminent efforts, a comic adventure tale filled with the magical Pixar ingredients of humor, hope, and heart that distinguish all of its best efforts. Everything came together magically for Finding Nemo, the first of many Pixar movies to win the Best Animated Feature Oscar. And now in 3D, the movie takes on even more glorious depths both visually and dramatically.

 

Mr. Ray’s Encyclopedia is a very amusing series of thirteen brief informative bits on sea creatures portrayed in the movie with real-life facts about them.   The fourth disc in the set is the DVD copy of the movie.   The fifth disc in the set is the digital copy of the movie.    

In Conclusion

5/5 (not an average)   Finding Nemo is one of those indispensable movies that only comes along once in a generation: a heartwarming and hilarious film that offers magnificently engrossing  entertainment for every member of the family. Even more so in 3D, the movie is essential, and this new Blu-ray release is as close to perfection as it’s possible to be. Highest recommendation!       Matt Hough Charlotte, NC

VERY highly anticipated.   Especially now, after reading this review.   Thanks, Matt! 

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Matt - thank you for this review. At the risk of sounding churlish, I'd like to ask about banding in one particular scene - the one where Nemo's dad meets the very nasty angler fish. In the DVD version this produced horrible banding on any set up I tried it on (plasma, LED, you name it, it banded *horribly*). In case this reference isn't sufficient, I'm talking about the white light from the angler fish's light against the inky black background. An HD version was shown on Brit TV a while ago and the banding had all but gone. Is it absent from the blu ray version, please?

Not specifically helpful to you probably, but in a 3D trailer for this on a recent 3D blu, that scene you describe has very horrible banding.

I didn't notice any banding in the 3D version, and I'm going to be finshing a TV box set tonight and tomorrow for my next review (after I post Up 3D in a couple of hours), so I won't have time to check tonight, but I'll try to get to it tomorrow and look specifically at that scene again.

On Knick Knack, I didn't know it needed censoring. What was deleted? Excellent review and I am so looking forward to this release.

Nothing deleted...the mermaid had a breast reduction. Seriously.

  I'll never understand why Pixar felt the need to do that.

I seem to recall reading somewhere (and perhaps it is merely speculation) that the creators of Knick Knack, as they got older and began having families, began to fret over what their children would think of the ginormous animated racks so they redid those scenes. Who knows? - Walter.
Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

I wouldn't think well-endowed women would be a problem for children...

Yeah, what kid would even realize what the joke is? As far as I'm concerned, it's cut for overly sensitive adults who worry too much about their kids.

  Give that man a cigar!    Oh.  Wait.  Probably someone would think I meant something untoward with THAT remark.  We need to get a moderator to edit that out before someone gets offended.

  I did rewatch this sequence in 3D again tonight, and for the most part, I couldn't spot any banding at all. If there is any, it came at the very end of the sequence when the screen goes completely white. There may have been a slight trace of banding near the end of that sequence, but it's so slight and it's over so quickly that it wouldn't matter if it was there. I was watching on a plasma set if that makes a difference.

Matt - many many thanks for this. If the banding has gone I will buy it. I have a plasma.

Appears to be unedited Knick Knack but with different music and not the original audio. Love this movie. Might be looking forward to this more than anything else in a long time.

Ah. Now I see. The original does make a better impression and certainly takes advantage of 3D. :D
