    I viewed "Nemo" a couple weeks ago and plan to give it **** when I'm able to post the review next week.

    I hope this movie has a much better story than Monsters Inc. I still can't get over how half assed that movie was (story wise).

    I admit I'm excited by this film; I'm hoping it redeems what I consider a mediocre effort in "Monsters Inc." last year. (Mediocre compared to TS1 and TS2 at least...)

    Go Pixar!

    And what would I really like to see? A collaboration between John Lasseter and Hayao Miyazaki! When I see the words "A Pixar/ Studio Ghibli film..." on the screen, I will truly be a happy camper! Here's to hoping it happens...

    Pixar has their own unique "style" and way of telling a story. I'd really hate to see them get into the anime thing any time soon. My opinion of course.

    What's funny is that if you look at the "Rotten Tomatoe" the only one the movie has received so far, they gave it a B+ and largely praised it.. ??? Did I miss something?

    I haven't read the rest of this thread, but when my review is released, it will be an unconditional rave. One of the year's best to date.

    As for ranking among the Pixar films, I'd put the two Toy Story films on top, followed by Finding Nemo, A Bug's Life, and Monsters, Inc.

    More good vibes, this time from Village Voice.

    P.S. I believe "The Great Mouse Detective" was the first Disney animated feature to use some CGI - in the Big Ben sequence.

    I'm not exactly sure what you guys are referring to, but all the review information (star/grade rating, fresh or rotten, etc.) comes from the individual critics and not the website. Whenever I link a review to Rotten Tomatoes, I'm given a page like this:

    ----
    Finding Nemo

    Short quote:

    Review URL:

    Review source:

    Grade/Star rating:

    Fresh or Rotten:
    ----

    So if you're noticing a discrepancy between the rating and the actual review itself, maybe drop an email to the writer. It's quite possible they clicked the wrong thingie on their submission page. I've done it more than once!

    Tonight I have a choice between The Italian Job or Finding Nemo. All my friends are taking their 3-year-olds to see Nemo on Friday afternoon, so that's when I'll be seeing it. Watching children take in a Pixar flick is an absolute joy to behold. Can't wait to see this one.

    The review in question from Ross Anthony has been changed to positive. They now have 13 positive reviews and no negs. RT still don't have the Newsweek rave posted.

    This movie deserves to be -big-. If you are a techno fan, it should dazzle and impress you the digital quality of effects with the most difficult of surfaces (water).. if you have a family, it's good family fare. I need to upgrade my prediction on Nemo to $300M+
