FINDING NEMO 3D cover image Click to play video trailer
Hello everyone. My name is Anthony Aranda from KIDS FIRST! I just got finished watching a new twist on an all-time favorite Disney classic movie called "Finding Nemo 3D." This movie is all about a fish named Nemo whose dad is bringing him to school. His dad gets too worried though and goes after Nemo. This made Nemo mad so he goes to open water, touches a boat and gets captured by divers. Then his dad has to go on a big adventure to save him. The main characters in this movie are Nemo, Dory, and Marlin. My favorite character is Dory because she is a really funny character and she helps Marlin go to Sydney to find his son. She also loves meeting new people but a second later she forgets them, which makes her really funny. My favorite part in this movie is when Dory sees a little jelly fish and names it Squishy and she got stung and said "Ouch! Bad squishy, bad!" and then a big bunch of jelly fish come out and she bounces on the top so Marlin gets an idea so he says whoever gets to the end of the jelly fish wins. So they raced through the jelly fish but Dory got stung so Marlin had to go save her, luckily he did, but that made him pass out. If I was to rate this movie with stars I would give it 7 out of 10 because I thought the 3D was cool but they needed to add more 3D parts to the movie and I've seen this movie too many times so the fact that it didn't have a lot of 3D made it kind of boring to me. I would recommend this movie for all ages. Because it is a good classic movie that everyone is able to watch. Go out and see this movie when it comes out in theaters on September 14. Anthony Aranda, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic. Watching Finding Nemo 3D is like you are snorkeling and looking through your goggles and enjoy the colorful fish and sea life. This story is about Marlin (voice by Albert Brooks), an overprotective father of Nemo (voice by Alexander Gould), as a clown fish with a defective fin. It all started with Nemo's mom and dad looking at all 400 eggs and try to determine names for each of the egg. Suddenly, a barracuda came to the coral and knock Marlin unconscious. When Marlin wakes up, the reef is empty; with no fish around, the only egg left under the coral was Nemo. Marlin became very protective dad and will not let Nemo out of his sight. However, Nemo is the opposite of his dad. He always wants to swim into the unknown. On the first day of school, Nemo wander off outside the reef and was captured by a dentist. This started Marlin's journey to find his son. He swims as fast as he can and asks for help finding Nemo. The only fish stopped to help Marlin is Dory (voice by Ellen DeGeneres). Dory has a big heart and always positive. The only problem is she has short term memory loss. The story line is the father and son love, unpredictable, and very funny. There are so many punch lines in this movie that will keep you laughing throughout the movie. The clear and crisp color with 3D is magical. It feels like I am snorkeling and ready to touch these sea creatures. I can see the layers of rainbow coral reef, several rows of teeth in Bruce the shark mouth, the pelican beak and jelly fish seem so soft and real. The best 3D part is with the whale and the krill swimming toward the audience. I love how production and design makes Dory velvety, Marlin and Nemo soft and gummy. The rest of the fish are metallic, typical scaly fish. This makes Dory, Marlin and Nemo more lovable. The sound effects of water sloshing and crashing are very realistic. The only part I did not like is what happens to Nemo mom. Will Disney come back with Nemo reunited with his mom? The lessons in this movie are Marlin deal with his fear and swims all the way to Australia to find his son Nemo and he learn to have faith. My favorite character is Dory with her big heart and Crush the laid back father turtle and his children. The message of this movie is listens to your parents, they only try to protect you and give you good advice. Parents are alive longer so they know a lot more than their children. I rank this movie 5 out of 5 stars. I give this age ranged 3 and up. Cheyenne Nguyen, age 8, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic. Hi I'm Victoria Burns here reporting for Kids First! When I watched Finding Nemo in 3D it brought back so many memories of being a little kid. When I saw Finding Nemo for the first time, I was about six or seven and I remember being awed by all of the sea creatures. I now realize that this movie is really educational, and the creators were smart to make a what would be a boring didactic movie exciting and interesting. It informs children about marine life and sparks their interest in these topics. I have always loved this movie and watching it in 3D makes this classic even better. This movie is about Nemo (Alexander Gould) who's dad, Marlin (Albert Brooks), never lets Nemo go anywhere because before he was born a shark killed Nemo's mother and eggs. Nemo's dad finally lets him go to school, but when they go on a field trip Nemo disobeys his father and touches a boat and says, "I hate you." Nemo is then taken by a diver and his father goes through anything and everything to find his son. Along the way Marlon gets help from a fish who has short term memory loss named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), and together they through non fish eating sharks, the abyss, jellyfish, sea turtles, and swimming in a whale's mouth all to get to Sydney, Australia. Meanwhile Nemo is in a fish tank trying to escape with the help of his new friend Gill (Willem Dafoe). The rest is a heartwarming surprise. This movie really made me happy because until now I had forgotten about how much I like it until I watched it again. In 3D this movie makes some things stand out like: fish swimming towards you, balloon explosions, birds, and sharks. I would definitely give this movie five out of five stars because it is an educational movie disguised as a cartoon, so children would be entertained by it and I always like it no matter how many times that I watch it. I think it is clever how some of the characters personified the actual qualities of the marine life in the ocean, and it is cool to see what they would be like if talking was a possibility for them. I recommend this movie for anyone, but if I had to give ages it would be from 5-35 or older if some parents love these movies like mine do. Victoria Burns, age 14, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
