Sea it like never before! For the first time ever, through the magic of Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D, fully immerse yourself in the stunning underwater world of Disney/Pixar's FINDING NEMO! From the creators of TOY STORY and MONSTERS, INC., this critically acclaimed and heartwarming tale splashes off the screen with brilliant digital picture, high definition sound and breathtaking bonus features that transport you beyond your imagination. In the depths of the Great Barrier Reef, Marlin (Albert Brooks), an overly protective clownfish, embarks on a daring rescue mission when his beloved son, Nemo, gets scooped up by a diver. With his unforgettable friend Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) by his side, Marlin encounters an ocean full of memorable comedic characters on his momentous journey -- to find Nemo. Bring home the humor and heartfelt emotion of the epic adventure that captured the Academy Award for "Best Animated Feature Film" (2003) -- now more awesome than ever on Disney Blu-ray!
If there's any environment that demands 3-D treatment, it's the ocean. Pixar has lovingly translated its 2003 megahit Finding Nemo into 3-D. The result is a lush, inviting undersea world that makes this wonderful tale of loss, parental love, and thrilling adventure even more engaging. The company has wisely not altered the story at all: when a young clownfish named Nemo is captured by scuba divers, his neurotic father Marlin (voiced by neurotic comedian Albert Brooks) sets off to the rescue, aided by a blue tang fish named Dory (brilliantly voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) with a short-term memory loss problem. What follows are ingeniously orchestrated action sequences featuring sharks, jellyfish, a ghastly translucent deepwater fish, pelicans and seagulls, sea turtles, and even an elaborate escape from an aquarium in an Australian dentist's office--all enhanced (but not overdone) by being made 3-D. Through it all runs a deep current of emotion that has made Finding Nemo one of Pixar's most successful features. This 3-D release will only add to its appeal; Marlin and Dory's odyssey through the watery depths is made even more immersive by this marriage of subtle artistry and technical skill. --Bret Fetzer

Since you likely know the story, I'll only comment briefly on that. This movie dares to tackle some very important issues, some for children, but some that even parents could benefit from. The idea of accepting someone because they're different or believing that you can still do anything despite physical handicaps, is a message that everyone should listen to. Looking over all of the adventures that Nemo has, he really can do anything that he sets his mind to. Even more profound, though, is the idea of over-parenting. And we hear it summed up so well by Dory, the most unlikely character to deliver such a message, when she says, "Well, you can't never let anything happen to him. Then nothing would ever happen to him." As much as we'd like to keep our kids confined so they're safe, we also have to learn to let go. Notice how at the end, when Marlin does let him go to school, Nemo swims back to say, "I love you, dad."
Now on to the blu ray. Back when this movie first came out, blu ray wasn't even a trademark term. So we looked at the DVD and figured the quality was good enough. Seeing this beautiful film on an HDTV is simply amazing. The magnificent colors, the tiny details of the fish and the ocean, and the 7.1 surround sound is just beautiful. We sometimes get disappointed with blu ray conversions when studios seem to make little to no effort to improve the sound and picture quality. Not the case with this one. I just can't stress enough how perfect this movie is going to look on your big screen.
I'd consider this to be one of Pixar's greatest works, from animation quality, to story, to casting. On top of all that, the improvement to high def is well worth the price. This is one movie no family should be without.
In summary, if you have 3D, and liked NEMO, you will absolutely love this for yourself or to give as a gift. If you have any trouble with colored bands of noise, check the firmware versions of your DVD player and TV, and update if they are not the latest. (Updating is easy, at least on some models such as Samsung: either online, download and USB, or even by DVD.
