Our Review of Finding Nemo 3D:
Mark: Kristian, it took me 8 years but I finally found that fishy bastard.
Kristian: Nice. Real nice.
K: Finding Nemo, rereleased in 3D…are we sick of 3D? Yes, but does it still look cool? Of course it does.
M: And it still makes money, especially when you combine that with a Pixar film that is so conducive to that technology…and I had the added bonus of never seeing the movie before.
K: That’s right, the perfect movie to put in 3D because this movie was Pixar during their Tiger Woods heydey.
M: That’s right, they haven’t fallen off the map but they made a movie in Brave that wasn’t great, so they’ve proven now to be mortal.
K: Yeah, right now they’re in an argument with their wife and a golf club at Thanksgiving.
M: It did come out in their prime, I had never seen it and I have a bone to pick with you my friend…I thought this would be a cute kid’s movie, crabs dancing and singing, but no: this is a father son bonding movie. Some serious dramatic stuff going on here.
K: I would have but you’re always the guy that wants to know nothing going into it.
M: Coulda told me to bring some Kleenex.
K: What’d ya think?
M: It’s a great movie, so much fun, an acheivement that should be enjoyed by children of all ages.
K: At the outset it’s a tragic story that happens, and a father fish played by Albert Brooks is very protective of his only son Nemo…the kid gets lost and it sets off an incredible adventure movie. The dad has to find his son, Nemo has to stay alive.
M: And maybe they’ll discover a little something about themselves on the way.
K: This is great because it showcases everything that Pixar does well: the animation, sound effects and now 3D are perfect…the story is great and the jokes are so funny.
M: Sense of humor that is for adults as well as kid and the story moves so well; Nemo is meeting new friends on his adventure, meanwhile the dad teams up with a hilarious fish played by Ellen DeGeneres. Never a dull moment in this flick.
K: And what this has too, even the small parts have character.
M: Every damn fish and animal has a distinct personality.
K: Personality…everyone had a personality that was tremendous, Ellen DeGeneres, Willem Dafoe…
M: Who played Nemo?
K: Alexander Gould who’s now on Weeds, he was 9 at the time. And then Albert Brooks, quite a switch from Drive, huh?
M: Yeah, he’s a bit nicer in this one…he was the perfect casting choice to play that mix of worrying father and reluctant adventurer.
K: Go see this movie, so much fun and the laughs are just…
M: There’s a scene in this movie that is so funny it had Kristian on the floor laughing…do you know how hard it is to get a human on the floor of a dirty movie theater?
K: And that scene, it was as funny as I remember…you know what it was? Subtle. Didn’t beat you over the head with the joke, and it just knocks it out of the park. I love everything about this movie, one of my favorite Pixar movies, 5/5 Schmoes.
M: Yep, I’m going 4.5/5 Schmoes; didn’t love it quite as much as Toy Story but man is it great…well done gang.
K: How about you Schmoeville? Are you looking forward to going back under the sea? What will you see this weekend, this or Indiana Jones?
M: So you can go see Nemo in 3D or Indiana Jones in IMAX…what’s that say about the current state of movies?
K: Means no one’s coming up with anything new that’s good.
K: And make sure you check out our podcast on Toad Hop, the video was down for a bit but it’s back up and running!
M: We’re fine…we’re all fine here now…how are you?
