Finding Nemo came out at a time when Pixar just couldn’t be beat, even though it was having lots of good competition from other computer animation companies. This fish tale came surfing in on a high wave of the success of Monsters, Inc. We all thought it just couldn’t get any better as far as family movies go, and then Pixar wowed us again with this amazing fish story.

A clown fish, Marlin (Albert Brooks), and his mate, Coral (Elizabeth Perkins), have set up the perfect nest for their brood in a patch of sea anemones with a small cave underneath. This is a home with a view to the open ocean, but Marlin feels safe with the stinging anemones to keep him, Coral, and their over four hundred little roes to hide them from predators. Sadly, having such a great view will not always keep the big fish out, and when a nasty predator comes calling suddenly all of Marlin’s efforts to keep Coral and the little ones safe fall flat as he is knocked out cold. When he wakes up, he finds Coral and all but one of the eggs gone. he makes a promise to keep the little fish safe always. This last little fish is his son, Nemo (Alexander Gould).

Mysterious Island (TV 2005 Miniseries)

This version of Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island by Echo Bridge is dubbed “The Most Thrilling Adventure Unknown To Man” by them on the DVD cover and in the promotional material as well. The miniseries does have some thrills but not as much as you would expect with the name Jules Verne in the title. While the show was entertaining and a good addition to any DVD collection it did have some drawbacks that had nothing to do with the story or main character acting. Most of the problems were with the special effects that were used in the film. You see volcano smoke that is not firmly anchored to the top of the mountings, the bottom of the smoke cloud kept moving around. While I understand that smoke does move it does not shift at the top of a hole when it is filling the entire hole. Something like that is not possible, not even in a fantasy setting. Also the blue/green screening was not well executed, the action being filmed was not tracked correctly by the special effects team. It is things like this that you need to try and forget when watching the film. Unfortunately they did a good job with the spiders, I really hate spiders. The rate was fair but the speed it was running did not match up with the landscape like it should and the snake was a bit too rubber looking but was better then the snakes that were seen in other films that we have reviewed.
