Finding Nemo

I did not like this movie. It’s not bad, but since I was expecting a happy-go-lucky animated feature and had just paid $20 to own it on iTunes, I wasn’t prepared for a mass slaughter (mom and fish babies) and a child abduction in the first 15 minutes. Then (then!) we spend the balance of the film exploring the worst of what the ocean has to offer: sharks, abandoned mine fields, wreckages, deep black trenches, stinging jellyfish, terrible Anglerfish, giant whales, fishing boats, etc. Nature is cruel, and the ocean is frankly terrifying.

Upsides: It’s visually stunning, and Ellen DeGeneres as the forgetful but loveable Dory (above in blue/yellow) is the real star here. She speaks whale.
