Finding Nemo

· culture ·

I finally got around to seeing Finding Nemo today, and was really stunned by it. The quality of the animation--as always with Pixar films--was breathtaking. Every second, you could see weeks of painstaking animation work and rendering just flashing by in the background. I got the feeling that--as with the rotating cube effect for fast user switching--they just did it because they could. It was very funny (with plenty of jokes for both adults and children), and the plot raced along at a tremendous pace. What I didn't really expect was that it would be so educational. I'm convinced that you could probably learn a fair amount of marine biology and dentistry from watching this film. I mean, how many other animations have you seen that include the phrase sub-oesophageal ganglion?
