Finding Nemo (2003)

Nemo the Noisy

After his wife died Marlin (Albert Brooks), a clownfish, has been over protective of his sole son, Nemo (Alexander Gould) and of course when Nemo has his first day at school he is panicky. And rightly so as when Nemo decides to be a typical kid he ends up being caught by a diver who takes him to his office where he has an aquarium in his dental surgery. But there is no way Marlin is going to lose his only son and with the aid of Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), a forgetful blue Tang fish, they on a quest to find Nemo which will see them encounter a Sea Tortoise called Crush (Andrew Stanton) and Bruce the Great White Shark (Barry Humphries).

I thought it was just me as back in 2003 when "Finding Nemo" I thought it looked good, it was funny and entertaining but I thought what a racket and it has taken over a decade, not really looking but to stumble across someone else who felt the same. Maybe there was something going on in the world of cinema back in 2003 where there was some sort of new sound technology being used in cinema's but for some reason "Finding Nemo" has always come across as a loud movie full of noises competing with each other for attention and with the ability to induce a headache for being so.

It is a shame I feel like that because there is a lot to love about "Finding Nemo" especially when it comes to the characters of Marlin and Dory as the comedy of Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres makes the movie. And that is a big thing to say as "Finding Nemo" has a brilliant cast of comedians all of whom do a fantastic job of putting a bit of themselves into their characters so they are recognizable especially Brad Garrett with his deep voice. But in many ways it is because there are so many voices that at times it does become noise competing for attention.

What this all boils down to is that "Finding Nemo" has always been a good animation with a lot of fun coming from the great choice of actors do voice the characters. But at the same time "Finding Nemo" has to be one of the noisiest animations going.
