Finding Nemo was another classic example of Pixar at it’s finest. I have yet to watch a bad movie they have released, but it is funny how emotional I get watching just about any of them. The story of “Finding Nemo” warmed our hearts during it’s initial release in 2003. Over the past near decade, the technology that Pixar has shown to the public is becoming remarkable, as seen in many films such as Monsters, Inc., Toy Story and most recently, Wall-E, Up and Brave. Pixar is now re-releasing many of their best creations on the bigger, badder, High-Definition-Crazzed generation of today and the quality of the picture is stunning.
I was given the chance to view this film in a complete HD and 3D experience recently. I’ll be honest, I am somewhat of a tech nerd. I do like all the latest and greatest and I myself, have a huge TV, surround sound and full THX experience at home. With that said, I still haven’t completely bought into the 3D experience at home yet. I do own a 3D Bluray player and I do find myself enjoying the movies, but it has only really been the past 6 to 8 months I find myself needing more from the 3D world. Pixar is surely delivering. Up until recently the Bluray 3D market has not been many titles. The 3D movies are now being reintroduced and also more affordable! Many Pixar movie packs now come with a 3D Bluray, HD Bluray and a standard DVD for all enjoyment in any household, now THAT is the way to buy movies!
Finding Nemo was a great story from it’s original air, and to see it again in 3D was remarkable. I am awaiting until it becomes available for home purchase on December 4th, 2012, but you can now come see it on the big screen in HD 3D at your local theaters starting on September 14th, 2012.
