Finding Nemo: The greatest film ever?

Hey gang,

Well, I am a 3-D artist. So of course, I love Pixar's movie Finding Nemo. But since I am very, very new to the world of Marine fishkeeping, I am wondering what the rest of you think about the film. It's accuracy (and lack there of) and its portrayl of Marine Fishkeepers.

Personally, I have always wanted a Marine tank, and I was worried that the movie would make me think otherwise, thankfully it did not, and personally I do not think that it tried to portray Marine Fishkeeping in a bad light either.

But that is my opinion, whats yours?

From an artistic point of view, I think the movie was outstanding. I was especially impressed with the way they gave the characters facial expressions.

I don't know very much about SW fish, so I can't comment on the mix of species in the movie tank.

I was very troubled by the "all drains lead to the ocean" rubbish. No fish can survive being flushed down a drain into a municipal sewer system. To suggest otherwise in front of an audience of impressionable children was stupid and irresponsible, IMO.

I also love the movie, but there are a couple of things. One was mentioned above about the drains.
The other was the use of a Moorish Idol for an aquarium inhabitant. Shouldn't encourage people to try this fish. I had to talk my kids out of one. We got a pair of Heni Butterfly's instead...close enough.

Accuracy, Not very.

While the film was good I would not go as far as to give it the greatest film ever tag. If you take a look at the lounge you should find a few long topics on the movie.

Everyone knows that Monty Pythons Seach for the Holy Grail is the best movie ever! And for those of you who disagree, I have but one word --- NI!

hahaha. I watched that movie the other day. I have to tell you, I watched that movie so many times in my youth group. (years ago mind you.) I have seen that one more than any other. And it is hilarious. but It is sure not one of the top 5 movies ever. not even one of the top 50. sorry.

although really small rocks do tend to float.
