Well, to be fair, "Finding Nemo", and "Shark Tale" are two very different films. so a comparison really shouldn't be made between the two. ( except from a visual standpoint.)

"Antz" and "Bug's Life" were very similar in story and visual design. So comparisons can be drawn there.

I thought the preview looked cool.
Guess I'll have to go see for myself plus the kids want to see it.

Yeah. Def oscarbreeder. No offense to Rocket Season OR his opinion but I just don't take people's opinions anymore (especially the critics!!!!). I've seen too many movies that were supposed to be "horrible" and I ended up liking and vice versa. Everyone's taste is different.
Just like how one persons trash is anothers treasure.
I'll have to go see it for myself and will do.

I understand what you mean though, Rocket Season.. In order to have a good, rememberable movie, it must take on those certain qualities that you listed in your first post.
I mean, I still catch myself randomly laughing to myself while looking back on certain scenes in Finding Nemo. Now that's what makes a good movie!!!

I'll have to go see it for myself and will do.

The fact that the fish looked more like the actors voicing them more than fish made it a little too creepy for my tastes.. even if the movie ends up being good, I think that's still going to distract me.

I have not seen this movie so will give no opinion on it,
but I like it when they draw the charectors to look like the voices. Its a voice you know, and to see a "familer" face and/or features, I think adds to the appeal. Although, I dont like to loose the intended animal.... in this case fish.... when you cant tell what kind of fish it is... well, thats a little overboard

Me it's the opposite. I tend to blend the characters they played before and the ones they play in the current movie.

That would be nice, but they didn't really do to much of that "blending".

It was just general bad design.
