Transcript of Finding Nemo Movie Review Assignment

3rd Person
Point of View

Finding Nemo

Antagonists
Apotheosis
Metaphor
Nemo is taken to a dentist's aquarium where he meets other fish who call themselves the "Tank Gang" and together they plot an escape.

Meanwhile, Marlin sets out to find Nemo and meets a Blue Tang named Dory that has short-term memory loss.

Together they cross the ocean to rescue Nemo and experience many dangerous adventures and new friendships along the way.
Marlin gives Nemo independence by allowing him to help save Dory and the other fish from being caught in the net of the fishing boat.
Symbolism
Marlin is an overprotective Clown Fish and his only son named Nemo was born with a deformed fin that made it harder for him to swim.

Marlin is always afraid that something bad is going to happen, and on the first day of school he embarrasses Nemo in front of his new friends...

Nemo disobeys his dad by swimming past the drop off area and gets captured by a scuba diver.

Plot
Allusion
Hyperbole
(exaggeration)
Irony
Euphemism
Foreshadowing
Director
As well as sea preditors and the dentist, Nemo was a gift to Darla, known as ''The Fish Killer''
"Just keep swimming" is often mentioned in the movie and can be a metaphor for "Just keep trying" not to give up when things get tough.
After Dory meets Nemo, she reads a pipe that says "Sydney", and suddenly flashsbacks to her journey with Marlin then knows she has to get Nemo back to Marlin.
Fish Eaters Anonymous Club

"Fish Are Friends Not Food" A support group for sharks who don't want to eat fish...
The turtle says "like totally dude, now give me some fin."
Meaning
"Cool, shake my hand."
The clown fish was not funny.

The seahorse was allergic to water.

The meat eating sharks were trying to be vegetarians.

The pelican was friends with the fish and he helps Marlin and Dory find Nemo.
The dentist said,
"I'm gonna see a man about a wallaby."

Meaning
"I'm going to use the restroom."
The Tank Gang is trying to help Nemo escape the small net by swimming down to get out...
This foreshadows Nemo and Dory escaping from the large boat net.
Two time Academy Award winner Andrew Stanton was born in Rockport Massachusetts on December 3, 1965. He is a writer, director, and voice actor for several Pixar films.
Conclusion
This is a great movie that has many pretty underwater scenes. It is funny to both kids and adults.
You learn that if you set your mind to it, you can do anything even when you are scared.
This also teaches how we should accept others just the way they are.

I recommend this movie because it is funny and interesting and you can learn a lot from it.
