The trailer before The Amazing Spider-Man for the 3-D release of Finding Nemo worried me, as it made the film look grainy and murky. However, that worry was dispelled in the opening moments of this re-release of one of Disney/Pixar’s most-beloved films. Even though the 3-D transfer is just another money-grab—nothing of note “physically” pops out—the colors and digital animation come alive in this conversion. Even though Finding Nemo is almost a decade old, the animation and the script are still as vibrant and fresh as they were in 2003. Nemo has aged well—and may be even better now than it was when it first came out.
