When Finding Nemo came back out in theaters in 3D I took Eva to go and see it. Finding Nemo is one of those movies that Eva loves to watch but at the same time she is afraid of it. Of course the sharks starting to frenzy in 3D is a bit terrifying even for parents, especially if you are terrified of sharks. But with the sharks aside (And I love that the Great White is named Bruce which was he name of the model shark in the movie Jaws) the movie is really cute and funny. Eva loves it because of Ellen and pretty much only likes those parts with her.

Finding Nemo is an adorable movie and for the first time it is available in High Definition in a Blu-Ray combo pack, there are a few versions out including a 3D version. We just got the straight up Blu-Ray and DVD version with an extra Blu-Ray with extra features. The extra features are a nice inclusion onto the set and the movie looks incredible in Hi-Def as well. It is certainly one we will continue to watch over and over, especially as we introduce Andrew to movies. Knowing him, he’ll probably laugh at the shark and not be afraid at all.

I have a couple of clips from the movie as well as some of the special feature clips to share as well as some fun activities. I’ll drop the activities her first and then the clips.

    Way back when Finding Nemo first came out I didn’t buy it because I didn’t have kids then. Now I’ve exposed my kids to everything Disney and Pixar on the planet so it’s only logical that this movie was also on the list. I decided to add it to my Blockbuster @ Home movie queue which is available through DISH and the movie should be here in the next day or two via mail. My favorite characters in the film are Dory and the turtles. My DISH co-worker likes the starfish whose name neither one of us can remember. I’m so excited to watch this movie with the kids and see the excitement on their faces.
