Time Changer (2002)




7/10



Starring
D. David Morin
Gavin MacLeod


Directed by Rich Christiano


Good Christian movies are hard to find, Time changer is one Sci-Fi comedy Christian film that made me take some time to think about my life and look ahead into the future saying, “for me to live is Christ and to die is gain”. It made know that the devil is trying to take the name of Christ away from all we do and leave behind the false believe that morals is all I need to live a righteous life.

Written, directed and produced by Rich Christiano and it falls mainly in the genre of a dramedy. When you decided to watch this film accept in your heart that you are sitting down to watch a Christian movie that is the only way you can really enjoy and appreciate the art. But if you are in search for a Sci-Fi movie with accurate scientific facts then maybe you should take the time to go watch Star Wars and its kind. Time Changer is about our Lord Jesus Christ and the benefits of having him in our daily lives, with the recent fear for approval and acceptance in this world we live in, many times we leave out the name of Jesus from our conversations so as to not scare off those we are talking to, something the movie condemns.

In reality the plot has holes, if that is what you want to know, but the plot is straight forward fun: Set in 1890, a Bible professor Russell Carlisle (D. David Morin) wrote a book titled The Changing Times, which promotes good morals without discussing Christ. His publishers believe the book is going to have a good sale if he (Carlisle) can get the board of the Grace Bible Seminary where he teaches to endorse the book.

At the Seminary, all but one of the board members did not support the book endorsement Dr. Norris Anderson (Gavin MacLeod) without unanimous support by the board members, his book will not be endorsed by the Seminary.

Carlisle is outraged that Norris will stand against his book publication, but Norris tells him that you can't teach morals without discussing Christ that if Carlisle pushes such out into the market it will start to destroy society as a whole.

Norris father had built a time machine (ok, now I know this sounds lame and out of place, but the movie is good), which Norris himself had used to see the future (our present) so he was able to convince Carlisle who thought Norris was raving mad talking about a time machine, but just stands (as Norris starts to operate some levers) to prove to Norris that such talk is ludicrous and time travel is not possible, but as Norris pulls the last lever Carlisle finds himself in the 21st century (our present day).

Time Changer is a good Christian film, one that Christians should take the time to watch and appreciate.

The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939)




7/10



Starring
Basil Rathbone
Nigel Bruce
Richard Greene
Wendy Barrie


Directed by Sidney Lanfield




Basil Rathbone portrayal of the great detective Sherlock Holmes is one of the most popular and this adaptation of the popular The Hound of the Baskervilles is the nearest in accuracy that I have seen of the book, recurring that I have seen the modern British Sherlock series do a version of the Hound of Baskerville, which digressed a lot to the use of drugs to portray the intensity of the hound’s presence.

Many differences can be seen when watching this movie adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s, Sherlock Holmes’s The Hound of the Baskervilles, from the role of Beryl Stapleton (she is portrayed here by Wendy Barrie), to some other screenplay differences. That being said, this 1939 movie is one that is straight to the heart captivating, it starts with a high note, introducing us to the characters and the case at hand, it then goes smoothly down to the case and how Holmes was intending to solve it, adding the suspense that the book had, as we the viewers as well as Dr Watson (Nigel Bruce) has to wait till Holmes tells us what he has been able to deduce.

Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and Dr. John Watson (Nigel Bruce) receive a visit from Dr. Mortimer (Lionel Atwill), who wishes to consult them before the arrival of Sir Henry Baskerville (Richard Greene). Sir Henry is the last of the Baskervilles and heir to the Baskerville estate in Devonshire.

But Dr. Mortimer tells Holmes of a legend, the legend of the Hound of the Baskervilles, a demonic dog that first killed Sir Hugo Baskerville hundreds of  years ago and the same dog is believed to kill all Baskervilles that stay in the Devonshire, in which Sir Henry will lodge.

The screenplay of any book adaptation is one that needs to be judged carefully, even after reading such a book, you still have to have it in the back of your mind that not all that is written can or should be adapted on screen, in such a case the screenplay has to be well glued together not making you feel like something is off. The 1939 Hound of the Baskervilles has such a screenplay that makes you not feel lost, they did their best to tie up loose ends and make you the view feel a sense of closing as the movie itself ends.

Not many of the Basil Rathbone’s Sherlock Holmes portrayal can be found in the market, but if you do search the online market hard you should be able to come across some at a good price although some are said to be on the public domain; as I to will continue the search to see if I can see all fourteen of the duo of Basil Rathbone and Niguel Bruce.

Alice in Wonderland (1951)



6/10



Starring the voice of
Kathryn Beaumont
Ed Wynn
Richard Haydn



Disney’s Alice in wonderland is colorful and wonderful, introducing many characters and lots of fun, that decades after they will be remembered. The movie is an adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and the movie did borrow some additional elements and plots from Carroll's follow up to Alice's wonderland adventure, Through the Looking Glass.

Disney like many kids his age grew up reading Lewis Carroll’s books and during his desire to break into animation making, Disney did a short loosely based on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the short was part of a series he made called Newman’s laugh-o grams.
When the Laugh-o gram series ended, Disney sourced for distributors for his idea called Alice’s Comedies which he used the loosely based Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland short from the laugh-o gram to pitch the series (Alice’s Comedies, was a live action meet animation series), he finally did find distributors and the series was done and it ran from 1924 to 1927.

After the success of Snow White, Disney then wanted to put his Alice Comedies into work, this time having the movie based more closely to its original work, after drafts and reels of the movie were being done to no approval by Disney the idea was shelved, then after World War II it was brought up again, this time Disney was determined to get it done and he saw to it that it was.

Alice in Wonderland is Disney's 13th animated feature, but it was not well received at its time of release and it didn’t do well in the box office either. This was mostly due to the uneven pace of the movie and Alice character herself was portrayed as a rock solid girl with a heart of a lion. The story plot is about a young girl named Alice (Kathryn Beaumont who also voiced Wendy Darling in Disney's 1953 Peter Pan animation) who visited a land where things were not normal and the abnormal was normal, she soon discovered that being in such a place was lonely and dreadful.



Funny enough, it is such reasons that the movie has become well received today, after its disappointing box office time, Disney didn't re-release the movie as he did his other animations, but sometime after his death and due to the time when drug use was becoming more apparent in the world, The movie found itself in vogue with the times, which later caused Disney to do a re-release of the movie in 1974 which was successful.

As said the movie has grown to be loved and respected, many homes have the DVD of the Disney masterpiece and it does stand as a grand adventure that kids and adult alike can watch and embark on.

Toy Story 3 (2010)



8/10



Starring the voice of
Tom Hanks
Tim Allen
Joan Cusack



Directed by Lee Unkrich



After the dual success of Toy Story (1995) and ToyStory 2 (1999), when the production of Toy Story 3 was announced many like me were not surprised, but I didn’t expect much, thinking what will be the next adventure for this crew. When the movie commenced with shots of Andy at his young age, I was smiling as it was good to see him all happy and his toys complete. Then it fades to show us Andy all grown up and ready for college, with the toys eager for some playtime with him. This new Toy Story animation had our Toys go through a stage when their owners are too old to play with them, and our toys got mistakenly donated to a Day Care, with Woody wanting them to go back to Andy’s who wants to move them to the Attic.

The new story of Toy Story 3, made me raise an eye brow as I was eager to see what was going to happen next; it was from that point I knew this was going to be a fun ride, and a fun ride it truly was. The removal of some of the old characters and the addition of some new characters, added to the fun. Disney/Pixar Toy Story 3 had it all, then there is the climactic scene near the ending where all of Andy’s toys were at a junkyard and with all heading to a sure doom, they held hands ready to go down together. I remember the feeling I got when watching that scene; I was like, “something better happen to save these guys.”

With Disney’s acquisition of Pixar in 2006, saw John Lasseter rise to be in charge of all Disney animation production, this gave more room to the production crew unlike the tight schedule and the back and forth talk they had to face while working on Toy Story 2. John Lasseter who directed the first two Toy Stories, stepped down from directing this one, because of the production of Cars 2 was in progress at that time and he was directing it. So Toy Story 2's co-director, Lee Unkrich was the sole director of this film, and he did a good work as this movie can stand beside the previous two, with its head held up high.

Toy Story 3 won the Oscar for Best Animated feature and another for Best Original song, it became the highest grossing animation ever, grossing over 1 billion dollars and if you have taken the time to see the previous two Toy Stories then there is no reason you shouldn’t see this one.

Toy Story 2 (1999)



8/10



Starring the voice of
Tom Hanks
Tim Allen
Joan Cusack
Kelsey Grammer


Directed by John Lasseter



After the success of their first movie together, Disney/Pixar went ahead to make many more movies together, but soon they returned to the movie that started it all, Toy Story, but Disney’s initial plan was for Toy Story 2 to be a home video, but upon reading the script and seeing the reels they noticed the possibilities of another blockbuster lurks, so Disney pumped money into it, recalled the voice cast and Toy Story 2 was made, a wonderful additional to its 1995 original.

Toy Story 2, picks up from where the last one stopped, and it didn’t neglect to let us know that Andy himself is getting older; the puppy and the Mrs Potatoe Head toy mentioned at the end of the first film are also featured in this movie, their addition to the clan, was so well done that you will not feel like they were crowding. Then the adventure in this movie is not a Woody trying to clear himself, it is a save woody adventure. The movie’s directing is just as good as the first, the score not so great but it is negligible and the CGI is upgraded.

The movie plot sees Woody (Tom Hanks) get stolen by a collector, the other toys noticed this theft and with Buzz (Tim Allen) hell bend to save Woody, recruited some other toys: Rex, Mr Potatoe Head, Slinky Dog and Hamm the piggy bank on a journey to go save Woody from his captor.

The crew that went to save Woody made the movie for me; their addition took the scope away from what the first movie was all about, Woody and Buzz. This movie too is about Woody but now some other toys too are involved in this outside rescue.

The idea for a sequel was being put together after the release of the first, but production faced a lot of hiccups on the way mostly due to Disney’s set release date of the film costing Pixar to work at a fast pace to meet the set release date. The movie story had a lot of recycled ideas that were in the draft of the first film, which were discarded. This ideas included but not limited to, the obsessive toy collector, who here in this movie is the main antagonist (Sid Philips, Andy’s former neighbor before they moved was the first movie’santagonist).

Upon its release Toy Story 2 cost 90 million dollars to make and it recruited over 480 million from the box office making it a commercial success. The high approval rating of the film puts it in the league of movies (rare movies) whose sequels are regarded to be just as good as the original or even better.

Toy Story 2 is a fun and great movie.

Pitch Perfect (2012)



6/10



Starring
Anna Kendrick
Brittany Snow
Skylar Astin
Anna Camp


Directed by Jason Moore


I really don’t like chick flicks, they are all too predictable and at the very end they don’t surprise you. Pitch Perfect is not that different from any other chick flick I know, but it was fun watching, the build up to the grand ending is the same as others, but the comedy is more matured and that made it easy to receive, other than the weak dialogues and lame script writing that are common in other chick flicks. I recommend that a guy should watch this with a girl.

The thing that first turned me off in this movie was when I saw them singing, (I really don’t like chick flicks and I hate music competition films) I just sat at the cinema hall thinking yikes!!! Then things started to turn and then I actually found myself laughing, the comedy that Pitch Perfect brings is very entertaining. It makes you over look the strings and loose ends in the movie.

The funny thing about this movie again is that it is actually a non-fictional story, based on a novel of the same name by Mickey Rapkin. The movie stars Anna Kendrick (50/50 (2011)) as the lead in this college flick and it was produced by Elizabeth Banks (Man on a Ledge (2012)) who also can seen in this movie as she plays one of the commentators alongside John Michael Higgins (We Bought A Zoo (2011)).

The movie is about two a cappella groups from a university but kind of like focuses on one of them, The Bellas and all female a cappella group, who recruited new girls into their group after their previous year disappointment, which led to them losing all but their two lead members.

Beca (Anna Kendrick) joins The Bellas, and starts to shake things around a little, causing one of the lead members Aubrey (who is controlling) wanting to get Beca off the team as soon as possible, so she can regain full control of her group.

The movie is directed by first timer movie director Jason Moore who is a regular stage and TV director, who in my view needs to work on his movie direction too, because the movie directorial was kind of weak, there were incidents where things happen for no reason what so ever. The lead girl Beca (Anna Kendrick) who happens to be a DJ, but all throughout the movie her DJ skills are not in any other way influential in the movie plot as a whole. Then the cheap Apple Macbook advert, comon we the viewers are not that dumb.

Pitch Perfect made a good bunch from the box office making more than 84 million dollars compared to its 17 million production cost and it is highly rated having a 80% approval ratings from critics in the review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes. Pitch Perfect is a perfect chick flick, but guys can have fun watching this too.

Back To The Future (1985)



8/10



Starring
Michael J Fox
Christopher Lloyd
Lea Thompson


Directed by Robert Zemeckis



Back to the future is one movie that contains excellent visual effects, a nice story plot and the directing is just excellent. The movie has a beautiful screenplay, and the movie puts the full stop in the statement, “never a dull moment.”

Michael J Fox was the desired man cast to play the lead role Marty McFly, but he turned it down due to scheduling conflicts, so Eric Soltz was cast in his place. After filming had begun, Zemeckis and Spielberg felt Soltz was not portraying the character well enough and knew this was a casting error, so they had to re-cast and ask Fox to try and make time to be in the movie. So Fox had to re-arrange his schedule time to be able to shoot Family Ties (TV Series) and the movie at the same time, this recasting meant, an extra 3 million production cost, as all the scenes that Eric had done had to be redone and Fox was so busy, that it was said that he only got 5 hours of sleep a day at the time.

Marty McFly (Michael J Fox) is a teenager from the Eighties who befriends a slightly coco scientist Doctor Brown (Christopher Lloyd). During one of their meetings Doctor Brown mistakenly (due to an accident) sends Marty 30 years into the past, 1955 to be exact.

Marty while in the past, mistakenly interrupts his parents meeting and he must find a way to fix it or else he will no longer exist. He also has to help the Doctor Brown of 1955 get him (Marty) Back to the future.

Back to the Future was a financial success the movie’s 100 days production cost was 19 million dollars (including the recasting cost) and it made over 380 million dollars in the box office. It was also a critical acclaim winning an Oscar for Best Sounding Editing.

The balance in this movie is what makes it a most watch the movie’s transgression from comic to science fiction to romance/drama, is what makes it such a most watch, it takes its time to explain even the complexity of time travel, that at the end even with the slightest of details that made no sense I actually was convinced and doubted not that Doctor Brown did it.

Back to the Future is a movie hit for all to see and enjoy, it was that good that two sequels were added to it, Back to the Future II and Back to the Future III although the release dates for the sequels were 1989 and 1990 respectively all maintained the time of 1985 when the first time travel happened. So in the end of Back to the Future III, we were back in 1985.

Top 25 Disney Animations (So Far)




Walt Disney have independently produced or partnered with Pixar to give us some of the best animations of all time.

This list has many of the great animations from Disney’s early years (1937 - 1988) and their Renaissance era (1989 – 1999), but whether we must admit Walt Disney animation studio have bounced back and are now creating new masterpieces.

This list may be short of good movies like, Mulan (1998), Bolt (2008) or that memorable Peter Pan (1953). But since we must list 25, some of your favorites will be left out so feel free to let us know which we forgot.

Here is our top 25 so far





25.

Beauty and the beast (1991)






Great sing along songs to jive too, memorable characters and all round enjoyable screenplay, Disney’s take on the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast is different, enjoyable and one of the best adaptations there is.
The animation itself is a magical journey with enough stops at musical entertainment to make it easy to keep up with the what is going on. This Broadway musical blend is one of the best that Disney created in the Renaissance era and their further adaption into live-action of this same tale is also one of the best adaptations they have done.



24.

Lady and the Tramp (1955)






Lady lives with a refined fairly wealthy couple who pampers and cares for her, while Tramp was a stray who has gone accustomed to life on the streets.

The animation focuses on how the two met, and the romantic adventures they got into and how they grew to love one another and be there for each other.



23.

The Emperor's New Groove (2000)







The Emperor's New Groove was released in 2000 and in the same year Disney also released before it, Fantasia and Dinosaur. The Emperor's New Groove was Disney’s 40th animated feature film, and it is one animation you can watch and not get tired of. The production was done to be straight to the point, and the movie shed away the weights of having to many characters.
Just two leads, one human Pacha and the other which has been turned into a llama Kuzco.
The bonding between the two lead characters is what is magical about this ride and the rate of selfishness of the arrogant young Incan emperor named Kuzco was something better seen than heard. It was his selfishness and cruelty that made it hard to feel pity for him when his adviser, Yzma turned him into a llama to gain rule over the country.




22.

Alice in Wonderland (1951)






Walt Disney like many kids his age grew up reading Lewis Carroll’s books and during his desire to break into animation making, Disney did a short loosely based on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the short was part of a series he made called Newman’s laugh-o grams.
When the Laugh-o gram series ended, Disney sourced for distributors for his idea called Alice’s Comedies which he used the loosely based Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland short from the laugh-o gram to pitch the series (Alice’s Comedies, was a live action meet animation series), he finally did find distributors and the series was done and it ran from 1924 to 1927.

After the success of Snow White, Disney then wanted to put his Alice Comedies into work, this time having the movie based more closely to its original work.




21.

The Little Mermaid (1989)






The Little Mermaid is the 28th Disney animated feature film, and this animated musical fantasy film is credited as the film that brought Disney animation back to the limelight.
The plot is based on Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, “The Little Mermaid.” The book was about a young mermaid who is willing to give up her life in the sea and her identity as a mermaid to gain a human soul.
Disney took the tale from the book and turned it all around.




20.

One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961)






With one of the most iconic villains in the whole world of villains, Cruella De Vil made this movie spectacular. Yes, there was the fun of seeing spotted pups moving around in the snow trying to get home. The adventure of trying to make it back home while being chased by two hard heads wanting to kill these beautiful dogs. Then there was the love and romance between the lead human characters and the lead dogs. All of this does not add up to the beautiful song, when the lead male character wrote a song on the fly when he met Cruella De Vil. Nor does it take the power off the iconic villain herself.



19.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)





Disney’s first full length animated feature is just masterful, the thing is, it is so good that it is very hard to believe that this is the first, the one that began the Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty and The Beast Tarzan and more. The movie boasts of a score that you will love and come to respect. Disney’s beginning was so good that you just have to dip your hat to the dream of Walt Disney himself.




18.

Wreck-It Ralph (2012)






The movie is full of entertainment and will appeal to a wide audience of both young and old, the video game references will be well received by older viewers, the younger viewers will love the rest the movie has to offer.
The movie takes me back to the old days when graphics wasn’t key when making a video game, just fun. I loved seeing M Bison and Zangief from Street Fighter.

Wreck-It Ralph is a complete package of laughter, fun and some deep emotional tone good for everyone.



17.

The Jungle Book (1967)





The last animated movie produced by Walt Disney also ranks as one of the best animated production from the mouse house.
The movie has it all, songs, comedy, action, drama and love. What is there not to like in watching this animated feature?

You can watch it now (based on that fact you have seen it as a child) and still find yourself singing along.



16.

Tangled (2010)






When you get to see Tangled you will be left laughing hard at the comedic adventure, which makes this animation one you will love to see more than once.

Much of the praise in this movie goes to the character development, Rapunzel was a tough lady and not your everyday princess waiting to be rescued. Her core driving force was to be able to prove she could take care of herself in the real world, regardless that she has never really experienced living in it.


15.

Frozen (2013)





I grew up on the Disney musical classics, and I loved them all, the songs were easy to sing along to and were catchy. As time passed we all got old, and Disney kind of lost their grasp on the whole musical thing, they started to produce nonmusical animations some of which struggled in the box office.
Then along came Tangled which was good enough and a nice introduction back to the old musicals. Disney studios dusted through their shelf, to find this long awaited release, started production on it and the rest is history.
Now the whole world in 2013 could not stop singing "Let it go."



14.

Aladin (1992)





Aladdin is a Disney cartoon with a character that we all wish we had as friend, the genie. Aladdin is filled with endless thrills, table turning plans and music that you can’t help to like and sing along to. The movie’s intro is in form of a narrative, where a merchant tells us the tale of Aladdin and his magic lamp.



13.

Robin Hood (1973)






They have been many animated adaptations of Robin Hood’s story. There have also been many adaptions of stories where anthropomorphic animals rather than humans are used to depict the characters. Disney’s 1973 animation Robin Hood is the best of both worlds.
The animation did justice to memorable plotlines, memorable characters, memorable songs and entertaining subplots.
For me this animation has not gotten the needed recognition it deserves, and many will have forgotten that it was done.
Here stands one of the best retelling of the local British folk hero.



12.

Hercules (1997)








All you have to do is see it once and the numerous catchphrases in the animated movie will stick to you. Hercules is one of Disney’s memorable animated movies and it is part of the last three feature animated film during their Renaissance Era, followed by Mulan (1998) and Tarzan (1999).

Hercules is funny, action packed and with such a deep mysterious tale that on first watch it was hard to pinpoint how the movie was going to go.
Very loosely based on the legendary Greek hero Heracles (known by his Roman name, Hercules) this Disney movie is their 35th animated feature film. It has a great voice performance from James Woods, who is voiced of Hades.



11.

Inside Out (2015)







When Pixar did Finding Nemo (2003)I delayed in seeing it because I was wondering a movie about fish, how good can it get, but after seeing it I never doubted their capability. Here is a movie I thought will struggle to get along, after seeing this movie, anyone who dulls or drags their feet to see it is the one who is missing out.

Disney/Pixar’s 15th 3D computer animated full length movie Inside Out... I have to say is amazing. Every moment in the movie is intriguing the best thing about this movie is, everything seemed new.



10.

WALL-E (2008)






WALL-E is just a sweet movie, which deals on the loneliness and determination of a singular robot that developed sentience while watching videos of human interaction and listening to music.


9.


The Incredibles (2004) 






This is my bankable companion for action, The Incredibles is an action packed and comedy filled computer animation superhero film, which juggles between the superhero life and the suburban life.


8.


Monster's Inc. (2001)







Nothing warms me more for laughs than anytime I get to sit down and watch Monster’s Inc. This is one Pixar animation that I hold dear to heart, I loved it so much that I didn’t desire for them to make a sequel, because I felt they will wreck what is already a masterpiece.



7.


Finding Dory (2016)






Finding Dory is the long awaited follow up to Disney/Pixar 2003 computer animated comedy adventure, Finding Nemo. At the time of Finding Nemo’s release it was number 1 in the highest grossing animation of all time.
The magic of Finding Nemo can be found in memorable characters that make up the adventure of a fish searching the whole ocean for his son. Each character from the movie had a specific view and twist from being normal, this made the lead characters Marlin, Dory and Nemo fit in perfectly as we are taking on a wonderful journey under the sea.
So, from the get go, Disney had the characters with a perfect foundation for this sequel. Now the focus in this sequel is on Dory as you could have guessed from the title, but her new family Marlin and Nemo were in for the ride.



6.


The Many Adventures of Winne the Pooh (1977)






Pooh is my favorite Disney Character and I just don’t know why. His ability to make every problem minuet to his lack of honey is one that makes me laugh every time.


5.


Tarzan (1999)






The script is dynamic, although you have read the book and seen various cartoons depicting this hero of the jungle, Disney’s version just kept changing as the acts go by.

If by any chance you are reading this and haven’t seen this movie, then where have you been?


4.



Toy Story (1995)






Every child dreams of his toys coming to life and playing back, but the main idea has always been what it will be like if toys did come to life. Well Toy Story answered that question in a more enlighten way that made you eager to see more of the adventures Andy’s toys were getting into. Toy Story has a masterpiece storyline that makes you just sit and wonder, the screenplay that blends this toy acts to human interaction is so well done, that if not that the fact that this can’t be true, this movie may make kids think this is possible.


3.


The Lion King (1994)






Hakuna Matata, the catchphrase that this movie made many say for years, the movie is full of action and fun, that has made it one of the best 2D animation one could see.


2.


Zootopia (2016)






Packing more laughs than an average animation should, Zootopia also has a message for you:
Keep believing in yourself when nobody else will and be a doer not a viewer. Another message from the movie I truly admired was when Hopp refused to see her current position as a meter-maid as a stepdown from her dream, she made sure she was the best meter-maid there was and when an opportunity made itself available to do more she did.


1.


Finding Nemo (2003)






Since the day I saw this movie it has always stood as my all time best animation and my all time Disney favorite. It is funny, entertaining and captivating as we watch a father clown fish Marlin (Albert Brooks) is thrown into a state of desperation to save his son and he goes through all form of adventures in his dying need to make sure he keeps his promise of letting nothing happen to him, his son Nemo (Alexander Gould). Nemo was captured by underwater divers, and taken to Sydney. So Marlin (Nemo’s Father) went on an unwilling adventure to save his son, with him was Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) a fish who suffers from short term memory loss.

There is not much to add but this is a classic that all should see, not because of the high ratings and the accolades and records that it holds, but for the gentle breeze of a cool soothing story that can only bring smiles to the face of any viewer.
