Finding Nemo 3-D

(G) ★★★★☆

This is not just another 3-D conversion; it’s an encore of modern animation’s gold standard. Clown fish Nemo (Alexander Gould) rebels from his overprotective dad (Albert Brooks) and winds up trapped in a dentist’s aquarium. Dad sets out to find his son with the help of an absent-minded blue tang named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres). Along the way, there are vegetarian sharks, surfer-dude sea turtles and the tank full of mentors (Willem Dafoe, Brad Garrett, Allison Janney). The conversion is all in the details, and this beautiful movie gets even better.

It’s the details that stand out whenever a classic film is converted to 3-D. With Finding Nemo 3D, the shimmering sea surface, the scratches on the lens of a diver’s goggles and the smudge marks Nemo the clown fish makes when he mashes against the glass wall of an aquarium all pop off the screen in the reissue of Pixar’s undisputed masterpiece. The fish seem to float between the surface of the screen and the deep-blue underwater backgrounds of the South Pacific, an effect even more pronounced in 3-D.
