Finding Nemo (2 Disc Collector's Edition) [DVD] [2&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Albert Brooks
4 of 5 people found the following review helpful
If you're a fan of Pixar's previous efforts (Monsters, Inc.; Toy Story etc) you'll be expecting state of the art animation, a cracking story and a great script voiced by top quality actors. You won't be disappointed here: this is probably the best yet and appeals to children and adults alike. The animation is simply incredible but what makes the biggest impression is the quality of direction and the pace of the story. Writer/director Andrew Stanton wisely steers clear of mawkish sentimentality and aims for a simple tale of a little fish (i.e boy) who gets lost and then found by his dad.

It's a tad rough but Geddy sings better than ever, you can actually hear Alex more clearly than for some time on a live Rush album and Neil is, er Neil (i.e. the best drummer on the planet. Buy it by the… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely essential!, 25 Nov 2003
So much has been written about Led Zeppelin that its difficult to find an original angle to write about- but all you need to know is that Physical Graffiti is a towering achievement in rock records and a frequent member of most top 50 albums of all time. Its fair to say that this was Zep at their absolute best- it couldn't and wasn't surpassed after this. I first had this in vinyl in 1981 and remains a frequent player in my house to this day. The unitiated listener will be surprised by the sheer variety on this record- plenty of blues influences (Custard Pie, In My Time of Dying) but with funk, folk, pop, and anything else you care to think of. It was conceived at a time when punk wasn't so… Read more
