"While the blogosphere rips apart Pixar for selling out for earmarking a "Finding Nemo" sequel for humbled writer-director Andrew Stanton's return to filmmaking--which is absurd, as Pixar can be counted on to produce better sequels than most, i.e. "Toy Story" 2 and 3--I will be sitting in a theater on September 14 to see the 3-D version of "Nemo."

While the blogosphere rips apart Pixar for selling out for earmarking a "Finding Nemo" sequel for humbled writer-director Andrew Stanton's return to filmmaking--which is absurd, as Pixar can be counted on to produce better sequels than most, i.e. "Toy Story" 2 and 3--I for one will be sitting in an air conditioned theater on September 14 to see the 3-D version of “Finding Nemo." 

CG animation converts beautifully to 3-D, and Pixar will do it right. They recently held the 3-D film's first screening --for the Olympic swim team (above) --on July 12 in Knoxville, Tennessee. 

My fave Pixar movie (how to choose?), also one of the best-reviewed movies ever, will go out for the first time in high-definition Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and Digital platforms on December 4, 2012.
