Video: How Does the Disc Look?
Disney has gone all-out with both the 2D and 3D 1.78:1 1080p transfers here - the results are simply breathtaking. Color quality is magnificent - deep blues, blistering oranges, lush greens and rich reds leap off the screen, perfectly saturated and free from any noise or bleeding. The sense of depth here is often amazing - it is, literally, like looking at a fish tank (and the spatial presence that the 3D transfer provides is quite immersive). The image is sharp and detailed, and even darker scenes flush with fine textures and no jaggedness or rough edges to destroy the illusion. There is maybe a slight hint of inconsistency in terms of banding, but it's hardly worth noting. Finding Nemo on 3D Blu-ray may fall short of being perfectly reference-quality in terms of video presentation, but it's nevertheless impressive.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
The oceans - and fish tanks - of Nemo come alive with a highly engaging, fully 360-degree Dolby TrueHD 7.1 sound mix that will silence even the most discerning skeptics. What most impresses is subtle ambience - whooshes, burbles and flapping fins emanate from all channels. Frequency response and dialogue recording is predictably perfect. The .1 LFE is also very strong, pure and powerful. And don't be fooled that this is family film - despite the lack of big action scenes and explosions, turn this one up loud - all the better to hear how much love and care obviously went into the creation of this track. Top marks.
English, French, and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 EX tracks are included, as are English SDH, French, and Spanish subtitles.
