Throughout American history, the belief of hard work and perseverance has been consistently demonstrated. In John F. Kennedy's ¨Inaugural Address¨ and the film Finding Nemo, the idea of perseverance is prevalent throughout the two pieces of work. Kennedy wanted to empower the American people, speaking of the challenges to come and the work needed to be put forth. The characters in Finding Nemo displayed perseverance by risking their lives to save someone dear to them. Even though both Kennedy and the characters in Finding Nemo are showing perseverance in drastically different situations, they both express the same thoughts and beliefs synonymous with perseverance.
Finding Nemo is a family friendly and crazy movie. The movie displays what family should do for each other and are generally willing to go through to save each other. The movie came out in mid 2003 and was a huge hit with just about every family that watched it. Finding Nemo is a great example of a hero’s journey, because the story tells us from the time that Marlin goes on his first adventure all the way to his freedom to live.
It all started with one fish who decide to touch the ¨butt¨. One fish at school got challenged to swim out and touch the bottom of a boat. With no fear in mind, Nemo went and touched the boat. Nemo thought he had an easy victory when something happened and changed his life forever. Nemo is the son of a brave dad named Marlin. Marlin suffered a miserable loss of his wife and all their children. Nemo is the only family member Marlin has left so Marlin pledges to keep Nemo safe at all costs. In the film ¨Finding Nemo¨ the author Andrew Stanton uses good and evil through the journey to criticise how we as humans value the love we have for are family members because we share a strong bond with the people we enjoy.
Captain Nemo is a serious, slightly rude, dynamic character. He changes a lot throughout the book. At first, he is very introverted and likes to keep to himself. Around the end of the book, before he leaves the three guys on an island, he starts to reach out to others, especially Arronax. I think he started to get frightened that he would become attached to Arronax, and that's why he threw them off. He didn't want anything to get in the way of his explorations.
We all know the popular family movie “Finding Nemo” a kid’s movie that tells a journey of Marlin, a father clown fish, who crosses the vast ocean to find his son Nemo. During Marlin’s journey he comes across many new and scary things, but like any good children’s movie Marlin does eventually find his son Nemo and they go back home and live happily ever after. This all sounds good right? Wrong! Looking at this movie from a psychologist point of view, or in my case a psychology students’ point of view you slowly begin to realize from the moment the movie starts each and every one of the characters in this lovely kids movie is kind of messed up in their own special way.
Thoughts of drowning run rampant in every man’s mind on that boat. At dawn, the men decided that their only chance is to row toward the distant shore again and swim when the boat finally capsizes.
Finding Nemo has an unexpected twist, at the very beginning, when Marlin (Albert Brooks) and his wife’s eggs are attacked by a vicious shark and only Nemo’s remains. This result in a shock to the viewer, leaving them wanting to know and understand more. The movie quickly jumps forward from the negativity however, to an excited Nemo (Alexander Gould) on his way to school for the first time while his father is warning him about not straying
The motion picture we are applying or using is Pixar's "Finding Nemo". Our hero would be Marlin, the timid clownfish who lives safe and secluded in the colorful and warm tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef. After the devastating, life changing event when starting a family, specifically when a hostile fish devoured his wife and all his unborn kids, Marlin had been a cowardly, cautious individual who lacks socialism and simply "can't tell a joke". He limits, rescues, protects and controls Nemo, and expectations are low for Nemo's ability, due to his disability. He is somber, worried and agitated about every detail in Nemo's life. In fact, Marlin's life completely revolves around Nemo's life. Also, Marlin can't acknowledge or admit that
Nemo does not give up easily though and fearlessly decides that he must jam the tank filter to delay being taken out. This would help the fish find time to concoct a plan for Nemo to escape, one tankfish even states, “You have your whole life ahead of you.” (Stanton, Unkrich, x:xx). This scene shows that Nemo is willing to be brave in order to achieve a greater outcome. In fact, even old-timer tank-fish Gill says to Nemo, “That took guts, kid.” (Stanton,Unkrinch, x:xx) Towards the end of the story, Nemo’s courage is tested once again when an immense school of fish swim towards Nemo and Marlin’s friend Dory. Suddenly, a net comes and captures all the fish, including Dory. Nemo tells his dad, “I know what to do, we must tell all the fish to swim down together!’ Stanton (x:xx) Marlin tells his son that he does not want to lose him again. Further, in the heat of the moment, Nemo asks his dad to trust him as he goes into the net to try to save Dory and all the other
The movie then transitions to years later on Nemo’s first day of school. While ecstatic to meet his classmates, teacher, and the independence of going to school, Marlin ceases to let Nemo go smoothly due to his fear of losing his only son and the worry of his “lucky” fin (an injury acquired from the barracuda attack). After such trauma, Marlin is known to be “scared” of the ocean, filled with anxiety,
First, Marlin’s journey begins with the “call to adventure”. The call is when the hero is asked to leave the ordinary world to reach a specific goal. Our hero’s call begins when Nemo’s new friends dare him to go touch “the butt.” Nemo gets taken by a scuba diver and this leaves everybody speechless and panicking. This moment is the spark of Marlin’s Journey. After trying to chase the scuba diver, Marlin almost had
Captain Nemo first describes himself by saying “"I am not what you call a civilised man! I [am] done with society entirely, for reasons which I alone have the right of appreciating. I do not... obey its laws, and I desire you never to allude to them before me again!" (Verne, 57). The outright anger displayed by Nemo alludes to his hatred of society, and sheds light on the reasoning of his self imposed exile. Nemo’s efforts to separate himself and his men from society is shown in the burial process for his dead crew members. Instead of burying his men on land, Nemo buries them in a massive underwater burial, to keep them safe from “sharks and men” (Verne, 150). Out of respect toward the bodies and in an almost , Nemo believes it is just as important to keep the dead bodies out of the reach of humans as it is to prevent them from being eaten by sharks. Although Nemo goes through great effort to isolate himself from civilization, signs of compassion towards humanity in his character through his actions displayed at Vigo Bay. At the site of a great naval battle, Captain
I was watching Finding Nemo with my girlfriend, who is quite the Latin buff, when she said, “Did you know that “nemo” means “no one” or “nothing” in Latin?” That one little question sparked what I like to call “Operation Finding Nemo: A Conspiracy.” Together, we psychoanalyzed Pixar’s Finding Nemo and discovered the hidden meaning behind what appears to be a loving father/son story. The loveable little Nemo is only a figment of Marlin’s imagination.
The purpose of this essay is to watch the movie and try to view the main character from three personality theorists’ perspectives. In the movie Finding Nemo, Marlin was a clown fish who lost his son, Nemo, in the vast ocean. Along his journey to find his son, he ran into Dory, a blue tang fish who suffered from short term memory loss. Dory provided moral support and comfort in this search that Marlin has been missing for years. This essay will analyze Dory in the movie Finding Nemo through Carl Rogers self-actualization theory, Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs, and Friedman and Rosenman’s personality behavior type.
He tries to reel it in but he can't. Instead the fish is pulling the boat! He struggles and struggles with the fish for hours. After a while fatigue takes it's toll as his hands clamp up, and his back aches from the line tied around it. The fish surfaces and Santiago realizes that it is longer than the boat he is on! An unexpected jerk leaves a gash in his hand only to add to his pain. After a very long while Santiago shortens the line to harpoon it. He latches the fish to the side of the boat and begind to tow it back to shore triumphant. Then a mako shark approaches and takes a large bite out of the marlin. Santiago kills it with a harpoon. Only later did he realize that the sharks blood would attract more sharks. As more sharks approached Santiago fought with all his might to save his fish but there was too many sharks. By the time he got to shore, he had nothing more than a skeleton. Santiago collapses from exhaustion on the shore but is found by Manolin and calls for help. The community marveled at the size of the skeleton that is still attached to the boat. Manolin takes care of the old man and vows to return to him as an apprentice. Santiago finally gets the repect from his community.
