Finding Nemo???

I remember the time that I found him. He was still in the egg and my wife was no where to be found. Earlier in the day we swam down to the plethora of kids we were going to have and were deciding on what to name them. Coral my wife wanted at least one of the kids name to be Nemo. I preferred to keep it simple and wanted to name half of the kids Marlin Jr. and the other half Coral Jr. after both of our names. I really didn’t care at the time and in the back of my mind I liked the name Nemo. Well that evening we were outside our anemone. We just bought the house and we needed a place to raise the kids we were going to happen. We saw a huge fish on the horizon and it seemed hungry from my eyes and I never liked big fish being a little clownfish. I told Coral to get into the house but she didn’t listen she charged for the eggs and the fish did the same. I tried to protect her but the fish knocked me into a big rock and I blacked out.

I woke up sometime later in the same position I was in. I was dazed and confused but I recollected my thoughts and got up. I went searching for my wife and the kids but no matter where I looked I couldn’t find them. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw something. It was one of my eggs from earlier. I swam over and picked it up in my fins. I was happy at least there was one of them left so I wasn’t alone. I have had issues in the past with depression and loneliness. So I often made friends since a young age. Without hesitation I gave the egg his name and his name was Nemo.

A few years later I was sleeping when Nemo was jumping on my stomach telling me to get up because it was time for school. I got up and told him to get ready although I was worried that he was not ready for school. After him getting ready we left to the school. On the way there were beautiful colors all around us as we swam. We got to the first major street and it was busy as it could be.

We got to the stop for school with time to spare. I went by these fish who assumed I was funny but just because I am a clownfish do not mean I am funny. There were a few kids playing on sponges and bouncing around. One of the kids fell off and although I felt bad because of him being hurt I couldn’t help but laugh. All seemed fine I for once was happy although I was afraid for Nemo. Nemo wanted to play with kids that were in some person’s yard and I told him it was not safe for him to. I kept looking around because this was one of the first times I have really been out for a purpose. I felt an uneasy feeling coming from behind me so I turned to look. The fish from earlier came charging into me and I took off as fast as I could in the opposite direction.

I swam as fast as I could till I ran into the school person. He asked what was wrong with me and I told him. He looked around and then back to me with a confused face telling me there was nothing even close to the description I gave him even close to this area. I got up and looked around and to my shock there was nothing but the playing kids and the parents who gave me a confused look. Well the kids went off to school with Nemo and I was talking to the parents asking where they were going. They all told me to the drop off and I was furious if I let Nemo get hurt I would kill myself.

I took off again heading for the drop off. When I got there I saw Nemo with kids trying to see how far they could all go. I told Nemo that he wasn’t ready for school and he needed to get over to me. Instead of listening to me he headed for the boat that was off in the distance. I was screaming at him to get back but for whatever reason he was not listening. He got to the boat and tapped it. Then, he started to head back when divers came up behind him and in front us me. The diver flashed a light in my eyes and it dazed me to no end.

When I finally got my eyesight back I saw the boat leaving and none of the kids and there was as if they were never there but I saw them I know it. I went chasing the boat for miles but I could never catch it. There were fishes swimming just under where I was swimming at. I went to ask them but none of them knew there was a boat even going by. I told myself over and over again that there was a boat I knew it from the bottom of my very heart. I kept looking for a sign of any boat but to my shock there was nothing. Then, this fish came up telling me there was one that went buy. She was a royal blue with a black and yellow strip going down the length of her body on both sides of her body. She introduced herself as Dory. I told myself it was a beautiful name the most beautiful name I have heard. She told me to follow her and she would show me the way to the boat.

I followed and we headed west for a decent amount of time. Then she changed directions as if she didn’t know who I was. I still being a worried parent followed. She turned around telling me to not follow her. I said she was showing me to a boat and she repeated what she said from earlier. I guess she suffers from short-term memory loss. Out of all the fish why did I get stuck with her only knowing the way the boat went. I told her that I didn’t have time and turned to go home. She grabbed my tail fin and she did say that she suffered from short-term memory loss and that it runs in her family but she says she could help me find the boat.

We went on our way and we got to this open part of the ocean with no fish in sight. Looking around there was nothing but open water. I turned to Dory but she was gone. Did I lose her I asked myself? Well I sat there waiting maybe I just went ahead of her. Well minutes went to hours then days with nothing but open water in all directions. Well I got up and looked around one last time then turned to go back when Dory came out of no where with three sharks. They said they were not going to hurt me and that Dory told them the whole situation. I followed them to their place which was a sunken ship surrounded by mines. The place was grim and disturbing.

They started some sort of meeting that was confusing considering they were great white sharks the most threatening of all the sharks. They talked about how they don’t usually eat fish. Their motto was “fish are friends not food” which is still in my head to this very day. To know that there are some sharks that doesn’t actually eat fish. Well it was my turn to go up the podium so I swam up to it and did introduced my name and that I have never eaten a fish in my life it would have been kind of weird if I have.

After some time me and Dory were talking about this mask that came from one of the divers that we found on our way to where we are. We didn’t know how to read it of what language it was written in. She said we should ask one of the sharks I wasn’t to keen on it so I grabbed it pulling on it. Well my fin slipped and it hit her on the face causing her to bleed as the biggest of the three sharks swam over. I guess he smelled the blood because he lost it and began attacking us.

We swam into a torpedo tube to protect ourselves from this crazy maniac shark. As he attacked the torpedo kept banging on the thing holding it from launching into something but Dory launched it anyways right into the sharks mouth. He threw it into one of the mines causing a massive explosion.

I swam back out of the torpedo tube to check the damage and see if the coast was clear. The sharks were gone and no where to be found but either was Dory which confused me because she was right next to me just a minute ago. I kept looking but to no success. Giving up I swam into the submarine to relax and I would continue my search tomorrow. That night I heard noises that frightened me to where I could not get any sleep at all. There was banging on the walls of the ship and I felt like someone was watching me. I became paranoid to where I swam from the submarine into the ocean blue.

I swam for miles and still had that feeling that I was being watched. I stopped swimming and called for them to come out but it was Open Ocean and there was no place to hide. I turned back to and kept swimming again. Terrified out of my mind I wasn’t going to stop no matter what. After about two hours of swimming I saw the first fish since Dory but they looked hurt.

When I got to them I could see the true sight that was there. It was Dory but not the Dory I knew she was laying on the ocean floor covered in blood and guts. She had a rock going completely through her body with the tip covered in her body. It seemed that she had been laying there for days because she had started decomposing and was almost unrecognizable. The sight made me fall to the ground and cry. I got back up after time and swam towards the way I came towards home. I couldn’t take losing anyone but Nemo was with that human but I couldn’t go on.

I got back to the fish to see Nemo there which was a surprise. I grabbed him and hugged him till I couldn’t anymore. When I let him go he seemed surprised to get that. He asked what was wrong but I told him it was nothing. I fell into a deep sleep that night and in the dream I had it was pitch black and the voice was telling me that Nemo was not real only a figment of my imagination made because of the loss of my wife and kids. None of them survived the fight with the fish and Dory wasn’t real as well I had made it all up.

I woke up the next morning and Nemo was not there I had finally realized what was happening I imagined it and it was all a delusion. I got up with tears in my eyes and swam in circles. I got out of the house and saw the open ocean for the last time. I looked around and saw a rock with a sharp point at the end. I swam over it and sat on top of it. I looked up and saw Dory and Nemo smiling at me and they reached their fins out towards me. They pushed me into the rock and it went through my body like a knife through hot butter but instead of feeling pain I felt joy I would eventually see my wife again as I took my last breath.

...Nemo Dat Quod Non Habet * As general rule, when a person takes goods, he or she gets only the same rights to the goods as the person from whom he or she took them. This rule is expressed in the Latin maxim nemo dat quod non habet. * This maxim is set out in section 27 of Sale of Goods Act 1957 (hereinafter refer as SOGA) which states that where goods are sold by a person who is not the owner and who does not sell them under the authority or with the consent of the owner, the buyer acquires no better title to the goods that the seller had even though the buyer has paid the price in good faith. The object of this rule is to protect the right of ownership of the true owner. * In Lim Chui Lai v Zeno Ltd [1964], the issue is whether Ahmad acquires any title to sell the chattels or not.

Little Nemo In Slumberland

...Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo in Slumberland depicts a child named Little Nemo journeying through a fantastical dream before ultimately being woken up to reality in the end.

Finding Nemo

...Aaron Liu Finding Nemo: A Loss of Innocence Throughout the movie, Finding Nemo, Marlin has to endure a myriad of hardships and obstacles in order to save his son. Because of this journey, Marlin also goes through many changes in attitude. Marlin’s first real loss of “innocence” occurred in the opening scene. It begins with Marlin and Coral admiring their new home and their abundance of eggs. Marlin is friendly, loving, and appears to be carefree; the exact opposite of his personality throughout the rest of the movie. Unfortunately, a barracuda attacks, knocking Marlin unconscious and killing Coral and all but one of the eggs. Marlin ends up naming the egg, Nemo, a name that his wife liked. Therefore, a main character’s loss of “innocence” is through a devastation of fantasy as it encounters a cruel reality. The opening scene showed the origins of Marlin’s worrisome and fearful personality. Before his loss, Marlin seemed carefree and cheerful, however due to the harshness of reality, he transforms into a stranger. Because of the barracuda attack, Marlin realizes the numerous amounts of potential disasters. However, his last surviving child is what pulls him together and we can see that Marlin especially treasures Nemo because it is also a representation of his wife. Furthermore, the camera zoomed in on the cracking of the last egg. When Marlin notices that the egg is damaged, he vows to protect Nemo and wraps his fins around the egg, foreshadowing his overprotective personality...

...road to success, there will be bumps and setback standing in our way. Only through perseverance can we conquer those obstacles that stand in our way. Perseverance is defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary to be: “continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition.” No matter ones culture or what factors life has thrown your way, perseverance is always the instinctual force that tells the subconscious to never quit. Perseverance through strength and determination can be seen in our countries early foundation. It was perseverance that led to westward expansion for inexpensive land, and leads in an age of manifest density and shaped our country. My favorite quote of perseverance is from Disney's Finding Nemo. Through perseverance the protagonist tries to get his son home and only succeeds because he continually reaffirms himself to “just keep swimming, just keep swimming”. With no way to avoid a challenge, you must continue and learn from the experience to become successful. Perseverance is fighting to be on top and achieve that goal to be number one. Perseverance is coming back from a torn ACL and MCL from playing football and becoming 2012 defenseman of the year award in lacrosse.

Hero's Journey

...Finding Nemo A hero is not defined by their past, but instead, what and who they find within themselves in a dire moment of need. There is a hero in everyone. Most people just need the right time and the courage to bring out their inner hero. The writer and philosopher Joseph Campbell wrote about the stages each hero goes through in their journey in a book called, The Hero with a Thousand Faces. In Finding Nemo, there is tragedy before there is hope. There is also comedy, adventure and suspense to keep the viewer on their feet. Marlin, a clown fish father and the hero, embarks on a journey to find his son, Nemo. Marlin’s wife dies protecting Nemo and his siblings when they are still eggs and are being attacked by an eel who is trying to eat them. After the attack, Nemo is the only egg left. Nemo survives, but is injured, which leaves him with a gimp fin. This leaves the excited and adventurous Marlin a very scared and timid clownfish. When Nemo is captured by a scuba diver, Marlin must swim from the Great Barrier Reef to Sydney, Australia to save him. Marlin will find the hero within himself and act fast to save Nemo while also allowing him to learn and grow without sheltering him too much. The hero’s ordinary world consists of Marlin and his son Nemo, confined to the safety and protection of the ocean by their sea anemone. Although this may seem uncommon, in real life, this is a very common relationship between clownfish and anemone. Without the anemone, clownfish usually become...

Genre Awareness Report

...genres don’t have rigid structures that the movies within them must comply with. Children’s-Adventure movies, for example, are usually animated films that have a plot based on some type of journey or adventure that is taken on by the main characters (Dirks, 1). There is almost always some great obstacle or challenge that the main character(s) must overcome, and usually good trumps evil. These films generally contain light humor, and teach some sort of life-lesson, or have a recurrent morale to the story. Methodology I analyzed three movie posters from the Children’s-Adventure genre to explore the similarities and differences movie posters from the same genre may have. The three movie posters I chose to analyze were from the movies Finding Nemo, Up, and Ice Age. My first step in analyzing these posters was to familiarize myself with the genre, so I used the internet to search multiple definitions of Children’s-Adventure films. After I felt that I had a pretty good grasp on what encompasses the genre, I used Google image search to find images of...

...In the movie Finding Nemo they said “ Just Keep Swimming “. what this quote is telling me is that, I should never give up no matter what happens. Like if something bad happens to you like it did for Michael Phelps, you should never stop trying or get disappointed. I really like this quote because it is really inspirational and it tells you that you need to keep going no matter what happens and it fits my beliefs because I don't ever really give up it also just motivates me do the things I need to do when times are bad. Keep on going no matter what. Michael Phelps never gave up in the Olympics. Michael won the next even he was in and got silver medals.

Wall-E: Sustainability Through Film

...If asked, most children probably won't be able to define sustainability, but they might recall seeing the movies A Bug’s Life, Finding Nemo, and Wall-E. In A Bug’s Life, the protagonist must save his colony from greedy human-like grasshoppers stealing their resources. Finding Nemo, shows the effects of the human footprint on tide pools through a father clownfish losing his son. Directed by Andrew Stanton, Wall-E (2008) also uses an anthropomorphistic story to highlight aspects of sustainability. The first sentence of the trailer for Wall-E, sets the story seven hundred years into the future when mankind has abandoned planet Earth and left it’s clean up in the hands of a machine. As the story is being introduced, the audience is shown an aerial view of Earth from outer space. It zooms into the dusty, brown planet, and we are introduced to Wall-E.  Standing for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class, Wall-E is the last robot alive from millions of machines whose purpose was to clean up the Earth after humans fled the mess they made. However, after introducing the main character, Wall-E, the trailer then dives into his relationship with his love interest Eve. This undermines the importance of the film’s ecological message by portraying it as a love story. Through its dramatization of excessive corporate control, iconography of relevant waste culprits, and somber cinematography, Wall-E actually serves as a social critique of consumer mentality and illuminates corporate effects...

Media and Our Downfall

...I. Introduction: In our everyday lives we confronted with many obstacles and choices. We look for escapes and stress relievers. The media provides a false comfort away from those stresses. “Thus the predominant genres and modes of representation (news, chat show, soap opera) meet the needs and the desires for order of, and in, the everyday, and even in those areas of media production and consumption where it may be suggested that there is scope for both resistance and ambiguity (and there is evidence, for example, in popular music culture and in some online networks and bulletin boards that this is the case).” (Silverstone, R., 2002). It’s the media, producers and the fortune 500 companies that produce consumer goods and those companies that feed our imaginations with fallacies through “entertainment” television. i. Thesis: It is my belief that we should hold the media accountable for its not only on a deontological level but, a judicial level as well. II. Ethnics: while not mandatory is in good character. i.
