The Myth Buster
29 March 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

It is generally accepted that only Disney can do animation with strong musical themes. Wrong.

It is generally accepted that only Japan can produce superior animation.Wrong.

It is generally accepted that FINDING NEMO was the best animated story about the sea.Wrong.

The other IMDb reviewer who said this could be the best animated feature ever made may not be wrong. It is one of a kind.

I could go on but hopefully you get the point.

Wonderful. Enchanting. Magical. Perfect.

I couldn't even hit the PAUSE button.
