    Fair enough then, it's clear we've got far too different opinions on what makes a good film to find any middle ground here. :hat2:
    Eh, I think at the very least a fantasy film should be more fantasy than a tourism advert for new Zealand, and that animation films should be light hearted fun.

    Having said that, I'm not fond of breaking bad where as pretty much everyone I know loves it so... :dontknow:

    At it's heart, Nemo is a film about mental health and physical disabilities. Every talking character in the film is disabled or post trauma. It subtly explores issues of pollution, endangered species, and single parenting. It smashes gender roles by having a strong independent set of fathers and feminine resolutions from male characters. It had comedic relief and poignant moments. I just don't see how anyone can say Despicable Me, which at it's heart is about entrepreneurial exploitation of cheap spanish labour, is in the same league. It's an fun film and to each their own, but I just don't see it. :sad:

    I don't look for the meanings in animation, I look for fun - and despicable me is far more fun than finding nemo. Both are kids films, and to me, the primary point of kids films is to be enjoyable, and in that regard, finding nemo is many leagues below despicable me

    Like I said, we just both have different ideas of what makes a film worthy of terms like 'greatest such and such film', there's no room for either of us to have conceded. :hat2:
