Time Magazine on Sunday posted its list of the 100 best movies of all-time, putting the Disney/Pixar animated blockbuster, Finding Nemo, in the same company as The Searchers, Taxi Driver and the first two Godfather films. The unranked list also includes the 1940 animated Disney classic, Pinocchio.
Compiled by Time movie critics Richard Schickel and Richard Corliss, the list is a hodgepodge of high-brow cinema and escapist genre fare. Other films that made the cut include the 1977 original Star Wars, Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial and the 1933 version of King Kong. Check out the entire list at www.time.com/time/2005/100movies/index.html.
In addition to being one of the biggest money makers in film history, Finding Nemo won the 2004 Oscar for Best Animated Feature and made many critics’ ten-best lists for the year. The film was directed by Andrew Stanton and exec produced by John Lasseter from a script by Stanton, Bob Peterson and David Reynolds. Graham Walters handled producer duties.
