    "Marlin finally comes to terms with the losses of his life..." *ThEn FiNdInG DoRy CoMeS oUt.* *NeMo IsN't StIlL gOne, He GoEs WiTh MaRliN* 😂 Ah, yes. I love when people do a huge theory and an unexpected movie sequel comes out and ruins it. (┳Д┳)
    Dory means "Gift of God"... Its like she was sent to help Marlin accept his family's death...

    I like how we are making Find Nemo into a Shutter Island psychological film in the stages of grief. Not to mention this theory only makes sense because Dory is crazy and two mental fish attract each other nonetheless. How doesn’t Nemo exist if Nemo is in Finding we assume that Dory is playing along? 🤔

    Wait. What if marlin thought nemo was dead and named him like that because he thougth him as an imaginary friend

    Except the fact that Coral came up with this name, which disproves the whole theory. Also I watched the movie again and tried to view the whole story as his hallucination while watching, and despite it I really didn’t get that impression, although I must admit that watching it with such assumption gave me a little bit darker experience from the movie. But no matter what argument anybody can come up with, Finding Dory disproves this completely.

    Can someone explain it to me in the getto way

  • Shifter
    Shifter 6 months ago

    Here it is explained more clearly.
    Nemo means 'no one' in Latin.
    Most likely, the dad us delusional and schizophrenic after the lost of his kids and family. He then creates this persona of his own son because he still hasn't let go of the situation.

    Nemo is real... But his parents are just too stupid to think of a goodname.

  • Armoni Hill
    Armoni Hill 7 months ago +1

    My theory is that Nemo is nobody but Marlin is probably stilled in a deep sleep after the attack dreaming about what it would be like having one of his deceased family member making it realistic and sad while Marlin faces the 5 stages of greif

    To make this theory make more sense:
    Nemo means nobody, “Finding Nobody”
    Baracuda attack kills his entire family, Marlin makes up the delusion that his son is still alive, he meets friends that help him move on. (So everybody else in the movie are real just not Nemo.) Dory helps Marlin by showing him to live in the moment (hence her short term memory loss as a metaphor). In the whale scene, Dory tells Marlin to ‘let go’ and that ‘everything will be alright’. Once he does, he is almost a completely changed person and becomes ecstatic and cheerful. The sharks help Marlin by making him realize that not everything is a threat. The turtles help Marlin with his anxiety. When Marlin finds Nemo, the second time he sends off Nemo to school, he has no hesitation about it. This is actually Marlin finally coming to terms and moving on.

    Just as suspected, total bullshit.
    1st and obvious argument: But other characters interact with Nemo.
    The rebuttal: "It was either a fever dream or the other characters were playing along"
    Rebuttal rebuttal: So the school, the kids, Dory, the scuba diver and everyone at the dentists office was just playing along with Marlon?
    "Or it was a fever dream"
    Ah, the "it was all a dream" theory. The very first theory you think of for a twist in a story. Well then, by that outlook, every movie ever made could be someone's dream and therefore renders the entire process of storytelling pointless.
    And I love how you tell us to look at this movie through the lense of the theory's narrow perspective, rather than critically, because it'll fall apart if we do. Your words, not mine. Then the rest of the video is going over how Marlon goes through the stages of grief, a totally different subject from losing your mind and hallucinating a whole movie that never happened.

  • Alice Laybourne

    Nope, sorry, doesn't work even as a lens. The most powerful part is Nemo is No One, however it lacks punch because Coral gave him them name before she died ("I like Nemo") That is the reason for the name, not to be a larger purpose. Yeah, and the whole parallel story line undermines it, and the whole 5th stage (Acceptance) never happens, so Nope, doesn't work. Back to the drawing board.

    Marlin should actually change into a female when Nemo's mom died. The female is the biggest and strongest if she dies the biggest and strongest male then change into a female soooo Marlin is actually a female 😂

  • Nerdy While Black - NWB

    I would agree with this if it werent for the fact that we, as an audience, watch things occur from Nemo's perspective. Did we imagine Nemo too? Not to mention the list of other characters in the movie who interact with nemo. I would agree if the entire movie was from the father's perspective.

    too bad there are other fish interacting with nemo even without his father anywhere near.... since you claimed they only seem to interact with nemo to not aggravate is father or make him seem crazy.... this whole theory falls apart faster than it takes to speak sentence..

  • Nic Merrill

    This is a really weak idea. Nemo has a progressive story line, and character progression, and personal relationships with most of the other characters.

    WhatCulture, I can tell that you put some time and effort in this, but WHY? This is beyond stupid, there is nothing about your theory that makes sense! Every single thing you said is ridiculous and has nothing to back it up. From the first thing you said to the end of the video, all I'm thinking is what about Finding Dory!!!!! I'm sorry you wasted your time making this.
