Another article[edit]

Someone created another article for this film (not surprisingly since there are so many version!); the two should be merged, preferably under this title, since it's aligned with the naming conventions. Cheers, Her Pegship 17:58, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Nemo-shah.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Nemo-shah.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 23:19, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Commons[edit]

Hi,

I'm a user from the German Wikipedia and I wanted to ask you to put the pictures of this article into the Commons, so that we are able to use them, too. Thank you very much. --84.137.75.125 11:25, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Giant squid...[edit]

...as itself? You're kidding, right? Is that seriously in the credits? :-) -The Realms of Gold (talk) 06:36, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

comic?[edit]

Didn't Disney run a comic based on the characters from the book? I seem to recall something of the sort in an old digest I read waaay back in the '70s.Rickremember (talk) 22:41, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

I remember a Dell comic book of the film. This was typical promotion at the time. (I also remember a comic book of Spartacus, with Kirk Douglas in very brief briefs on the cover.) WilliamSommerwerck (talk) 12:39, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Besides "Worlds of Adventure," Gold Key published Walt Disney Comics Digest which often had the Adventures of Captain Nemo in them. HammerFilmFan (talk) 20:17, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

The Music[edit]

The music is so compelling. I have not been able to find it anywhere or even to get the title. Paul Smith wrote this piece and it's played outside of the Disney ride, but what is it and why the big secret?69.122.62.231 (talk) 13:09, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Note that Paul Smith has adapted themes from two classics with minor modifications, Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky for the ocean scenes and The Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner for the scenes showing the Nautilus attacking a ship.Schmausschmaus (talk) 15:56, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Highly Subjective Language[edit]

This article starts out objectively enough but then launches into an analysis by someone who doesn't even try to hide their unabashed adoration for the film. Hey, I like the movie too, but this is supposed to be an objective article, not a love fest. Minaker (talk) 09:57, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

correction[edit]

"It was the first live action movie with no animation sequences ever filmed by Disney Studios..."

Except for Treasure Island four years earlier. May I remove that part? 98.209.61.56 (talk) 20:43, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Earl Felton[edit]

I've long been impressed with Earl Felton's script, which focuses on the story's moral elements. (Not having read the novel, I don't know how accurately it reflects the original.) There isn't much information about Felton, and not even a Wikipedia stub for him. His seemingly tragic life would make an interesting article -- his legs were paralyzed from polio, and he committed suicide at a fairly early age.

Nemo's ethnicity[edit]

Is there any mention in the film of Nemo's ethnic or cultural background? if so, it should be mentioned as a variant (if so) from nemo's original Indian ethnicity. and, if not mentioned in the film, perhaps there is commentary on the likely change in ethnicity?(mercurywoodrose)50.193.19.66 (talk) 16:49, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Differences with the Book by Joules Verne[edit]

Anyone care to write a section on differences with the Book. The only thing the book and the film seem to have in common is a submarine. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.198.145.187 (talk) 07:31, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Plot bloat[edit]

Editors are adding non-essential details to a plot summary that is already somewhat over the guidelines established at WP:FILMPLOT. I welcome them to discuss their changes and why they should trump the guideline. DonIago (talk) 18:00, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

I concur that the plot summary needs to be kept short per Wikipedia's policy of having "a concise summary" when it comes to works of fiction. As Doniago mentions above, the plot summary should be between 400 and 700 words. The goal of having a summary is to provide an understanding of the film so the rest of the article can be comprehended. It's not meant to replace watching the film. Really, we should aim for the middle of that word-count range. Erik (talk | contribs) 20:56, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Capitalization[edit]

"Under" is a preposition. Shouldn't it be in lowercase in the title? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.67.119.190 (talk) 13:51, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
