Finding Dory (2016)
« on: March 04, 2017, 05:30:45 pm »

Finding Dory had a lot to live up in trying to match the stellar Finding Nemo. This is a Pixar flck, so I knew that it would be another winning project for the team. What I didn't expect to see was a movie that in my eyes and ears surpasses Nemo. I loved Finding Dory for all the obvious reasons. Amazing FX of course is at the top, but it's the Voice Acting by everyone involved from Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks to  Ed O'Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy.  I thought it was kind of brilliant to get Sigourney Weaver as a Theme Park announcer. I'm sure that when she saw the movie for the first time, she no doubt was grinning from ear to ear. As great as all this is, for me, the one true stand out here is the Story. It's gut wrenching at times watching Dory trying to find and forgetting her parents that she lost long ago. It's hard not to get a little teary-eyed by the end. I may have gotten my copy from the Library, but you can bet your last dollar I will be buying this to add to my personal Library. Loved every second of every frame of this movie. I can't say enough good things about it. Get it!

Something I love about these movies is how well they make the fish work in a world that's not suited to them.  i constantly think "how is Dory going to get from a to b?" and they find a brilliant way of doing it.  There's so much tension and surprise in this because everything could go wrong in an instant and if it does, there's nothing they can do about it.  You know that it's a cartoon and everything will work out, but they manage to surprise you with HOW it works out.  I think that's great.

I love the Aquarium... I also love that the WHOLE thing was built in the computer, even rooms we didn't see.  That way, if the narrative made them take a different path, they could take it.  It's like a video game, they have that whole world to explore.

Obviously, being a special needs kid, this really pulled at my heartstrings.  I can appreciate what Dory's parents are going through as well as Dory's struggle to interface with the world around her.
