“Finding Dory”: A Fan’s Review
Even as a lifelong fan of Disney and Pixar, I was sceptical about Pixar’s new film “Finding Dory.”
Why this was? I don’t know. Perhaps I felt, somehow, that to release a sequel to a much-loved film for all ages would leave little to be desired. We see sequel after sequel, but not even Disney has been able to score with sequels. Check this page to see all of the sequels and other films that have been made ‘based on’ other Disney films. Even the films that were based on “The Little Mermaid” have not done well. Many people aren’t even aware of theses films.
As far as “Finding Dory” goes, I have been proven wrong.
Synopsis: For “Finding Dory.”
The friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish begins a search for her long-lost parents, and everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family along the way.
Amy’s Thoughts on “Finding Dory.’
The film follows endearingly-forgetful Dory the Blue Tang on her journey to find her parents, having been separated from them as a youngster. After a brief on-screen transition from infancy to adulthood and her meeting with Marlin the clownfish and his son “Bingo”… er… Nemo (the subject of the original film some thirteen years previously, on which this sequel is based) we see Dory captured and placed in an icebox (as, indeed, Nemo had been.) Heading towards an uncertain future, Dory discovers both old and new friends, who not only attempt to return the beloved fish to her family, but find a way to free all captured sea-life. The film is, to my mind, subtly humorous, and I remain pleasantly surprised, despite my original doubts about the movie’s success. Congratulations, Disney. It’s a home run!
