Dear Movie Fans,
We have a treat for you this week – a series of three reviews written by special guest reviewer Anna Kraus, a film student (and movie fanatic!) from University of Wisconsin: Oshkosh with a Hollywood bloodline and big dreams for her future.  These reviews will drop today (Tuesday), this Thursday, and Saturday.  Stay tuned!
-Dave

Full of nostalgic – and new – fun, Finding Dory ‘just keeps swimming’ into the hearts of kids and adults everywhere!

Picking up about a year after Finding Nemo, this sequel follows yet another journey across the ocean.  Dory (Ellen Degeneres), the loveable and funny blue tang with short-term memory loss, remembers something she’s long forgotten: her parents!  She sets off with Nemo and Marlin in tow to return to her family and her home.  Does returning Dory to her parents mean losing her?  With a whole ocean to cover, will Dory be able to remember how to find the ones she loves?

Filled with the beautiful animation you expect from Disney/Pixar and charming new characters (Hank, the grouchy octopus who stretches the suspendable disbelief with his rapid and perfect camouflaging), Finding Dory is a decent sequel for grownups and an excellent day at the movies for kids.

I have loved the movies ever since I saw “The Wizard of Oz” as a young boy. When Beatle-mania hit the USA, Rock-N-Roll was my greatest passion, but I haven’t enjoyed the current music scene nearly as much over the past 15 years, so that void has been filled by film. In college and med school, I would see movies with my friends and we would stay up late into the night chatting about them. I still love seeing movies with friends and then having dinner to discuss them. This blog evolved out of my desire to tell my movie-loving friends about movies I thought they would enjoy. The blog allows me to do this in a fun way and to reach movie fans everywhere.
