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!
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.
