Home Entertainment: ‘Finding Dory’ review

28 November 2016 2:17 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Finding Dory DVD review: Pixar’s only big-screen release of 2016 heads to the small screen. Could this be the greatest animated sequel of all time? Finding Dory DVD review

Finding Dory DVD review continues below.

2016 has been an absolutely belting year for Disney. Things kicked off rather nicely for the studio at Easter, releasing Zootropolis at a time of year that they hadn’t chosen for quite some time. The film was a massive success, and with their second feature of the year, Finding Dory, hitting at the peak of summer through their subsidiary Pixar, they managed to take things one step further.

Finding Dory had the unenviable task of not only following on from Zootropolis, but also the superb Pixar original Finding Nemo thirteen years prior. ‘Dory’ follows the Ellen Degeneres character who sets out on a mission to find herself by locating her parents. Her travels take her »

Blu-ray Review – Finding Dory (2016)

15 November 2016 3:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Finding Dory, 2016.

Directed by Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane.

Featuring the voice talents of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olsen, Ty Burrell, Hayden Rolence, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Bob Peterson, Kate McKinnon, Sloane Murray, Bill Hader, Sigourney Weaver, Brad Garrett, Allison Janney, Vicki Lewis, Austin Pendleton, Stephen Root, and Willem Dafoe.

Synopsis:

Pixar continues its string of great animated movies with Finding Dory, which successfully continues the Finding Nemo story in a way that doesn’t feel like a cash grab. This set, which includes two Blu-rays and a DVD, has a nice smattering of bonus features, although a solid making-of documentary is conspicuously missing.

I had a couple young children when Finding Nemo came out, so the film hit me between the eyes as a parent (and still does, since my wife and I had another child a few years later). Its »

Second Opinion – Finding Dory (2016)

30 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Finding Dory, 2016.

Directed by Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane.

Starring Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olsen, Ty Burrell, Hayden Rolence, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Bob Peterson, Kate McKinnon, Sloane Murray, Bill Hader and Sigourney Weaver.

Synopsis:

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.

 

Last year Pixar delivered two original movies, one of which was met with huge acclaim (Inside Out) and the other, not so much (The Good Dinosaur). Their history with sequels has likewise been uneven, ranging from great (Toy Story 2 & 3) to decent (Monsters University) to poor (Cars 2), so I was very relieved to discover that Finding Dory is a truly great film – in my opinion just as good (if not better) than Finding Nemo.

Angus MacLane interview: directing Finding Dory

28 July 2016 11:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jul 29, 2016

The co-director of Finding Dory on making the film. Plus, he recommends an awful lot of movies to watch...

From working as an animator on A Bug’s Life and Toy Story 2, through to directing shorts such as Burn-e and Toy Story Of Terror, Angus MacLane has worked his way up through his career at Pixar. So much so, that he’s now making his feature co-directing debut on Finding Dory, that lands in UK cinemas today.

He spared us some time for a chat – and it’s worth staying to the end where he starts firing out film recommendations….

I first spoke to you eight or nine years ago when you were talking about Wall-e, that you were supervising animator. And you told me then of an eight-year old who asked you a question about that film at a Q&A. And I do think »

Finding Dory review

Simon Brew Published Date  Friday, July 29, 2016 - 05:34

Belated sequels haven’t been having the best of times of late. Follow-ups to the likes of Dumb And Dumber, Zoolander and Anchorman have either spluttered at the box office, or failed to capture what made the original films work. Even those that have succeeded – Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Jurassic World – have nailed their colours firmly to the proverbial masts of the original movies.

Finding Dory, though, arrives in the UK off the back of an enormous level of success in the Us. And whilst it’s arguably not the equal of the charming and quite wonderful Finding Nemo, there’s an awful lot to like here.

Chiefly, Dory. The focus of Finding Dory, co-written and co-directed by Andrew Stanton (who was the driving force behind Finding Nemo), is on her, voiced once again by Ellen DeGeneres. Dory is a regal blue tang fish, »

Synopsis:

Dory is on a desperate mission to find her family. With the help of Marlon and Nemo, they end up at a Marina that introduces our friends to new animals and clues to a past Dory never knew she had…

When Finding Dory was announced, many were sceptical. Two years prior, the dreadful Cars 2 marked a low-point for Pixar while Monsters University was due for release. Between 2010 and 2013 only the lacklustre Brave was an original. Finding Nemo was always a complete film, famous for a heart-wrenching opening and a dark »

‘Finding Dory’ Swimming for Record $140 Million Opening

18 June 2016 8:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Giving a much-needed jolt to the summer box office, “Finding Dory” is dominating moviegoing with a record-breaking $140 million opening weekend, estimates showed Saturday.

Disney/Pixar’s animated sequel, playing in 4,305 North American theaters, grossed a stunning $55 million on its opening day Friday.

Finding Dory” will finish the frame with four times the total of action-comedy “Central Intelligence,” starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, which is launching with a solid $34 million at 3,508 sites this weekend.

“Dory” will demolish the nine-year-old record for best domestic animated opening, set by “Shrek the Third” in 2007 with $121.6 million. “Minions” was the second largest at $115.7 million, followed by Disney/Pixar’s “Toy Story 3” with $110 million.

At $140 million, “Dory” will rank as the 17th largest domestic opener of all time and the third largest of 2016. Marvel/Disney’s “Captain America: Civil War” had the year’s highest-grossing launch so far with $179 million, the fifth-largest debut of all time. »

‘Finding Dory’ Set to Break Record for Biggest Animated Film Opening With $130 Million

17 June 2016 12:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Finding Dory” is swimming toward a record-breaking $130 million opening weekend, early estimates showed Friday.

Disney/Pixar’s animated sequel — playing in 4,305 North American theaters with Ellen DeGeneres in the lead voice role — is completely dominating moviegoing, set to earn more than $50 million on its opening day Friday. That includes $9.2 million from Thursday night, the biggest debut of all time for an animated film.

Action-comedy “Central Intelligence,” teaming Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, is launching with a solid $35 million at 3,508 sites this weekend.

The most conservative estimates Friday were in the $115 million to $130 million range. Sunday’s telecast of the NBA final game may hold down some business at the end of the weekend, but it’s likely that “Dory” will break the nine-year-old record for best domestic animated opening, set by “Shrek the Third” in 2007 with $121.6 million. “Minions” is in second at $115.7 million, followed by Disney/Pixar’s “Toy Story 3” with $110 million. »

17 June 2016 8:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Finding Dory” has opened with a record-breaking $9.2 million on Thursday night.

The Disney/Pixar sequel had the biggest Thursday debut of all time for an animated film, easily topping “Minions” ($6.2 million) and “Despicable Me 2” ($4.7 million) as well as Diseny-Pixar hits “Toy Story 3” ($4 million) and “Inside Out” ($3.7 million). It also more than double the Thursday night launch of Disney’s “The Jungle Book” at $4.2 million.

Action-comedy “Central Intelligence,” teaming Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, launched with a solid $1.8 million during Thursday previews.

“Dory,” the sequel to “Finding Nemo,” will easily top $100 million, and may debut with more than $115 million in 4,305 North American theaters this weekend. That would establish a new opening record for a Disney/Pixar release, topping “Toy Story 3’s” $110 million launch in 2010.

“Dory” may even challenge 2007’s “Shrek the Third,” which currently holds the record for the largest North American opening weekend for an animated movie with $121.6 million. »

Review: 'Finding Dory' is a slighter sequel, but with some strong Pixar work

16 June 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

2016 has not been particularly kind to sequels at the box office, and audiences seem to be rejecting films that were overtly created to satisfy a studio need rather than an audience want, a trend I am happy to see. Pixar has had mixed luck with their sequels, creatively speaking, but seems to recognize as a company that story should drive these decisions above everything else. Andrew Stanton’s Finding Dory, co-directed with Angus MacLane, has to be considered a victory based on how well it justifies its own existence, telling a story that is built on a solid emotional foundation and driven by new encounters with characters we genuinely adore. Finding Nemo is rightly considered one of the crown jewels of Pixar’s overall history, a thematically rich story that took full advantage of the remarkable technical muscle of the studio. Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres is one of the most unlikely comedy duos I can name, but they were perfect together as Marlin (Brooks) and Dory (DeGeneres), two fish who teamed up to find Marlin’s missing son. Warm and funny and emotionally devastating in places, Finding Nemo sums up everything that is exciting about what Pixar does as a studio. Finding Dory, on the other hand, serves as a reminder that Pixar is made up of human beings, and it’s not some monolithic perfect machine churning out one perfect thing after another. More than the first film, I can feel how hard everyone’s working here, and while the end result is enjoyable, it’s also far more overtly calculated than the first. Let’s be honest… it’s hard to make a sequel under any circumstances. The real problem that Pixar has is that they’re competing with their own history at this point. It helps that they had this great defining characteristic for Dory, her complete and utter lack of short-term memory, which was mined for so much humor in the first film. This time, they open the film with an extended sequence in which we meet baby Dory, who pushes the definition of the word “cute” right to the breaking point, voiced by Sloane Murray, as her parents Jenny (Diane Keaton) and Charlie (Eugene Levy) work with her to make sure that she’ll be safe no matter what, and honestly… just typing those words… it chokes me up all over again. It’s a more subtle gutpunch than the opening of Up, but it cuts right to the heart the same way the single shot flashback at the end of Finding Nemo did. One of the things about Pixar’s story department is that they emphasize the fundamentals of structure, both for the film as a whole and for the individual set pieces, and often, they lay out how a film will end for you way before you get to the ending. Their films end the way they end because they have to; that’s how carefully they structure these things. They are great at setting up narrative inevitabilities that work because they satisfy. That’s what structure can do for you as a storyteller; used properly, it creates a satisfying sense of something coming together, all the pieces dropping into place. There’s one main problem I have with Finding Dory. It doesn’t ruin the movie for me, but it’s still a problem. Part of what made the first film so special was the way it emphasized the vast expanse of the world’s oceans as part of what Marlin’s search for his son so dangerous. The second act of that movie is smart and thrilling and really travels. Here, as soon as they start the search, they narrow it down to an aquarium on the California coastline, and in one quick scene, they bypass the entire ocean. Once they arrive at the aquarium, there are some really great new characters and things build and build, with terrific comedy and action sequences, and the ending really does its job. Even so, I feel like this massive short-cut is such a big narrative cheat, clumsy in a way that is surprising for Pixar. It’s like a huge fart at the end of a flawless ballet performance. It takes nothing away from the overall accomplishment, but it sure does land with a thud. Both Brooks and DeGeneres are just as sharp here as they were in the original, but Marlin and Nemo (Hayden Rolence) are side-lined for much of the film. There's a lot less of them in general. DeGeneres carries most of the weight of the movie, and she's excellent. I am an immediate fan of Hank (Ed O’Neill), an octopus who is determined to live out the rest of his life in Cleveland. Brilliantly animated, he’s funny and touching all at once, and his relationship with Dory is the real backbone of the movie. Kaitlin Olson (whose new pilot The Mick confirms that she is one of the great comic catastrophes working right now) and Ty Burrell both get some big laughs as a nearsighted whale shark and a beluga with a malfunctioning echolocator. Idris Elba and Dominic West lean into their natural accents as a pair of seals who take great glee in depriving another seal access to their rock, and they’re very funny. There’s even a fiendishly funny use of Sigourney Weaver. On a technical level, it’s gorgeous work, and comparing this to the original should give you some idea of just how far we’ve come in the 13 years since the first was released. There’s a short film attached to this one called Piper that is stunning, told with photo-realistic animals in a photo-realistic environment, with no dialogue whatsoever. It’s all performance, and it’s startling how good it looks. While I can’t help but feel like there’s a ham-handed fumble of some key story points, Finding Dory does enough right that it won’t matter. Family audiences are going to eat this up, and I do think that when the film lands its emotional punches, it is remarkable. Say what you will, but Pixar understands innately that making their audience feel something deeply is the greatest magic trick in movies, and all of their work as technicians and artists are always focused on making that happen. Finding Dory may be familiar magic, but there’s magic in it all the same. Finding Dory is in theaters everywhere tomorrow. »

Film Review: ‘Finding Dory’ Essentially Finds Its Sweet Spot

16 June 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Pixar’s sequel to its underwater animated tearjerker “Finding Nemo” isn’t quite in the same league, but “Finding Dory” is satisfying all the same. This time the story focuses on Marlin and Nemo’s forgetful friend Dory, as she searches for the family she can’t quite remember.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Dory (voiced again by Ellen DeGeneres) embarks on a trip back across the ocean – when she has a sudden flashback – and remembers something about her parents. Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo come along for the ride, to help keep the forgetful fish on the right track. While the action starts in the open ocean, the animation of Pixar has changed up the scenery this time too, trading the undersea life for a scenic aquarium on the California coast.

When they arrive at the aquarium, “Finding Dory” becomes part prison break and part heist movie as Dory and company try »
