Let's Go To The Movies - Finding Dory

The whole family headed to the movies on Saturday. We saw Finding Dory, and it was Seamus' very first movie! He did great - sitting in either his chair or Bill's lap the entire time and probably eating way too much candy.

After living happily with Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo for some time, Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) has a sudden memory flash of her previous life and family. Determined to find them before she forgets again, Dory sets out across the ocean for a second adventure of a lifetime.

It was about time Finding Nemo got a sequel, and it was good one too! Finding Dory is a journey story like its predecessor, but thanks to a clever story, entertaining new characters, and a 13-year gap since the original, it felt fresh and fun. The backstory with baby Dory was simultaneously adorable and heartbreaking. The animation is amazing. And it's another great story of perseverance, but with an added reminder that having a disability does not mean one cannot live an independent and full life. I will admit to still loving the first film more (I vastly preferred the ocean setting to the aquarium setting of the second) but as a sequel; Finding Dory is about as good as it gets.
