no thread yet huh
Less than two weeks away new. Pretty excited
This looks like it's gonna make me have something in my eyes. Excited to see this.
Early reviews looking good
Yeah, this was very good. A nice progression of the story that doesn't rely too much on references to the first movie. Plus, you've got Stringer Bell and McNulty as sea lions.
I want to see it for this alone.
trying to convince the girlfriend to see this tonight
If she says no leave her imo
Made $9.2 million from Thursday screenings. Pretty insane numbers for an animated film. Looking to break the record for best opening weekend for an animated film, as well.
went last night to the standard version of it, obviously it was great. nothing like being a 28 year old male and getting emotional during animated films. thanks pixar.
this is delightful. good laughs for the kids and the parents.
Fucking hell we were crowded today, have to imagine this is doing insane numbers.
Piper was so cute and lifelike and it's cool that Adrian Belew scored it
and yeah this is great, I need a gif or vine of cuddle party ASAP
also anyone else think of Becky with the good hair anytime they mentioned Becky
Amazed how great this movie was.
ed o'neill and ty burrell were a great addition too
This was alright. It was certainly fun but outside of the Toy Story trilogy I'm not really into Pixar's prequels/sequels. Monsters University and Finding Dory are fine, but not as fresh or unique as the studio's best work. This film uses the same surface level plot mechanics as Finding Nemo, and it's just not as fun or exciting this time around. I definitely felt things though, Dory's arc worked pretty well even when I was sort of over everything else the film was doing.
In a film that seems to pretty overtly be about mental health (Dory and her memory loss, Hank and his PTSD), it seemed a little weird that two characters who clearly have some sort of mental health issue were such punchlines. The seal was purely a joke and Becky had like... magical powers where she could absorb the commands of fish and then dutifully and silently serve them, like a flying Hodor. Not like it ruined the movie or anything, it just felt a little incongruent with the film's central thematics.
It didn't give me the typical Pixar feely vibes, but it was good though!
every single time
I wrote a spoiler-free piece about the movie
In Defense of Dory, In Love with Pixar
It also has a lot of info about Pixar that some people may not know, but with an autobiographical spin on it.
"Never go full Minions."
Absolutely hilarious. That last little bit of trivia was terrifying though.
This was great.
This (obviously) wasn't as good as Nemo, and it didn't really do anything that different, but it was a very fun - and heartwarming - time. Glad I got to see a late show especially.
It was a very pleasant surprise to me that Dory's short term memory loss was no longer the joke but the emotional component to the movie. I have a family member who suffers short term memory loss as a result of a traumatic brain injury so a lot of those emotional beats hit for me. I felt they really achieved starting that conversation.
I do agree with @Nathan that the inclusion of Gerald and Becky as comic relief felt pretty strange. I'd like to hear the creators explain those characters because it felt very tone deaf to me.
