Hi guys, Ameesh here from Ronin News. I just watched Finding Dory. It’s a great animation; with lots of heart. I’d rate it a 4.5 out of 5. I am also comparing it to its predecessor. The intensity in the first one isn’t as strong as this story. It's just as important.
So let's begin. This story is about Dory’s life, yet it’s told through Dory’s memories. Dory as a kid, her parents, explained her syndrome to her every day until she memorized her affliction. Of short-term memory loss how her parents kept telling her how much they loved her and that never to go to close to the up currents. Her parents began to play games for her to get comfortable in talking to friends and how to ask for help. Eventually, the fateful day happened, and she found herself out in the middle of nowhere asking for help. Every once and a little while a stranger would try to help, but then she forgot who they were, and she would ask for help again. This caused her to continue to get further and further away. Her low attention span didn’t help either. She did this all through her life and up into meeting with a boat and Marlin where she could help someone. And most of you know that story if not go see Finding Nemo. (This was just the intro to this story)
Then one year after that Dory and Nemo and Marlin head to Mr. Ray’s class it’s here that her memories of migration reminded her of her parents. She jumped for joy until she forgot. Yet it wasn’t till Dory and Marlin and Nemo are heading home that she truly gets a shock and her life flashed before her eyes. That’s when she begins her journey until Marlin and Nemo get her to come back home and think it over before she embarks on her destined journey home. While at night she finally gets too agitated and starts waking up Marlin and Nemo and they begin their journey. First, with the turtles, as they realize that her home is in California.
They get let off at the nearby shoreline to find that dory’s home was in an aquarium. This was where her trail truly begins. As she hears Sigourney Weaver's voice. Fish Vets’ notice Dory having bottle plastics wrapped around her, rescue her. Though to Marlin, it looks like kidnapping all over again. Marlin and Nemo begin their separate journey to the aquarium. Dory meets a new member of the cast Hank, and also some old friends Destiny.
As she eventually finds her old home memories of her past come flooding in. She then realizes where her parents might have gotten to and flows back into the ocean. Where she meets up with them again. Only to remember Marlin and Nemo got mixed up with the transport. From there Dory devises a plan with her pals to get the truck back to the aquarium of the sea. Which makes for a great splash. Once again I rate this movie 4 1/2 out of 5.
Well unlike the first story (Finding Nemo), the current takes care of their major journey. It was something I genuinely liked about the first one. Though what that movie had in its journey, it failed to give in the characters bonding.
In this story Dory’s unique perspective aid in an entirely new story; her flashbacks her trails are completely different then Marlin’s or Nemo’s. And while those 2 had the trouble of rescuing and escaping as their major trails, though individual ones, Dory receives both in her search for her parents. If you think about it, Dory is trying to rescue herself from herself. In essence, she is finding herself, Dory. Dory is a friendly animal and with that we really get to bond with her as she boldly bonds with anyone and everyone, hoping to find an answer to her question. “Do you know where my parents are?” Or “Can you help me find Parents?”
