    “Finding Dory” opens today! What did you all think of the latest Pixar film? Will it be Oscar-bound like “Inside Out” or snubbed like “The Good Dinosaur”?

    I thought it was respectably good. Nothing will ever touch the first one. But as of right now, I think the best Disney film this year is Zootopia. Finding Dory might get nominated because it’s Pixar. But a win. Eh, we’ll see. We also have Moana coming out at the end of the year. That could be very strong.

    Can’t wait to see it – I’m a big “Nemo” fan. The reviews are great, so it’s probably a lock for a nomination. I think we have three locks so far: Zootopia, The Red Turtle and Finding Dory. Not including Moana yet because of The Good Dinosaur lol

    This will certainly be in the conversation for Best Animated Picture, and has a strong chance for the win. If you liked “Nemo” you’ll like “Dory.” Personally, I liked it more than Zootopia, but if the Academy wants to award a social message, they will choose that one. Dory was definitely more emotional than Zootopia though.

    Ellen Degeneres does a fine job. She is nicely matched, especially with Diane Keaton. And the animation is truly beautiful.

    That stated, the movie is done no favors by the short Piper that precedes the showing. What a snoozer! It made me sleepy and took me a while to get into Finding Dory.

    I agree with WildforFilm, though. The Nemo sequel is clearly better than Zootopia.

    I think it was good but not as good as the first. Ed O’Neil was my fav part.

    I’ll watch this on Thursday, although for some reason, I don’t really want to. Hope I am pleasantly surprised, as I really like the cast

    huge disappointment

    The character development is atrocious–so many of them exist only to push Dory and/or Marlon/Nemo toward a new obstacle. Elba, McKinnon and Hader are criminally under-utilized, but Hank is probably the worst character because so much of his arc is underdeveloped.

    The film also creates a ton of moments to pack a huge emotional punch only to undercut them with over-explaining.

    It truly is a cartoon made for kids, offering very little depth or subtlety that could possibly appeal to intelligent mind.

    The biggest MEH of the year.

    Wow — it made $100 million domestically in only two days. Cha-ching!

    It was pretty good. No snub to be had here, but doubt it gets across the board like Inside Out. Is it bad that I liked the flashbacks than the present day story? lol Zootopia is still the favorite to win imo.

    It was entertaining enough. What I’m worried about is the actual Blue Tang fish. I remember what happened after Finding Nemo.

    It was OK at best. The comedy was not as clever as I hoped it to be, also a lot of the story line was sappy (which is to be expected I guess). Even though I love DeGeneres, she and her character are not up to being the absolute main line of a feature film.

    It was cute but nothing terribly special. I think it’ll be squeezed out of the Animated Feature category this year like Pixar sequels before it (Toy Story 3 being the only exception for obvious reasons). The competition is just too strong between Disney’s Zootopia/Moana, Laika’s Kubo and the Two Strings, SPC’s The Red Turtle, GKIDS’ April and the Extraordinary World, Netflix’s The Little Prince, and the possible acquisition of My Life as a Zucchini.

    Haven’t seen Finding Dory yet (doesn’t come till the end of the month in UK) but those first five films that manakamana lists above seem like almost inevitable Oscar-nominees in different ways, judging by recent history. Unless Moana and/or Kubo significantly underperform critically, I might even be a little surprised if Finding Dory were nominated.
