Finding Dory (2016)

I’m just going to begin by putting it out there. 2003’s Finding Nemo is probably my favourite Pixar movie of all time (with Wall-E a very, very close second). Funnily enough, for a film that has such close ties to my all time studio favourite, I came to Finding Dory with very little anticipation, perhaps because…
