FINDING DORY

Ellen DeGeneres is back as the forgetful fish we loved in Finding Nemo, only this time the waters she’s swimming in are a lot murkier.

Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks), Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolance) and Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres) are all back from their adventure across the ocean saving the young clown fish. Now Dory, who suffers from short term memory loss, is getting flashes from her past. Dory knows she had a family, her parents (voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy) that marked their home by placing shells around it so Dory could remember her way home. They also warned Dory to avoid the undertow that eventually swept her away and ended up bring her to Marlin and Nemo with no idea what she had left behind.

Dory, realizing her parents are out there wants to take another trip across the ocean to find them. Marlin is reluctant and hopes she will forget this idea like she does everything else, but Nemo agrees with Dory and the trio set out with the sea turtles across the ocean to California’s Monterey Marine Life Institute. Dory is grabbed by workers as they get to the coast (just lie Nemo was in the original) and taken into quarantine. Marlin and Nemo make new friends with sea lions Rudder (voice of Dominic West) and Fluke (voice of Idris Elba). Fluke calls down a quirky sea bird to carry the father and son into the institute to find Dory.

Wilson and Farmiga return as Ed and Lorraine Warren to battle a demonic presence across the pond in “The Conjuring 2.”

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren, sharing with us the case they investigated immediately following the events in Amityville that the press referred to as “England’s Amityville” but we call it “The Conjuring 2.” Ed and Lorraine were asked by the church to hold a séance in the Amityville house where the Lutz family was terrorize. Lorraine saw the murders of the DeFeo family by Ronald DeFeo and then was face to face with a demon dressed as a nun that showed her the death of her husband Ed. The events of Amityville rattle Lorraine, add the press tour with the Warrens constantly having to defend themselves against the accusations of being hoaxes was exhausting to her. Lorraine asked Ed to stop exorcising demonic spirits before it ends up killing them. Ed agreed and then presented Lorraine with a painting that he had done with the same demonic nun on it that Lorraine saw in Amityville. Lorraine again is visited by the being and sees Ed dead again.
