KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Is "Finding Dory" all wet? Does "The Beatles: Eight Days a Week" rock? FOX 4's Russ Simmons has your answers in this week's Popcorn Bag Home Video Reviews.

 

1) FINDING DORY (PG)

Walt Disney/Pixar

RUSS

It’s taken Pixar 13 years to come up with a sequel to the smash animated hit, “Finding Nemo.” But even after all these years, this fish is still fresh. Ellen DeGeneres again provides the voice for the forgetful blue tang in the high seas adventure, “Finding Dory."While the movie lacks the strong story of its predecessor, there’s still an ocean of imagination on display, from the amazing visuals to the snappy sense of humor. And, yes, you may need a Kleenex or two. It may be lesser Pixar, but it's still better than most movies, animated or otherwise.

SHAWN says all Pixar does is create classics. Now not as good as the original but 'Finding Dory' is still an amazing animated feature.

Oscar-winning director Ron Howard turns his attention to the Fab Four with his compelling and immersive documentary about The Beatles during their heyday. “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week –The Touring Years” boasts a wealth of archival footage, catchy music and talking head memories from everyone involved, plus celebrity interviews with Beatles fans like Elvis Costello and Whoopie Goldberg. If you're too young to remember or if needed a reminder of how great this band was, this is it.

SHAWN says this is a top-notch and interesting documentary.
