11. "Finding Dory" (Andrew Stanton, 2016)
Finding Dory feels smaller than the original, and there’s an easy, simple quality to the way the story unfolds that keeps it from ever achieving the sort of emotional stakes that made the first film great, but there is still some real charm on display. It helps that they take the central joke about Dory’s memory and turn it into a real emotional foundation that pays off. If nothing else, Pixar is still expert at making us weep real tears for their digital creations. — Drew McWeeny
