I did a Disney double bill tonight by watching Moana and Finding Dory back-to-back. Starting with Moana, you can’t find fault in the brilliant visuals, and it was mostly fine in terms of keeping my interest, but I wasn’t particularly engaged. I didn’t care for all of the songs, so the movie constantly lost me during those bits — especially the ballads. It’s the same thing that bugged me with Frozen — I’m fine with watching a musical, but it’s a bummer when you really don’t care about any of the songs. I’d say my favorite sequence was the coconut attack. And anything with the crazy chicken.
