Coco is an incredibly heartwarming film about the importance of family and following your dreams. The film truly embraces Mexican culture as the plot revolves around the Day of the Dead and its importance to Mexican traditions. The film teaches audiences how and why the day is celebrated, and plenty of cultural aspects of Mexican traditions are incorporated in the film such as alebrijes and sugar skulls. Before seeing this film, I thought Coco was very similar to The Book of Life, another film about Mexican culture and tradition, but after watching it, I realized that the plots for the two movies are quite different and that the story is original. The animation in this film is incredible, too. The Land of the Dead in Coco left me in awe; it was extremely beautiful with bright, bold colours, and Pixar paid great attention to detail and symbolism. The music also adhered to the theme of Mexican tradition in the story; the film included mariachi bands and many parts of the songs sung were performed in Spanish. Additionally, the story and plot itself were well developed, and the ending, in my opinion, was completely unexpected but very clever, well-thought-out, and lovely. 5/5 stars.

The boy gets back to his world and his family finally acknowledges his grandpa and their love of him which before they wouldn't do over an old conflict in the entertainment industry.

Magnificent in so many respects. Everyone involved should be showered with praise--and then probably retire in much-deserved glory, because they cannot possibly surpass their achievement here.

Adding my bravo to all the critics--this is a wonderfully imaginative animation.

Awesome family movie! We all loved it and had tears, kids and adults.

In my mind, this is up there in the Disney pantheon with The Lion King, Jungle Boy, and Robin Hood. It has a depth that adults will enjoy, but also sparkling creativity. Every scene is loaded with detail, so that you can replay the movie just to see all there is to see. I take it down a half-notch because the songs, while effective for the story, are not catchy.

Many quotes in IMDb already and thanks to those contributors. Here is my favorite and an unexpected jargon from mijo to papi:

Miguel: [to Héctor] A minute ago I thought I was related to a murderer! You're a total upgrade!
[Héctor gives Miguel an annoyed look]

Apr 25, 2018

Héctor: [sings] Remember me, though I have to say goodbye / Remember me, don't let it make you cry / For even if I'm far away, I hold you in my heart / I sing a secret song to you, each night we are apart / Remember me, though I have to travel far / Remember me, each time you hear a sad guitar / Know that I'm with you, the only way that I can be / Until you're in my arms again, remember me...
