My review for “Coco“. Okay so this movie starts off with a boy named Miguel and he wants to be a musician but everyone in his family hates music and forbids him to play that shit. Like Footloose but with music instead of Dance. He finds out that his great-grandfather, Ernesto de la Cruz, was a great singer and also a bastard and left the family to become the Mexican Elvis. Now it’s Dia de los Muertos aka the Day of the Dead. Where you celebrate dead relatives and friends. While trying to steal his great grandfather’s guitar he dies and is transported to the land of the dead. I am not sure if this is heaven or hell or purgatory. There he hangs out with dead family members and figures out his talents as a musician and the importance of family. Then he learns about DEATH!
Okay so this movie is a good time. It’s 2017 and even the cartoons want to die! The music is great and the characters are fun and it’s about Dia de los Metros and that is funnnnn! You learn a lot of the things you didn’t know about that day also. The animation is nuts but you knew that going in. There are more surprises in this film than you think and that was cool too. It got a little slow in the middle but the twists turned that shit around. Go check this movie out and be happy and sad, and even learn some shit. It’s the best Pixar movie in years!
B. Gael García Bernal plays Hector his friend on the other side. It’s good to dead friends on the other side.
C. Here is Coco. She looks real as fuck.
D. Here is Anthony Gonzalez scaring the shit out of Disney guests.
Here is the best song in the movie.
E. Remember to put up pics of dead people you want to see come visit you on Nov. 1st.
F. Michael Giacchino composed the score. He is brilliant as usual.
G. There was another animated movie about the Day of the Dead called The Book of Life but Channing Tatum, Ron Perlman Christina Applegate and Ice Cube did voices for a movie about Dia de los Muertos you piece it together. Go see COCO!
H. They should have sung Selena at the end then I would have bust out crying.
I. Colorful as fuck!
