| A Pure Delight!
Pixar has done it AGAIN! 'Coco' is a yet another delightful ride from the prolific animation studio, who's winning streak seems to never end. And that's good for all, since 'Coco' is all heart & soul, rewarding the moviegoer wholeheartedly.

'Coco' Synopsis: Aspiring musician Miguel, confronted with his family's ancestral ban on music, enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.

'Coco' captures the themes of Life & Death, with genuine feeling. Themes of family, passion, defeat & redemption also are explored here, but with humor & real emotion. While I laughed for a good share of this winning story, I also found myself weeping in the film's final-act. This is a true fantasy-adventure, that gives life & death true meaning.

Adrian Molina & Matthew Aldrich's Screenplay is excellent. Lee Unkrich's Direction is colorful. And of course, the Animation is extraordinary. 'Coco' unfolds gorgeously & not for a second, does the pace drop.

Vocal-Performances are top-notch! Anthony Gonzalez as Miguel, the protagonist, is a joy, Gael García Bernal s Héctor Rivera, a charming trickster in the Land of the Dead, Benjamin Bratt as Ernesto de la Cruz, the most famous musician in the history of Mexico and Miguel's idol & Ana Ofelia Murguía as Mamá Socorro "Coco" Rivera, Miguel's great-grandmother, stand out. And yes, this is a Film made in America about Mexicans & their tradition. Take That, Mr. President!

On the whole, 'Coco' deserves all your time & money. Don't Miss It. Oscars, are you ready?

Quotes

Héctor: Ernesto, STOP!
Héctor: Leave the boy alone.
Ernesto de la Cruz: I've worked too hard, Hector. Too hard to let him destroy everything.
Héctor: He's a living child, Ernesto.
Ernesto de la Cruz: HE'S A THREAT!
Ernesto de la Cruz: You think I'd let him go back to the land of the living WITH YOUR PHOTO? TO KEEP YOUR MEMORY ALIVE...


Goofs

When Miguel returns to the Land of the Living at sunrise, the doors to Ernesto's tomb are sitting open to allow him out, despite the fact that they were closed and locked earlier in the film. The guitar being on the floor proves that no one entered while Miguel was gone - otherwise, they would have returned it to its spot on the wall.


Crazy Credits

The Walt Disney Pictures opening logo's music, the orchestral version of "When You Wish Upon a Star", is played in the Mexican mariachi style.
