Film Report: Coco
Almost the whole world has seen Coco, I don’t even know if this review is going to add any value.
Maybe just pile up on the content we have in the internet world. xD Redundant information.
Have you seen anybody else talk about how their blog is just redundant? Welcome to my world. 😀
Miguel: This isn’t a dream, then – you’re all really out there.
Tía Victoria: You thought we weren’t?
Miguel: Well, I don’t know – I thought it might have been one of those made-up things adults tell kids! Like vitamins.
Tía Victoria: Miguel, vitamins are a real thing!
Miguel: Well, now I’m thinking maybe they could be.
NO. This is for people who still haven’t been able to get themselves to watch COCO, also because of that 20 minutes Frozen film which is 100% skippable.
What is Coco about?
COCO follows Miguel (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez), a young Mexican boy born into a family of Zapatero (shoemakers). For generations, the family has imposed a ban on playing or listening to music because, decades earlier, Miguel’s great-great-grandfather left his great-great-grandmother Imelda and their young daughter, Coco, to become a musician. But Miguel secretly plays the guitar and yearns to become a famous musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), the long-dead singer/actor from Miguel’s hometown. On the Day of the Dead, Miguel fights with his family, steals de la Cruz’s guitar from a crypt, and somehow gets transported to the Land of the Dead. There, Miguel meets up with his deceased relatives and learns he can only return to the world of the living with a dead ancestor’s blessing. Because Mama Imelda (Alanna Ubach) inserts a no-music clause into her blessing, Miguel flees her and the rest of his skeletal relatives in search of de la Cruz, whom he believes to be his great-great-grandfather. Instead, Miguel teams up with Hector (Gael García Bernal), a scheming skeleton who claims to know de la Cruz, on his journey to find the dead idol and earn his blessing, musician to musician.
Film review of COCO.
Before I praise anything. Listen to this song! People should be singing this, why aren’t people doing this? Why are human beings so dumb!?
Now groove to it and follow up with the review.
Here is mainly all the things why I liked Coco.
Because everything in pointers makes everything easy to read and fun to write.
- Pixar+ Disney is setting it’s bar higher every damn time with one distinctive release every year, especially if they are musicals. Coco is a heart-warming experience, filled with outstanding animation, wonderful music, brilliant writing, and creative models which brings out the best of Mexican culture.
- It’s not a typical American film, we have a different culture, Mexican, to see and explore. It’s refreshing to just watch hear the Latino and Mexican cast.
- The movie took on themes like family, aspirations, and music — all the things I am big at. LOVE MUSIC, LOVE FAMILY (also not really love them just trying to live with them) and they have merged it marvellously with the Day of the Dead culture in Mexico. The way this movie talks about possessions and the inevitable loss is beautiful. It won’t hurt but comfort you. They are still there, watching over you and all you have to do is remember them. 🙂 That makes everything, everything better.
- Of course, the storyline had the depth it required with characters which will speak to you.
- The technical part of the film– Pixar is just breaking its boundaries and making it even difficult to even think of coming to close to the kind of work they are bringing in the market. The detailing in each and every frame is just– it gives me heart an ache. How are you doing this Pixar? How?
- Watch it with everyone. NOW, leave everything and watch it now.
