“Success doesn’t come for free. You have to do whatever it takes to seize your moment.” – Ernesto De La Cruz
Okay, okay, I know I’m wayyyyy too late but like everyone says, it’s never too late to watch a Disney movie.
Coco is a movie about a Mexican kid named Miguel who loves music to his death, however because of his family’s ban on music, they wouldn’t let him play. Desperate to become a talented singer like his idol Ernesto De La Cruz, Miguel unexpectedly finds himself in the Land of the Dead. There he meets a trickster named Hector and the two of them embark on a wonderful journey filled with music, love, tradition and family history.
The moment I saw that it was produced by Pixar Animation studios, I knew what was coming; Uncontroable tears and abundant emotions.
By the way, let me just mention to you that there won’t be any bad remarks because I absolutely loved the movie! Heck, Its the best movie of the month for me!
The story was so touching, I literally cried. No joke. I get too emotional, too easily.
The artwork, the songs, and the characters were all too perfect. There was not a moment where I felt like the movie had lost its magic. There was agitations and sentiments until the very end.
Hats off to such spectacular imagination.
Its a movie that has to be watched again. A movie that will make you cry one more time. One more time. And one more time.
At first, I wondered why the name was Coco but then as the story progressed, it all made sense. The real story belongs to Mama Coco, Miguel’s great grandmother.
I have a very sensitive spot when it comes to Grandma’s and Grandpa’s and that’s the reason why I had to secretly wipe my tears before my family could see me (My sister saw me though…it was embarrassing)
Beaides the emotions, there were a couple of comedic aspects as well that made the movie enjoyable to watch.
Miguel’s passion for singing and going too far to reach his dream is relatable with many of us but the main moral of the story was that family comes first. They say what’s best for us. They care about us and about our dreams and yet, it’s us (the kids) that don’t understand them properly. We must listen to our Family because they are the ones to guide us, be it to our house or our dreams.
My rating: 5/5
