Right before Thanksgiving our family had the opportunity to see a screening of Coco. What a heartwarming family movie! Even my 14 year old son enjoyed it! So I thought it was perfect timing when he had a “take your kid to work day” and he is spending the day learning about the blog with me. So the rest of this post/review is all his…. Take it away Andrew….
Disney Pixar’s CoCo was a great sweet and inspiring film with a well put together story. It also had an unexpected plot twist. The movie starts off with a generational family story that a husband, wife and daughter all love and share music, but the husband leaves to pursue his love of music leaving his wife and daughter behind. We later find out this is the ancestors of the music loving main character Miguel. His great, great grandfather’s decision is what made the entire family turn their backs on music and learn to make shoes instead. Miguel doesn’t want to make shoes he wants to play music at the plaza and be like his idol the famous Ernesto de la Cruz the greatest musician in Mexico.
Miguel sneaks into the grave of Ernesto de la Cruz to “borrow” his famous guitar so he can play in the plaza. Instead Miguel gets transported to the Land of The Dead. Miguel has a curse placed on himself for stealing an item of the dead and he needs a blessing from a family member to get back to the Land of the Living. His Great Great grandmother gives him a blessing to go back but also to never play music again, Miguel dislikes this but takes the blessing. He ends up back at the grave of de la Cruz to put the guitar back in place, but he takes it AGAIN and goes back to the Land of The Dead. Then Miguel has to find his own way to get back to the living before Day Of The Dead is over.
I think CoCo was a great movie and recommend it to family’s. Disney Pixar did such a great job that my mom and I cried the last 10 minutes. It definitely exceeded my expectations, Awesome movie!!!
Why do I post about Disney, Marvel and DreamWorks Movies? Because they are fun! I receive all kinds of great info to share with you about on the newest films. In return, I often get to see a pre-screen of these movies. Then I can tell you if you should spend your money on a ticket… or wait for DVD!
