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. See more »

Stunning, beautiful, colorful, powerful, sad, happy. A joy of a ride.
28 October 2017 | by fjhuerta-2See all my reviews

I may be biased, since this movie portrayed perfectly what life is all about in a small Mexican town.

Or, perhaps I wanted to see Pixar really get back on the game. Go beyond Up, and make a complete movie that was as beautiful as the first 20 minutes of Wall-E.

I got my wish.

This is the movie I wanted Pixar to make, once again. A movie about what family means. A movie about the choices we make, and the roads not taken.

This is a stunning work of art. It'll move you from happiness to tears, from memories of the past to the joy of the future. To understanding, to remembrance. To the joys and pains of being alive.

I can't even begin to imagine how Pixar made a movie about life and death that is so colorful, so absorbing, so poignant, and so approachable for kids, and with so many layers upon layers upon layers of meaning and significance for adults.

To watch Coco is to love Coco, and to remember the Cocos in your life that are no longer among us.

Thank you, Pixar.
