Before we get onto the fun and humorous movie of the month, we’ll start out with some salty tears from Coco. First off, I saw this movie at 11pm, so I was already pretty exhausted after our Thanksgiving feast. Secondly, I was really not expecting to love the Frozen short as much as I did. I knew that I was in for a long night once I started wiping tears away about a snowman.
Coco itself was absolutely astounding. It was visually gorgeous, the music was on point, the voice actor for Miguel was adorable and lovable and all the characters were intriguing and funny. Despite it being fairly obvious now, I did not see the plot twist within the movie and really loved the ending. I wasn’t sure that I was going to cry at all until the last 5 minutes, when you could hear the whole theater gasping and sniffling their noses. This was such a great movie about mexican culture and the day of the dead. I’m so happy that they’ve created such a beautiful film to help represent that culture and I definitely need to go see it again. A 5 star film and my roomates and I agreed that it was on par with Toy Story 3 and I personally felt like it was better than Inside Out!
