WHAT I LIKE?
Coco belongs to one of Disney/Pixar’s masterpiece that has truly made its mark in the roaster. What I like about the film is how it creatively and brilliantly interpreted the theory of life after death in a manner that is family-friendly and captivating at the same time. Coco is highly-entertaining and inspiring at the same time. I am impressed on how was the plot laid out. The sequences were great and the phasing was just in parallel with its twist and turns in preparation of a climax that will truly capture your emotion. Coco is a rollercoaster of family values, drama, comedy and adventure that would keep you on your seats until the end. I really loved the part where the after life was shown. It was just mesmerizing and visually-stunning. Sound engineering is impressive too. There were some entertaining musical numbers. I really love the Mexican influence of Coco. Expect a whirlwind of emotions while watching. Never I have expected to cry buckets after. It touched a certain emotion in me that is usually felt when you experience losing someone you love especially your family. Overall, it is a highly-recommended flick rich in various family values and an eye-opener about death and life. Plus, the “Remember Me” OST was sang by Iñigo Pascual.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
Naaah! Coco was way better than Frozen for me.
