WHAT I LIKE?

Toy Story 4 truly honored its roots especially to the service they have rendered to Andy down to their new kid Bonnie. Aside from that, they were able to send a heart-warming message and a very sentimental turnaround of the whole mission and life of Woody. What I like about the 4th installment is that it never get tired of going through the same plot and conflict thus presenting it in a very calm manner this time. It may be less adventurous this time but the movie gave a worthy resolution especially to Woody. I really loved how the contrast of stories from both “toy worlds” complimented on the final scene. Everything was just smooth and light to carry. I loved how they used a Semi-Villain in the film. At least, there were no exaggerations this time. I think they focused purely on emotions paving way for that resolution we all wanted. It still have the characters we loved but “Forky” as the newest Toy character is just adorable & funny. Aside from an impressive visuals and Cinematography, Toy Story 4 really maintained its branding to be one of the most child-friendly Animated Films Hollywood has ever made serving a decent and generous amount of comedy, thrills & lessons that could appeal not only to younger generations but across mature audiences as well.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

If you are expecting some epic adventure this time, Toy Story 4 may not be your cup of tea.

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.
