Coco2018’s Golden Globe -Best Animation Motion PictureIf this movie doesn’t quite reach the highest level of Pixar masterpieces, it plays a time-tested tune with captivating originality and flair. -The New York TimesCOCO was being honoured as ‘Best Animation Motion Picture’ and ‘Pixar’s Best Movies in Years’. Film critics described Coco as ‘Strums the family heartstrings’ and a ‘Strong Oscar contender’. For me, it’s definitely the rare movie that succeeds on almost every level, where each animation character, scene, costume, and the multilayered to make a film worth repeated viewings. You might question, what exactly brought ‘COCO’ all these loud cheers, countless rounds of applause and a surprisingly great success?Coco is the sprightly story of a young boy Miguel who dreams to be an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz, in spite of his family’s generations-old ban on music. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead by “borrowing” de la Cruz’s famous guitar. There, he meets departed members of his own family and ultimately, with the help of a charming trickster named Héctor, de la Cruz himself. Miguel and Héctor, the two new friends embark on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history. The plot is full of unpredictable twists and turns. You never get to know what’s going to happen in the next second. Sitting in a cinema feels like on a roller coaster riding at almost 2 hours, the film never runs out of steam. The ups and downs fortunes, as well as the thrilling story, had aroused the inspiration of audience. Not only the storyboard is eye catching, the wonderful 3D computer animation had made the movie itself a fantastic success. The realistic and excellent CGI animation had perfectly lighted-up and created the atmosphere for the story and had proven that the decline of Pixar Animation Studios since its acquisition by Disney to be wrong.Film Critic Abraham F. comments, “It is nice to see Disney / Pixar incorporate different cultures into their movies. Pixar’s animations, storyline and character development really excel here. I am glad to see all that in an animated film geared for kids and families.”Does Coco measure up to Pixar’s best overall? Coco is perfect in the way it is but I believe more and more ‘Best movie of the year’ would be produced by them in the near future. Maybe this one doesn’t have the intelligence of Inside Out, the experimentalism of Wall-E, the bombast of The Incredibles, or the pure lovable nature of Monsters, Inc., but it does show Pixar and Disney taking a step in right, creative direction again.”Will bring you to tears.””Remember meThough I have to say goodbyeRemember meDon’t let it make you cry”Family and legacy as expressed through storytelling and song: this is the deeper Family and legacy as expressed through storytelling and song: this is the deeper preoccupation of “Coco.” One of the fascinating things about the movie is the way it builds its plot around members of Miguel’s family, living and dead, as they battle to determine the official narrative of Miguel’s great-great grandfather and what his disappearance from the narrative meant for the extended clan. Elements such as death and life rarely appears in any Disney animation movie, Coco is a movie entirely revolving around the concept of death and the after-life.Coco was drawing heavily on Mexican culture and traditional designs. It’s based on many historical references about the Mexican holiday, Day of The Death which is quite spectacular as a kids movie. Especially efficient in promoting Mexican culture traditions to the new generation in a special way. As a musical movie, it has catchy music which matches with the comprehensible plot and helps with emotional atmosphere building a lot. The song ‘Remember Me’ was played by a different character in different places for 3 times in the movie. Different version brought out 3 contrasting feelings to the audience and leads the storyline. The last sing of this song strums the audience heartstrings.As a Pixar film always does, “Coco” is also building toward emotionally overwhelming moments, so stealthily that you may be surprised to find yourself wiping away a tear even though the studio has been using the sneak-attack playbook for decades.From Toy Story to Finding Dory, 30 years of Pixar the biggest hit with the highest profit is definitely Coco. It’s a movie just opened and already has set a box-office record in Mexico, becoming the top film as measured in local currency. It’s a movie does a great job exploring the themes of love and loss. It’s a movie has a powerful theme and satisfying ending. Where Coco shines most brightly—literally—is in its vibrant visuals, which rely on a palette of fluorescent greens, blues, yellows, and oranges. In this telling, the Land of the Dead is not a fearsome place for anyone, but rather a never-ending skeleton party conducted in a glorious multi-tiered city that rises from sea-level houseboats to vast, imperious towers inhabited by celebrities such as de la Cruz—all of them connected by arched bridges and aerial trams. Death doesn’t represents ‘goodbye forever’ anymore, but another wonderful world surrounding by family’s love.Summarising all above, Coco is a deeply moving, thought-provoking and very impressive movie. In the meantime, my advice is to watch Coco with your family and brings a few packs of tissue papers, let’s give thanks together.
