Seize this film, Certainly
Coco is a film co-written and directed by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina. The instant I saw the trailer of this film, I knew it will be the best for 2017's animated films. And seeing a film after a very long wait proved that I was right.

Plot: Migues, an aspiring musician, reaches the Land of the Dead by accidently playing the deceased Ernesto de la Cruz's guitar.

Story and direction: Pixar for me is the animation company that not only provided some great characters and films, but also with each film gives something that latches on to you for the rest of your life. That in Coco is the theme. Its the importance of family that takes prime importance in the story. This theme is so well crafted in the story. Then the animation. I was mesmerized by the kind of animation this film had especially the designs for the land of the dead. It felt like I was travelling through that place. It felt very live-like. I might be wrong about this fact but I have never seen Spanish culture so very correctly depicted in any film. It respected the culture and showed the culture in its various colors. The songs and background score by Micheal Giacchino were awesome. It further enriched the Spanish culture. But this film had a tiny little fault. I felt that in some places the film took a route that was seen before in many films.

Favorite Scene: it would be the scene where Miguel tries to play the guitar while seeing a music video of Ernesto de la Cruz on TV. The passion and love that Miguel has for music is clearly visible in this particular scene.

Verdict: Pixar again proves why it is the best when it comes to animated films. This film will be remembered for a long time in the minds of people. Watch this film certainly, it has a lot of entertaining and emotional value that will be woven into your hearts forever.

I am going with a 9/10.

The majority of Pixar films are amazing and Coco is no exception. It has such a heartfelt and emotional story with likeable and charming characters and beautiful songs. I adore the voice cast and Anthony Gonzales is especially great as Miguel. The animation is some of the best I have ever seen and the entire movie is a visual feast. My only real issue with the film is the first act that I feel takes a bit to long to get going.

Soulfully Beautiful
In a classic tale of discovering inner self, Coco colorfully displays the Mexican culture and cacophony during the Day of the Dead festival. The protagonist, Miguel, dreams to perform and sing like his great great grandfather, but is prohibited by his family due to past events. Determined to prove himself, he discovers a clue, when a photo frame breaks and reveals his great great grandfather holding a guitar, known to be owned by the great singer Ernesto. He travels to the Land of the Dead and discovers his deceased family and asks a blessing from his great great grandmother, Imelda, to make him a famous singer. She, however, refuses and blesses him to just go back to the Land of the Living instead. Furious, he escapes, only to find a rather unlucky musician, Hector, who requests Miguel to just keep his photo in the Land of the Living, so that his memory remains alive.

After a great confusion between his deceased ancestors and the encounter with Ernesto, the mystery unravels that Hector is his great great grandfather and not Ernesto. It is revealed that Ernesto poisoned Hector, when he wanted to leave his musical journey, just to go back to his daughter, Coco, and took away all of Hector's musical credit as his own. This embarks a tough fight as Ernesto imprisons Miguel, so that Hector is never remembered. Determined to get back to his home, Miguel eventually wins and comes back just in time to help his great grandmother, Coco, remember her father and keep Hector's memories alive.

This movie has the best art direction and the creativity is at its best. The delicate features of the various characters, especially as skeletons, is portrayed very well. The soundtrack is refreshing and has a heavy cultural influence, which provides gravity to the story line. As any other Disney movie, a lot of emphasis is placed on values and character. All in all, this movie deserves the credit it has been receiving from critics and is a spectacular movie to watch with kids.
