A Film Review on Coco

The day before yesterday I made an appointment with my roommates to go to see the movie Coco, about which I saw a lot of reviews in my friend circle, and today I saw the movie finally.

The whole film begins with a brief introduction in the fashion of paper-cuts about the main character's family, which is a different kettle of fish. Different from other Mexican families, it hates music and chooses making shoes.

Then the story starts. Miguel, a 12-year-old boy, sets his heart on music, but is discouraged by his family. He has always been admiring God of Song, who died under a bell when performing. In the process of pursuing his dream, Miguel entered into another fantastic world of the dead by accident, where he came across his dead family and a poor musician Hector. Afterwards they embarked on a wonderful journey together.

The inspiration of the film springs from the traditional festival in Mexico - The Day of the Dead when Mexicans hold a memorial ceremony for the dead. However, the ceremony is not sad, but happy. People sing and dance to celebrate the annual family reunion. In their eyes, death is the highest meaning of life. Also, what is dreadful is not being dead, but being forgotten.

From my perspective, there are several factors contributing to the film's success. To begin with, it goes without saying that excellent production team is fundamental. Having worked out several outstanding movies, Pixar definitely is capable of providing an amazing visual feast for people once again.

Additionally, with well-designed plots and colourful scenes, the action comedy wins high praise from the viewers. It is beyond doubt that Coco has a happy ending owing to the fact that only a warm and tearful movie about family can offset the cold of winter, that is, a hot "Coco" is a perfect drink for such cold weather.

What's more, tuneful music is essential. I still remember the theme song "Remember Me", which is easy to sing and likely to be binge-listened. The lyrics of the song are warm, not to mention the melody.

Last but not least, the film is meant to tell us that when confronted with family and dream, family is the one that should be given more weight. In order to become famous, God of Song poisoned his musical partner Hector and stole his songs and guitar, which was shameless. Meanwhile, in reality, Hector wrote the signature song "Remember Me" for his daughter Coco, not for the world. He wanted to be a good father. For him, that was what counted.

As far as I am concerned, the film is worth your ticket, which will live up to your expectation. Maybe you will shed tears. Remember to bring some tissues and you will find that skeletons are really cute!

It's apparent that COCO has achieved success both in the public praise and box office. I watched the movie last saturday and what impressed me most is the fantastic visual effect. Disney productions never let us down on that term as if we were in the fairy tales! And the family love also touched me deeply.

Though I have not watched the movie, I only saw some episodes of how the movie was made. I just want to say filming a good movie needs much enthusiasm and vigor. And this is the Secret of Disney and PAS’s Success. COCO stages a beautiful scene of Mexico before us. Probably Mexico will be listed on the tourist destination list by many spectators.

I can not help watching this movie next week! I saw many bloggers on microblog recommend this movie. They said this movie is worth binge-watching. I am moved deeply by a sentence: What is dreadful is not being dead, but being forgotten. It occurs to me that we should cherish people who love me and family is more important than other superficial things in the world.

hhh... We watched this fantastic moive together! It is so touching and impressed me deeply. I cried at the end of the moive not only because the littile boy'dream has finally become true, but also has his family reunited again. Though it is an animated moive, it is suitable for both children and adults.

I couldn't agree more! Healing films like this always succeed in catching our attention. Well, I have to say, Disney productions just have an everlasting magic to console our exhausted souls. Simple theme, but deep meanings.

I was through with the movie with watery eyes too. For those who are famous, they don't have to be afraid of death because people will always remember them; while for ordinary people, if their family choose to forget them, then that must be more terrible than death. So family should be given the top priority. Take our family into account first.

I have the same feelings as you. With the commitment of enthusiasm and vigor, plus efforts, we can make wonders, not to mention a good movie. I used to have little knowledge about Mexico so I didn't regard it as fantastic. However, after watching Coco, I prefer to consider Mexico as a world of fairy tales. Can't wait to visit there!

Indeed, a good movie are worth watching a hundred times for it  tells us the easily understood truth by means of  animation. In addition, family is really what counts most. Nothing can be compared with it.

I haven't seen such a moving film for a long time. Everytime we watch a film, we will download its theme song and binge-listen it. This time, without exception, I have faved the song and when I feel depressed, it will comfort me.

Aha, I think you should learn some basic Spanish such as Hola, Gracias before your journey.
