Coco, Fifty Shades Freed and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

View Chris Kavan's Profile

Fall is nearly upon us (despite the fact it's still going to be in the 90s around here), and that means one thing - Oscar bait! Okay, we have a little time left, but, believe me, soon enough we're going to be inundated with period dramas, historical epics and inspirational true-life stories. But, for this week, we can breath easy, and the MPAA can give us something to talk about with the latest from Pixar along with the (I can hope) final film in every housewife's soft core BDSM fantasy as Fifty Shades gets freed. A mini update, but I can't complain too much - I saw It and am still impressed by how good It turned out.

Disney, and by extension, Pixar, rarely makes a misstep. Even when they give us Cars 3, it turns out pretty good in the end. But it's when they truly try something different that they tend to stand out the most, and they look to hit another home run with the vibrant and music-infused Coco. The film follows the young Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez) who idolizes Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), a famous musician, despite the fact his family has a mysterious, generations-long ban on music. A series of events lands Miguel in the Land of the Dead, where he is guided by a friendly trickster, Hector (Gael García Bernal) where he will learn about the true history of his family in an attempt to return to the land of the living. The trailers for this look phenomenal and, aside from The Book of Life, I can't think of another animated film that has tapped in to Latino culture. With the added impact of the Pixar and Disney name, Coco should be another huge hit for the studio. Animation has been a bit flat this year - full of decent, if a bit underwhelming, sequels. I have a feeling this is exactly the kind of film we need to remind us of why animation remains relevant to adults as well as children. Rated PG for thematic elements.

On the exact opposite side of the spectrum we have Fifty Shades Freed. I have yet to watch either Fifty Shades of Grey or Fifty Shades Darker, but, from what I hear, I haven't missed much. Based on the best-selling books from E.L. James, the story concerns Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), his love for Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), and his penchant for engaging in some light bondage. Of course, things can't be that easy as members of his family and psychotic ex-girlfriends muddle things up from time to time. Plus, how can films concerning so much sex be so boring? Junk food for the soul, I say, I can think of much better ways to spend my time but, hey, if it trips your trigger (guys or gals), by all means, you deserve another spanking. Rated R for strong sexual content, nudity, and language.
