Coco - Review

"Coco" is a beautifully animated film with plenty of heart to go around, of course knowing it's from Pixar. How the film explores 'Day of the Dead' and it's world by taking a particular culture and doing something incredibly unique with it. Much better than "The Book of Life", I can say that. Each character having their own colorful personality which makes them a enjoy to watch.
You know for a family movie, it's packed with a lot of themes such as: death, murder, and aging, that was handled so maturely.
My issues with the movie is it's villain, because I didn't think this type of story needed one. I won't spoil anything, but doesn't really matter since a lot of twist and turns can be seen a mile way, it gets predicable at times especially towards the end. I'm sorry to say this but "Remember Me" isn't a good song. I mean, it was use well for only that scene, but try and sing it elsewhere, not so much.
Overall rating: If it's says Pixar on the tin, you know what you get. Despite my problems, it's still enjoyable and that ain't a bad thing.
