tbh i loved the movie to death but one of the main problems i had with book of life was Maria, which was expected but still pretty disappointing

she was the Exceptional Woman(TM). i got really sick really fast of her being like “oh did I mention i studied fencing/kung fu while I was studying as a FRICKING FINISHING SCHOOL FOR YOUNG WOMEN”

i’m all about the idea of a woman being just as capable as a man but. tbh Joaquin studied real fighting for his whole life, and Manolo studied bullfighting [which is more about form and entertainment, but still requires one to be fit and think fast].

Maria seemed like the kind of person who would sneak out of school and take fencing/martial arts during her free time, but it was never explained that way. it was a throwaway gag instead of another insight into her determination to not be helpless and i did not approve

JUST GOT BACK FROM SEEING THE BOOK OF LIFE AND I AM FRICKING GLOWING OH MY GOSH

I STARTED CRYING LIKE 10 MINUTES INTO THE MOVIE AND LITERALLY DID NOT STOP UNTIL THE MOVIE WAS OVER HOLY HECK I HAVE NOT SHED SO MANY TEARS SINCE THE FALL
