Thoughts while watching Coco (+ The Frozen “Short”)
Frozen Clip (Olaf’s Frozen Adventure)
- There were a total of 6 songs
- “I’m sorry Anna, it was my fault we don’t have a family tradition” [- Elsa] That’s really sad if you think about it.
- Someone said that their family tradition is making cookies that look like Norway so if you aren’t sure, Norway being their country is canon probably
- Do you wanna build a snowman
- The last song was the best for me, because anyone can sing it out of context and the way Elsa sings
- Elsa sounded different on the third song, it was weird
It was okay I guess. I just don’t know why they showed this instead of those original animated shorts you know?
- The streets look so much like the provincial parts of my country too, and I could see why the people that came from Mexico agreed that Disney portrayed their home well
- My dad laUGHED WHEN ERNESTO DIED PSASPE
- from what I could tell and what other people said, the actual playing of the guitar was good! (Their fingers were usually in the right place!)
- I saw a child in the land of the dead
- I WANNA DRAW PEPITA
- “ALL OF THEM ARE ME”
- Poco Loco was so good man and I wanna sing it and dance
- the scene where Miguel told Lady Imelda that she’ll never understand him really got me
- That’s a really sad plot twist
- Damn dem water looks good
- Oh my god the second plot twist ;-;
- I’m actually crying
- I’m crying again
- You can hear the entire theater sniffing really loud lol
Before coming in, I actually hated or just disliked the idea of the Coco movie, for the reason being that I believed it when people said that it was going to be a copy of The Book of Life. And so, I told everyone I knew that I wasn’t going to see it and that I thought it was going to be terrible, perhaps not animation wise, but in how they portray the characters, the world, and so on. Basically, I thought Pixar would not do a good job. But, here I am.
I really enjoyed the movie, and I understood why those who are Mexican, and some critics I’ve seen, really liked Coco. They really respected their culture and values. The music was fantastic, I really wanted to sing them, and man I wanted to get up and dance, and I hate dancing. The story was also really well done, not once did one part seem out of place for me, and when they want to make you feel it, they do a good job.
As for how it relates to The Book of Life? We’ll, the similarities are that it included the day of the dead, the protagonist entering the world of the dead, and that the protagonist had a family that didn’t like music in the beginning. Other than that, Coco really was its own thing. It had good and mostly original music, i think they’re original, and a different story and concluding moral. Should you watch it? Absolutely, when you have the time and interest. Man, maybe I shouldn’t doubt Pixar? They’ve just proven again how they are one of the best storytellers of all time.
