    B+ seems fair.
    The movie would be better if it was shorter, there are some filler scenes with the dog and singing that are completely unnecessary.

    i think this movie was pixar way of telling trump to stfu with the racist remarks against mexico and it worked, a lot of people change their perspective of mexico after this movie

      No, facts don't care about your feelings. A C+ boring movie with a lame twist, about a Mexican murder didn't change people's perspective of Mexico. And, list some of THESE racist remarks about Mexico from Trump. A border is not racist works great for Israel.

    Although I think the book of life and Coco are similar, I loved Coco way better. I will definitely keep watching Coco over and over.
    It’s so beautiful. And I will cry over and over with the film.

    On the Latin Spanish version of Coco and Monster's Inc. the voice actor for Mike Wazowski is the same one as the office skeletton.

    Pixar and Disney are getting pretty predictable. I think we all knew De le Cruz would be a twist villian from the start. I loved the movie though.

    Finally a film about Mexico without a single reference to narcos! Really beautiful meditation on life, death, memory, love, loss,regret and family - quite deep for a film aimed primarily at kids!

    You gave the good dinosaur a B and this a B+? I believe this is a much better film but your rating for the good dinosaur is accurate thus leading me to believe that this should be rated higher.

    I've never cried for 2 hours straight, then I watched this. The purity of the setting, the stunning effects, the family dynamics, all these brown people and their culture being portrayed in a creative and exciting way. FRIDA KAHLO. This movie hit me. Hit me hard as hell.

    I can understand a B+ when you were not infested in the characters. I for example was extremely infested and touched by the characters in this movie and therefore I think this movie was a solid A+

    For people saying *" B+ , give it A+"* dont judge him , even though Coco is nice but some people can't give an A+. All people have different functions in their brain, we have a right to choose what is the best for us . So that's his answer B+ , let him decide , even though *for me* it is A+.........*Peace be upon you*✌✌❤💟🌎🌍🌏

    I'm a little late to the party but I just watched this movie ten minutes ago. Although I completely agree that the whole "kid has a special talent for the one thing his whole family disapproves of" cliché and noticed it right away (which also disconnected me a bit), I think a B+ is putting it down a bit. That is ONE criticism against all the other positive things you correctly mentioned: Voice acting, BEAUTIFUL animation and colours and pictures, great songs, fantastic research done on Mexican culture, etc. I would give it an A.

    It's funny. I saw this movie today, it's a sad story, yes. But i didn't cry in this and somehow in Inside Out works. I did figure out that there are some elements that i already saw some scenes that there are look like from other Disney movies. A kid wants to be a musician, the family doesn't want to, run away, mis-understanding etc. Still a good message for kids. I really enjoy this movie, beautiful colors, nice backgrounds and likeable characters.

    As much as I enjoyed Coco, what I absolutely adored was the music. Un Poco Loco, Proud Corazon, Remember Me, they're all gorgeous songs that had me smiling throughout the movie. I will agree that I had a hard time investing in a lot of the characters, but I still found characters like Hector really endearing. I think Cinemasins can give the movie a lot more credit that I can.

  • GuruR97

    The only group of people disagreeing with his rating is the Latin community. Just because a movie relates to your culture and does it well doesn’t mean it’s an amazing movie. Stop being biased and look at this movie objectively. Really predictable plot, (the real father was obvious the minute he was introduced), and another coming of age story that has nothing to differentiate itself from better ones. Pixar did a great job as usual with animations and attention to detail, but come on people. No way this movie is on the same level as Finding Nemo, Inside Out, or Incredibles.

    I love this movie so much man. Even Lion King, Toy Story 1 or The Incredibles or even UP has this effect on me. It's definitely my favourite Disney/Pixar movie so far. This is the type of shit they should be making, instead of Cars

  • OjaruFan
    OjaruFan 9 months ago

    I really felt that Coco kept recycling elements found in some Disney movies. Protagonist whose views are different from his family? Check. Comedic character who accompanies the protagonist during his/her journey? Check. Animal sidekick? Check.
    Despite that issue, I think it's a really good movie. Highly recommended.

    I compared it more to *Kubo And the Two Strings* than Book of Life. There's more similarity between Coco and Kubo. Both are excellent films. Though similar they are different as well. There's no such thing as originality as everything has been done again and again. I'm tired of hearing this argument of "seeing it done before" bs.

  • lrspaloss
    lrspaloss 9 months ago

    I just recently saw this film and I loved it and thought it deserves an A+. I live with my grandmother who is wheelchair bond and living with dementia so this film really hit home for me as a caregiver, who does feel like familial obligations are holding me back professionally done personally, and the conflicting emotions and guilt I feel for wanting to leave the people I love the most.

  • Nick Johns

    I thought the movie was poop. Too many decisions the characters made, made no sense... ummm he picks up the guitar after being told not to which immediately sends him back to the underworld. For one, picking up a guitar is not playing music. And for two, put the picture back on the frame then pick up the guitar. Many many choices like this made it impossible for me to buy into the story. The only thing perpetuating the plot was the characters’ stupidity.... or another example, all the dead people are surrounding Miguel to catch him..? Why do the care? Oh because it’s sposed to be a scary moment in the movie.. his dead great great granny is extremely insensitive and then all the sudden someone flips a switch and now she’s on his side? 10 seconds ago you were just chasing him all across town yelling and angry... oh, ur just trying to setup something later in ur film... ohhh, and how bout ripping up that photo instead of carrying it with u in ur pocket on stage??! Again another setup. How bout grabbing the petal when it is offered to u instead of staring at it for 5 seconds and then reaching for it in super slomo? Oh because the bad guy needs time to come and stop u. so this is not a B+!!! This is a C-

    Just finished watching this and gotta say it was wayyy better then I ever thought it would be. Has a pretty complex, interesting story and it actually has some pretty dark elements to it for a children's movie (without any spoilers). I'm in my 20's and don't have kids and I LOVED it. If you wanna watch a newer actually good Disney movie, or are looking for a good family/kid movie to watch I'd definitely say give it a go. Easily available on Netflix too.
    Only complaint, and it's very minor, is it starts out a tad bit on the slow side, but it's to introduce you to the family and make you care about them. It picks up pretty quick though, give it a chance.

    • itzdat1k1d DaBawzzz

      And yes not afraid to admit it like others have said, made me cry a little bit quite a few times. It's that emotionally deep at parts. Haven't felt that way about a kid's movie since Tarzan.

  • Randomalistic
    Randomalistic 10 months ago

    I've watched this movie 3 times so far and each viewing, I discover something entirely new about the film.
    * Miguel's family take off their shoes as a weapon because they're shoemakers
    * The cat following Dante in the end scene was Aunt Imelda's alebrije, Peptia. You can tell because the shadow of the lion morphs into a house cat on the wall.
    Not to mention the twist was amazing the first time seeing it, it sets you up to think Miguel's great great grandfather is Ernesto de la Cruz, up to a point that it's painfully obvious. The viewer thinks "Oh, it's obviously that guy." But then it completely turns around once the twist(s) are revealed. Best Pixar film by far. It's cultured, clever, deep, and beautifully animated. 8.7/10

    I’m not racist or anything, but this movie is a little overrated in my opinion. I don’t see why people are calling this the “Best Pixar Movie”, because there is a few cliches like “person has dream but family doesn’t agree with him”, and this movie doesn’t have as much creativity as other Pixar films. Other than that, overrated doesn’t mean that you hate it, I liked this movie and I’ll leave it at that.

    Comparing COCO to Book of Life and faulting one for being too familiar in theme because it also happens to take place during a major Mexican holiday is problematic. It would be like saying, "man, I really liked Home Alone and Scrooged, but it was so distracting that they both took place around Christmas and were only made 2-years apart". This one was an easy A.

  • hatz4me
    hatz4me 11 months ago

    I think part of the “familiarity” of the story is the fact that it’s very culturally specific in how it differentiates itself. The Mexican culture entwined so well into the common “young boy has to balance his dreams and his family’s plans” is a large factor in my opinion. At least in the community that my mom came from businesses and occupations were a family affair and pretty much all businesses are family businesses. Again where my family is from leaving the family business/plan was as good as disownment. I think the Mexican culture that to many would just seem as a pretty wrapping to a rather familiar story is really what makes the story so significant to others.
    By the end of the movie I really wanted to call my mom to get photos of my dead relatives to create an ofrenda even though I’m in a very white part of Canada.

  • Rokuken
    Rokuken 11 months ago

    People who didn’t feel too invested in the movie and characters either has a heart of stone, doesn’t have a very good relationship with their families or simply don’t like to show or express strong emotions. It is well written, has well developed characters and goes straight to the point. What else people want from a movie nowadays? Yes, I am one of those who cried while watching it. It tackles real life relationship of families and how sometimes they forget about others family members. And that is really sad.
