The Music of Coco
I give the Coco Blu-ray an A.
First thought while watching this Blu-ray? A super colorful and positive film about never giving up on your dreams and the importance of family.
I rarely give Blu-ray’s an A but this one blew me away. The music, the animation, the colors, and the characters. Did I mention the music?
I never really liked animation but as I’ve gotten older I have found a few that I absolutely love including this one. It is interesting to see how much technology has evolved and the process it takes to create a film like this. Every scene was like a work of art with a plethora of colors. You couldn’t help but be in a good mood due to the ambiance of this film. My favorite part? The characters. I absolutely loved the Land of the Dead where Miguel meets Hector and the relationship between them that grows throughout the film with an added twist at the end. I can’t forget the Music. It definitely added to the film. Anthony Gonzalez who plays Miguel is a talented young man who also sang a few of the songs. The music definitely captured the soul of the film and added to the essence of the story, and the culture.
Catch Coco out on Blu-ray, DVD, & Digital HD February 27, 2018!
