Coco (Movie Review)

Comments 9 Standard


Coco is about a Mexican boy whose family forbids music. Miguel is a musician, no matter how often his abuela tells him how music almost ruined his family. Miguel plans to perform on Día de Muertos in hopes of becoming as famous as his hero, Ernesto de la Cruz. Instead, Miguel finds himself in The Land of the Dead. He must make it back home by sunrise if he wants to stay alive.


I don’t know what it is about these movies, but I always end up so emotional. I was in tears (I’m talking sniffly nose and sweating eyes) by the end of Coco. I hadn’t given this movie much thought when it first came out. It looked cute but anything involving death tends to creep me out. I did, however, feel some serious Nightmare Before Christmas vibes but that wasn’t enough to get me to go see it.

I was getting my hair done by a friend and she suggested I watch it. The braiding process took quite a few hours, so that was plenty of time to get through Coco and a few other movies. 

Long story short, I loved Coco. It is such a beautiful movie with some turns that I wasn’t expecting. It taught wonderful lessons and the music was great! I wish Coco had gotten more attention when it was in theaters. Make sure to check this out on Netflix.

  3. I’m going to watch Coco this month. I haven’t had much times to watch movies lately. And I think Coco being on Netflix also contributing to the issue as I feel no rush! 😀

  4. I loved this one!! My husband and I tried to resist because it reminded us so much of The Book of Life. We ended up watching it and LOVED it! I also love The Book of Life. They are similar because they are about the Day of the Dead but different stories.
