Okay, yes, it’s pretty amusing that a couple of days ago I wrote a post called ‘Koko’, and now I’m writing one called ‘Coco.’ (no Cocoa post coming later this week.) (I crack myself up sometimes. LOL)
And yes, I’m a little bit slow on getting on the Coco (the Pixar movie) train. I have literally no excuse. I LOVE Halloween. I LOVE Day of the Dead stuff. LOVE IT, I tell you. Why didn’t I see this movie (in all its glory) in a theater last year? I have absolutely no excuse, except I don’t tend to like to share my movie experience with a bunch of noisy kids. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
But I have to tell you, this is now I think my most favorite animated film of all time, and there have been some GREAT ones.
But the story is amazing; sweet, tender, humorous; it has it all.
The visual graphics/effects, especially of animated skeletons, is AMAZING.
The topic…well, like I said, Halloween is very dear to my heart, and the whole history and tradition of Mexico especially Dia de los Muertos…..I adore. To see it so well played out, so adoringly and faithfully, warmed the cockles of my heart.
Now I have to find some ‘Pops’ characters from the movie to own. I have my eyes on your Hector and Imelda!
