Coco – By Disney
I took my son and his best friend to the cinema for their first time to watch the new Disney film ‘Coco’.
As this was their first time they did get spoilt. We bought them the kids special which came free with a Paddington Bear lunch box. We also took them to Kaspers after for ice cream because sitting still for a whole film was a big challenge for a 3 and 4 year old.
After the film we let them pose and dance on the red carpet. I’m glad we went during half term because the place was empty.
Review of Coco
This Disney film is about the Mexican Day of the Dead festival. The MC is a boy named Miguel who befriends a stray dog that’s actually his spirit guide. His family are against music and he really wants to play guitar and sing. His rebellion against his family sets on a path that causes him to crossover to the underworld. To return home he needs a blessing from his dead ancestors before he becomes permanently dead. But, they want to add a condition that he can’t ever perform music again. So he looks for the relative his family disowned to get the blessing without the condition.
There are a lot of themes about death explored in the film and there was a few occasions I got choked up.
It was a good film with a decent storyline. It’s worth watching but it’s unlikely to become one of those classic films that you could watch forever.
