Top 10 Best Things About Coco (2017)

I saw this movie last week and recently reviewed it. Coco is definitely in my top 3 favorite movies of the year. This list contains reasons about what you or I thought were the best parts about the movie. I made this list mostly because it wasn't made already, and I felt it should.

The Top Ten

1 The music

The score of this movie is fantastic. It has that symphony feel as well as that Hispanic/Latin feel combined, it is hard to describe it. And "Remember Me" is a great song! - Phillip873

The music is so emotional. The songs really raise the bar for non-Pixar Disney movies.

I'm hoping that "Remember Me" snags the Oscar for Best Original Song. It would be the Lopezes second win in that category after "Let it Go". - phillysports

2 The characters

I don't know if I have a favorite character really, maybe Hector. The characters in this movie all have great character designs and are well rounded and written. I also like how the skeletons fall apart when they run into something, makes a funny gag. - Phillip873

3 The animation

Hot damn, this movie is animated just beautifully. I shouldn't be surprised however because it's Disney/Pixar, which they are known for their great animation quality! - Phillip873

Almost any animation by Pixar is amazing - Neonco31

4 The emotional impact

I teared up a bit in this movie, which I rarely do. I suppose I won't say much though, as it is spoilers, but some parts of this movie are incredibly sad, maybe bittersweet. - Phillip873

5 The accuracy to Mexican culture

I do have Hispanic descent, and I do know about some Mexican culture. As far as I know, this movie was incredibly accurate to culture in Mexico, it even is very popular in Mexico, because the Mexican people also believe this movie is incredibly well researched. - Phillip873

Actually, no, it is kind of streotypical.

6 The land of the dead

The land of the dead in this movie looks absolutely astonishing in how beautiful and detailed it looked. The animators sure spent a massive amount of time making it look perfect. - Phillip873

7 It is heartwarming

Seriously, by the end of this movie, you feel very warm and happy, because it ends on a good note. - Phillip873

8 The dialogue

Has moments that will make you laugh and cry, great writing. - Phillip873

9 It was not a "The Book of Life" ripoff

I was most worried that this movie was gonna be a ripoff of The Book of Life by Laika studios, which is a movie I liked quite a bit. But this movie focuses way more on family traditional values instead of romance (and I think it's better). - Phillip873

10 The story

If I had to pick something I didn't like about this movie much, it would be its use of lots of cliches. However the story is very well written and supports these cliches we've seen many a time before to make them fresh! - Phillip873

I can't wait to watch this now - Ned964
