Coco – An Animated Movie You Should See


Last night, a friend and I watched Coco.


And super good, to boot.


And Tumblr-approved for avoiding even a whiff of cultural appropriation, which may not matter to all of you, but which did make me feel relieved.

I enjoyed every moment of it, from the art (did I mention GORGEOUS) to the beautiful music and the wonderfully tender storyline.

And the seriously goofball dog.

It felt like stepping into another world and there was a part of me that ached to leave it.

Definitely a recommended watch, and one that I’m glad I caught in theaters. The sheer awe-inspiring scale of the City of the Dead would be lost on my tiny screen.

P.S. I want a flying catbirdĀ alebrije.


  • We enjoyed it too. What we didn’t enjoy was taking two small kids to a decently long movie (not that it felt that way) that had a 20-30 minute Frozen “short” beforehand (which did feel long). The two-year-old was kinda done about 20-30 minutes before the movie ended (which, I mean, this *was* her first movie in a theater and she *is* two, so, that wasn’t *that* unexpected, but _still_).

    • That’s why they removed the “short” — by the time I saw it on Monday, it had already been nixed. You were definitely not the only family hugely disappointed by it (and apparently it was lukewarm at best anyway).
