Coco is a beautiful movie

by TG's Claire | Nov 27, 2017
Hey TGs, happy Monday! 

I want you to know I loved Coco. Loved it, loved it, loved it!

In Coco, music is Miguel's greatest joy - too bad his family utterly forbids it. But this hasn't stopped him from practising in secret so he can be like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. On the night of Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), Miguel accidentally finds himself in the land of the dead. To rejoin the living, Miguel must team up with a downtrodden skeleton called Hector who has more than a few secrets of his own. 

So here's what I liked about it: 

1. The music is SO much fun. Like Miguel, I love the guitar (my mum can play it, but I can't). Side note: did you know there are some ah-mazing musicians on Team TG? It's true. Laura is a singer and Aaron plays guitar. Here I am pretending I am an awesome muso.

2. The visuals are stunning. You might imagine the land of the dead might be, er, a bit dead, but in Coco, it's lively and full of colour plus crazy characters who just might remind you of your own fam. 

3. It has a cute dog, Dante. Add one to any movie and I am THERE.

4. It's deeply emotional. I think all the grown ups around me were crying (and I was no exception). It's very happy, very sad and lots of things in between all at once. So if you go see it with your fam (and I think you'd enjoy it with them, since one of the main messages is how much your family loves you and will always be there for you, no matter what), be sure to bring a box of tissues. Just in case.

Are you going to go see Coco when it's out from Boxing Day? Do you play an instrument? Let me know in the comments!

    Hey Daisy, what are your fave songs to sing? 

    Hey Alyssa, you should definitely see it. It won both Best Animated Movie and Best Original Song (for Remember Me) at the Oscars! How cool! I really do love Remember Me, it's my fave. I also think Everyone Knows Juanita is pretty hilar! Let me know when you see Coco and what you think!
