    Breathtaking and tearjerking

    |
    Posted .

    Although I loved coco IMMENSELY (both movies being similar) these movies are amazingly beautiful in their own right. Meaning one made me cry and the other made me drown in my own tears. I knew I had to see this before coco was released. I am very proud of filmmakers today trying to redeem themselves and try to make movies that are just as good as ones we remember from when we were kids. And even more culturally diverse. 10/10 especially for the apology song Loved every second

    cute, laughable, excellent 3D presentation

    I had free passes to this film, knew nothing about it and was pleasantly surprised when I left the cinema. If you have a chance, I would like you to spend 2 hrs watching it. I left the theatre and immediately pre-ordered this @ Best Buy. Also, if you have one, watch this presentation on a 3D TV.

    This was a perfect set. We put the dvd in our collection for our camper and the digital copy went on the Movies Anywhere app and is now on all our smart devices! Wasn’t sure we’d like this movie back when we first watched it (being all the characters are literally wooden puppets) but it’s very well done and a great story.

    It made my granddaughter happy! I found the best price here and the order process was easy. The first one was lost in the mail, I called customer service and they sent a replacement. I would purchase again. Looking forward to my next purchase.

    Breath-takingly Gorgeous with a Dash of Mexican Fl

    |
    Posted .

    We can all appreciate the brilliant and gorgeous animated films of Disney, Pixar, or Dreamworks, but let's be honest that they all kind of look and feel the same. They're either selling toys or retelling old fairy tales, and while that doesn't diminish how good they are the animated field has been in desperate need of a kick in the pants for a long time. Actually, what it needed was a dash of spice, or in the case of the visually breath-taking The Book of Life, a dash of Mexican flavor. Directed with obvious passion by Jorge Gutierrez, The Book of Life is a smorgasbord for the eyes, bursting with colors and energy like an overstuffed piñata. It's good to see a film that doesn't try to diminish its Latin heritage, but embraces it in a universal story of love and friendship based on the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos, the "Day of the Dead". The story begins simply enough, both narratively and visually, with a museum tour guide (Christina Applegate) introducing a group of kids to a very special exhibit. The story she tells involves powerful gods, best friends, magical realms, and lots of music. It follows the friendship of the passionate Manolo (Diego Luna), the spirited Maria (Zoe Saldana), and heroic Joaquin (Channing Tatum), all of whom are burdened by their families' expectations. Manolo has the heart of a musician but comes from a long line of brave bullfighters, while Joaquin was born to protect the town from a scourge of bandits. Once this part of the story gets into gear, the animation switches to something unlike anything we've seen before, with decorative wooden models reflecting the characters' personalities, and worlds that are never less than festive. The boys may be pals but they both desire Maria's love, and that's when two scheming gods see fit to make a gamble on the outcome. The villainous Xibalba (voiced by Ron Perlman, confidante of producer Guillermo Del Toro) bets on the brave Joaquin, while his wife La Muerte (Kate de Castillo) chooses Manolo, with control over the "Land of the Remembered" the prize. Fearing he may lose the wager, Xibalba gives Joaquin a special medal imbuing him with courage and invulnerability, which he uses to become a greater hero than his legendary father. Manolo becomes a bullfighter who refuses to kill the animals he faces, bringing shame to the family. When a grown up Maria returns to town, they begin competing for her heart once again, and the gods can't help themselves from meddling. A fun selection Latin-flavored renditions of Mumford & Sons, Radiohead, and Biz Markie hits give the film a distinct sound, and is a smart way to embrace multiple cultures maximum appeal. You can sense Del Toro's influence in every frame, especially when Manolo is forced to descend into the "Land of the Remembered" and the "Land of the Forgotten"; one a carnivale of colors the other a gloomy wasteland. But the real find here is Gutierrez in his feature debut, and in The Book of Life he's created an animated film with so much passion and soul it deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as The Lego Movie, and at least for me it's even better. You can feel the love for his Mexican heritage in every character, from the luchadore-masked priests to the goofy mariachi bands. There's so much to take in that it's impossible to catch it all at once. Fortunately for us, The Book of Life is destined to go the way of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas as an annual holiday classic.

    The 'Dead' have never been more ALIVE

    |
    Posted .

    Masterfully utilizing the full-palette of exuberant imagination (espousing the fine-Art of Joy in particular!). This Mexican-flavored animated dream-scape (also captured in sharply-vibrant 3-D) is unexpectedly entertaining & multi-layered (in terms of Story). It was written & envisioned by Mexican animator Jorge Gutiérrez, but most of the actual computer-animation work for "The Book of Life" was done by 'Reel FX Creative Studios' (located in Dallas, Texas). But the main reason I wanted to see this film, was because it had been mentioned that super-creative-auteur Guillermo del Toro (of "Pan's Labyrinth" "The Devil's Backbone" and "Pacific Rim" fame), hand-selected this special animation project to co-produce! I surmised by this, that Gutiérrez's "Book of Life" might therefore share at least some of del Toro's Hyper-imaginative vision (with an intrinsically meaningful modern-day morality-play in the mix, for good measure) ==> and was not disappointed, in the least! It's hard to say too much about this story, without giving away too much (since it has more than a few twists along the way). But suffice to say that it covers all of the following, and more: a) the power of friendship, camaraderie, and even true love, that can last a Life-time, and beyond! b) the unpayable debt, and infinite gratitude we owe to our endlessly long-line of ancestors/antecedents (but for whose grace, none of us would even be here!) c) the gifts of joyful exuberance brought to our American shores by Latin-Mexican culture ==> who else could turn the potentially somber 'Day of the Dead' into a colorful fun-fest befitting the best Mardi-Gras! (seriously, there were moments in this film where I couldn't help but think that the 'Dead' characters appeared to be having a lot more fun than the 'Living' and were also a lot more charismatic/photogenic?! Anyway, highly recommended ==> setting a very different (upbeat/uplifting) mood for Halloween!! (these 'Dead' could really cheer our downtrodden-World up, more than a bit!) note: of course I also very much appreciated the many Musical references masterfully applied throughout this Film (and the proverbial power of 'Guitar vanquishing Sword' during one of the key segments!)
