Movie Review: Coco (2017)

 

 

Went on open day to see Coco with my son. 

 

My boy is 6. He made it through the special feature of Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, it was very cute, and then as soon as the movie started he was like I want to leave. This movie is too scary. I don’t want to watch. I really don’t understand young kids. Some movies he’s all into and others he finds a reason to say that they are to scary. 

 

Coco was not scary, well maybe the skeleton’s in the land of the dead could be scary, but they are not featured right off. We start by learning the story of Miguel’s family and his dreams of becoming a musician like his idol. He finds himself in the land of the dead and meeting up with his relatives, who then go on an adventure. Along the way he and his family learn the true story of his families history and how important family is. 

 

I loved how Mexico was represented, The culture, the music, and the colors. I loved the musical numbers, the animation was wonderful, and I loved how the story all played out. The colors are so vibrant and the characters where marvelous. The characters and story had me crying at least 3 different times during the movie. 

 

Coco is a sensational Pixar production. For my son, he wasn’t into the movie, but for me I adored Coco and want to watch it again. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was born and raised in Northern Indiana. I’m an outdoor sun loving reader living near San Fransisco. I’m a mother, wife, dog owner, animal, and book lover. I’m the owner, reviewer, and mind behind Angel’s Guilty Pleasures. My favorite animals are horses & dogs. As for reading I love all things paranormal & urban fantasy. My favorite shifters are dragons!

review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-11-07 03:25
Review: It
It: A Novel - Stephen King

So it only took me forever, but not because the book was bad (obviously).  I'm just a slacker.

 

I don't know what to say about it other than it is another gem from the master, Stephen King.  It was well written and had the right amount of creepiness, horror and humor.

 

There are some triggering scenes with animal abuse that were discomforting to me.

 

And am I the only one who felt bad for It in the end?  I think it was the mom in me feeling a little softhearted as It begged for it's life and for the life of it's progeny.  But, of course, I know It couldn't be left to survive, nor could it's young.  But for a brief moment, I felt It's pain; the need to save itself and it's children.

 

All in all, it was quite the roller-coaster ride.

Amazon credit
All Systems Red - Martha Wells
Wonder Woman: The Official Movie Novelization - Nancy Holder
Gotham: Dawn of Darkness - Jason Starr
Alien: Out of the Shadows - Tim Lebbon
MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #18 Cover A Release Date 8/23/17 - Sonic Boom Studios Fach / Khromov GbR Alex Khromov,Sonic Boom Studios Fach / Khromov GbR Alex Khromov

All Systems Red and Gotham: Dawn of Darkness were full price, but the Wonder Woman novelization was one dollar, the Alien book was two - and has some Ash, and I love this author - and Power Rangers 18 was two dollars, as BOOM! comics are half off after they're out in the world for a month. 

 

For $16 and change, that was a good haul.

Blog Interview with Hollywood Specialist Bodyguard Kris Herzog

 Bodyguard Kris Herzog with Jessica Alba

 

The sick things people sent to movie stars in the mail, in addition to assassination attempts. Scary.

 

The interview coincides with my novel, Gun Kiss, which features a specialist protection agency guarding a movie star.

 

These guys do more than the average bodyguard. The stuff these guys do is close to how I had described in Gun Kiss. Kris had also protected some of the U.S. presidents, children of Saudi royalty, foreign dignitaries and top businessmen.

 

To join The Bodyguard Group of Beverly Hills, you must be a specialist police officer, ex-Navy Seal or other elite units.
