Lo más gracioso es que cada vez encuentro más la cinta mucho más corta de lo que originalmente es. Pero es una decente cinta animada que técnicamente es muy impecable y argumentalmente es lineal pero disfrutable. Pero el final deja que desear.

A good movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. To be honest, it is rather unfair to judge this movie after watching 'Coco', another great Pixar production, when this movie was actually released 3 years before.

“Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. To be honest, it is rather unfair to judge this movie after watching 'Coco', another great Pixar production, when this movie was actually released 3 years before. Well, even though I really preferred 'Coco', I still really enjoyed this other animated feature dealing with 'Dia de Muertos'.  First of all, Jorge R. Gutiérrez came up with a really original animation style and the whole thing looked very nice. As I was watching  this flick, I was wondering if it was based on an actual Mexican tale but it was in fact an original idea filled with some Mexican traditions. Fortunately, it worked very well and it was quite entertaining. Eventually, the only thing that slightly bothered me was the rat” read more

My Top 10 Favourite Movies of 2014 (10 movies items)

"Another big surprise. Right from the opening scenes, it was so emotionally poignant that I was won over instantly. The story is as basic a fairytale as you can get, which just makes it all the more engaging: sometimes simplicity goes a long way. But aside from that, I simply adore the art design and the animation; I can't think of any other movie that looks like this. I said before that I hardly rated any movies five stars this year, but this is one that I strongly suspect will earn that coveted"

"Re-watch - March 15th I've been wanting to revisit this since I first saw a trailer for Coco last year, but the kiddo was never in the mood for it so I decided to just watch it on my own. I still give it credit for being the first animated film I saw to tackle Dia de los Muertos, but compared to Coco it's not as great as I'd originally thought. I still really enjoy the film overall, but this time around the lack of original songs in favor of more recognizable hits struck me as lazy. Even worse "
