Best Film of 2018: Coco

Best & Worst Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Coco is Pixar back firing on all cylinders – It’s funny, charming and endearing without being preachy or over the top.  In fact I’d say that Coco happily sits towards the top end of Pixar’s considerable cannon.  Visually stunning and with top draw voice acting, it’s day of the dead theme (whilst treading similar ground to  also very good The Book of Life) provides a rich tapestry for the animators to work with.  For my money this should be sitting amongst the crowd of best Motion Picture nominees at this years academy awards.

Best Bit: So THAT”S why it’s called Coco

Cinema, Stream, Avoid: Cinema

If You Liked this Try: The Book Of Life, Inside Out, Ferdinand, Up

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
From the makers of Ice Age comes a kids comedy about sending bulls to the slaughter house and murdering them in bull fights in Spain.  Yup kids films have changed.  Ferdinand, despite it’s somewhat morbid story overtones, is mostly fun even if it does feel a bit long by the end.  Its well acted (surprisingly considering Wrestler John Cena voices the titular character) and well animated and the kids with me loved it.  So maybe not for younger kids but there’s enough to enjoy here…

Best Bit: Bull. China Shop.
