In his first moment as a signer, Miguel takes the stage in the land of the dead, along with Hector, and delivers an awesome performance.
Miguel: [to Héctor] A minute ago I thought I was related to a murderer! You're a total upgrade!
Coco is awesome. It's such a beautiful plot and story with a remarkable life lesson, that I'm not even sure that I can completely encapsulate it in words. The film has so many great things going for it - visually, character development, diversity (hello non-white protagonist), and so much more - but it is the overall plot that makes Coco tremendous.
The lending of Mexican culture (another positive), and the bouncing between the land of the dead and living, along with a nice plot twist, ranks Coco up there with many of the great Pixar films.
I can't do this film justice in a review other than just saying - go watch it.
