My Review:

Pixar is pretty tricky for me because I hate most of their movies with the exception of Brave—that reminded me more of the straight up Disney side like Tangled, etc. I just don’t get a lot of cartoon movies, and I mainly like stuff like Coraline, etc. However, I really liked The Book of Life which this trailer gave me some of those vibes.

I generally have to take my daughter to most of these cartoon movies which I usually hate, especially the corny animal ones. I can’t think of one talking animal movie I like… I am even not that big of a fan of The Lion King.

Anyway, I was already annoyed with all the skeleton’s having eyeballs. I know, I know, I love Corpse Bride and some of them have eyeballs, but they are more of a creepy eyeball. And in The Book of Life it was more of a cool flame type thing. I know Pixar was probably trying to make the skeletons more kid friendly, but it just looks dumb!

The movie itself was just okay for me. I found myself rolling my eyes a lot, but my husband and daughter seemed to love it. There was a “twist” I didn’t see coming, so at least Pixar got me there. The scenes were gorgeous and colorful, especially the amazing spirit animals. So, I was more thrilled about the vibrant setting than the story line itself. But it’s a good story for kids to remember family is important—so there’s that. What I’m more excited for is my daughter wants to see the new Star Wars!
