Every now and then a film comes along that makes you re-evaluate what is really important to you in life. Maybe you are like me, so busy sometimes that you forget your family and friends and take for granted the memories you make with them. If you find any of these previous statements resonating with you then we definitely recommend you see Pixar’s latest film, Coco!

Coco centers on a Mexican family, The Riveras, who for generations have been shoe makers in their community. The family has an ancestral ban on music and greatly deter, Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez), the youngest member of their family from becoming a musician.

His greatest opponent being his grandmother, Abuelita (Renee Victor). Miguel, however, believing he has an ancestral connection to a famous musician, Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), steals his guitar on Dia de Los Muertos (Day of The Dead) and is transported to the afterlife.

There, he reconnects with his ancestors who although are happy to see him realize he must be returned to the land of the living by sunrise or be trapped there forever. However, one condition upon his return is set that he may not be able to live with. It is a race against time as Miguel must find his true purpose all while reconnecting with his family and ancestors!

This film is nothing short of wonderful. Despite having a recurring theme of death, it really can serve as a way of remembering those you have lost and remembering where you came from. The world this film is set in is nothing short of beautiful and magical, all while informative. I have heard of Dia de Los Muertos growing up, but I simply dismissed it as a Mexican Halloween celebration. Boy, was I wrong! The holiday is all about family and honoring and maintaining a connection to those you have lost. There really is life after death and this film really hones in on that. Whether you are a believer or not this is a film for your whole family. In the spirit of Thanksgiving–be thankful for everyone and everything you have around you!

Plastic Man definitely is a popular hero, being a member of the Justice League and for awhile had his own cartoon series. The film will be written by Amanda Idoko, an up and coming writer in the film industry. She has worked as a staff writer on The Mayor,  a short-lived ABC series starring Brandon Michael Hall as a hip-hop artist who becomes the mayor of his city. There is no news on what Amanda’s take on the character will be but it is expected to be an action-comedic piece in line with the nature of the character and his rather silly overtones.

We have to say we are really glad Warner Bros./DC Comics is moving towards expanding the DC Cinematic Universe with new heroes. There is another Justice League movie set in the next few years and we may see an expanded line up if characters like Shazam, Batgirl, Supergirl, and Plastic Man join Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman. They will definitely need the help if they are going after Darkseid (think Marvel’s Thanos, but bigger, gray, more evil, and with eye beams that can disintegrate anything)!

This first trailer for the film is dark and bleak, as you would expect it to be from heroes are now grieving and desperate. Thanos handed them their first true defeat and now they are out for his blood. Iron Man is adrift in space and Cap is rounding up forces for revenge! We love the darker outlook, it makes us wonder just what it will take for our heroes to defeat Thanos and restore the universe to some sort of order. Hawkeye’s return and his somber expression tells us his family did not survive, and there are so many questions we have about how Ant-Man managed to get out of the Quantum Dimension? When we last saw him in the post-credits of Ant-Man and The Wasp he was left stranded there when Janet Van Dyne, Hope Van Dyne (Wasp), and Hank Pym were all wiped out in Thanos’s cosmic-level genocide.

avengers endgameAll we know is that Captain Marvel is expected to join their ranks in this film, and perhaps we will see a few more surprising heroes come to the forefront. We really wish they would have used Netflix’s Marvel heroes, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Daredevil as backup to boost the ranks…Still we are stoked for this film. It’s time for some avenging–one more time! Avengers Assemble!

You be sure to catch all the action April 26, 2018! Happy viewing!
