    I hear the movie is going to focus more on Helen being a superhero like how the first film mainly focused on Bob, whereas the latter is going to mainly stay at home with the kids like Helen did in the first installment.

    I think they've said in the past that random powers can appear and disappear during infancy with a more permanent set coming in as they get older.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    If that's true, it makes all of this even more needlessly complicated lol.

    Based on just the movie itself, I thought Jack-Jack's power was just to shape-shift and/or change his molecular structure. But then Jack-Jack Attack and now this trailer have made everything very confusing.

    My impression from the beginning was that his powers would stabilize when he got older, since they never put any special emphasis on Jack Jack's ability to do so many things. Plus it makes sense as a metaphor for the potential of a child.

    I would prefer if this world is what it is. The idea that everything has to evolve from our world or need some kind of explanation is something I disagree with.

    I don't need an explanation either. I just think that focusing on Jack Jack more could give an opportunity to drop a line or two about that. If only for humor at the least.

    Honestly, this isn't too surprising (disappointing yes, but not a shock).

    I really should rewatch the Incredibles one of these days. I've only seen it off a bootleg dvd.

    I read his letter and provided what he's saying is honest, I'm glad he's responding to this so seriously and hopefully he comes back a better man

    Coco was great! Beautiful animation and great characters. Truthfully though, I thought the music could've been stronger. Really, the only song I remember is aptly named 'Remember Me' and I vaguely remember 'Poco Poco' (sp?). Not many songs besides those. Still, the overall product was thoroughly enjoyable.

    Just a few thoughts...

    Spoiler:
    Family twist was a little too obvious and I kinda felt like they (the writers) knew that too, so didn't make it a big DUN DUN DUN moment.

    The ending with the great grandmother and great grandson singing together made me tear up.

    Murder is dark but not out of the ordinary for Disney/Pixar. Not at all. I actually thought the more depressing thing was the old man in the shantytown fading away because he was forgotten.

    An interesting thought, what happens to murderers in the afterlife? Now that everyone knows the musician was nothing but a thief and murderer what are they going to do with him? Throw him in jail until he is forgotten? Is their a giant jail full of people who murdered in their past life? Are there a bunch of murderers walking the streets in the afterlife because they were never caught while they were alive? Or will the afterlife society just shun and cast him out to the fringes of society? Kinda like what they do with the people who are being forgotten...

    Was the dog always a spirit guide who simply disguised himself as a dog, or was it a dog who turned into a spirit guide once it got into the afterlife? I'd have to go with the former obviously. That'd explain why it was able to see the ghosts, travel to the land of the dead, and guide the boy like it did.

    The musician is an idiot. He turned his murder into a movie. What an idiot.

    Coco. Great visuals but a lot of choices I did not like.
    Spoiler:

    Like I said I like the visual.

    My problem with the story is mostly a personal thing but I hated how the handled it.

    The real papa should not exist. And if he does it shouldn't be that his story. Cruz shouldn't be a murderer. And definitely I hated the whole they are a couple again.

    I think the story would have been much better with a Cruz that love his descendant but also knows that he couldn't have live without the music. And at the end we have Miguel realizing he prefers family over music but the mama decide that he should be able to forge his own path.

    Or if the alternate papa exist make him a failed musician none of that stupid murder thing or that magical he was always going to return he just died before so zero fault on his character and there was zero reason to bring him back to the mama when his story was about wanting to see his daughter.

    Music was great and aside from the kissing the last scene was pretty good and moving.

    I also really like the mama and think the movie would work better if she was the antagonist not that weird murder plot.

    I don't really think this movie even needs a villain in the same way Inside Out didn't have one. But the great great grandma being the villain could have been interesting. It's hard for me to imagine how that can work out if she doesn't have a high position of power in the world of the afterlife. Maybe she could work if she's like Mother Gothel from Tangled, but more of an assertive villain since the first third or half of the movie.

    Went to see Coco. Managed to know nothing about it in advance and had seen zero trailers and knew nothing about it except it was a Pixar film.

    And then Pixar themselves throws spoilers themselves at the start of the film. "Hey, it takes a lot of people to make one of these movies. Check out this key reveal scene from half an hour in! Wasn't that cool looking? That took a lot of work to do!"

    Thanks guys.

    Movie was all right Not great but all right. The characters were likeable and the colors were nice and it did what it was supposed to do and it was standard Pixar. It was kind of predictable and straight forward though. Not their best but not at the bottom either..

    Also, at the very very start, usually the 5 minute Pixar shorts are fun but.... I had no idea we were going to be held hostage to a 21 minute Frozen short about Olaf at the start. That was just cruel.

    Oh my God, I forgot about that short. The sheer length of it was so abysmal. It doesn't help how I'm not the biggest fan of Frozen to begin with, let alone of Olaf. I only found out about the short right before taking my seat by overhearing some other people.

    I would have much preferred something like that cute volcano romance short. That had the right amount of short but touching length.

    Apparently everyone hates the "short". (Which is actually 21 minutes and is blatantly intended to be a holiday tv special.)

    Mexico has removed the short entirely, apparently after massive complaints the first couple days.

    Went and saw Coco today.

    Spoiler:
    Yep, it's a good one. It's got gorgeous animation and even managed to make me tear-up a bit at the end, but...yeah, I also kinda feel like it's missing a certain something that keeps it from joining the greats of Toy Story, Ratatouille, Up, etc. And, yes, like most of you, I saw the twist coming a mile away (and I'm a little conflicted as to whether I liked that twist or not).

    Oh yes, and the Olaf short. Disney, if you want to keep making Frozen stuff for the fans, great, but for god's sake, can you please stop shoving it down the throats of us who didn't even come to the theater to see Frozen?

    EDIT: Ah, well I'm glad it's not just me or even a few people who think that
