LTTP: Coco may be the first Pixar film I really did get teary-eyed over (marked spoilers). EDIT: Also watched Finding Dory and Cars 3By GuyWhoPredictsThings
Perhaps it's due to how easy it is to relate to the Day of the Dead holiday, but while there are MANY emotional moments in many Pixar films, and this isn't the first one to make me feel emotional, the use of the song Remember Me was executed so wonderfully in this film that during a few moments, I really did feel just about ready to let it out. I didn't, as it takes a lot to get me to cry (not trying to be badass, either; I just don't cry easily), but the climax felt earned, which is why I came really damn close to actually crying.
The best way to put it is this film evolved in a way I didn't expect it to evolve. I just about thought the movie's set-up put it into an obvious conclusion, and
The movie is beautiful. I especially noticed it during the first Remember Me musical number, watching the colors shine off the dancers' dresses, but death has never looked so vivid and colorful. It's kind of like Ratatouille in the sense that I didn't expect such a beautiful color palette to be used in a movie with rats, just as you almost wouldn't expect a beautiful color palette to color the Land of the Dead.
In regards to the resolution of the movie,
I have to watch it a second time and give it time to simmer, but I really enjoyed it. Lee Unkrich was the director, and he also directed Toy Story 3. That alone made me excited for this movie, but he now is there with Pete Docter, Brad Bird and Andrew Stanton for me having directed two pretty damn good Pixar films.
Also, props to this joke:
"Whatever he is, I am allergic."
"He doesn't have any hair."
"And I don't have a nose. Yet, here we are."
