    The fact that kids love their grandparents might have taken Pixar by surprise at the time of Up!, but it sure seems like they figured it out now. Coco's most touching moments come from Miguel's and his great-grandma's, the titular Coco's interactions, even though we spend most of the time with his close relatives.

    At the heart of the story is Miguel, who, as a Marty McFly-type protagonist, goes through barely any character development, but serves as a catalyst for…

    This is the first-ever comic book movie that showcases not one but two award-worthy performances (Road to Perdition might be the only exception here). I'm not exaggerating. We've been watching Sir Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman in…
