Coco is the first original Pixar movie in two years, and it’s the only original Pixar movie for the next two years as well, so no pressure, right?
The Cinemaholics unite this week with WGTC’s very own Matt Donato to review the film, along with some other big releases coming up like The Disaster Artist starring James Franco, Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water starring Sally Hawkins, Darkest Hour starring Gary Oldman, Louis C.K.’s canceled release I Love You Daddy, and Star Wars Battlefront II.
Jon, Will, and Matt kick off the episode with some discussion about John Lasseter’s leave of absence from Disney and Pixar amidst sexual misconduct allegations, noting how this has affected Toy Story 4 and what might come next. They then get into their full review of Coco (spoiler warning provided ahead of time), before the gang goes through their weekly mini reviews and recommendations before cluing you into what’s coming out next week.
