5 Reasons to Watch The Book of Life

Today is All Souls' Day, the Day of the Dead, the perfect day for a quickie review of the movie The Book of Life.

5 Reasons to Watch The Book of Life

  • Gorgeous Animation: Seriously, the vibrant colors and the unique, 3-D animation style, with a marionette-like character design, make this a beautiful film.
  • Music: One of the characters does a cover of Creep by Radiohead.  Enough said.
  • Humor: For a film that deals with weighty subjects such as true love, living up to parental expectations, and death, The Book of Life still managed to keep me laughing.  
  • Message: Like the folktales The Book of Life draws from, this movie has important messages for viewers, namely to follow your heart.
  • Unique:  Unlike so many films, The Book of Life dares to be different.  We have diversity of characters, an unusual animation style, and unorthodox subject matter for an animated film. 

Overall, this was a beautiful, entertaining film that was worth going to the cinema to see on the big screen.  I highly recommend for fans of The Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride.
