The Book Of Life

That said, the basics of this fantastical fable, whose ingenious puppet-like character designs draw upon the familiar wooden folk-art figures associated with the annual celebration of The Day of the Dead, are somewhat overly familiar despite all the rich cultural references that spice up the proceedings. There is the ever-popular love triangle in the form of three childhood amigos. Our main hero, the tender-hearted Manola Diego Luna , whose boyish vocals are a constant source of plaintive pleasure , comes from a long line of legendary bullfighters and is skilled in the ring himself. But his true calling is that of a guitar-strumming troubadour. The boastful Joaquin Channing Tatum , who taps into his abundant reserve of amusing swagger is a man of action, a mucho-macho mustachioed bandit-rustler with a broad chest crammed with medals.

In this colorful animation, a contest for the hand of the lovely Maria voice of Zoe Saldana goes awry when those in the world of the dead interfere with her two suitors, Joaquin and Manolo voices of Channing Tatum and Diego Luna. Run Time: 97 minutes. Manolo voice of Diego Luna is a young man torn between a desire to please his father and a burning need to chart his own course. He is a Sanchez, and in his small Mexican town the family is known for their bull fighting skills. Manolo is no slouch in the bullring, as he dances and maneuvers deftly around the animal.

In Theaters. Coming Soon. Best of Netflix.

Through reviews, articles and discussions, we want to spark intellectual thought, spiritual growth and a desire to follow the command of Colossians "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. Just today I was reading Psalm 37 and thinking about how your ministry provides ways to 'dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Plugged In has become a significant compass for our family. All three of our kids are dedicated to their walk with Christ but they still encounter challenges. Thanks for all of your research and persistence in helping us navigate through stormy waters. It is her favorite movie and she wanted to show it in class.
