Vehicle Review: 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE

Take a look at the affordable 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE. Now don't let its small size fool you. The SE model is packed with features! Let's take a look at them as I spend a week driving around Southern California! This would be a perfect car for your kids in college or for a commuter car.

You can see the 15-inch aluminum wheels, the halogen headlights and fog lights all standard on the SE model.

Time to hop into the drivers seat and see what adventures are in store! The cloth bucket seat is comfortable and is adjustable six ways and four on the passengers side. The front seats are also heated!

The driver's cabin is comfortable for a sub-compact vehicle. Everything is easily within reach. There is automatic climate control, proximity-sensing remote locks, push button ignition, cruise control and steering wheel mounted audio controls.

Wait this isn't Disneyland! That's right, we are at Knott's Berry Farm! We are here early so not only do we get great parking but it is time for breakfast at Mr.s Knott's!

Pixar's Coco - Non-Spoiler Review of my Favorite Pixar Film to Date!

Let's start off by telling you that Coco is a triumph from a studio known for knocking it out the park. It is easily my favorite Pixar film ever and it will quickly become yours as well.

Coco is deeply rooted in the Mexican culture and features an almost entirely Hispanic voice cast. This is one of the most emotional Pixar films since those first memorable moments from UP. I am a sappy movie watcher and have no problem telling you that I cried ugly tears during Coco, as did my friend Sara. We both recommend that you do yourself a favor and bring some tissues with you.

This will be a non-spoiler review and I hope that no one will spoil this wonderful film for you. From the trailers we know that this film follows young Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez), the youngest member of a family that has banned music from their lives. The explanation is given in the simple and charming opening sequence. But Miguel has dreams of being a musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), and after a fateful decision he ends up in the Land of the Dead. But with the help of his deceased relatives, a dog named Dante and a new friend Hector (Gael Garcia Bernal), Miguel tries to get back to the Land of the Living.

The film will not only just tug on your heartstrings but it is a fun adventure filled with the gorgeous animation. The clothing, the colors, the food and the celebration of the extended family shines here. Even though the film is centered on the Mexican culture, we are all reminded that even though we are all different people from different places and backgrounds, the love of family is universal.

Solid storytelling and vivid animation give us another animated classic from Pixar. It is art come to life, music that will stay with you long after the end credits are over and just a gem to behold.
