La La Land

This was a really fun movie, but I’m not sure if it lived up to the hype. I don’t know if living up to the hype would be possible considering how many incredible things I heard about this movie. None of those incredible things are wrong, per say, it’s bright and bubbly, it’s charming and sweet, very colorful. It just doesn’t add up to a whole lot. It’s fun, but I’m not sure what the lasting impression was. The music was good, but not exactly memorable. The ending was muddled. It kinda seemed more preoccupied with being a charming movie and showing us a good time than actually saying anything. Which isn’t bad, necessarily, but also, I expect something more substantial from a film in best of the year talks. This was a blast, you should go see it if you like musicals or Hollywood charm, but I don’t think it’s life changing or anything.
