Finally got around to seeing LA LA LAND this week. The film, starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone is about two Angelenos who initially meet in overpass traffic. Despite their initial aversion, the two keep bumping into each other and fall in love. LA LA LAND is a sweet, fairy tale filled with enjoyable musical numbers, but I didn't think the film was amazing. And I don't believe it should win the Best Picture Oscar.
It was well-made and beautifully shot. Of course, Ryan Gosling is easy on the eyes, but the real stars of this movie are the music and the city of Los Angeles. The songs are memorable but I was bothered by the "natural" style of singing from the leads. I had hoped for more professional voices. Still, LA LA LAND should win awards for Music. And the various scene locations encapsulate a fine tour of the City of Angels. Overall, I'd give the film a 7 out of 10.
How does everyone else think this movie is going to do at the Oscars?
