Infused from start to finish with horrible singing & noticeably-novice dancing this was just painful. Throw in the off-kilter type-warp script and well, this 1 star rating is mighty generous.... and it's for the great piano playing. Real Double-threat kudos to Ryan for that.

Dancing - Simple and made to look OK

The sad thing is that there are soooooo many talented musical theater actors and directors begging for a chance who might have salved this mess. But Hollywood relies on stars and stars have unearned egos. I am reminded of this every time Meryl Streep bursts into song. Wow!
Has Hollywood and America forgotten what their unique contribution to theater looks and sounds like? Why you have to hire singers and dancers who can act rather than actors who try to sing or dance? If it was easy everybody could do it - and this film proves definitively everybody can't do it.
I was prepared for new concept but performance quality still counts doesn't it? What a waste of superb on screen talent. So sad. They flubbed up Into The Woods and totally destroyed Jersey Boys.
Thank God for Disney.
It pays homage to musicals of the golden age of Hollywood, but it's not anachronistic. The story regards a relationship, but it's not fundamentally about love.
It's a movie about the fulfillment of human goals.
If there's something you've always wanted out of life, La La Land may just be the reminder you need to stop waiting and go get it.
The story regards two people struggling to achieve their goals, and how they help each other to do that.
The story is beautifully told, with long, fluid tracking shots of dancing and singing. It's a visual and musical love letter to classic Hollywood.
If you want a full-on light and airy Hollywood musical, this ain't it.
If you want escapism, this ain't it.
If you want pure optimism or pure cynicism, this ain't it.
If you want an important story, beautifully told with song, dance, and amazing orchestrations, this is it.
The cinematography is beautiful, the choreography is stunning, and the camerawork is breathtaking. And that's what La La Land is; breathtaking. No, it's not perfect, as the film does peak towards the middle and the second half re-uses music and ideas from the first half, and personally I found there to be a couple of questionable casting choices, but those are minor nitpicks in what is otherwise a miracle production. I am very thankful that, in a world where superhero films and action blockbusters rake in the most dough, there are still producers out there willing to fund risky projects that can either fall and be forgotten, or rise and become instant classics. La La Land is fire. See it.
