There is no sugar-coating this, La La Land is not the movie of the year. The dance moves are good, the songs are kinda meh, and we can’t give statues away because we love the lead stars. Ryan Gosling is amazing thanks to his negative and sarcastic tone, which was the exact opposite to Emma Stone’s bubbly personality. She may have been the perfect choice because of her acting abilities, but I wasn’t a fan of her singing. The best part of this film is the realistic ending, which goes against the grain from what we have all come to expect.
