John & Becky’s Movie Review of La La Land

Becky and I went to see the new movie La La Land at the Landmark theater in Englewood, CO.  The Fandango website at La La Land describes the movie as follows…

“Struggling actress Mia (Emma Stone) and aspiring jazz pianist Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) begin a whirlwind romance as they both pursue their dreams in Los Angeles. However, their blossoming relationship is challenged when their careers pull them in different directions…”

The Review:  La La Land is one of those films that when we saw the Preview for the movie we both put it on the of films to not bother seeing.  We’re not big fans of musicals and this movie looked like it wasn’t going to be very good, but we decided to go and check it out anyway.

The movie is definitely a musical, but it’s not like most musicals that are extremely annoying with people breaking into song continually.  That’s not the case with La La Land where the actors sing at times that seem to make much more sense based on the story.

The movie is a love story and it is really well done with great acting, singing and directing. The story was much better than we expected.  I’m surprised that I’m saying this, but Becky and I both really liked it and we thought it was worth the trip.

We were not a huge fan of the ending, but the movie was very good overall.
