Amelie Thomas (Fatal Attraction Podcast) and Matt Brothers (Spocklight) join Flixwatcher to review Amelie’s Choice La La Land.

 

La La Land is a 2016 musical from director Damien (Whiplash) Chazelle starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone that nearly won the Best Picture at the Oscars.

Mia (Stone) is a struggling/aspiring actress in LA who has a series of chance encounters with Sebastian (Gosling) a struggling and unforgivingly rude jazz pianist. They eventually fall in love only to realize that their own ambitions and the obvious fact they are clearly not compatible and break up.

More divisive than Marmite, La La Land drew many criticisms for being a musical without any particularly memorable songs (among other criticisms) – which wouldn’t matter but by not having the songs it betrays the musical genre. To others though it’s a romantic story with fated lovers set against the LA backdrop. Watch it and decide for yourself.

 

Scores

Strong support in the scoring for La La Land from guests Amelie and Matt and Kobi but less enthusiasm from Helen brings the overall score to 3.58. A mixed reception from Twitter echos the feelings in the studio.
