Go see 'La La Land'

I mean it. Go see it. Especially if you love Old Hollywood or jazz (you don't have to love both -- you really don't have to love either, but it'll enhance the experience if you do). It's such a good movie, and the music is to die for! The dancing, too.

I could wish Emma Stone had a somewhat stronger singing voice -- everyone else sounded very professional, including Ryan Gosling, and you couldn't help but notice that she didn't -- but I understand why they cast her. That role was absolutely perfect for her. If I didn't know it had been written for someone else, I'd swear it was written for her. Also, I could use a fanfic writer to fix one thing. (I tried to do a spoiler tag but I don't think it's working properly, so I'll just be as vague as possible.)

Other than that, though, it was just great.

That's good to know! I hope it stays in theatres well into January so I can go see it with a friend. Thanks for your review! :)

Thanks for the review! I saw the trailer and didn't think it looked like my kind of thing, but now I'll try to see it.

I thought she was fine! (Especially since she wasn't playing a singer.)

Who was it written for? Do you know why it changed?

Oh, I didn't mean she was bad -- I just didn't think her voice was on the same level as the rest. Her high notes in particular seemed a little breathy. But she managed all right.

Emma Watson was supposed to star, but she left to take the lead in Beauty and the Beast.

Oh, I am SO glad for the change! Loved her as Hermione, but she's really not so great an actress.
