Prepare yourself for the most unpopular opinion in recent memory - I think La La Land was just okay. Still with me? Okay good, now let me explain why. It did not do anything new. It did not do anything special. It had a Ryan Gosling dancing and pretty scenery and a few songs that stuck in your head like glue. It wasn’t life-affirming or changing and it wasn’t magical to me at all. What’s magic? Moonlight.
