La La Land

9 posts in this topic

Saw this tonight and enjoyed - surprised no one else has discussed it 

 

being a musical and jazz was going to be a struggle as i cant stand musicals and struggle with jazz. 

 

Opening scene on the freeway - i was thinking omfg what have i done, but it got better - the first third is a bit slow , but once the musicals eases and the acting starts it movies along nicely. 

 

RG and ES have obvious chemistry and go well together. 

 

Music is varied and ive got a certain tune stuck in my head. 

 

Not sure howit sits with jazz fans tho? 

 

3.80 stars

cafe we watched it at the flicks the other night and really enjoyed it ! 

 

the maker definitely takes inspiration from,

 

as with the charm of the old ginger rogers fred astaire movies,

 

I know what you mean wiht the opening hehe

 

but I felt as a movie its amazing how uplifting and just kept spiralling up and up and up. also not really the predictable sort of movie.

 

great stuff loved it.

 

what I also found amazing is the music was all original ... even though many tubes etc heard really felt like something I knew.

 

a very smartly done movie...

 

though we do love musicals can understand if really not everyones cup of tea !

Great movie and worthy of all the acclaim. I understand musical is not everyone's cup of tea, but in a forum of audiophiles and music lovers I had expected more enthusiasm for this movie. In particular Jazz is a core component of this movie, and that should at least be of interest to jazz lovers.

Just watching La La Land and it seems that the mix is in stereo and not surround. Even the center channel is silent.

I'm streaming it via Apple TV. I don't feel like any of the dialogue is missing. It's just a very obvious left and right mix.

Anyone else had a similar experience?

It didn't seem that way to me. But then I was too enthralled to take much notice. Masterpiece...
