Saw La La Land again and I was impressed that the end lost none of its emotional impact on a second viewing. I still left the theater teary eyed and wishing that final fantasy sequence was how things played out. They did such a great job creating their relationship with charm, cuteness, and the delightful old Hollywood style song and dance, you became so invested

DEADPOOL?

Does this mean it has a good chance of getting a Best Picture Oscar nomination?

A litmus test on the state of movie critics is Arrival. An emperors new clothes of a movie. That any movie critic found it " "cerebral" tells you all you need to know about the level of movie critique. I love director denis villeneuve, but the movie is a mess. Some critics confused convoluted and boring storytelling with cerebral. Just glad that Arrival is not getting any major awards comforts that not everyone in the movie industry is as dense as movie critics. The same ones that praise

Cerebral? Go watch Moonlight. That will get more brain cells moving than a silly and dull time travel octopus alien story.

Easily the best movie of the year by far. You walk out of the movie knowing you just saw an instant classic. A movie like this does come around too often.

Moonlight is equally amazing movie making, but the subject of watching a kid getting brutalized made me feel like a masochist for enduring a soul battering. If it wasn't so amazingly made in every way, I would have walked out. Moonlight is an amazingly great movie but one I will never see again.
La la Land? I have the soundtrack on my

La la Land? I have the soundtrack on my Spotify and will watch again in IMAX when it hits locally.

I liked La La Land, but I can already see that before this is over I'm going to be kind of hating it, too.
