Definitely a must see and a clear contender for the Best Picture Oscar. Made me fall in love with my city of LA all over again.

Best Movie of 2016. Everything from the acting, directing, songs, score, dialogue, cinematography, production/costume design, and sound is just top notch. Even if your not a fan of musicals or slow pacing, this is still an absolute must see!!! 10/10!!!

At first I had no idea which decade they were in. They used iPhones, but looked like they were in the 60s. The singing was mediocre. The dancing was not great. The only high part of the movie was John Legend singing. The pianist was good though....but this movie was a waste of my time and I'll never get back those 2 hours of my life. La La Land put me in just that....la la land 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Three-quarters into it I wanted to take a nap. But overall it was good due to its originality. The opening sequence is the best part of the entire film and worth all the praise - but the rest is just okay.

It's a musical more in spirit than in song numbers and I loved that about this film. Great story and cast, and well worth your time.

#disappointing

The sound was not so good for the vocals. The ending didn't fit the mood of the movie. Very disappointing.

It's rare that a movie can make me feel this good. A welcomed brightness - aesthetically as well as tonally - during a time where dark films are being pushed in our faces. Love, hopes, dreams: we can't live without them. They make life worth living. And sometimes we need to be reminded of that, amidst the chaos. That is the power that movies have, to remind us of what makes life beautiful. La La Land does that and much more. I am in love with this movie . . .

A cute movie that is fun and ends with a path you didn't think would happen. However it is long and can be slow at times. Overall a cute movie.

had great moments but to be considered a movie musical I didn't feel it had enough solos or duets that were clear in telling the story musically. sure there was a lot of jazz music but that doesn't make it a musical.

This movie can mainly be appreciated by artist people who have a sixth sense for visuals, camera work, the evolution of jazz, the heartbreak of love found and lost and by dreamers I highly recommend it.

Damien Chazelle’s musical, consistently daring and occasionally sublime, does what the movies have all but forgotten how to do — sweep us up into a dream of love that’s enhanced in an urgent present by the mythic power of Hollywood’s past.

Some of it is wistful, some of it whimsical, but it's all wonderful, impossibly so.

For Chazelle to be able to pull this off the way he has is something close to remarkable. The director's feel for a classic but, for all intents and purposes, discarded genre format is instinctive and intense.
