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.

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.

A whimsical take on the reality of the Hollywood life of trying to make it big. Different but cute. Definitely a fresh look on it.

Really great movie definitely surprised me and it's very different than any other movie I've ever seen. It has an old school feel to it and will entertain you from start to finish.

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.

Contrast of real LA and fake LA the one we want to exist and the one that actually exists, when worlds collide whatever is in store is unpredictable.

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.

What makes La La Land such a hot miracle is how the passion for cinema and its possibilities radiates from every frame.

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