La La Land | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Christy Lemire What the Flick?! It is joyful. It leaps off the screen. Oct 10, 2018 Full Review La La Land | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Kambole Campbell One Room With A View A gorgeously photographed, unashamedly nostalgic, bittersweet marriage of the modern and the traditional, proving Chazelle's fantastic eye for musical sequences. Rated: 5/5 Aug 25, 2018 Full Review La La Land | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Kristen Lopez Culturess With its candy-coated color palette and Emma Stone's earth-shattering performance, there's plenty of love found within La La Land. Nov 20, 2017 Full Review La La Land | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Brendan Cassidy InSession Film Chazelle takes advantage of that vulnerability for the film’s surprising second half, and that’s when La La Land gets real. Jun 18, 2024 Full Review La La Land | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Angelos Koutsourakis PopMatters The melancholy in this film's musical sequences serves as commentary on cinema's bygone capacity to produce a unique kind of magic. Feb 21, 2024 Full Review La La Land | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Tina Kakadelis Beyond the Cinerama Dome This film is a celebration of “the fools who dream.” The world would be a much darker place without those fools.

Gary One thing about this movie is telling us is to Follow our Dreams 💫✊🏿🎞🎬❤ Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/20/23 Full Review G An American Classic Love Story Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/31/21 Full Review Katie D Definitely not what I was expecting! I love Emma and Ryan together but the storylines were a bit drawn out and disappointingly difficult to follow. Some of the musical numbers/dream sequences felt out of place and over the top, sending the audience out of La La Land. I did really like the jazz coming into a new generation and John Legend's music! This movie was really good but not not great. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/15/21 Full Review Alex A La La Land is a phenomenal film that teases the hopeless romantic. The film provides insight into the lives of two young adults finding their way throughout life. From their contrasting hobbies turned livelihood, the audience is left wanting a perfect ending but La La Land breaks our heart giving us the harsh reality of a situationship. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/05/24 Full Review Maddie D If you dont like this movie i dont like you. However ending was sad i cried Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/06/24 Full Review Lawand N really good, but "closer" is better Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/02/24 Full Review Read all reviews
