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) 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 (5) 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 ham1xqs F This Movie is my personalf favorite.People will hate it and say things but only those who have loved someone or have ad their first love will truly understand this movie and connect with it. Which is why this movie is my favorite, I really relate to it and learned from the ending that sometimes two people can forever love each other but they have their own path for the best. I hope this movie gets more recognition. The music is also absolutely beautiful and catchy. I just LOVE THIS MOVIE SO MUCH!!! Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/08/24 Full Review Daniel M The thing with Damien Chazelle is he loves to write about music and musicians, but he isn’t one, and doesn’t really know the first thing about it. It’s weird. It’s just what he imagines being a musician must be like. As someone who is a musician, I do know what it’s like, so I’m not really interested in his imaginings. Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/07/24 Full Review Webb H It's a great story and Stone and Gosling are always fantastic together, but most of the musical numbers just weren't for me. Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/04/24 Full Review Read all reviews
