I was disappointed by La La Land.
I know, gasp. Yes, I am going against the critical acclaim of the Academy Awards (not that I actually care) and the opinion of some dear friends (sorry, Katie), but I will say it again.
La La Land disappointed me.
I was extremely excited after seeing the trailers and hearing the buzz. A musical molded in classic Hollywood style? Dancing, singing, and romance? I was so ready for it.
Then I saw it. And it was beautiful. And fun. And then utterly terrible. And I left the theater feeling completely empty.
Caution: Spoilers ahead.
