La La Land

Recommended Posts

From a friend who saw it recently with family:


I've seen La La Land, the "huge, smash hit". Almost the worst film I've actually sat through to the end. Plotless, wooden acting, and a screeching, often flat, female lead. If that's what's going to inspire movies going forward Hollywood is going to become a 2nd rate Bollywood.

Pity, it could have been Eggy's fave film, apart from Singing in the Rain that is. ;)

Mrs Sym insisted that I watched it last night (free via Kodi on the telly) ... both of us agreed at the end that we'll never get those hours back.  Simply an awful film and the leads no Fred Astair or Ginger Rogers;  yep, they had the dance steps but it was wooden - all a bit 'Dad dancing'.

I think the Oscars 'Best Picture' mix up is one of the best stories to come out of any awards ceremony - something I never watch.

Price Waterhouse Cooper must have had someone 'moonlighting' on their books to cock that up!

I'll stick to singing, and dancing, in the rain 3G.

But I could be tempted to to go Tra La La La, Lala La La , One banana, Two Bannan, Three Banana four.........................

Instead of The Oscars they could rename it The Banana Splits and keep on slipping up.

So many of the films that the press and the Luvies rave about have been really naff , I remember them raving about silent movie a couple of years ago and it winning many awards, I personally found it a total load of plop.

Forget the oscars.

Try two films :-

1) Lion

2) Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Your correct Maggie, new films dont do it for me, I would rather watch an old classic.


How about this one for to bring a tear to your eye. 

They dont make em like they used to :(

    • Bedlington darts ace Chris Dobey reached his first ever European Tour final on Sunday to all but secure his place in next month's World Matchplay.
      Dobey was beaten 8-3 by Dave Chisnall in the final of the Danish Darts Open at Copenhagen's Brondby Hallen but enjoyed a superb run over the three-day competition.
      The 29-year-old saw off Steve West, Ricky Evans, former World Championship finalist Kirk Shepherd, and Jose de Sousa before beating two-time major champion Gerwyn Price in the semi-finals to reach his first big-stage final.
      'Hollywood' ran out of steam in the final, though, and despite taking a 2-0 lead, he won just one of the next nine legs as Chisnall secured his first European Tour title since 2013.
      Dobey's run over the weekend now means he is all but assured of a World Matchplay debut next month, following on from his debut in the Premier League earlier this year.
      The World Matchplay is widely considered the second most prestigious major in the darts calendar after the World Championships and after narrowly missing out on qualification for each of the last two years Dobey is delighted he has secured a long overdue debut in the competion.
