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.

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 :(

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
