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 :(

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
