La La Land
the lack of chemistry between the two really took away from it for me
You mean Gosling and Stone? I thought they had great chemistry. It's amazing how multiple people can see the same movie, and have such wide-ranging differences in what they see. I've heard them compared to the Golden Age greats.
I'm always conscious others may/will see it differently. So yeah, my take on it.
I thought they had great promise initially -- him being stroppy, her quirky. Maybe it just wasn't given enough time. I did enjoy the ending, thought that worked very well. It was in the main body of the film I thought the chemistry was lacking. I'm not big on the musical approach, so maybe that left me looking for too much elsewhere.
Some great melodies, songs, music though
