  • La La Land

    La La Land

    ★★★★½

    I can't claim to completely understand Damien Chazelle's obsession with jazz music, but it does make for some awesome movies.

    La La Land is easily the most endearing and masterful movie I've seen all year. The writing was great. The editing was great. The direction was OUTSTANDING.

    Well, it had a few moments that stuck with me. I really liked the first fight scene between Batman and Bane. It was very well-choreographed, and did great job of assuring you that Bane is quite literally "unstoppable". I liked the scene where Talia was revealing Bane's true background. I almost felt like I could have cried myself. I also liked the wide shots of Gotham with smoke pluming from…
