Good news for everyone who hates this film: this is the first time I've watched it that made me go "hmmm okay parts of this movie are very very corny." Bad news for those same people: I still think the opening is so beautiful and celebratory and exuberant in a way I want more movies to be, I still think Emma Stone is so fucking fantastic and deserved the Best Actress Oscar, and Damien Chazelle deserved his Best Director Oscar! This movie rules!!!!!!!!
