    What Happened to Monday

    ★★½

    Time to watch a movie for the first time in way too long! Let's browse Netflix for 30 mins before settling on some random "Netflix Original" that everyone already forgot about (this wasn't my idea but apparently we couldn't watch The Nice Guys because I'd already seen it and so it wasn't fair :/ ? ).

    La La Land

    ★★★★½

    Don't mind me, just adding another glowing La La Land review to the neverending pile. This is a very grand film in every sense of the word and it stands out in the current film landscape in just how joyful and classically influenced it is.

    For a portion of the first half I was close to having an "is this it?" moment, because despite the huge musical numbers and inventive direction & cinematography, the plot was a bit run of the…
