    Space Mutiny

    ★½

    A perfect sort of film for Mystery Science Theater 3000, being ultra cheesy and charmingly low budget. It's also not boring and not without ambitions making it pretty fun to watch, I imagine even without some MST3K riffing over top.

    The plot here is complete nonsense as expected, but they aren't afraid to scale back the film to accommodate the shoestring budget. Not that there's anything particularly exciting on the action side of things, but it's very amusing seeing so…

    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…
