    ★★★½

    70mm/10
    I couldn't understand a single word anyone said with their thick British accents.

    It's an interesting concept that Nolan brings to the table; the concept of war not having one singular face, but many faces. But I feel like that was done better in The Thin Red Line, a film Nolan adores. While they are very different war films those are the themes that connect them.

    The last time I saw this was in theaters in 35mm. I remember liking it but I never really had the interest of rewatching it.

    La La Land

    ★★★★★

    10/10
    If you hate happiness, music, romance, crying, laughter, or jazz, this film is not for you. If you like any of these things you'll be in agreement that La La Land is the best film of 2016. Half of my class was bawling (especially Brittany) after this film. More thoughts to come but HOT DAMN Damien Chazelle hits it out of the park again! He is unstoppable and we must all appreciate and cherish him.
