    It’s goodΒ - Shallow is definitely the highlight as well as the ending. The two leads are fantastic, but this is way overhyped, sorry. I liked it but it just felt like a lesser version of La La Land. The first act was amazing, but it started to lose me in the second half. It turned into a bit of a mess. My most anticipated movie of the year, damn... I'm so sad right now. I wanted to love this. I’ll probably see it again, I feel like I maybe missed something here.
