    John Wick: Chapter 2

    ★★★★★

Together these two movies have made me far more invested in musicals than I was previously, with Bugsy Malone being another highlight but beyond that the list starts to get a bit thinner.

    Here La La Land follows on two people with big dreams. Mia (Emma Stone) is…
