    I first watched La La Land back in December of 2016 opening night. I knew after the opening song; it was going to be a masterpiece. And I was right. I truly believe this film to be a masterpiece and one of the best movies of all time. It's one of the most stylistically unique films I had ever seen. I fear that I will never find that feeling again in a cinemaβ€”that…

    This film is perfectly quite my tempo. Another 10/10 film in the books! (And I do not give out many 10/10s)

    I play the piano and used to take lessons. I do not take lessons anymore, but still play as a hobby. I studied piano/music for about ten years and had an excellent piano teacher. She wasn't as intense or verbally abusive as Terrance Fletcher, but she was tough enough to make me fear her at times.…

    The last time I saw this, I thought there weren't enough songs in it that distracted the feel from the movie.

Within its historical, apparently-factual context, the film presents a situation almost everyone can relate to--that of trying to find one's…

    It's easy to dismiss an animated film like this that deals with the themes that this does. I, for one, did not know this film existed. The film's quality, however, goes a long way towards making us realize that running time doesn't dictate how good something is. This film is short, but it packs a punch. One of its biggest strengths is that it doesn't try to fill up the running time or try…

    I would like to point out something about when Rapunzel sings the β€œflower gleam and glow” song.Β 
    When we first hear Mother Gothel sing it; it’s in a minor key (sounds sad). Then we hear Rapunzel sing it when she’s a child in a major key (sounds happy). She later goes on to sing it in front of Flynn to heal him, but she sings it in the minor key. For some reason it gives Gothel a more human characteristic…
