La La Land (2016) ****

On Take 2 of La La Land (2016), I find my thoughts from my first viewing remaining largely the same. I went in wondering if I'd like it as much as I (somewhat surprisingly) did the first time. I still think it's a bit overhyped but once again I got swept up in the emotions, the colors, and the choreography. I also still think that the singing musical numbers are the weakest part of the film, but most everything else is gold. Great chemistry between the leads and the ending is perfect.

La La Land life lesson: don't give up on your dreams.
