CurvyGirl didn't like it. 


On the night of the BAFTA awards we went to the nearby Everyman cinema to see La La Land.

The cinema is different in that it has uncrowded two seat couches with plenty of leg room and sensible bar food and drink can be taken in. You can argue it has a dated feel, but I'll let it off for the less clinical ambiance.

Lets start with things we can agree on. La La Land has beautiful cinematography and lighting.

I'm not so convinced about the music and plot though, or Ryan Goslings acting ability; he seems outclassed by Emma Stone in that regard.

Whilst accepting it is a light musical, it doesn't seem to have any real lows or highs

I was hovering around on Twitter on BAFTA night, and was pleased to see that a director from my city won best British film. For some reason, though, no matter how much we encouraged him, my MP couldn't see fit to congratulate Ken Loach on I, Daniel Blake.

...ask him why he didn't extend his congratulations to a winner from his constituency.

Remind him that even if he is from a different party, he is there to support and represent the views of all his constituents.

But I agree with Chris Hardwick's observation that the only possible whiter movie would be a biopic of mayonnaise.

A friend of mine described it as being like "masterbating on a Wednesday. It was really fun while it was happing and the ending was superb...but it didn't make a lasting impact on my life."

I can think of two, maybe three, musicals that I've enjoyed. I'm not going to bother with La La Land.
