After consulting with my doctors and doing extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that this movie might physically kill me. I don't know if I'll be able to handle it. Watching this trailer makes me want to explode with joy. The last half of it is pretty much everything I love about movies shoved into one tiny colorful ball of happiness, and I just can't wait to see more. I'll be honest, the moment that La La Land started drawing comparisons to Singin' in the Rain was the moment that I knew this would be a movie for me. I love classic Hollywood, and I love the idea of a grand musical on a modern stage. I'm also a huge fan of romance films when they're done right, and judging by the buzz and this trailer, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone's love story in this film will be one for the ages. Not to mention the fact that this film is coming from the guy who wrote one of the best movies of the year (10 Cloverfield Lane) and directed one of the best of the 21st century (Whiplash), a filmmaker named Damien Chazelle who is simply taking this town by storm. It looks marvelous, it's probably gonna win all the Oscars come February, and I just can't wait to see it. Honestly, if this post is incoherent at times, it's just because I'm struggling to put into words how psyched I am to see this thing. I'm ready for this movie. Bring on the tears and the good, old-fashioned Technicolor Hollywood euphoria.
La La Land will be released in select cities on December 9 before a nationwide release on December 16.
