We watched La La Land last night. I liked it. I would've liked it better without the singing I think. But it was better than expected. Probably bc I like those two actors. I don't think it's the best movie of the year compared to the others. And I don't think either should win for acting compared to so many other great performances from this year.
Then we watched Arrival which didn't do anything for me at all. I'm very surprised it's up for Best Picture. I think Captain Fantastic and 20th Century Women were both way better than Arrival and neither was nominated for best picture.
I've been on a quest to see all the movies up for Best Picture. Only one I haven't seen yet is Lion. I'm amazed though at how many really great movies there were this past year.
