Today is as good a day as any other to talk about La La Land, a movie that inspires mixed feelings in me. (Also known as the film which lost Best Picture to Moonlight in the most public Oscars flub ever.)
We're now in the summer blockbuster season! I've been waiting for this since 2012, after The Avengers came out and they announced the sequel for May 1, 2015. :')
I've already told you how I feel about the winners. Now I'm watching the show and delayed-blogging it.
Whiplash is an awesome, AWESOME film. Go watch it.
Though 2014 wasn't a remarkable year for Hollywood, 2015 is looking good. Every entertainment website on the internet, whether of note or not, has already listed their most anticipated movies for the year, so I shan't add my voice to the chatter. (I agree with most of them anyway. Besides, if you read my blog often enough, you already know what film I want to watch the most this year.)
Going into Divergent, I had very little idea what to expect. While nothing beats Twilight for terrible story (that still inexplicably earned hundreds of millions of dollars and literally devil-spawned four equally successful movie sequels), Divergent had a convoluted-sounding plot that made me never want to read the books, so I was skeptical of how good the movie could be.
