Last month, I was stuck on a JetBlue (where they don’t kick you off if they overbook) flight and one of the movies (for free) they were showing was La La Land (the price was right). Although, I try to avoid Oscars movies, I still opted to watch the Oscars Best Picture. Oh wait. I like Musicals, so I said why not give it a try and find out what all the hoopla was about. It was a much ado about nothing.
Thus, when I saw that Screen Junkies took it on as one of their Honest Trailers, I had to see how honest they would be with it. They were very honest. The best critique is when they said, “Proves it is easier to teach a world class singer (John Legend) how to act, then two world class actors (Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone) how to sing.” Which perfectly sums up this film that starts off with a great opening number and goes down faster than the Titanic (which really won Best Picture at the Oscars) did.
What also makes this Honest Trailer so swell, is the little side trip they take to Moonlight 3/4 of the way through! It is a perfect tribute to Hollywood’s Biggest Night’s biggest gaffe in its history.
