La La Land :- Watch La La Land on Youtube on Fire,In real life, most people don’t randomly break out in song and dance, but the escapism of the big screen has been bringing Movie Fans musical feature films since the very first days of the sound motion picture. Only the second film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture was a musical (1929’s “The Broadway Melody”). Oversaturation in the marketplace and changing audience tastes led to the production of fewer musicals, but they never went away. Some of the best-loved musicals in film history (e.g. “Meet Me in St. Louis” and “Singin’ in the Rain”) came out in the 10-year span 1944-1953. But the ensuing decades each produced very popular musicals: “West Side Story”, “The Sound of Music” and “Oliver!” (all Best Picture Oscar winners from the 1960s), “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”, “Grease” and “All That Jazz” (1970s), “Victor/Victoria”, “Little Shop of Horrors” and “The Little Mermaid” (1980s), “Beauty and the Beast”, “The Lion King” and “Evita” (1990s) and, in the early 2000s, “Moulin Rouge!”, “Frozen”, “Dreamgirls” and “Chicago”, which became the first musical in 34 years to win Best Picture.2016’s “La La Land” (PG-13, 2:08) is the purest original (non-adapted) live action musical in many years, and has both the pedigree and the quality to duplicate the accomplishment of 2002’s “Chicago”. “La La Land” was written and directed by Damien Chazelle, who was the writer-director of 2014’s “Whiplash”, which earned him Oscar nods for his script and his film. This one is filled with original songs which are composed and orchestrated by Chazelle’s previous collaborator, Justin Hurwitz, with lyrics by the award-winning musical theater team known as Pasek and Paul. Musician John Legend has a major role in the film and its stars, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, are both past Oscar nominees who earlier appeared together in two other movies – 2011’s “Crazy, Stupid, Love” and 2013’s “Gangster Squad”. And, yes, they both sing and dance while telling this particular musical’s story of romance, dreams and hope. It takes place in the present but feels like a throwback – like the most entertaining musicals of yesteryear.
