Am I the only one who likes La La Land but doesn't think "City of Stars" is very good?

It's okay, but "Another Day of Sun" and "Someone in the Crowd" are better.

There was one good song in La La Land and it was "I Ran" by A Flock of Seagulls.

While I like all the songs in La La Land (well, except the John Legend one), its strengths are more in the score than in the songs, as opposed to, say, Moana. Or, for those who like crappy 80's music made by uninspired teenagers, Sing Street.

To be clear, I like the music in Sing Street, because I think it's appropriate to the character making it : decent and fun but uninspired and derivative. The love for Drive It Like You Stole It is truly a mystery to me, outside of the context of the film that is.

Drive It Like You Stole It is great and the clip just makes it all the more amazing.

I hope the people voting for Huppert are right, but I do not think they are.

Is there any talk of Fantastic Beasts at this point? Or are you trusting an educated minority of people who are allowed to vote in that category?

No, he's right.

Amended my picks. Also, there's a chance I won't announce the winner until midday Monday. Still, good luck to all and get those guesses in if you haven't!
