The Writers’ View:

The opening sequence will really take your breath away and still never get it. Until the end – your head will be left spinning. It is a wonderful movie with soul, charm, style, wit, and love. It is really outrageous! Fantastic and bold and Ryan Gosling is a melancholy genius while Emma Stone is the real muse. The movie defies genre and a real masterpiece. After watching the movie, you will still feel like singing the lasting refrain which plays your soul. It is the music of firmament, dreaming and still flying…

James arrested Troy and swings a necklace about him that is a flash drive.


The Writer’s View:

The movie was not a good comedy film, there was around 3-4 small chuckles throughout some of the viewers. The film was more of an action movie than a comedy film, and there was really nothing new or groundbreaking story wise in this movie, but still, there were still something to keep someone interested.  There were also some taken scenes from the loads of the other identical films and appears to have just pasted or just copy them. By the way, someone will look at it, it appears too familiar and not in a very good way.
