The very large pendulum seen in the observatory scene is called a Foucault pendulum, or Foucault's pendulum, named after the French physicist Léon Foucault. It is a simple device conceived as an experiment to demonstrate the rotation of the Earth. While it had long been known that the Earth rotates, the introduction of the Foucault pendulum in 1851 was the first simple proof of the rotation in an easy-to-see experiment. Today, Foucault pendulums are popular displays in science museums and universities. See more »

I've never been more disappointed in a film than I have with La La
Land. The trailer had me completely sucked in and I couldn't wait to
see it at the cinema. However, this film is an hour too long, had
practically no story and was so boring to watch, my Mom was asleep
after 10 minutes. Not just that but all the 'singers' in the film were
far too weak, Gosling and Stone didn't have powerful enough voices to
carry off the lead parts. John Legend had the best voice by far, but
his part was so small it didn't make a difference to the film as a
whole. Not good at all, if you do go to see this, don't believe all the
hype and go in with low expectations.
8.8 on IMDb, what a joke!
