I saw A Star is Born and was probably expecting too much because of all the hype I already heard about it and was somewhat let down (somewhat). I suspect the woman sitting next to me would strongly disagree as she would begin sobbing from time to time leaving me to wonder what it was that I wasn't seeing.
Even so, I have to say Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga Gaga did a good job overall and will likely win awards for their performances. The music was good but there were a few times when I wished they'd have finished the song they were singing before cutting to another scene.
A few of the scenes were slow and the story got lost a bit. Bradley Cooper seemed at times to be mimicking Chris Christopherson's performance of the same character in the 1976 version but I didn't care, he was doing a good job of it. Thankfully Lady Gaga didn't mimic Barbra Streisand's overly permed hairdo from the 1976 version of this movie....that would have been a deal breaker. Andrew Dice Clay played her father and his performance was a welcome departure from anything else I've seen him in. I guessing he'll be nominated for something.
Looking forward to seeing Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman.
