A Star is Born is a very fitting title for this film but is also could be called Supernova and when you see this film you’ll understand why. Let me put this simply. A Star is Born (which is a remake) is OUTSTANDING!
First of all Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga will be up for awards all year because of this film and it is much deserved. Bradley Cooper learned to play guitar and sing for over a year to play this part and when you hear the music you will be shocked at how amazing he plays and sounds. Lady Gaga officially breaks out on the acting scene with a stellar performance as a struggling singer who is about to give up on her dream until she meets Jackson Maine (Cooper). Gaga brings the punch with her voice as you can imagine but it is her acting that comes out shining.
This film is a love story and can be considered a musical but I have to be honest in the sense that you will find yourself smiling, laughing and moved so emotionally that I cant remember the last time a movie has done that for myself. The other breakout star besides Gaga is Bradley Coopers real life dog Charlie who steals the scene in the few that he is in.
Upon seeing the film I went home and downloaded about half of the music that was involved because it is all original and done by Cooper and Gaga and I am being dead serious when I say I would see a Bradley Cooper concert, that is how good he was. I am going to include some songs at the end.
With all this being said A Star is Born is the best film I have seen in 2018. Avengers is still my top overall but that is just personal preference. A Star is Born is receiving 9.1 buckets of popcorn.
