I don't know what to think of this. It was good, I guess. The music was phenomenal. Gaga was great. I appreciate Bradley Cooper's dedication to this whole thing but I couldn't take his performance seriously. Pacing-wise I thought it moved too fast when it should have been going more slowly and too slowly when it should have been fast. I don't know- I don't think I know how to watch movies anymore.

I guess my biggest problem with this is that I wish it had sort of had more to say about the current climate of pop music and fame in general. It seems like every other version of this is inextricably bound to its respective era. Aside from the SNL performance/"Ass Like That" song there wasn't really anything that made it feel of the moment. That's not the movie's fault and totally all about my own expectations, I get it. It's fine. I enjoyed watching it but I'm gonna forget about it pretty soon.

Also I lost my shit when Eddie GriffinToggle Spoiler popped up.

I thought Coop sucked before this, and obviously it's not perfect but goddamn I unabashedly loved this movie to the point where I was beside myself

incredible experience. also just the way drag was portrayed i found so heartening and cool. // lol i totally swore Anthony Ramos was gay too - sad.

i think my initial opinion that seems to differ from the takes is that I really truly did not care for the whole Sam Elliott of it all. also was Chapelle necessary. Halsey tho? extremely necessary. i cackled. wonder how that was finagled.

I came across this youtube channel that has some pretty cool 10 min videos explaining why a certain actress won best actress (including explaining a lot of the context behind Garland's Star is Born nomination and eventual upset loss) and the Cher one made me think a lot about Gaga's arc. Would be super cool if she was nominated for this but won for another role, ala Cher.

totally. I was *DYING* for a scene to show the actual fallout in the media with the Grammy's moment. Like I kept wanting it to cut to Gaga in a tell-all interview about it, or show how it really actually accelerated her popularity/standing or they were seen as a total mess. something. imagine the podcast hot takes~*!*!*!!! like I just kept imagining the fallout in my mind.

kind of like the moment in the latest season of Bojack, in which he and his co-star have that sit-down after the assaultToggle Spoiler

I liked how much the love of two brightly shining stars, spinning into each others’ orbit at crucially different phases of their life-cycles, acts a mirror for all of us, all the other pairs of stars, who may shine less brightly, but still with the same light

no matter how creative and famous and rich you are, all that matters is if you’re capable of true love for yourself and for each other

the movie is successful to the degree at which you recognize your own story of falling madly in love, all the glory and all the pain, within the story of the tired poet and the blooming muse

a potent, high-relief love story of two extra-bright stars becomes that much clearer of a mirror to catch reflections of our own dancing hearts. the images of those reflections are harder to see in subtler films about subtler people and their subtle emotions and subtle ways of loving

and the making of music is the closest you can get to capturing the wordless mad magic of it all

so that’s what the movie is about, and to say it should be less about that and more about The Issues of Our Times is utterly incomprehensible to me

but I’d be the first to admit that I’m an excessively sentimental person

Not to say I unequivocally loved this movie, but there was not one second where I didn't take Bradley's performance seriously, there's a crazed energy and commitment there that no doubt made him believe he actually was Jackson Maine

Is This ‘A Star is Born’ Pop Song Supposed to Be Bad or Glorious?
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/19/movies/why-did-you-do-that-a-star-is-born.html

Diane, I heard “Why Did You Do That?” in a gay bar the other night. We need to discuss it.

It’s getting a life of its own! “Why’d you come around here with an ass like that?” I have to take guilty credit for that line. I remember when we were working on it, I said, “Can we say that?” And Gaga went, “Yeah, why not?”

And now I can’t stop saying it.

It’s seeping into the consciousness!

I saw this when it came out, and the casting thing didn’t register much since no one knew anything about the movie

now watching it again was :shock:
