Heather and I went to see A Star is Born recently. It is a really good movie. Guess what, Bradley Cooper can sing, he rocks and he does it really well. And, Lady Gaga can act. And as a bonus they have great chemistry together. Cooper also directed and produced the movie. I have no idea how that much talent ends up being concentrated in just one person.
You can check the link above for a synopsis but basically Cooper plays an aging rocker, Jack, who sees this young chick singer with an amazing voice, Ally, in a dive bar. Sparks fly, he helps her with her career and it zooms off to the stars, while his career, rocket charged by too much booze and pills heads downward quickly.
On the way though we get quite a ride. Lady Gaga of course can really sing, and she does some Pop diva songs in the movie but I have really like her recent album where she plays a lot slower, less produced songs that are really good. I think the sound track to this movie is something I would consider buying.
Supposedly this is the third or fourth version of this movie and I can’t tell you how this stands in relation to others because I didn’t see them!
I give this film four stars out of four or five out of five or however else you want to rate it. Go see it, you won’t be disappointed.
