    Re: A Star Is Born

    i loved it.

    what i liked about what BC did was by the title you think you're following Gaga's journey, when you're really following his. his demise. his self-destruction.

    and the contradiction between her rise and his fall is so poingant.

    amazing film.

    He wasn't afraid to make his character look bad -- the frosting in her face, the drunk accusatory confrontation with her while she was taking a bath -- I could see other actors softening those scenes, out of a personal need to be liked.

    I like anything that shows a commitment to character, so I liked it all.

    I did not like this movie, found it very melodramatic, but I do agree Cooper was the best thing about it.

    Best movie I've seen all year. Cooper is unreal.

    Going to see it tonight. Heard good things so I am looking forward to it.

    Never saw the one with Babs and Kristofferson nor did I see the original 1937 version so I don't have anything to compare this new one to.

    There was also a Judy Garland 1954 musical version that I didn't even know about until recently.

    I thought it was really good.

    If anyone likes this trailer, they'd probably like the movie. It's a good representation of what you'll be watching.
