A Star Is Born Reviews
Now in Brazil there is the song "Shallow" in Portuguese, the name is "Juntos".
One thing is for sure, the soundtrack is among the best ones I have ever heard and perfect to describe the struggle of this love story/two characters.
Although the music is quite perfect, the pace of the movie is weird and jumpy and doesn't give justice to the depth of feelings and problems that should have been highlighted through the production.
I am surprised at Lady Gaga's talent, I think she is playing her character in a superbe way, although it might be easy with possibly similarities with herself; I found myself a bit more startled by Bradley Cooper performance as he seems rather flat, considering the character.
A decent story that could have told with more depth and a better flow, incredibly sad and hopeless in putting the fingers on the strong power of addiction and weakness of some souls. Sometimes love is not enough.
I was distracted by the overuse of the
F-work, particulary in the scene between Jackson and his brother. I also could've done without all the "G-Ds." It seems like Hollywood thinks it's hip to have obscenty-laden dialogue, so it's just thrown in liberally at the expense of character development.
Although Gaga and Cooper had great chemistry, I did not cry or feel any emotion watching the movie. I had trouble forgetting I was seeing Cooper and Gaga acting. I never really connected with either character.
The music was pretty good but I'm not a fan of Gaga's voice. It's just OK to me. I realize I'm in the minority with this view, but I actually liked Cooper's singing better.
