This movie was so MEH for me, BUT Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga gave incredible performances.

Bradley Cooper is my dad, but you just disengage a bit after the first hour, felt like a loop not going anywhere.

Some movies catch you off guard with their ability to make you feel. This is one of those special movies.

I'm speechless! This is a hell of a directorial achievement from Bradley Cooper.

A Star is Born is a movie that has singing, dancing, there is love and more things. There are many characters like Lady Gaga (Ally), Bradley Cooper (Jack) and many others.
Now in Brazil there is the song "Shallow" in Portuguese, the name is "Juntos".

I must confess I was disappointed at the end of the movie, considering the amount of praises I have heard of it.
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.

An absolute masterpiece, underrated if anything, perhaps because people don't take Lady Gaga seriously, but wow, what an emotional powerhouse of a movie, so so so so sad.

An inditement of culture in 2018.

It's an okay film, but it never needed to happen. The real reason so many people are so crazy about it is Lady Gaga.

When a chick flick slowly reels you in with an interesting story and a well crafted set of characters; accompanied by a sound track you listen to alone and don't tell anyone about, you know it has risen well about its expectations and rendered you just as emotional as your significant other by the end of it. Well done Bradly Cooper, you stud.

I am still thinking about this film the next day and I could burst into tears. It is absolutely amazing!! I want to watch it again and again.

Bradley Cooper was excellent and Lada Gaga better than I expected, but the film fell short. Ally became a superstar much too quickly, and the ensuring conflict between Ally and Jackson seemed rushed even though the movie was 30 minutes too long.

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.

The star studded performances of both actors are unfortunately overshadowed by lazy storytelling, notably an ending that doesnt pack the emotional punch it tries to deliver.
May 12, 2019
This movie was a real disappointment. The dialogue is bland, the music and singing are nothing special, and the characters are stereotypes. Lady Gaga did a respectable job whereas the performance of Bradley Cooper as the fading, drunken rock star was boring.

Lady Gaga is great in anything she does!
½ May 9, 2019
Maybe a *little* overrated if someone tells you it is life-changing, but it really is a great movie with some great performances. The music is iconic.

"A Star Is Born"? I liked it better the first time it came out a decade ago... when it was called "Crazy Heart". Only with finer plotline and legendary cast (Oscars 1 win, 1 nom). ASIB was ok but sort of derivative, just smacked of a PR vehicle for Gaga, same tired "ugly duckling" narrative her publicists have been hammering for years. Would I see ASIB again? Frankly yes, but if you liked that... you'll love Crazy Heart.

Breathtaking both visually and sonically, Cooper's A Star is Born perfectly reflects the talent and capability of two artists at their creative peaks.
