A Star is Born

Recommended Posts

Given that this is the fourth telling of this tale, the whole affair is sort of an Easter egg of itself.  Still, when Gaga starts belting, she is electrifying.  And when she purposely does a bad slick number, she even makes that passable.  With Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott (as Cooper's older half brother with a similar voice), Dave Chappelle (who gets to give advice), and a covey of drag queens.  It drags toward the end (not punning) but a good popcorn film.  Also featuring Neil Young's backing band.  And Andrew Dice Clay as Gaga's dad who thinks he's a great crooner.

As a matter of pop trivia discussion some have raised the question of the film's timeline, specifically how much time elapses from the heroes' initial meeting to the end of their story.  There seems to be no specific answer to this, so it can be debated endlessly.
