I’m the type of person that has every intention of going to the movies to see talked about movies, and then what usually ends up happening is life. Business. And I miss out on them! That’s exactly what happened with A Star Is Born. EVERYONE has been talking about this movie since its time in theaters. Recently in won a ton of awards. So, on a recent Target trip I decided that it was time to see what all the fuss was about.
I imagined it to be largely a love story. It was. It was a lot more than that as well. It was FULL of music. Original and creative tunes written by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Both of them surprised me in their own ways. Bradley always tends to play the clean cut heartthrob type character. He was straight up scruff the entire movie. And had a very grumbly voice. I pictured Gaga as someone who is constantly done up with makeup and hair etc. Although she was made up for a portion of the movie we got to see a stripped down Gaga.
I loved it! I won’t ruin the ending. However, you will cry. Be prepared. It was a moving and touching love story. I’m glad I decided to check it out!
