animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook

a star is born

Everyone already knows what this movie is about since it’s the umpteenth telling of it. I will say, it was quite a good film. I especially liked how they did the vocals and music live (instead of lip syncing–that was one of the things The Dirt did horribly). And, while I’m not a fan of pop music and thus have not had much exposure to Lady Gaga, it’s obvious that she is a very talented musician and actor (I also rather enjoyed her acting in American Horror Story). Kudos also to Bradley Cooper for learning how to play guitar and sing for this movie. They were totally robbed at the Oscars. And despite myself, I love the song Shallow. So sue me.

My rating: 4/5
