A Star is Born (2018)
A musician helps a young singer find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral.
Yeah…this movie wasn’t for me. I liked the music, for the most part, but just could not get invested in the characters and as soon as I figured out what was going to happen to Bradley Cooper’s character I checked out.
Lady Gaga is a normal person, with a normal job, that happens to sing at a small drag club once a week. Bradley Cooper is a country western star with a hearing problem and a serious alcoholic. Drunk and wanting more Cooper shows up at the bar Lady Gaga performs at and decides she’s got talent.
Next thing you know she’s a star, they’re getting married, and he’s getting worse. Dude needed some serious therapy, eventually gets some but recovers just enough to take his own life.
Definitely not a happy ending and I’m not sure what the message here was either. I think I would have liked it better if it had just focused on one of them, instead of both. Just wasn’t my cup of tea.
