Review 2018 by Flytrap
A Star Is Born
Written by: Eric Roth, Bradley Cooper, Will Fetters
Directed by: Bradley Cooper
Starring: Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, Sam Elliot, Andrew Dice Clay
Complete cast and crew are here
Running time: 115 Mins
A hard drinking, hard living rocker discovers a young singer/songwriter and after falling in love, they struggle with the pitfalls of fame.
This might be the best version of this old story yet. Cooper and Gaga have a presence together that verges on alchemy. And usually, movies like this have second rate music. Not so here; this is one of the best soundtracks I’ve heard in a long long time. (I am impressed that Cooper wrote a lot of the songs!)
Andrew Dice Clay kills it.
I highly recommend this one; it would be a great date movie. There are no post-credit scenes, but the music in the credits kept me there till the end of them.
Flytrap rating: 9/10
