very good. Gaga was great. Brad seems to think he can get an Oscar for playing himself. Sorry Charlie, we only want tuna's that can taste like an actor, not pretend to be swordfish.
Phenomenal acting by Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper. Their connection was so natural. A must see for sure.
Poorly paced, over-directed, so-so characters, jumped new situation without exposition.
Cooper it pulled off with incredible directing, acting and performing. A tired theme made fresh. Gaga was Gaga - outstanding. Together they were so good they were lovers - not one hint of acting but real lovers in the way they looked at each other.
Gaga and Cooper did a good job, even though the movie was too slow. The singing was very good. The screen writers have an extremely limited vocabulary. The vast amount of profanity added nothing, and was actually awful. This alone makes the movie not recommendable.
Songs were amazing, love Lady Gaga in it, the acting was natural, didn't see forced, which I liked!!!! I would watch it in the theater again!
We both loved it! I thought Bradley Cooper did a very good job directing AND acting. Before seeing it, I wasn't a big LG fan; but my opinion has changed! She was very good! I loved the songs, Sam Elliot was fantastic as usual. Pacing was a bit slow in the first 1/2. But definitely worth the ticket & I'll buy Bluray when it comes out!
Loved loved loved it!!! One of my all-time favorites! Incredible performances by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper! 😀🎶 Unfortunately, you can't please everyone.
Good singing. But lady gaga's acting is a no go. Barbra Streisand can act and sing. 3 stars is the best I can give.
Loved loved loved it!!! One of my all-time favourites! Incredible performances by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper! 😀💕🎶
Very disappointed, songs were good, one star, and Sam Elliot's performance deserves the second star!
This was one of my all time favorites! It took me to all the octaves of feeling and beyond. Loved it!!!
Overall, I didn't think it was great, but I have to say this was Bradley Cooper's best performance so far. Having said that, he was totally doing an impression of Sam Elliott, who was the best thing in the movie. Not that doing an impression of Sam is a bad choice, I think it was the right choice for sure.
Boring, cliche, dragged on forever, "Shallow" sounds like a ripoff of "Eye of the Tiger" (yuck). One star is for Sam Elliot's performance.
This movie was very boring, corny, shallow and predictable. After 5 minutes of meeting each other, the characters unrealistically found themselves in a complex, interdependent relationship.... it was like a bad Telanova. The story and the dialogue were annoying and my husband and I walked out in the middle of it.
Get the most out of this well done movie. Go see the movie in dolby sound. Amazing
If greatness of a movie is being able to use the F--- word 10 to 20 times a minute is what helps to be Oscar worthy. After 20 minutes I didn't mind asking my Wife if it's time to to leave and we did. Other people in their reviews said this is how people talk every where!!!!! No not with the people I know!!!
Save the fare. Don't understand all the hype and boasting of greatness. Found it unexciting, dialogue had a very limited vocabulary, acting was not! This movie absolutely does not compare favorably with the versions casting Judy Garland or Barbara Streisand.
Bradley Cooper will break your heart in this film (and is there any woman he stars with that he doesn't have amazing chemistry?) He expanded the male character in this remake and it works. You will think about it long after and talk about it even longer than that. Women and men both love it. If it doesn't pull in a slew of Oscars, I will be very disappointed.
both Bradley Coopers best acting ever AND Lady Gaga amazing performance. If you like her music, you must see this film. The BEST of 2018 movies.
This movie had better win some awards!!
Loved it all.
Avoid. You will regret it. If not, then something is seriously wrong with you. Seriously. Predictable - paint by numbers but the painter is beyond drunk AND stoned. Jaws 3 in 3D more clever, engaging. Badly scripted - "F" bomb dropped continuously, as a noun, verb, adjective, adverb - often all 4 in same breath. Come on Holywood, who talks like this? 10th grade drop outs in the oil patch? Not even close! Unbelievable. Boring - first 30 min was as good as it got because it was still only predictable and nadly scripted. Then it got real boring. I found myself checking my watch every 5 to 10 minutes. When would it end?Several up and left mid-way. I stuck it out. My loss.
excellent film. all those bitching about the language. you might want to get out more. as awful as it is, the f word is everywhere all the time. I don't like it, but that's reality.
Great movie, great chemistry, great acting and great music.... a possible Oscar winner.
Sooooo slow and boring.
Overall I really enjoyed the movie WITH the exception of all the swearing; hence the loss of one star. Great music and great chemistry between Gaga and Cooper. Can’t wait for the DVD to become available—- enough with keeping it in the theatres already!!!
Too much use of f word. Shameful
Great movie. Bigger Lady Gaga fan than ever.
The worst musical of the year.
Loved the entire movie - Lady Gaga is honest and real and Bradley Cooper is yummy. Music is wonderful. I've seen it 3 times and can't wait to own a DVD.
Disgusting language did they forget how to speak decent English or how to write a script.
Excellent movie, well done in every way!
Loved it! music was outstanding
Best movie EVER. Great soundtrack!
Very toxic relationship of abuse ,drunkenness and drugs not sure what all the height was about, look around are world is full of toxic relationship, drugs and alcohol was a very sad movie that was poorly done 😫
Should have called it A Star Is Boring.
Have seen this 3 times now & I'm still crying.....
reality of situations, chemistry unbelievable, and the only 1 thing i can see wrong with the movie (i am a retailer / ladies ready to wear) was Gaga's wardrobe was just plain disgusting especially the dresses...
I loved this very realistic movie. Gaga and Cooper were both superb and did justice to the movie. Hope Gaga wins an academy award....she is terribly talented (and so is Cooper). We need more movies with real human feelings.
I really can't say enough good things about this movie. The music, Bradley, Gaga...unreal!!
AMAZING MOVIE!! BRADLEY COOPER AS JACKSON TOUCHES YOUR VERY SOUL...BEST MOVIE I"VE SEEN FOR A VERY LONG TIME!!!
I liked everything about this movie !!!
Best movie in a decade. Enjoyed every second. Just totally awesome.
Loved the whole movie. Acting, music, and their chemistry...superb! Have seen it twice and will see it again
If you like Bradley Cooper, stay away from this one. You'll lose respect.
Good lord. Has Hollywood no more ideas? I've seen four variations of this movie already.
It's this year's Grease 2.
