Went with the spouse to see it last night and was blown away. The chemistry between Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga was amazing as was the music. Any lingering doubts some might have about Lady Gaga’s singing ability should be utterly dispelled by this movie. She has an amazing set of pipes on her. Surprisingly Bradley Cooper can sing pretty well too. Every song but one in the movie is amazing and the one bad one is supposed to be bad though it wouldn’t shock me if it becomes popular - it comes mid movie after Gaga’s character is becoming a star and is a manufactured piece of pop dreck like you would see Fergie or Britney singing which is the point as the movie is showing the manufactured process behind making a star. It’ll probably do well because it fits so perfectly with the type of stuff that is popular nowadays.
I also went in not knowing anything about the plot beyond fading rock star discovers new star and they fall in love. I’d never seen the prior versions so the ending caught me wholly unaware. If your like me and don’t know how it ends then see it before you get spoiled. If you’ve seen prior versions then you can guess as I looked them up and they all end similarly though in different ways.
