A Star Is Born

I remember seeing the Kris Kristofferson/Barbara Streisand remake in the threather when it came out over 40 years ago. This new one looks pretty good to me.

Have yet to see a bad telling of this story. The remakes are spread wide enough apart to make it fresh for each generation.

Redbox pick for the weekend. Overall, very good. The movie starts stronger than it finishes IMO, but you easily get wrapped up in the characters and story. Notable standout for me was Andrew Dice Clay. I didn't know he was in it, and I really like the range and heart he brought to the role.

Very good movie imo...very sad ending
I'm not a fan of this genre and never liked Streisand so wasn't really interested in this remake but wife and 2 sisters in law said suck it up buttercup we are watching this.

I've watched all 4 versions of this movie. I like the original from 1937, probably my favorite of all of them. I least liked the 1954 version. I thought the latest release was similar to the kristofferson/streisand release, but I liked both of them.

I liked the 2019 version, and sometimes listen to the soundtrack. Was really impressed with Gaga acting, did not expect it.
