| A Star Is Born
A magnificent movie, captivating performances by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. The ultimate shock was how brilliant Lady Gaga was, we knew she could sing, but didn't have any idea just how far her acting talent stretches! After watching that I can tell you it stretches far enough to earn her some Oscar gold. The movie is outstanding, the music is annoyingly perfect, the cast is great and everything shouts Oscar worthy movie. Ten out of ten!

Trivia

The opening scene with Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) performing live onstage was filmed at a 2017 country music concert in Indio, California, where the production managed to squeeze Cooper in between sets by Jamey Johnson and Willie Nelson, father of Cooper's backing band frontman Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. The sequence was completed in 10 minutes with Cooper singing exactly what is heard in the movie in front of a live audience, and they captured what was needed in just one take. A similar concession had been granted for the film Crazy Heart (2009) for a 10-minute live performance by Jeff Bridges and Colin Farrell during a break at a Toby Keith country music concert in Albuquerque's Journal Pavilion in 2008.

Ally: I started writing this song the other day. Maybe that could work, like as a chorus or something.
Ally: I'm off the deep end. Watch as I dive in. I never the meet the ground. Crash through the surface, where they can't hurt us. We're far from the shallow ...


Goofs

When Bobby takes Jack home from the rehab, they arrive to the house, Jack tells him he idolized him, then shuts the door and walks away - Bobby immediately backs up the car and leaves. Moments later, when Jack enters the house, he is carrying a suitcase and his guitar, none of which has he taken out of the truck.
