Escape to the Movies

Looking for an escape?  The news is crap and things seems pretty bleak at the moment.  So, hey!  Let's go to the movies!  

Tom and I saw the new A Star is Born yesterday.  No spoilers here . . . although I will say we both liked it  (And that one song?  So stuck in my head . . . ) (And when GaGa ooooooo-aahaa-oooooo?  Oh, yeah, best part of the movie . . .

Anyway.

The Streisand/Kristofferson version of A Star is Born came out when I was a senior in high school, and my friends and I so-so-so loved it.  This new one?  Better music.  Grittier.  More Real somehow.  Extremely well done.  (Plus Bradley Cooper.  With an Eddie Vedder look.  What more can I say?)  Overall, a very good way to escape for a couple of hours.

Because I think some of you might be interested, here's a fun little video . . . analyzing the evolution of A Star is Born from 1937 to 1954, 1976 to 2018.  Enjoy!

And then . . . maybe escape to a movie!
