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 . . . )
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!
