Sitting on my TV stand in my bedroom is the original release of A Star is Born with Kristofferson and Streisand. That it is utmost favorite movie of all time. Not only was the music just absolutely perfect the chemistry between the two was perfection.
When I starting season the previews of the new release I absolutely couldn't wait. I was already a fan of both Bradley Cooper and Gaga, so I was so excited to see them make my favorite movie of all time!
I pre-ordered the tickets via Fandango a month ahead. AMC at Chenal Promenade premiered the movie on Thursday Night @ 7:00. This was the first showing in Little Rock. I wasn't surprised that the Premier night wasn't full due to the fact that I didn't hear any ads for the movie.
Greg and I both love movies and music so off we went. The movie reached beyond any expectations that we both had. The chemistry between Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga will give you chill bumps. Bradley Cooper's voice is perfect for the character. I don't think that any other actor could have pulled it off in this modern age. Ladies..........he can sing! Those baby blue eyes will give you chills. Lady Gaga is so genuine in this movie. I imagine she is much like Alli, the character she plays. The song choices for the movie and breathtaking.
The scenes are familiar as the one with Streisand and Kristoferrson. I am glad they left the similarities. This is what made the movie perfect to me. This movie will make you laugh, cry and you will leave with chill bumps. The last song in the movie is spectacular with the full orchestra coming into the song. I am quite certain this movie will have Oscar and Grammy nominations.
Friday at the office, I couldn't stop talking about the movie. I rushed to download the soundtrack and I think I have played it 20-30 times. When I got home from work last night I told Greg that I am going back to see it again tomorrow, if I go myself, I am going again. And again, I did go. In fact, he decided to go with me the second go around. We both enjoyed it as much as the first night. I probably will see it again a few times before it goes to DVD.
P.S. I might be a little obsessed.
