This is sad and pathetic tale of famous people romanticizing their own shallow empty lives.

What an uninspiring amount of drivel.

Either way it's pretty entertaining.

but now it's just become boring and repeated...

I'm no music fan, and I just watched this film out of boredom.

Dreadfully dull; I thought I would like it, as I'm a lover of musicals and romantics movies; but this one dragged on and on.

")-and same with the cliche "controlling manager" thread that isn't even committed to.

Both calling the movie "a waste of time" or "absolutely wonderful" is an exaggeration on my part.

Compelling acting and dynamic soundtrack .

Very enjoyable.

Some good cinematography work, but way too many close ups, shallow depth of field and boring POV shots, I was visually tired after watching 60% of the film.

Boring and Overrated.

First hour maybe was intertaining the rest was just too long and boring

So predictable & so overrated .

A Star is Definitely Bored .

Stunning performances .

The movie was so slow in moving the story forward.

First part of the movie is good, but then it turns into boring mess.

I just watched it because of Lady Gaga in the starring role but at some times I was about to fall asleep.

It's just a bit to boring though...

I came for the music, but everything as was slow .

I thought this film was okay, my wife loved it acting and story were both good but for me there was something missing and I also thought the movie was predictable knowing the outcome of the movie by just watching the first 20 minutes.

What a waste of time and my money!

It is unpredictable and magnificent.

Overrated, boring, nothing special .

I was so bored with the second part of the movie, that I found myself thinking about something completely different during it.

Seen a lot worse and paid more so worth the watch overall.

The entire movie is drawn out and the ending tries to be overly emotional.

There are some stunning moments as far as direction is concerned.

She was fantastic and the chemistry between her and Bradley Cooper was thrilling!

I took a while to see this film and whilst I enjoyed it, mostly I found it a bit flat in places.

Poor film dragged along by a great soundtrack .

Amazing, breathtaking music and vocals.

The negatives: The central characters, and therefore the whole movie that centres around them, are both pretty boring.

I think after that it dragged on.

But this was way too long and way too Boring.

Don't waste your time with this lame, cheesy film.

I found it boring slow and I just didn't care for the characters.

I still prefer the boring film version of Barbara and Kris.

Cliche, bad acting, enjoyed the music .

Cooper was not convincing as a famous country-and-western star, and the music all too predictable.

Lady Gaga is an uninspiring actress who fails to convince that she is in love with anything.

First half of the movie was great, second half was just boring and I found myself checking my phone every three minutes bored to death.

I Enjoyed It .

The story was cliche and uninteresting.

Unfortunately I already knew the ending - and still it was engaging as it can be.

Then the second half dragged a bit.

Boring as hell .

Jack is a pathetic addict, the story arc is boring, Shallow is the only decent song.

Lady Gaga is a screen gem and what a performance which had me totally immersed in her from start to finish and I hope she gets more movie roles.

One cliche after another, average songs, unlikeable characters.

For me, BC was stunning especially in the first 2/3 of the film LG not so, almost in all parts.

Narcissistic, self involved, self absorbed, needy, and very very boring.

Great acting but ultimately plot is just too predictable .

Bradley Cooper over acted, his over painful performance was tedious.

However, there were some dull parts that I feel should've been removed.

Bradley Cooper has early moments of credibility but the constant in-your- face dreary alcoholic behavior grows old quickly.

Cliche boring whatever type of slop is being produced today it ain't no Casablanca


But this was naive, stupid, predictable and i am happy as hell, that i didnt pay good Money to see it in the Cinemas.

The acting was better than I expected but the storyline was predictable and unrealistic.

Like someone wrote, a star is Bored.

It's so boring and soooo predictable.

Absolutely breathtaking.

A total waste of time .

Great but too slow .

The whole movie has a bunch of pointless discussions and singing scenes.

The story is a bit cliche and predictable, and Cooper was definitely coming off a bit "rapey" at the beginning.

The movie is entertaining, especially for the songs and to see Gaga's debut in the big screen, but I would have enjoyed it probably better if it wasn't for the super hype that have been generated around it.

The fast paced rise of Gaga's career and the development of their relationship happened seemed a little rushed.

A cliche from start to end.

I love the way this movie is directed and great acting but the pace in this movie is too slow and would be better if the movie was just a little bit shorter.

Absolutely entertaining even as it touched on a deeply difficult Illness.

A Star Is Born is a movie with many beautiful and engaging moments.

This movie is very very boring so please consider watching something else, or if you are stuck in cinema this might be very very long stay.


Both pointless tragedy and old, depressed rock star.

Bradley Cooper's voice (speaking), is the only thing that shines in this mundane, self righteous, farce of a movie.

This is the one movie of the year, where I really wonder how it has been recognized as such a masterpiece by almost everyone, and really it is just one more remake of very well - known Hollywood story, cliché love story and familiar tale about glamour and pain of fame.

An entertaining ride, featuring two terrific characters that you will definitely find yourself forgetting are played by the dude from the Hangover and the woman who sung Poker Face, A Star is Born is bursting with heart and soul.

This movie is a waste of time.

Long and boring .

Waste of time, don't watch it.

The movie shows-off great emotional engaging scenes and performances from a powerful cast and production team, giving a powerful plot about love and fame, within the modern era, with a heartbreaking and moving lesson to give.

Boring, uneventful vanity project .

The storyline is a little slow at times.

I am disappointed to find the movie to be very predictable and despite it being touted as a "romantic" movie, it is devoid of joy and there is little romance to speak of.

Boring & predictable.

Uninteresting in all aspects .

Wow, I mean BORING!


A dragged out movie which seem to go on forever and not knowing the story the ending did not go as i thought it would.

The movie is too long...

Boring, awful script, terrible acting.

The chemistry between Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper was breathtaking and kept me on the edge of my seat waiting for their next move.

I would have loved Bradley Cooper's performance if I could understand a single word he was saying; he mumbled his sentences in a very annoying and pretentious way.

Cliche after cliche .

A bitter taste of confusing elements which tries to turn the blind eye to an outrageous fact which I cannot mention to avoid spoil alert.

Pace is absurdly slow, cinematography is as basic as it gets and the acting of both Bradley and Gaga is mediocre and I honestly cannot understand the buzz over them, especially when it comes to Gaga.

But the ending of the movie is just so predictable.

Slow moving .. lost interest .

Never heard of Bradley Cooper, his character was pathetic and boring.

It's a boring, cheesy movie.

There is a good balance between music, dialogs, story, character development etc. Sometimes a little bit too predictable and goody, but still very enjoyable.

Far too long .

A very slow movie and the actors tried to be like the 1970s movie to no avail.

Everything felt empty and flat with all of the scenes that were supposed to be emotionally gripping somehow coming out half-assed AND forced all at the same time, which is perhaps the most impressive thing about the film.

Snooze fest

i got super sad, but it is definitely worth the watch.

Worth watching?

Cooper does an amazing job as a drunk talented musician but the character of Allie is so bland and one-sided, no nuance at all.

Good acting, but the story telling is full of flaws, so boring, snoozefest

So boring.

Boring and predictable...

The script sucks, the characters are flat and boring, the story makes no sense, the acting is really bad as well (Lady Gaga plays Lady Gaga, I can't believe they are even giving her awards, it's a joke) the directing is poor, and the songs are corny and lack good lyrics which supposedly is what Gaga's character is good at (songwriting).

A Star is Boring.

A Snore Is Born .

The worst movie i've ever seen.

Dave Chappelle, Andrew Dice Clay and the rightfully Oscar-nominated Sam Elliott make for engaging supporting roles, and the likes of Alec Baldwin, Halsey and an assortment of chattering drag queens perform as themselves.

Cheesy, banal suckage.

Nothing special, very boring.

I did still hope that the end would be surprising, and it was: susprisingly annoying and predictable.

, boring, stinker full of incongruous choppy scenes, and inexplicable vignettes.

Gaga sings great, but she plays herself & Cooper is good alcoholic, but overall bland.

Sad, empty, dreary, mumble, swearing.

We were both very pleased and are still engaging in conversations about the movie.

the movie is watchable if you are really bored.

Slow start, strong finish .

A Cliche Is Reborn .

I got bored and had to fast forward.

There is no "chemistry" between the two leads - everything is so rote, so cliched and so dull.


No storyline at all.

Thoroughly enjoyable and one that I'll add to my personal library.

Incredibly overrated, amazing songs and voices, but what little story there is could be told in less than 90 minutes, and then perhaps it wouldn't seem so long, dull and boring.

I think had it been predictable drivel like a lot of romantic films are, you would not have had the highs and the lows of the relationship.

To sum up, this movie is worth watching if you are a fan of drama/romance .

The movie is ordinary, pedestrian, and just boring.


Was boring at times, disjointed story.

To long, to slow, no idea what all the hype is about.

The first ever movie of Bradley Cooper that I found so boring and predictable.

Acting was fine but was so bored.

Some people found it dragged on, personally I feel that if it was 20-30 minutes longer it would have served well.

The story is well known and predictable, and so I suppose the challenge is to find something new to show or say, or some musical performances that blow you away.

This is boring .

This took slow burn to a new level.

This total waste of time it was copied from Bollywood movie Aashiqui 2 which came out 2013 and the songs better in Aashiqui 2 its about time Hollywood start copying Bollywood but the movie is super boring I waste my time watching it

The production is bland and you really notice just how damn long this drags on for.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz .

Almost everything, from the very beginning, is easily predictable.

I would say this movie is definitely worth watching if you enjoy good character acting, if you enjoy the interplay of relationships, and if you enjoyed the performance aspect of the singing and musical play by Bradley Cooper.

Over-long and very boring

I wish I had subtitles on cause it was hard to follow.

Long and tedious.

The movie was shot with high energy, but it's just window dressing for a bland movie.

Once passed the soundtrack and cinematography, it was tedious to watch.

Fairly enjoyable but quite the formulaic romance .

A Star is Born 2018 is an entertaining movie, that appears to me to be well made, with what seems to me to be a formula, that is used to make me think it is made by someone who loves me.


A very boring film except a song Shallow .

So slow, boring, insanely quiet I had to turn it up then glaringly loud when music played.. just...

If anything it makes them even duller.

The rest of the movie was pretty damn boring.

Slow at times.

I disagree that it was entirely predictable.

Don't waste your time.

Just cliche after cliche.

The pacing of the film was uneven with too many slow stretches.

Superficial characters and a boring story is something that even good-looking actors can't compensate.

Not only I had poker face through the whole movie, I was also bored to hell.

A Star Is Born - An exciting music oriented film, "A Star Is Born" excels in every way, and not just the leads are great.

TLDR: Slow-paced, predictable movie.

Personally, I enjoyed the film but found it slightly formulaic and I felt that it dragged towards the end of the movie, The music and songs were of course flawless and very impactful in the telling of the story.

Very confusing.

One of the most boring movies I've watched.

I thought it was about the Lady Gaga's career, but instead, the movie is a disappointing attempt to show the cliche of a tragic love story with a not-that-great soundtrack.

During the second part of the movie, in one moment, I found out, that from the boredom, I did not even remember what exactly characters said a second before, because I started thinking about something completely different.

Add in an intense love story and emotion-provoking music brought to you by the vocals of Lady Gaga.

This was a very long, boring film.

Dull .

if you're a fan of Brad Cooper or Gaga you will enjoy it and probably have tears in your eyes by the end but if neither of these two stars interest you, you are going to be pretty bored with this one....

This is just my taste, but I don't like most of the music in thisi movie, is not my genre, i like the main song (shallow) and maybe another one that I can't remember now, but in general I was bored most of the time the movie was with the songs.

I had a completely different idea of how this would end, but they went with another direction that was totally unexpected that left me shocked.

My old fogieness caused me to find her pretentious and doing anything for attention.

Dull, slow, confusing, depressing.

I found this movie to be quite enjoyable.

Movie was a great one but the flow was too slow; i liked lady Gaga's acting.

So boring.



Absolutely Breathtaking .

An amazing story of love, and a final unexpected and out of cliches, just perfect, I'm only don't give 10 because I think that the movie doesn't have very chocking speeches.

I found this movie entertaining enough to keep me engaged, and even got choked up a few times.

The plot was also somewhat predictable.

Solid movie and well worth watching...

Yes, there are parts that tend to get boring.

I had two emotions after watching this movie, I laughed because people actually enjoyed it, and I cried because I actually spent my hard earned money on this awful movie.

While I did like the music and there is a sad moment, it doesn't merit the praise it is getting because overall the movie really is dragged out about really nothing.

It left me bored to tears.

the film is very engaging.

BORING story, TEDIOUS music .

It is a super boring and overhyped movie.

Ending was very predictable.

One of the worst movies I have ever seen.


The good: The acting was goodThe chemistry between the actors is believableThe songs were fineThe bad: The whole thing is dreary and downbeatSo much of the speech is mumbled I actually checked my speakers as I thought it must be a faultIt's paced like a snail on Prozac.

Regardless of this, "A Star is Born" is worth watching for the chemistry between both leads alone.

Boring .

Overall, it is a good and entertaining movie.

"A Star is Born" may be the definition of Oscar bait, yet the film does enough to differentiate itself from previous versions and is legitimately enjoyable on its own.

This movie is literally the worst movie i've seen in 2018 iam shoked of the overrating that it got the reasons that got me to watch it first the hype it got seconed because it won a golden globe and movies like black banther that has a great song didn't win in my opinion and as Eminem said they only give theese award to the people they love.

Look, it's entertaining enough for the first round.

after the wedding, the movie becomes draggy and boring .

Don't waste your time, it's not worth watching except you're a fan lik

Found myself bored by the plot and a majority of the other actors.

This film is an extremely well-acted, well-directed passion project about what it means to be a struggling star in a modern and fast-moving music industry, where those who are considered "has beens" are left behind and those who want to make it have to look and perform in a certain way, in order to be successful.

I highly recommend seeing this entertaining love story.

But above all that, this movie is BORING!

Then it bogged down, became predictable, boring and in the end, way too long.

An enjoyable movie .

What makes the fourth and probably best installment of "A Star is Born" work is the amazing direction of Bradley Cooper and the stunning acting and singing performances from both Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.

Dont mind the romantic cliche Story.

Dull and uninspired.

Still, I left the theater with a feeling of more than I came for.

A Star is Born owned this, making me feel empty, fiery, uncomfortable, and even hopeful, all in its 2 hour run time.

I did watch this but getting bored in some of the scenes presented.

All the songs are like listening to someone whine in a monotone.

Even the inestimable Sam Elliott couldn't add much to this wooden, slow moving clunker.

He watches her performance, is delighted with her talent and herself, and from that moment things go fast - they fall in love with each other, Jack helps Ally become a real star etc. However, of course, only then the real problems start to emerge, Jack cannot defeat his demons, the finale is tragic, which can be seen from miles away, the most cliché ending in the world, calculated for cheap emotions.

The movie is just so boring that I Saw it in Just an hour and everything was predictable.

Don't waste your time.

Yes, the story is a familiar one but the very start of the film did show promise and a fresh handling of a story we've seen before, but shortly thereafter the weaknesses start to creep in and everyone in my group left the theater underwhelmed and disappointed.

Good movie but slow paced .

Boring af, she was the best thing in it.

Entertaining .

In conclusion I have to say it's just a big crap of a movie, don't waste your time watching.

Boring and insipid .

Very engaging movie I enjoyed it until the very end and it has maybe the worst ending in movie history.

Waste of Time.

Some of the scenes were touching, etc. Overall, predictable, overrated movie with some good moments.

Good acting, but so boring .

Overhyped and zzzzz movie .

There's such confusing flashbacks from them and now, and there is really no climax nor does the second half really even have a story line.

If it's not a Bio-Pic, a Superhero Movie or a dumb comedy, then it's a bore of a re-make or a pretentious slog.

Don't get me wrong, I am a huge Gaga fan, and I'm ok with coopers work but this movie was sooooo boring.

From there on, the ending becomes predictable.

Unwatchable for a second time.

It's incredibly boring, horribly edited, and just an overall lazy movie.

Entirely too long, excruciating periods of boring stuff that added nothing to the story, awful ending.

My viewing was colored by the fact that my 20 year old daughter committed suicide after four year of intensive treatment by a multi-disciple medical team.

The lack of chemistry between Lady GaGa and Cooper is front and center and the story line is so boring and wooden.

Just seemed a little slow and too underdeveloped to really care.

Of course the story is moving, of course the directing was superb, of course the singing was entertaining.

I thought they could have added a bit more to it in terms of substance and plot development but nonetheless an enjoyable flick with some tremendous acting but unexpected (Gaga) actors.

Boring movie about an alchoholic who embarrasses his wife and cant handle it.

Was so bored by this movie.

A worst movie for Oscar.

The middle was a bit off, I felt I got lost in the story and I felt like it was just a bit uninteresting and it felt rushed.

Even though the movie was lacking in many ways, the way Bradley directed the live performances of the movie is absolutely breathtaking (Jackson playing the guitar, damn!

This movie was incredible movie for me and beautiful performance by GaGa and Bradley from a perfect couple, very exciting and well produced.

I also think Lady Gaga has a stunning voice and did very well in her acting debut.

So boring.

then, it became draggy and boring .

Worth watching for the music - and Gaga!

The very problem is the extremely boring plot.

Worst movie .

The story line is terribly cliche.

Also, film is (absolutely) unnecessary, pointless long.

I'm actually still watching the movie and got so bored and annoyed I had to write a review while the movie was still playing.

It was a flimsy story with zero surprises (even if you haven't seen the previous versions) and like many reviewers, I found it extremely boring.

his ending puts a totally depressing note in an entertaining feature .

The script on the whole didn't impress me, seeming predictable and cliche at points and not having consistency in focuses throughout.

The plot is pretty basic, predictable and boring.

Was fairly boring because it was almost exact replica of an Indian Bollywood movie called Aashiqui 2.

But that's also when the movie starts to move back into the 'Shal-hal-lo-lows' with odd (unnecessary) camera work, a disjointed narrative and the usual cheesy clichés are ramped up like a checklist through to the end.

I regret to say that after a good opening, it became fairly tedious.

This helped make the movie enjoyable and the story was good.

waste of my time .

It will bore you to tears .

One of the worst movie from 2018.

Awful ,don't waste your time.

Her dreary performance is of an actress who looks like she is trying to remember her lines and indeed that fact she should be showing emotion when delivering them.

Cooper is good alcoholic, but so were 10000 actors in 100 different movies before him, the rest of his role is bland.

The songs all sound generic to me and I nearly fell asleep a couple times with Gaga's singing.

It's pretty boring and way too long!

If you like the country music oryou are fan of lady gaga then you will probably enjoy all the movie, otherwise you will feel a little bit bored with some parts.

Gaga sings great, but she plays herself & Cooper is good alcoholic, but overall bland.

The movie was just too slow for my taste.

The bad side of the movie (beside being so predictable, cliche and with a very simple script) is the music.

From the acting of Cooper and Gaga, the captivating storyline, and the breathtaking performance of Shallow (which I couldn't get out of my head for the rest of the week); it was just...

Boring .

He's a tedious drunk, she's a solid performer with virtually no back story of any interest at all.

The storyline is dull.

There's a little bit too much of the f word (how true that is to real life characters like this, I don't know) and it doesn't always sail a totally steady course, but it's still a highly worthwhile drama, with an earth shattering, gut wrenchingly unexpected ending that leaves you with a solid emotional punch.

There is something empty in the process of Ally's rising to fame, since she was not being true to her art or herself; a process most artists go through.

This film is so full of cliches and predictable turns that I could hardly finish watching it.

But I thought the play between Bradley Cooper's character and Sam Elliott was much more compelling and moving.

The boring movie, one can name it

Zzzzz .

Their chemistry is so intense.

A Star is Bored .

Achingly intense, immersive and finely tuned, this film is an exploration of love against the backdrop of fame and stardom.

It started really well, looked like the relationship between Cooper and Gaga characters would go far, but it just ended up a cheesy cliche.

Such a waste of time!

It was so painful for me to watch Bradley cooper as an alcoholic I always loved to watch him in movies with cool personality like hangover but he is so sick in this movie with weird tone Lady Gaga is the show stealer and just amused with her tone overall it's worth watching movie


The male lead Jack is a cliche of a Rockstar: Rough voice, alcohol and drug abuse problems, doesn't care about boundaries of socially acceptable behaviour.

There's no plot.

I did not see or knew it was a reworked film, but had the feeling, if it was this dull with their acting lines and music, it could might as well be.

A self-indulgent piece of Hollywood trash.

Bradley Cooper looked horribly sunburned throughout the whole film, and I could have gotten past that, but the story line dragged (although I was familiar with it from previous versions).

So boring .

Boring, Typical, Repetitive , Overrated, predictive .

The whole film just felt empty, with two hopeless empty people mumbling their way through a dreary world, on their slow descent into unfulfilled sadness.

Started off strong-ended boring .

Bradley Cooper drug his scenes out way too long and honestly, I felt that the movie could have just not had an ending (at least that's what it felt like).

Story is predictable.. Its copied from a bollywood movie named Aashiqui 2.

Waste of time .

She bafflingly sticks by him through thick and thin, and when she does finally lose it at the end of this 2 hour plus bore fest, it's almost impossible to care, assuming you can still muster the effort to pay attention.

It ran a bit long but was touching and entertaining.

So, we have a movie about two completely boring super stars, that I was not able to attach to emotionally in any way.

Fair and entertaining .

That was annoying, but there was so much that was just boring, boring, boring.

The plot is too predictable and falls very flat!

It was so pointless, fast, and unreasonable.

It's repetitive and very, very predictable.

Possibly the worst movie of 2018.

The songs were quite enjoyable; that is the area where Gaga truly shines.

Each and every frame of the film is just fascinating to look at.

What a dull, boring movie this is.

You almost forget about the songs however in the many concert scenes; Matthew Libatique's cinematography is judicious, an engrossing shoot, from the bright neons of Ally's tour right through to Jackson's rock concerts which we see in the same drunken haze of their star.

I found this a great movie to fall asleep to.

My wife and I both enjoyed it and we always watch very different types of movies.

There was a star though, Lady Gaga put in a stellar performance, amazing, but the rest of it was dull.

With an unexpected voice that growls like a weary instrument---tainted by alcohol, drugs, and inner demons----he embodies the scarred soul too weak to firmly grasp the lifeline that Ally extends.

It is a love story for the ages and the two leads sparkle with intense chemistry.


The whole thing was quite lame; and long and boring.

After a fairly clumsy start the movie shows a large amount of potential: as a commentary on the superficiality of modern music, as an engaging passing-of-the-torch story or simply as a struggling-artist-claws-her-way-to-the-top story.

In addition, Lady Gaga makes for an intriguing leading lady in her first major Hollywood role, and it's obvious that she's taking the role very seriously.

The soundtrack is quite boring, although it may appeal to fans of the singer.

the two leads are good, but the long drawn out dialogues add nothing and are tedious.

Horible boring slow .



Enjoyable .

Just keeps on being boring, don't waste your time.

All and all ASIB was an engaging movie, one with viseral characters trying to navigating life, love, and the side effects of fickle fame, good and bad--I smiled with the characters, and I too was moved to tears when their hearts where broken, and any movie that can achieve this is worthy of my esteem.

It's a boring film.

First part of the movie is good, but then it turns into boring mess.

It tells a gripping story that is relatable to every person in one way or another.

this was long, tedious, boring and just one of the worst movies i've seen in a long time.

boring, predictable, lacks content.


Well worth watching and of course the soundtrack is amazing.

The story was rather disjointed too.

First off the film overall was too boring and one dimensional.

The movie was beyond boring and pretty much predictable.

It was very slow with scenes that were pointless.

The love story was drawn out, as was the conflicts after married life, and I fell asleep before the finale.

I really liked the acting of Bradley Cooper, and his facial reactions were very mature and likeable, but some of the Lady Gaga's reactions were really confusing and frustrating.

Cooper's character is a boring stiff.

Extremely disjointed storytelling with a very poor flow to it.

but for someone who likes drama it was enjoyable

The worst movie u can imagine .

An excruciating Grammy's-scene aside, it is mostly sentimental and cliche-ridden.

The dialogue was pointless and banal.

The movie itself is moving at a snail's pace, though, and I found it terribly boring.

Melodramatic waste of time .

For me, its a bit predictable, tidy, and uneccesary.

I really wanted to like this film but after 45 minutes I'd had enough and had to leave.

soooo boring.

This current version died at the beginning and the corpse had to be dragged to the painful end.

This is the one movie of the year, in case of which, I really wonder, how it has been recognized as such a masterpiece by almost everyone, but really it is just one more average remake of very well - known Hollywood story, cliché love story and familiar tale about glamour and pain of fame.

The minor flaw I can see is that the second part can be a bit predictable.

This movie is very good, with mature and solid content and it also has an absolutely beautiful soundtrack and this makes it even more enjoyable.

Dialogue was slow, predictable and full of so much drawn out facial emotion, that it competes with the best of Kabuki theatre, where characters strike facial expressions.

Don't waste your time

Although this is the fourth remake of the 1937 original, first-time director Bradley Cooper and his leading lady Gaga both make stunning debuts, which helps the dated material feel relevant.

However lad gaga performance and their songs were good bu it seem to be like an unfinnished movie with too many dragged out scenes of reflection and her manager was a bad casting or just needed to be in movie more.

Disjointed, uber cliche, bad acting.

So for a Movie, I give it a 5 as predictable, as an Album, I give it a 9.

In my opinion, the film is brilliant and absorbing.

Even though that picture had an intriguing theme, I found it to be generally boring and never really caught the connection between it's two principals.

Boring movie I don't understand why is high rated .

Pathetic trite boring.

I dunno if just all the lady gaga fans say this movie is great cuz they are fans of her music career but this movie is so overated and cliche that it makes me bored just thinking about the time i wasted watching this flop

Well-crafted and emotional, "A Star is Born" is well worth the watch for cinephiles and average movie-goers alike.

Very very corny and tedious .

Pointless remake.

Cliche .

It's a film with touching heartfelt performances from a script that is truly engaging.

A good movie should have either an emotional finale or a unexpected twist.

Two hours of dreary mumbling .


As poetry, they are trite in the extreme and the music adds nothing.

Second part is boring .

Although the acting was good, the story telling, and script, was bland, slow, and uneventful.

Predictable, cliché storyline, Bradley Cooper has to mumble his way through the movie .

The movie has an amazing story but a little slower and lengthy that what I prefer

I found that the script is wrong because it is repetitive, boring and full with clichés that unfortunately all in all give a negative result.

It dragged, and felt like a Gaga documentary.

It will be a waste of time.

Ally in the last presentation, was wearing a magnificent dress, in a breathtaking scene.

Jack cannot defeat his demons, the finale is tragic, but can be seen from miles away, the most cliché ending in the world, calculated for cheap emotions.

I found the characters boring, the scenes dak and grungy.

Why do I want to see a rich person waste their life because of supposed early life unhappiness or whatever?

Entertaining yet boring, not Oscar material at all.

Because the rithm, characters and story is really boring: The movie is about effortless way of getting to the top of music industry for a girl who was in the right place at the right time.. that's it.

A pointless (spoiler) tragedy .

Exaggerated and boring...

Over-long and very boring .

Predictible, Cliché, and Redundant .

Boring and cheap .

An over long tedious storyline, and not worthy of any Oscar Nomination.

Combined with his singing and playing a various musical instruments he provides quite a compelling performance.

Then the movie gains some momentum, but can't keep it up for more than twenty minutes, because everytime something starts developing the movie hits you with some boring stuff.

The Star is cliché.

I would say poor dialogue delivery of lady Gaga make this film weak and boring.

If you have any taste for good movie or music -dont waste your time.

I enjoyed it basically because I like Bradley Cooper .

What a disappointment, don't waste your money.

The whole film was far too long and dragged, in the end I could not wait for it to finish.

The script very quickly and superficially jumps to Ally's success, and although we see Jack struggling with addiction and childhood demons, the protagonists' motives are shown very superficially and unconvincingly, real drama/conflict is nowhere to be found, there is a boring story about family drama, emerging from poor dialogues.

I also don't get the hype over the soundtrack (Shallow has surpassed Michael Jackson's 'Thriller for the most number of awards won,) with most of the lyrics I found basic and trite.

Boring, pointless, made to solely win awards, characters who are dull and annoying.

So boring, soooo predictable.

The soundtrack isn't as catchy as "La La Land"'s iconic and fadeless compositions; however, Lady Gaga' and Bradley Cooper's "Shallow" is a shoo-in for Best Original Song, a global phenomenon, a hit aimed by a meaningful, intense live performance amid the film.

Come on people; the plot is so cliche, Lady Gaga only did the best she knows how to do: sing.

All in all it was very entertaining and I enjoyed seeing Gaga sing "real music" before they changed her persona.

Gripping, rock soild and just chllingly well played ...

Cooper is good alcoholic, but so were 10000 actors in 100 different movies before, the rest of his role is bland.

Most Boring crappiest movie I'vee er seen.

Overall it is worth watching.

Movie fast forward a lot, from single to spouse, and cut the boring dates?

Absolutely breathtaking .

It could have easily ran on the Lifetime Network and had spared many people the boredom of watching it in a theater.

Boring cast, boring story, boring movie and all too predictable!

the first half hour itslef the movie begins to slow and become the same old story we have seen over and over again..maybe six or eight years ago this would have been a new and wild concept to show on screen...

Very boring and very slow .

The movie is honestly really boring/slow/predictable.

So bored is not funny.

Overly long & meaningless,quite pointless.

Overall enjoyable .

The thing is that the movie was kind of boring.


It's good, but a bit pretentious and unrealistic .

Overall, a truly enjoyable film.

Boring .

Anything but dull, if you understand empathy and true love.

It was a complete waste of time watching this movie.


But it's one of the movies that you feel bored and sleepy after 30 mins of it.

It has an uneventful storyline with a horrendous soundtrack.

Films of this nature easily become self-aware and self-indulgent.

Cooper and Gaga are good but their script and story are empty and terribly boring and not credible.

Waste of time.

Rockstar cliche meets Mary Sue .

Loved Dave Chappelle in it but the rest was just so very overrated and annoying and boring.

For all the Star is Born films, this one was slower than molasses to get to wherever it was they were headed.

Incredibly boring .

Hugely disappointed and bored.

Dragged on too long, average acting, cliche story...

It is contrived, pretentious and asinine all in one.

One of the worst movies I've watched in the last 20 years, it's possible it's one of the worst movies I've seen ever.

The film is a little slow and understated.

All this being said the plot was rather predictable, even without watching the past versions.

It is cliche or not.

Slow, long and acting was poor with no chemistry between the leads.

The singing became tidious and it dragged on and on.


They both acted with extreme passion (surprising: Gaga) and both showed their immense musicality (unexpected: Cooper).

It's got a big bulky buildup filled with positivity in its first half, only to then go down in a classic (and quite predictable) tragic path in the latter half.

its too long and very boring.

Too long and slow .

My biggest quibble is with the pacing, or rather the fact that the movie slows down/gets predictable.

However, the pacing of this movie is so slow as I was checking my watch a couple of times and finding some scenes to be incredibly long that they just dragged forever to make a point.

Definitely worth watching!!!!

I wasn't expecting frothy romance, and I enjoy a good drama, but this really, really dragged.

The rest is dull and not that much more.

Sam Elliot was so touching and intense and all three were perfect in this movie.

The whole 'rockstar falls in love with a random girl and makes her a superstar' thing is too much of a cliché and it all feels like the sole purpose of the movie was to appeal to an audience of young females.

The flashbacks were strangely irrelevant and confusing to the story most of the time as were moments where things occurred that seemed comically out of place.

While it is certainly interesting to see Ally and Jackson going in different trajectories with their lives, the direction of the plot is quite predictable and underwhelming.

Just a waste of time.

The only thing which I can say I didn't like about this movie, although "didn't like" is quite an exaggeration, is the fact that is has a very slow pace.

The story is not new - of course - and prequel knowledge aside, is predictable and whilst Cooper gives a solid turn, his endless mumbling and almost one tone character does become a bit of drag and in turn impacts the emotional resonance which doesn't always land.

The best thing about going to a movie that somebody has reimagined is that you know the ending so you fall asleep first and you still know how the movie ends thank you for giving me a warm place to sleep.

Very boring and very slow, I am surprised that it got a high rate Not worst it

Unfortunately, I grew a little bored of the movie & ended right before it finished.

Dull film with flimsy, shallow story and characters .

I like Bradley Cooper a lot, but his movie was so cliché and predictable.

Confusing .

It is so engaging and beautiful.

Total waste of time.

The movie comes across somewhat disjointed, with several scenes seemingly just jumping out at the audience without any mental transition or understanding of the thoughts and thinking of the characters as to how the following scene came to be.
