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.

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

Then just disappointed and bored.

The story line is terribly cliche.

The real, raw dialog was enjoyable.

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

One of the most boring movies I've watched.

Don't waste your time.

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

It has an uneventful storyline with a horrendous soundtrack.

Poor film dragged along by a great soundtrack .

Bradley Cooper's sophisticated execution, both in front & behind the camera, Lady Gaga's revelatory rendition that undoubtedly ranks amongst this year's strongest performances, and the electrifying chemistry they share from the instant they are within the same frame results in a romantic drama that's absorbing, entertaining & fulfilling.

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

Great acting but ultimately plot is just too predictable .

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

What a great gripping movie!

Such a waste of time!

Solid movie and well worth watching...

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

but for someone who likes drama it was enjoyable

What an uninspiring amount of drivel.

Pathetic trite boring.

Absolutely breathtaking.

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

Unwatchable for a second time.

Some scenes are touchable and some are terribly boring that I want to stop watching the film.

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.

Perfect blend of classic narrative, non cliche moments and strong dramatic story with great performances.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

Boring & predictable.

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

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

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

While Cooper delivers one of his best acts, Gaga is an absolute revelation, for she dazzles all with a powerfully gripping act that defies all expectations.

I enjoyed it basically because I like Bradley Cooper .

Pointless remake.

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.

This movie is a waste of time.

I found this a great movie to fall asleep to.

It ran a bit long but was touching and entertaining.

Trans Propaganda film .

Definitely worth watching!!!!

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.

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

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.

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.

Ending was very predictable.

The rest of the movie was pretty damn boring.

Worst movie .


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

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

Even the music, the thing this movie is most proud of, wasn't that great, it just felt like boring recycled stuff that gave me nothing new.

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

It is drawn out and self-indulgent, focusing much more on Jack's story than Allie's, which would be much more complex and interesting.

The second half was extremely slow.

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

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

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

The worst movie u can imagine .

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

Waste of time .

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.

Two hours of dreary mumbling .


Overall, it is a good and entertaining movie.

Horible boring slow .

From there on, the ending becomes predictable.


it is boring, slow and all the best scenes are copied from the previous version 2.

It dragged, and felt like a Gaga documentary.


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.

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

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.

I found this movie to be quite enjoyable.

Far too long .

The film is a little slow and understated.

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

Bit of a slow start but as the story unfolds the audience is dragged in.

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

The very problem is the extremely boring plot.

But the ending of the movie is just so 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.

then, it became draggy and boring .

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.

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

The story was cliche and uninteresting.

A Star is Bored .

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

Music is fun and cool until around half of the movie; then it becomes boring since you see whole songs being played.

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

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

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.

Gaga can sing for sure, but still no, boring, boring, boring.

It's a boring, cheesy movie.

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.

Perhaps a small part of the reason classics come along fewer and further between these days relates to dialogue that often feels forced or trite, characters that are pushed outside their elemental spheres by the script.

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

Cliche after cliche .

Just cliche after cliche.

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.

dragged out story line8.1

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

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.

But Gaga came up with a rather bland soundtrack which doesn't do the quality of the movie any justice.

This was a very long, boring film.

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.

Just died of boredom, died.

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.

Fair and entertaining .

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).

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.

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

His portrayal of alcoholism is so gripping that the viewer is immediately placed into a milleu of tragedy and internal turmoil from the first shot, an emotion that is sustained until the final moments of the film.

Disjointed, uber cliche, bad acting.


Then the second half dragged a bit.

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.

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

Well worth watching and of course the soundtrack is amazing.

Overall enjoyable .

This took slow burn to a new level.

Slow at times.

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

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

Sad, empty, dreary, mumble, swearing.

I actually started to fall asleep and the end couldn't come fast enough for me!!!!

The movie was just too slow for my taste.

The story itself is good in some way, but it's still boring.

So boring, soooo predictable.

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.

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

Second part is boring .

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

Entertaining .

So boring.

The skilful editing exquisitely balances elements of drama, romance & music while the soundtrack contributes as much to the story as it is fascinating to listen to separately.

The movie is honestly really boring/slow/predictable.



the movie is watchable if you are really bored.

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

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

Their chemistry is so intense.

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

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

Because of the director's presentation, it's sort of boring.

Yes, there are parts that tend to get boring.

Nothing special, very boring.

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

Awful ,don't waste your time.

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.

No storyline at all.

Boring and contrite and very highly overrated!

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

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

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

Thank God Sam Elliott saved me from taking a two hour nap after I blew $20 to see this borefest.

The movie was beyond boring and pretty much predictable.

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.

A Viewer Is Bored .

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.

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

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

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

The movie turned out to be so horribly boring that the only reason i didn't leave the cinema was my dear wife (who from some weird reason was enjoying it).

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

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

Overhyped and zzzzz movie .

The story was rather disjointed too.

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.

It's a boring film.

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

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

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.

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

It is so engaging and beautiful.

So predictable & so overrated .

So boring I was waiting for this movie to eventually end.

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

A Star is Definitely Bored .

Very confusing.

Worth watching.

Unrealistic, predictable, nothing special about it.

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.

Waste your time somewhere else 😏

Co-written & directed by Bradley Cooper, his first stint behind the screen is better than his entire career in front of it, for his direction exhibits an apt understanding of the mechanics behind translating a tale from script to screen, plus the sincerity & maturity in his work here makes his debut an alluring, refreshing & emotionally engrossing sit.

Finally Bradley Cooper in a movie worth watching.

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.

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.

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

Both pointless tragedy and old, depressed rock star.

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

One of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Boring as hell .

The plot is pretty basic, predictable and boring.

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

Absolutely breathtaking .

Great but too slow .

Some flaws with the overall pacing and passage of time was pretty confusing.

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.

Waste of Time.

A pointless (spoiler) tragedy .

Rockstar cliche meets Mary Sue .

I guess I has to be a thrill for the miss Gaga fans, but as per a movie itself it was the most predictable and boring as it could be.

Boring .

Boring and insipid .

Incredibly boring .

Cooper's character is a boring stiff.

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.

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.

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

I got bored and had to fast forward.

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

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

Boring, Typical, Repetitive , Overrated, predictive .

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

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.

So bored is not funny.

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

Boring predictable and cliché .

A very boring film except a song Shallow .

The rest is dull and not that much more.

Entertaining yet boring, not Oscar material at all.

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.

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

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

The plot was also somewhat predictable.

after all stuff i v watched this year this was so fascinating and really touched my heart .

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

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

Dull and uninspired.

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

Surprisingly Stunning .

My one flaw is that it dragged in the middle a bit and it could have probably been 20 mins shorter.

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.

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

So boring .

At the end, I totally agree with those who say that for some moments it is very boring!!

Wow, I mean BORING!

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


A Snore Is Born .

Zzzzz .

This is boring .

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

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

So boring.

Worth watching.


Some scenes being extremely hard to follow and simply not necessary for the plot.

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.

The storyline is dull.

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

Started off strong-ended boring .

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

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.

In my opinion, the film is brilliant and absorbing.

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

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

Such a predictable movie and horrible script after the first twenty minutes.

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

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

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.

This movie is definitely worth watching on the big screen in cinemas, especially if they have Dolby Atmos.

It's pretty boring and way too long!

Boring movie would have got zero stars if IMDB did not have one star as a minimum rating


Confusing .

What a disappointment, don't waste your money.

Boring, uneventful vanity project .

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.

Was boring at times, disjointed story.

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

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 Star is cliché.

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.


It's repetitive and very, very predictable.

Was so bored by this movie.

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

The story is very weak and predictable.

As the narrative is nothing new, the ending was also very predictable.

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

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz .

The worst movie i've ever seen.

Predictible, Cliché, and Redundant .

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

Coming to the performances, both Bradley Cooper & Lady Gaga deliver magnetic, charismatic & lifelike inputs and their chemistry is intense, instant & invigorating.

Uninteresting in all aspects .

Good movie but slow paced .

One of the worst movie from 2018.

Over-long and very boring

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

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

If anything it makes them even duller.

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

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

Waste of time.

Snooze fest

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

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

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

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.

A worst movie for Oscar.

Melodramatic waste of time .

It is contrived, pretentious and asinine all in one.

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.

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

Overall, a truly enjoyable film.

What a waste of time and my money!

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

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

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).

Very very corny and tedious .

The movie itself wasn't amazing, it was a bit ordinary and predictable, but Lady Gaga was charming and natural in her role it was worth the watch just because of her great acting.

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

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

Cheesy, banal suckage.

A total waste of time .

Boring .


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

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


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

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

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

The movie was so slow in moving the story forward.

Possibly the worst movie of 2018.

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

Overrated, boring, nothing special .

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

The camera work wasn't anything special, the atmosphere was non existent and the acting was forced and sometimes unbearable.

Exaggerated and boring...

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

I completely forgot who they were, becoming completely immersed in their characters.

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

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

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).

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.

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

Boring and cheap .

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

Lady Gaga's vocal talents were wasted on ho-hum songs (with the exception of her rendition of La Vie en Rose - though I could have done without her sliding on her back across the bar...

Borefest .

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

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.

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

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, predictable, lacks content.

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.

The thing is that the movie was kind of boring.

It will be a waste of time.

Very slow and pretty sappy.

The best word to describe this film is self-indulgent.

Amazing, breathtaking music and vocals.

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

Slow moving .. lost interest .

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!

I highly recommend seeing this entertaining love story.

Cliche .

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

The boring movie, one can name it

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

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

Cliche, bad acting, enjoyed the music .

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

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.

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.


It's so boring and soooo predictable.

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.

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.

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

It was so pointless, fast, and unreasonable.

Slow start, strong finish .

Worth watching for the music - and Gaga!

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.

Breathtaking .

Big fans of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper we are but this was slow, uneventful predictable and not even with good costume design and choreography.

It is unpredictable and magnificent.

waste of my time .

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

It was a complete waste of time watching this movie.

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.

I could stand the first 30 minutes but after that the movie became so tiring and dull and cliche.

What a dull, boring movie this is.

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.

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

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.

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

Worth watching?

I don't think Bradley Cooper made this movie just for money, i know he's very passionate about it, and i wish him the best, but right now he's just a mediocre director, and this movie was a boring mess.

Hugely disappointed and bored.

Now..it felt boring?

The singing became tidious and it dragged on and on.

I'll say: it was really boring.

Very enjoyable.

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

Too long and slow .

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

Boring, awful script, terrible acting.

A Star is Boring.

'A Star is Born' tells a story and an entertaining one at that.

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.


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

Dull .

The movie is ordinary, pedestrian, and just boring.

Bradley Cooper's directorial debut is a stunning achievement navigating the tricky genre of musical movies which is so often butchered.

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.

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.

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 story, TEDIOUS music .

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Boring .

Even though the film is a bit cliche, What keeps the film afloat are the performances, Cooper especially.

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

Over-long and very boring .

It was very slow with scenes that were pointless.


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

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.

Like someone wrote, a star is Bored.

The movie was absolutely stunning!

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.


soooo boring.

Don't waste your time.

Dull, slow, confusing, depressing.

There's no plot.

So boring.

Just a waste of time.

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....

Compelling .

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

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

Absolutely Breathtaking .

Pretty Bad movie.. Damn waste of time thou

Waste of time, don't watch it.

A cliche after cliche .

Fairly enjoyable but quite the formulaic romance .

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

Total waste of time.

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

The movie is too long...

It is a super boring and overhyped movie.

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.

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

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

The storyline is a little slow at times.

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.

Acting was fine but was so bored.

after the wedding, the movie becomes draggy and boring .

Very boring and very slow .

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