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.

Yes, there are parts that tend to get boring.

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.


Fairly enjoyable but quite the formulaic romance .


It will be a waste of time.

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

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.

But this was way too long and way too Boring.

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.

Disjointed, uber cliche, bad acting.

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

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

The rest of the movie was pretty damn boring.

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.

The songs are beautiful, but the movie is slow and boring.

If these were 2 random actors..this was even a more boring movie.

Boring as hell .

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.

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

Boring and cheap .

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

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

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

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

A Star is Definitely Bored .

Slow Screenplay might bore certain viewers.

It is cliche or not.

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.

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

A Snore Is Born .

boring, predictable, lacks content.

Wow, I mean BORING!

Skipped a lot of parts, except for the singing..just 1 word BORING.

Absolutely breathtaking.


Over-long and very boring

Then it unfortunately becomes quite average and even a bit boring.

For me the movie was absolutely mind blowing you could feel the emotions through the characters throughout the movie.

Dont mind the romantic cliche Story.

It left me bored to tears.

There's no plot.

The boring movie, one can name it

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.

Very enjoyable.

A very boring film except a song Shallow .

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

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

BORING story, TEDIOUS music .

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

I enjoyed it basically because I like Bradley Cooper .

The movie was just too slow for my taste.

The story was rather disjointed too.

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

Thought I'd come back and give it a second watch having seen Charlotte Awbery's stunning cover of Shadow today.

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.

What a waste of time and my money!

So boring, soooo predictable.

Waste of Time.

Enjoyable .

Exaggerated and boring...

Started off strong-ended boring .

Terrible movie, no plot, no coherence.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Don't waste your 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.

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

That's just not my taste, and it made me pretty bored at times, even wishing that it would end.

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

Confusing .

A cliché is born .

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

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

Gaga is quite breathtaking in certain scenes leaving a tear in my eye in one scene in particular and is just a very natural and talented actor.

It will bore you to tears .

One cliche after another, average songs, unlikeable characters.

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

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

waste of my time .

Very very corny and tedious .


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

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

Boring, uneventful vanity project .

I got a bit bored by the singing all the time.

Amusing and breathtaking .

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

Boring .

I have to say, Bradly is awesome and his singing is great but the storyline is so basic, predictable and boring that I couldn't help feeling disappointed thought the film.

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

A Cliche Is Reborn .

Entertaining yet boring, not Oscar material at all.

So boring.

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

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

Boring and over actuation of Lady gaga .

It's repetitive and very, very predictable.

The film is a little slow and understated.

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

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

Predictible, Cliché, and Redundant .


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.

Good acting, but so boring .

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.

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.

Over-long and very boring .

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

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

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

Slow start, strong finish .

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

So boring .

The plot is pretty basic, predictable and boring.

Dull and uninspired.

The storyline is a little slow at times.

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.

However movie moved too slow for my taste.

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

I highly recommend seeing this entertaining love story.

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

This movie is a waste of time.

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

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.

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

The movie is too long...

From there on, the ending becomes predictable.

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.

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.

A self-indulgent piece of Hollywood trash.

I disagree that it was entirely predictable.

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

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

Amazing, breathtaking music and vocals.

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

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


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.

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

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.

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

Even singing was boring.

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

Entertaining .

Don't waste your time

The plot is too predictable and falls very flat!


"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.

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

Boring .

Waste of time.

It's definitely a slow burner.

Boring af, she was the best thing in it.

TLDR: Slow-paced, predictable movie.

A Star is Boring.

Way too long, it would have been better if it was an hour shorter.

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.

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

The very problem is the extremely boring plot.

Boring and predictable...

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

So boring.

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

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

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

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

Cheesy, banal suckage.

I think after that it dragged on.


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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Very boring and very slow .

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

It is contrived, pretentious and asinine all in one.

Just a waste of time.

Uninteresting in all aspects .

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

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.

Predictable, boring, flat.

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

It is so engaging and beautiful.

Boring & predictable.

His character was to have spent too many years of concerts, managers, self-indulgent behavior, just very tired of being on the road for decades and life on the road was to have made him very cynical and the monotony was to have taken its toll on him vocally and physically.

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

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

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).

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.

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

What a disappointment, don't waste your money.

soooo boring.

I found this movie to be quite enjoyable.

Cliche .

The movie was so slow in moving the story forward.

It's a boring film.

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

Boring, Typical, Repetitive , Overrated, predictive .

Like someone wrote, a star is Bored.

A Star is Bored .

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

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.


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

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

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.

The worst movie u can imagine .

Predictable and meh.

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.

So predictable & so overrated .

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

A cliche from start to end.

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

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.

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.


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

Boring and Overrated.


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

The storyline is dull.

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

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

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

after the wedding, the movie becomes draggy and boring .

Waste of time .

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.


Overly long & meaningless,quite pointless.

The rest is dull and not that much more.

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

Such a waste of time!

Unwatchable for a second time.

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.

Overall it is worth watching.

Then the second half dragged a bit.

the movie is watchable if you are really bored.

Clichè-ridden, pointless remake of a remake of a remake .

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

Nothing special, very boring.

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

Either way it's pretty entertaining.

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.

Long and tedious.

A pointless (spoiler) tragedy .

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.

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

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

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

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

It was so pointless, fast, and unreasonable.

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

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

but for someone who likes drama it was enjoyable

Dull .

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

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

Two hours of dreary mumbling .

Sad, empty, dreary, mumble, swearing.

Possibly the worst movie of 2018.

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

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

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

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

Too long and slow .

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

Waste of time, don't watch it.

The movie is honestly really boring/slow/predictable.

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

One of the most boring movies I've watched.

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.

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!

No plot .

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

The movie is ordinary, pedestrian, and just boring.

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

its too long and very boring.

The plot was also somewhat predictable.

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

Dull film with flimsy, shallow story and characters .

I found this to be very boring, I definitely prefer Glitter.

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

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.

It may be a bit of a typical story but the end result is engaging, entertaining and heartbreaking.

Overrated, boring, nothing special .

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

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

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

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

It is unpredictable and magnificent.

Don't waste your time.

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.

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

One of the worst movies I have ever seen.

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

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

In my opinion, the film is brilliant and absorbing.

Melodramatic waste of time .

Most Boring crappiest movie I'vee er seen.

Worth watching?

Slow moving .. lost interest .

This is boring .

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

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.

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.

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

Zzzzz .

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.

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

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.

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

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...

Good movie but slow paced .

Far too long .

A total waste of time .

Extremely disjointed storytelling with a very poor flow to it.

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

So overall, it's not a suuuper great or thrilling movie but it's definitely enjoyable, engaging and rememberable.

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

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

One of the worst movie from 2018.

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

So boring.

A beautiful love story that turns out a bit predictable and slow in some areas.

An enjoyable movie .

It was a complete waste of time watching this movie.

Dull, slow, confusing, depressing.

So completely credible - the soundtrack is still a fave and I cry every time I listen to it - so evocative.

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.

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 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.

The story is very shallow, the conversations are boring, there is no useful message of the movie.

worst movie .

the film is very engaging.

I got bored and had to fast forward.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

This movie is overhyped, very predictable plot and nothing too special...

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

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.

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

Slow at times.

Music is beautiful and mesmerising but to some extent slow screenplay and halfhearted attempt from the co characters are the weak points of the movie.

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

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.

It's a boring, cheesy movie.

Overhyped and zzzzz movie .

Long and boring .

If anything it makes them even duller.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

No storyline at all.

The story was cliche and uninteresting.

I was bored and thought I'd give it a chance.

Both pointless tragedy and old, depressed rock star.

Boring and insipid .

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

The film is interesting an explores a lot of intriguing themes such as fame, love, addiction and psychological issues.


The story line is terribly cliche.

Don't waste your time to watch this movie.

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

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

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

Hugely disappointed and bored.

Snooze fest

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

It's like a good cognac; you have to drink it slow to stay in the feeling.

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.

This movie is one of the worst movies I've ever seen I wish I was warned before I watched it.

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

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.

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

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

But the ending of the movie is just so predictable.

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

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

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

Very boring and shallow movie .

I would've called it too repetitive if it were not for Lady Gaga, a real star, and her touching music.

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

Total waste of time.

It's so boring and soooo predictable.

So bored is not funny.

Great acting but ultimately plot is just 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...

What a dull, boring movie this is.

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.

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

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....

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).

Awful ,don't waste your time.

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.

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

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

It is a super boring and overhyped movie.

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

But above all that, this movie is BORING!

This was a very long, boring film.

A worst movie for Oscar.

It dragged, and felt like a Gaga documentary.

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.

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

Incredibly boring .

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

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

The movie was beyond boring and pretty much predictable.

then, it became draggy and boring .

It's pretty boring and way too long!


I Enjoyed It .

Stunning performances .

The thing is that the movie was kind of boring.

Great but too slow .

Boring .

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

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 took slow burn to a new level.

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.

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.

It was very slow with scenes that were pointless.

I found this a great movie to fall asleep to.

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.

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.

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

What a bore.


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

Fair and entertaining .

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

Pathetic trite boring.

Well worth watching and of course the soundtrack is amazing.

Alhough it is boring from time to time, Bradley and Lady play it well.

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

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.

Compelling acting and dynamic soundtrack .

Worst movie .

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.

No plot; just a montage of concert scenes, make out scenes, and conversation.

The worst movie i've ever seen.

Was so bored by this movie.

Cliche, bad acting, enjoyed the music .

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.

Definitely worth watching!!!!

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

It ran a bit long but was touching and entertaining.

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.

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

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

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

The dialogue was pointless and banal.

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

It has an uneventful storyline with a horrendous soundtrack.

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

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.

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

Acting was fine but was so bored.

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

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.

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.

Great, heartwarming movie with a non-cliche storyline .

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

Boring, awful script, terrible acting.

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

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

He just seems to be a self-indulgent and very narcissistic man.

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.

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