A Star is Born 4k UHD
« on: February 20, 2019, 05:50:22 AM »
Picture - 8.75
Sound - 10
Movie - 10

This is my pick for Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress....just superb chemistry and outstanding acting.
Great great remake!

Picture was a mixed bag.....some outstanding shots...with insane depth and color/blacks....then some interior shots had raised blacks....but overall a nice picture

Sound...here is the another great character in this flic.....crank this one up!  awesome soundtrack just is bliss on a capable system

Blind buy approved

How could a movie possibly go wrong with Bradley Cooper in it?  :-*

Seriously though, I thought his acting was superb and was quite surprised by how well he could sing.
I really enjoyed Lady Gaga with her natural hair color too, made her character very believable. I've seen all three "A Star is Born" movies, have to say that Bab's is still my favorite female lead, but Bradley beats Kristofferson and Mason by a mile.

Sam Elliott was a nice surprise too, wasn't too much of a reach to imagine him and Cooper as siblings.

Highly recommend this movie, just bring a lot of tissues. ;)

Have not seen this one, but I did see Green Book, which did win. Good movie.

LOVE the Andrew "Dice" Clay appearance!

I am looking forward to seeing this one. Heard a lot of good things. Granted, it is the third remake for this movie but still, worth watching. :)

I think it's the best one yet. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga do an outstanding job.

Of all the movies that received an Oscar nod, this is the only one that my wife said she wanted to watch. I am more interested in seeing Green Book. 

She hasn't mentioned it lately but I bet as soon as I walk in with Green Book on Blu-ray, she'll remember. :)

It's a decent movie, but I didn't think it was "Best Picture" material. Gaga did a fantastic job though.

Green Book was outstanding too. I watched it last Sat. night, and I could watch it again anytime !

I thought that deserved Best Picture (of the movies I've seen). "Stan and Ollie" just arrived, and someone who I trust said it was one of his favorite movies from last year (along with Green Book), so I'm looking forward to watching it. Unfortunately, it's #3 in the review queue...Aquaman is first, Bumblebee second, then Stan and Ollie. The first two are in 4K, the last is regular old Blu-ray (not available in 4k).

Sounds like you have your priorities in order.
