    A star is born sucked absolutely 0 memorable music and Bradley Cooper spends the entire time doing a Sam Elliott impression.

    He was quoted as saying that Eddie Vedder influenced him. But they're saying that Gaga was a revelation. How is the music?

    ive only seen one of the movies for best picture, Black Panther. Hoping to see Bohemian Rhapsody soon.

    Bale will probably take best actor.

    I spent the 1st 20 minutes watching thinking I hope Bradley Cooper sent Sam Elliott a check since hes basically doing an impression of him then Sam Elliott showed up in the movie and I thought oh I guess he did get a check.

    The music is completely forgettable. She does a really good job with what they gave her but it wasn't much. The shock is his how good Dice is as her .father.

    The movies fundamental flaw is there's no way to get out of the tragic fucked up ending and the way Cooper handles that makes it even worse than the previous versions.

    Save your money and watch the Stresand version.

    I still don't believe that's Bale. Just a shocking transformation. And I was taken aback by Rami Malek's too.

    in several but without writing 10,000 words, I'll start with the most egregious - the whole Live Aid bit in the movie while meticulous in performance, was TWO YEARS before Freddie was diagnosed with AIDS in 1987. He did try a solo record that wasnt successful but the whole begging the band to get back together for Live Aid was 100% horseshit (not to mention that Taylor had 2 solo records and May had one that all came out before Mercury's did. Taylor and May (and Deacon but he was not involved in the movie) came off as stable family guys who werent just as hard partying and debauched as Mercury was

    Oh okay. So the facts are wrong. :up: I figured it was just too gay. I love Queen, don't get me wrong. I never liked watching FM perform very much though. :dontknow:

    If Spike Lee loses, will Reggie Miller show up on stage and do the choke signal?

    One of my favorite parts of the Academy Awards is when the five musical artists perform their nominated songs. But the last couple of years, the performances during the "In Memoriam" segment were simply magnificent.

    Here is Sara Bareilles singing Both Sides Now and Eddie Vedder singing Room at the Top.
