A Star is Born was one leading star short of being great

I admit, watching A Star is Born roughly 8 months after its initial release, after hearing people rave about it, after the hit song Shallow has reached peaked “overplayed” status on the radio and duly left our airwaves, might or might not have impacted how I felt about this film.

So overall I thought the movie was…..meh. The thing is, this film had all the makings of an above average film. Maybe not deserving of the hype it got but definitely should make me feel more than what I ended up feeling. The writing was pretty good, if not…
