Heartfelt performances from Lady Gaga and actor/director Bradley Cooper are enough to make Cooper’s directorial debut worthy of an encore. A Star is Born, the third remake of the original 1937 film of the same name, is another successful retelling of an apparently ageless story of fame, music, and love.
Over the course of the last five years, the horror movie genre has been on a tear. From the psychological (The Babadook) to the satirical deconstruction (Happy Death Day) and the thriller (Get Out), we seem to have reached a new golden age for scary movies. Hereditary, the first film by writer-director Ari Aster, only adds to that list.
