You guyyyyyyys.

How good is that movie? I went yesterday afternoon and I'm now binge-listening the soundtrack. I didn't actually cry, came close though, but it's the first movie I've seen in a very long time where everyone just sat enthralled, and made no sound. It finished and noone moved, we just all kinda sat there for a moment taking it all in.

SO GOOD. If you haven't been, GO.

(check the trigger warnings first though, just in case xx)

I know what you mean! I did not know how it was going to end beforehand. I admit I had a big cry when Lady Gaga sings the song at the end. So sad.

i haven't seen any of the three prior ones Maree, didn't even know it was a remake until I IMDB'd it after i watched this one!

Crazy relateable with a makeup free Gaga and a flawed hero you can't help but be drawn to anyway!

Yeap the very first film came out 80 years ago! It's always been very well adapted for the age it has been made in which is why it's been so popular each time. I also looooooooove the Streisand/Kristoffsen one, Maree. My mum played that soundtrack a lot! Remember the concert at the end......"watch closely now....are you watching me now?...." Waaaaahhhhhhh!!!!! 

I think I'll wait a little longer to see it so I can have the cinema to myself and bawl my eyes out. I even cried at Dr Who the other night lol.

LOL Soozie - I'll wait for the DVD then I can watch it at home alone!There was that one, The Rose, and Aloha Bobby and Rose that stood out for me. I looked for Aloha Bobby and Rose on DVD but it was never re-released after the original sadly, cos it was  right bottler of a movie -  totally loved everything about it.

Either is fine. Just make sure it is zoned for the right DVD zone if your DVD player isn't universal.

Yep Lisa she literally leaves Gaga at the door - bare faced and simply dressed through most of the movie and very straight up vocals without all the gaga production, character and hype. Bradley Cooper smashes the vocals too.

ive been obsessed with Shallow and I’ll always remember us this way ever since
