    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    There are a lot of holes in this but I still really enjoyed it


    EDIT: I cannot stop thinking about it and I’m thinking of bumping this to 4.5 based on atmosphere alone


    SECOND EDIT: I just remembered the faces of the Tethered simulating the Tilt-A-Whirl and I’ll probably never sleep again

    A Star Is Born

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I was just gonna go with four stars here. But I haven’t been able to go more than 15 minutes without thinking about how devastating the ending is. Sure, it’s hokey and corny, but it’s also thrilling. Stop being so goddamn cynical, everyone, and just enjoy a bombastic, over-the-top love story.

    Also: hoping for A Star Is Born 2; it’s only five minutes long and it’s Ally’s manager taking a supreme beating from Sam Elliott for talking his brother into suicide with one conversation.
