This is a terrible movie, yet there were moments in it when Tom Hardy made me forget how utterly awful it is.
Overall, I liked this movie. Some random thoughts:
I quite like the first half, even though at times it was so sweet and cute that it was sickening. The second half feels disjointed and dragged at times. The film is WAY too long at 2 hours and 13 minutes.
I had zero sympathy for Jackson (Bradley Cooper), so the end of the film fell completely flat for me.
The pop songs which Ally (Lady Gaga) sings when she gets famous…
This is one of the four films I list as my favorites on my profile.Apart from a slightly questionable performance by Brad Pitt, this film is perfect in my opinion.
The opening credits set the tone perfectly with some extremely disturbing images set to a remix of the song Closer by Nine Inch Nails. From then on the film plunges the audience into a world of darkness and absolute depravity. The final scene is simply unforgettable.
“What’s in the box?”
This film is absolute insanity from beginning to end and I loved it! I had a smile on my face the whole time and I actually giggled out loud a few times at how over the top it was.
The choreography of the fight sequences is astonishing. Instead of going for a ballet-like gracefulness like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, this film just goes for pure brutality. The film is extremely violent and I can see some people being turned off…
