ASIB things that bothered you?

I wish the film had a bit more diversity, knowing what Gaga stands for and all. I know this is a controversial topic but it didn’t feel like David Chapelle's character or the drag queens contributed much to the story. It literally felt like they were added in just so the film can barely pass as being not all white and cis. They felt like token characters to me. The fact that they advertised David Chapelle’s character a lot in the trailers made it seem he would have a more pivotal role but I just didn’t get that character development I wanted from his character. :oops:

 

A messy blend of logic and sass

I found the "argument in the bathtub" scene a tad under the rest of the movie in term of acting. That's the only small downside I see. :)

I feel like they say all the time Ally is super famous but it never really feels like that, it feels like she posted a video on YouTube, her video got some views, a week later she dropped an album and then next week got a Grammy

Ally's Grammys dress :green: .

Also the lighting of the Shallow performance. When we first see her performing it, it is pretty dark - both in the audience and on stage. But when you see these old guys watching a video of it, it looks like the middle of the day :poot:

And the thing that bothered me the most was the montage where they go touring felt a bit off in the edit when it transitions between songs then suddenly ends

I found the touring montage was one of the things that benefited the most from the ASIB: Encore edit. It felt much better paced and like a better representation of how much time was supposed to be passing

do we know how long the time period was? I was guessing a year but I don't really know. I think they used the dog getting bigger as one of the visuals to show the passage of time

The movie time skips, it’s not really a week. It’s more like months. It’s probably a year to a year and a half by the end of the film.  The movie is shown in an unconventional way almost of story telling, almost like every scene is a specific memory ally remembers. It’s more of a memory-scrapbook collage of scenes in its storytelling rather than a conventional linear third person point of view.

I know it's several months, my point is that Ally's fame feels very sudden and meteoric, also at the same time it feels like she is not famous at all cause she never meets a fan, or goes to an interview, we don't know how much she sold, we know that she went viral and won a Grammy, das it.

that there's no interview scene / interaction with fans / scene where she's producing an instrumental with some cameos of her producers

Wow, I never thought about this. Considering this is about a rise to stardom, I'd love to see what it's like behind the scenes before and after an artist's first big interview and the first time they can't  leave their hotel because fans are surrounding it lol

I thought that was a good thing though. Even though the movie is called A Star is Born and is about the rise of a star, I liked how the focus was on the relationship and not the fame and everything else that makes a star because she wasn't truly a star until the song at the end. Not only that but it would have taken away the magic of fame and becoming a star if we saw all the tedious behind the scenes stuff. I feel that it would have been irrelevant to the story overall.

“Why Did You Do That?” Should have never been part of the movie. What a horrible song.

This is it. I’ve always felt that this was very intentional. When you’re in love/experiencing the heights and depths of a relationship, time feels secondary. We have NO real concept of how much time elapsed between them meeting and the ending, but it doesn’t matter — just their love does.

I’ve always disliked Ally’s character. I felt she was unreasonable a lot of the time (e.g. making fun of Jack’s father’s alcoholism and death but then getting offended that he called her ugly in the bathtub scene — and then not apologising after Jack apologises). Not really a fault of the movie as good characters have flaws but I don’t really see anyone express this opinion. :selena:

I also thought Dave’s part leaned on the ‘magical negro’ trope a tad too much but any character outside of Ally and Jack were so inconsequential that the same thing could be said about any side characters.
