A Star is Born and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

View Chris Kavan's Profile

Now that we've officially fallen back, my internal clock is messed up and I keep waking up to early and I have to drive home in the dark every night... and it seems the ratings board must be out of sorts as well, because this is a dull update. I mean, sure, I get to see the odd pairing of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in an update of a classic story about fame, and the price you pay. But, aside from that, it's snake eyes this week so I guess you'll just have to bear with me in this small update and we'll all have to hope for some more exciting updates in the weeks ahead.

So, if you didn't figure it out from my obviously spectacular description that our one ratings bonanza belongs to A Star is Born, which is a remake of a remake of a remake - the original 1937 version starred Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, the 1954 version gave us Judy Garland and James Mason while the most well-known version in 1976 starred Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. The plot remains basically the same, a young and up-and-coming actress/singer finds herself under the tutelage of an established, older actor - and of course, they fall madly in love, but even as her star rises, he faces a downward spiral of age and alcoholism. It is a story about fame - on both ends of the spectrum, those who achieve it and those who find it fading, and how to deal with it. Cooper and Gaga are an... interesting choice for sure. Cooper is doing double duty as not just the lead, but as the director and if he hand-picked Ms. Gaga (or Stefani Germanotta), he must have seen something. If they can find that spark, this could certainly appeal to audiences. We'll see in 2018 - this one is rated R for language throughout, some sexuality/nudity and substance abuse.

Hope you got your fill, because that's all you get this time around, but there are a few more movies below to check out, if you're so inclined.
