Highly Suspect Reviews: A Star is Born

I don’t remember anyone putting this fourth version of “A Star is Born” on their must-see anticipated lists, but now that it’s out, everyone is going back to see it again and again. Which shouldn’t be a surprise, really. There’s something about this story of the experienced older musician taking the young ingenue under his belt until she eclipses him that seems to resonate. All three of the previous films of the story have been major hits and this new one directed, co-written, produced, and starring Bradley Cooper and co-starring Lady Gaga, is tracking to be a bit hit with audiences and award ceremonies as well. But what did we think? Let’s listen to Chris interrogate Beau and Frank on the subject, shall we?

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
