Schmaltzy, hysterical, predictable and completely devoid of soul. Lady Gaga should stick to bog-standard house/pop abominations like that Pokerface trash that no one would ever want to listen to ever again. The "songs" in the film are overblown wank, just like Gaga's face. Total shit. Literally anything is better than this.
If I could be bothered hating celebrities I'd hate Lady Gaga. Had a few pop hits and that should've been the end of it. Modern media however if you get a #1 song they'll just push you for the next decade. Now she might win a ******* Oscar to go with the Golden Globe she won for remembering her lines in American Horror Story. Some campaigners decided she's Madonna 2.0 and now we're stuck with her on the A-list forever. The 21st century wasn't supposed to be like this.

Strong, one of the best of the year IMO. Her pop-songs in the film were trash (but i think that was the point as it drove her commercialisation plot) but the ones with Bradley were good and the stroy was a classic (hence the remake) and still did well. To each their own tho.

Holmes & Watson.....embarrassingly bad.

Few decent cast members just given absolute shite. Coogan and Brydon too just utterly wasted.

Wouldn't even pass for a shit 'Thank God You're Here' sketch.

Minus gagillion/10.

I think that's a bit harsh.

I have a strong dislike for Lady Gaga; both her music and her public image.

I also don't care much for Bradley Cooper, even if he can act.

But ASIB was unquestionably a well made film. Country and pop music might not be your thing, likewise romance, but the acting and cinematography were top notch.

I think you're letting your personal feelings get in the way if you can't even acknowledge that.

Roma: God this movie was a hard slog. I can understand why the hardcore serious movie fan would go in for this. In terms of the cinematography, the edits and the constant tension in the film, its a very nice piece of work. But this isn't a short film in a gallery, highlighting a very niche time and place... its entertainment. And on the front of script, character development and pacing, this film has missed entirely. The only character I felt that had any depth or growth was the Grandma, who had about 3 lines. Central character had nearly no growth or arc, being a nearly identical character at the end despite all the events of the film.

To me, it feels like the kind of thing that is in Oscar conversations, simply because the right people have said its good. I found it a struggle, but didn't get the rewarding post-watch thinking payoff that quality challenging films deliver.

6/10

How To Train Your Dragon 3 - hits a lot of the same beats as the 2nd movie. Visually stunning although the score is not quite as good as the previous two entries. Completes the series well, but light on action. 6.5/10

Chael Sonnen: Moral Champion
A solid villain definitely helped but I also found Tom Holland to be the best Spider-Man yet. Actually looking and acting like a kid helped and the guy has strong comedic timing with enough talent to sell the drama. Maguire had two good films and Garfield one, let's see how Holland goes in the sequel.
Liked both of Garfield's films.

Holland is good but there's very little drama to actually sell. The scene in the car with Keaton is great but that's about it. The rest is very light and laughy.

Thanks for the free evaluation.

The truth is you can't separate the movie from the music and the music was absolutely horrendous- overproduced cornball crap, precision engineered for the lowest common denominator. And Gaga's stroke-inducing histrionics, my god. Utterly unbearable.

If you want to see a genuinely moving love story that doesn't rely on tired, cheesy clichés we've all seen a billion times before, check out "Rock N Roll High School" featuring four genuinely talented artists called The Ramones.

And FWIW Country is definitely my thing, pop music too. Love all of it.

Vice: if r/politics watched the big short and tried to make a film on Dick Cheney

McKay turns up the volume on the b-roll footage, narration, editing and meta narrative and proceeds to **** up the film in the process. Excellent performances from the whole cast but the film felt directionless, tactless and limp.

The Informant! - finally got around to watching this. Solid film about the true story of Mark Whitacre and his unnervingly stupid business activities and being the highest level corporate whistle blower in the mid nineties. Damon was good as the goofy lead and surrounded by a pretty good supporting cast.

Are you saying all of the music was over produced? Cause (and I’m no music producer) the Cooper and Cooper/Gaga songs certainly don’t feel like there was a tonne of production behind them. Coopers performance in the drag bar (as well as Gaga’s to that end) are about as raw as you can get.

Prince's best off album "The Hits" from 1993 was 3 cds worth of music numbering 36 individual songs for which Prince was the sole artist/composer/producer credited on 32 of the songs (four other people received writing and production credits). Prince used a number of different engineers.

By contrast, here's the production list for ASIB's musical soundtrack:
  • Paul Blair – composer, producer
  • Bobby Campbell – executive producer, producer
  • Dave Cobb – producer
  • Lisa Einhorn-Gilder – production coordination
  • Bradley Cooper – composer, primary artist, producer
  • Bill Gerber – executive producer
  • Ashley Gutierrez – executive assistant
  • Natalie Hemby – composer
  • Darren Higman – executive producer
  • Jason Isbell – composer
  • Gena Johnson – engineer
  • Julianne Jordan – music supervisor
  • Paul Kennerley – composer
  • Lady Gaga – additional production, composer, horn arrangements, piano, producer, string arrangements, vocal producer
  • Brian Lambert – executive in charge of music
  • Hillary Lindsey – composer
  • Louiguy – composer
  • Lori McKenna – composer
  • Randy Merrill – mastering
  • Joe Nino-Hernes – lacquer cutting
  • Kari Miazek – coordination
  • Nick Monson – additional production, composer, guitar, keyboards, piano, producer, programming, string arrangements, vocals (background)
  • Amanda Narkis – executive in charge of music
  • Lukas Nelson – composer, guitar, guitar (acoustic), guitar (electric), producer
  • Brian Newman – producer, trumpet
  • Mark Nilan Jr. – additional production, composer, horn arrangements, keyboards, piano, producer, programming, string arrangements
  • Julia Michaels – composer, music supervisor
  • Jon Peters – executive producer
  • Édith Piaf – composer
  • Aaron Raitiere – composer
  • Benjamin Rice – engineer, producer, vocal producer, vocals (background)
  • Mark Ronson – composer
  • Anthony Rossomando – composer
  • Anthony Seyler – executive producer
  • Ivy Skoff – coordination, string coordinator
  • Eddie Spear – engineer
  • JoAnn Tominaga – coordination, string contractor
  • Justin Tranter – composer
  • Diane Warren – composer
  • Andrew Wyatt – composer
  • Brian Allen – bass
  • Charlie Bisharat – violin
  • Alberto Bof – keyboards
  • Jacob Braun – celli
  • Brockett Parsons – keyboards
  • Jon Drummond – bass
  • Andrew Duckles – viola
  • Alma Fernandez – viola
  • Daniel Foose – bass
  • Paul Francis – drums
  • Grant Garibyan – violin
  • Gary Grant – trumpet
  • Lila Hood – violin
  • Benjamin Jacobson – violin
  • Chris Johnson – drums
  • Steve Kortyka – saxophone
  • Marisa Kuney – violin
  • Songa Lee – violin
  • Melvin "Maestro" Lightford – keyboards
  • Shigeru Logan – viola
  • Anthony LoGerfo – drums
  • David Low – celli
  • Andy Martin – trombone
  • Corey McCormick – bass
  • Serena McKinney – violin
  • Tato Melgar – percussion
  • Pablo Mendez – violin
  • Leah Metzler – celli
  • Joel Peskin – sax (baritone)

  • Leroy Powell – pedal steel guitar
  • Kate Reddish – viola
  • Tom Scott – contractor, sax (tenor)
  • Jesse Siebenberg – lap steel guitar
  • Alex Smith – piano
  • Tim Stewart – guitar
  • Ricky Tillo – guitar
  • Adrienne Woods – celli
  • Dae Bennett – engineer
If that's not over-cooked then I don't know what is.

Edit: I'd just like to add outside of Prince & The Revolution/ Prince & The NPG tracks on the best of, he played most of the ******* instruments as well.

Genius.

I thought the music was great and the movie really hit the mark.
Not sure what the target demographic was but pretty much everyone I know has seen it and whether they’re young or old are all praising the entire production.

Unclear as to what you’re so angry about tho as your review wasn’t really very coherent or cohesive, just lots of bias I think.

You obviously hate Lady Gaga for some reason but that’s just a stage name, an entertainers facade, the person she plays in the film is completely different but you seem to have trouble differentiating between those 3 personalities.

Bradley Cooper was excellent and should give the Oscar a nudge.

Oh and the Ramones do have genuine talent but their music is kinda repetitive and gets boring very fast & they can’t act for shit.

Well that’s probably why the product turned out so good. A lot of professionals making music properly rather than 1 guy with a computer and some turntables.

FWIW I never really enjoyed Prince’s music and would gladly buy the ASIB soundtrack over his Best Of album anyday.

‘When Doves Cry’ was a pretty awesome song though. :thumbsu:

Vice (2018)

Vice offers a detailed overview of Dick Cheney’s elaborate ruse to exploit the country’s highest authority as VP, but undercuts this with crass and often clunky humor that overstates the nature of Cheney’s villainy. I found the film to be gimmicky, and despite Bale's amazing transformation physically and verbally into the man, I felt it was all superficial, and I had no more insight into the kind of man Cheney was, other than what I already knew. For me this was the let down of the film. 5/10
I saw it too but didnt review because I couldnt put my finger on what exactly bugged me about the film but you have said it very well but I rated it a bit higher because I thought some parts were quite clever and newish s so I give em an extra point for trying even if it didnt work that well 6/10

The other thing is I cant watch Steve Carrell as a serious actor. I dont think he has much range especially when you put him next to someone of Bales calibre.

With all due respect if you'd rather a Gaga album over Prince then I don't think you're qualified for a discussion on music.

FWIW I'd happily take 1 guy and 2 turntables over this sentimental chick-flick tripe. Did Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Gillian Welch, Kris Kristofferson or Elvis Presley etc. need 10,000 people to write a three chord country song?

(btw When Doves Cry is killer, but not in the Top 50 Prince songs IMO (will save that for another day though)).

Cheap Thrills

2013 movie where two guys are paid to complete certain dares. As the movie goes on the stakes get higher as the CD as the dares get bigger and grimmer. Excellent, if a bit hard to watch at times.

1- that’s a very very long winded way of not answering the question at all (which was is it all the music of the movie or just some that you think was over produced)
2- comparing the music of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga on a soundtrack for a movie to one of the greatest musical artists of all time would seem a pretty pointless exercise. That’s chalk and oranges

I’m assuming you’re a serious musical afficiando which is great, but using that as a basis as to whether you enjoyed a movie about singer/songwriters seems like you had your mind made up before you bought the ticket.

I'm at work and I missed the nuance in your question, but to say I didn't answer it at all is bullshit- you clearly don't end up with 10,000 credits on a dozen songs and not have the majority of them "overproduced". If there were any songs that weren't over-produced, I'll happily concede that I missed them while playing Farmville on my phone. Sorry. The ones I do recall- including the lead single- are completely overcooked.

I agree- the point I was addressing was only the "over-production" of the music.

Another psychology graduate! Excellent work.

How about play the ball not the man? I stated I can't separate the music from a musical. And a musical with shit music is (IMO) a shit film.

Further to this I found the story predictable, melodramatic, and corny.

Anyway enough on this film now. I'd rather talk about decent films that I actually bothered paying attention to, like The Predator or Ralph Breaks The Internet :D

With all due respect if you'd rather a Gaga album over Prince then I don't think you're qualified for a discussion on music.
It’s not a Gaga album tho, this is why I think you’re biased and therefore incapable on a balanced discussion here. :)
FWIW I'd happily take 1 guy and 2 turntables over this sentimental chick-flick tripe. Did Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Gillian Welch, Kris Kristofferson or Elvis Presley etc. need 10,000 people to write a three chord country song?
You seem to be forgetting they are single artists doing there own thing the way they want with little or no outside input.

A movie is a much bigger undertaking than a record and requires much more work.
You’re also forgetting that besides just a few 3 chord songs a film also requires a score.

It could just be a simple case of feelings, emotions & sentimentality being your problem here tho as you don’t at all seem in touch with those and makes me question first; if you’ve even seen the movie at all, & second; why would you even go to it if you hate this kind of premise and one of the main stars? :think:

Truthfully I think it’s just straight bias that is forming your opinion.
(btw When Doves Cry is killer, but not in the Top 50 Prince songs IMO (will save that for another day though)).
And this, how many years did it take for Prince to assemble his greatest hits album and how many did it take for the ASIB soundtrack?
