Movie Guide – October
It’s a new month, which means there are tons of new movies coming out and the month October is all about horror. There’s no better way to get into the Halloween spirit than a couple hours of haunted hotels and amusement park massacres.
1. A Star is Born (2018)
The 2018 adaptation of “A Star is Born” is one of the must-see movies of the year. The movie directed by four-time Oscar nominee, Bradley Cooper is the third remake of the original film from 1937 and stars none other than Oscar-winning artist, Lady Gaga and Cooper himself. The story centers around washed-up country-star Jack (Bradley Cooper), who discovers the incredible hidden talent of Ally (Lady Gaga). The two start a heated love-affair as Jack tries to turn Ally into a star, but when Ally starts to outshine him he struggles with being in her shadow. One incredible detail of the movie is that every single song was recorded live, giving it an extra raw edge.
