      Thanks Cas, I was hoping this would be great on UHD, was holding back for reviews (on PQ) due to the way it was shot, but glad to read the UHD is worth the extra ££.

      Loved the film and Gaga deserves the Oscar, I thought she was exceptional.
      Keen to watch the 70's version now.

      The soundtrack is great too, Cooper sounds like Neil Diamond on a few tracks, I'm not a massive country music fan by any means, but cant help but listen to this regularly, if they toured, I'd certainly purchase a ticket.
      Really looking forward to hearing the film at home.

      It's out on iTunes in DV and Atmos, I saw it on Saturday. Looked and sounded great (so will be even better on UHD).

      I watched this yesterday on Apple TV 4K with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. It was absolutely breathtaking. The stage footage in particular is phenominal. Definitely one to demo for friends.

      This isn't something I would watch normally but I actually quite enjoyed it. Cooper & Gaga are both very watchable and Cooper obviously has some talent behind the camera too.

      Thanks Cas,

      Definitely not my usual type of film, But as soon as I saw LG starring it peaked my interest.

      I thought she was excellent in AHS, And have been waiting to see more from her.

      Oddly enough I do not go for her music at all, And think I have only seen one of her music videos!

      Ditto. Her normal stuff is pretty average and completely wastes her vocals. Worth an Oscar.

      I think you’re in the wrong forum. Although does AVF have a YA section? ;)

      The 4K Itunes stream quality is brilliant, certainly up there with the best of them so the disc should be even better, not my usual sort of film but really enjoyed it, great acting, easy to watch & some great extras, looked like they had fun making it & really shows in the film. Great review.

      Why?
      I have never seen it yet, but like to read reviews good and bad.
      I hate the song that was in the charts as I thought it was boring (or possibly just over played), but that's not to mean I wont enjoy the film though.

      Having just seen (& heard) the amazing Bohemiam Rhapsody on 4k blu ray which looked and sounded incredible & was a terrific film ... I am hoping this will live up to similar expectations @Casimir Harlow ... thanks for a great review :thumbsup: I am planning to watch A Star Is Born this weekend.

      Because of Amazon's spat with Warner Bros, also not available on Sky for similar reasons.
