Check out the beautiful music video and lyrics for ‘Shallow’ from the ‘A Star Is Born’ soundtrack

A Star Is Born Shallow SAG Screen Actors Guild Awards
WARNER BROS.

Grab a pair of headphones and allow Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper to bless your earholes with “Shallow,” the lead single from their upcoming Oscar contender A Star Is Born, which serves as an incredible display of just how beautifully their vocals pair together.

The song is just one of many that will appear in A Star Is Born, a new take on the tragic love story that follows seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Cooper) as he discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally (Gaga) just as she has decided to give up on her dream of making it big as a singer.

Well, that is until Jackson decides to propel her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career begins to take off, the personal side of their relationship begins to break down as Jackson continues to fight an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.

Look, it was one thing hearing the little snippet included in the trailer for the film. But, now that I’ve heard the entire thing, I’m pretty much convinced that “Shallow” is going to win Best Original Song at the Oscars next year. There’s no way it doesn’t.

Check out the lyrics and music video for “Shallow” from the A Star Is Born soundtrack below. You’re definitely going to have it stuck in your head for the rest of the day, but that’s a good thing.

[Bradley Cooper]
Tell me something, girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there something else you’re searching for?

I’m falling
In all the good times, I find myself longing
For change
And in the bad times, I fear myself

[Lady Gaga]
Tell me something, boy
Aren’t you tired trying to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?

I’m falling
In all the good times, I find myself longing
For change
And in the bad times, I fear myself

I’m off the deep end
Watch as I dive in
I’ll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface
Where they can’t hurt us
We’re far from the shallow now

[Both]
In the sha-ha-sha-hallow
In sha-la-sha-la-shallow
In the sha-ha-sha-hallow
We’re far from the shallow now

[Lady Gaga]
Oh, ha-ah-ah-ah
Haaa-ah-ah-ah, haaawaah, ha-ah-ah-aaah

I’m off the deep end
Watch as I dive in
I’ll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface
Where they can’t hurt us
We’re far from the shallow now

[Both]
In the sha-ha-sha-hallow
In sha-la-sha-la-shallow
In the sha-ha-sha-hallow
We’re far from the shallow now

Max Landis is an abusive piece of shit who deserves to be blacklisted in Hollywood

Published

Max Landis
NICHOLAS HUNT/GETTY IMAGES

In a bombshell exposé published by The Daily Beast this morning, eight women detailed the emotional, physical, and sexual abuse that they suffered at the hands of Bright and Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis, which is not particularly surprising given the fact that we’ve heard about this kind of stuff about Landis before—but no one did anything about it.

Before we go any further, a quick warning: the exposé is disturbing, to say the least, and contains graphic descriptions of the aforementioned abuse. Reader discretion is most definitely advised. 

In one part of the story, an ex-girlfriend and former friend of Landis going by the name of Julie (some of the names used in the story are aliases so as to protect the anonymity of the victims) describes how she “didn’t realize that I had been raped consistently and deliberately by this man for two years until today, when I wrote it down.”

Julie, after detailing some of the emotional abuse Landis inflicted upon her, goes on to say, “He choked me until I passed out and did humiliating, degrading things to me that I still can’t manage to write out on paper.”

Another ex-girlfriend, Kerry, wrote about how Landis “choked me and told me he wanted to kill me. And I would wind up reassuring him that he wasn’t a monster when he felt bad about it. Because I felt bad that he was so sick.”

Ani Baker, who also had a romantic relationship with Landis at one point, described a similar event in which Landis snapped, put his hands around her throat, and got very close to her face, saying, “I will fucking kill you. Do you understand what I’m saying? I will fucking kill you.”

These are just a few of the very harrowing accounts Landis’ victims tell in the exposé and help paint a picture that shows who Landis truly is: a violent sexual abuser. You can read the piece by Daily Beast entertainment reporter by Amy Zimmerman in its entirety here. (Again, please keep in mind that the exposé contains graphic descriptions of abuse and you should only read it at your own discretion.)

Samara Weaving finds herself in a deadly game of hide and seek in the ‘Ready or Not’ trailer

Published

on

Ready or Not
FOX SEARCHLIGHT

The first trailer for Ready or Not reveals the latest offering from Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, two-thirds of the filmmaking collective Radio Silence, which has brought us wonderfully fucked-up genre works like the Rosemary’s Baby riff Devil’s Due and the 10/31/98 segment from the V/H/S anthology.

Ready or Not appears to be equally (if not more) fucked-up than Radio Silence’s previous efforts and follows a young bride named Grace (Samara Weaving) as she joins her new husband’s (Mark O’Brien) rich, eccentric family for some sort of time-honored tradition.

Little does Grace know, though, that this time-honored tradition is about to turn into a lethal game of hide-and-go-seek that, by the looks of the trailer, will have everyone fighting for their survival—not just Grace.

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting some very strong Clue and You’re Next vibes from this trailer and everything about it just looks absolutely phenomenal. Plus, there’s something about a bunch of rich white people killing each other for the hell of it that I find particularly interesting. Consider me sold.

Ready or Not also stars Adam Brody, Henry Czerny, and Andie MacDowell, and will hit theaters on August 23 via Fox Searchlight. Let me know your thoughts on the trailer by sounding off in the comments section below.

The first official image from Steven Spielberg’s ‘West Side Story’ certainly looks, uh, very beige

Published

West Side Story
20TH CENTURY FOX

20th Century Fox debuted a first look image from Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of West Side Story this morning and, uh, it certainly looks very beige. Like, there literally appears to be no other color present in this image other than beige.

I mean, you would think that a Spielberg take (or any take, for that matter) on West Side Story would be colorful and vibrant, but this first look image is pretty damn underwhelming and does nothing but make the movie’s entire aesthetic look lifeless and drab as hell.

Also, perhaps I’m suffering from a case of mistaken memory here, but didn’t Fox originally say this was going to be a more modern, present-day version of West Side Story? Because that certainly doesn’t appear to be the case anymore if it ever was.

Criticisms aside, though, I’m still really looking forward to seeing what Spielberg does here, especially given his passion for the source material and long-standing desire to tackle a musical. Plus, it’s great to see him reunite with his Lincoln screenwriter Tony Kushner and tap a lead as wonderful and charming as Ansel Elgort is (do not fucking @ me, Film Twitter).

Pictured left to right in the first look image above we have Jets members Anybodys (Ezra Menas), Mouthpiece (Ben Cook), Action (Sean Harrison Jones); Jets leader Riff (Mike Faist); Baby John (Patrick Higgins); Tony (Ansel Elgort) and Maria (Rachel Zegler); Maria’s brother and Sharks leader Bernardo (David Alvarez); and Sharks members Quique (Julius Anthony Rubio), Chago (Ricardo Zayas), Chino (Josh Andrés Rivera), Braulio (Sebastian Serra) and Pipo (Carlos Sánchez Falú).

We still have yet to see the rest of the cast, which includes Ariana DeBose as Anita, Brian d’Arcy James as Officer Krupke, Corey Stoll as Lieutenant Schrank, and Rita Moreno, who won an Oscar for her role as Anita in Robert Wise’s 1961 adaptation of West Side Story, as Valentina.

West Side Story will hit theaters on December 18, 2020.
