This week on HBO Max Movie Club, host Matt Rogers invites guest Brendan Scannell (Bonding) to reminisce on 2018's 'A Star Is Born' frenzy and the chokehold Bradley Cooper's remake had on the cultural zeitgeist. From a debate on where exactly the film takes place to a recount of the film's impact on their respective 'Spotify Wrapped' playlists, it's clear this most recent version of A Star Is Born left its mark. The pair also discuss the intense emotions they felt immediately after their initial viewing (the first of Matt's four in-theater screenings opening weekend), the film's unrealistic portrayal of drag queens, and much more.

You can watch A Star is Born (2018) on HBO Max until 12/31/21 and A Star is Born (1954) on HBO Max until 3/31/22
