Obviously, a soundtrack plays a critical role in musicals, which rely on the movie’s musical numbers to further immerse us in the onscreen world. A musical’s soundtrack has the potential to dominate both the film and music industry.

Bradley Cooper Really, Really Loves Dogs In ‘A Star Is Born’ Warner Bros. Pictures The increasingly vicious online battle between Venom and Lady Gaga stans notwithstanding, A Star Is Born looks like a truly wonderful film. After all, almost all of the reviews of the Bradley Cooper-directed drama are positive, and the music sounds wonderful. Also, Cooper and Gaga’s characters, Jackson Maine and Ally, get a dog together and he is a very cute and fluffy puppy.
