Quite the contrary. Since making landfall at the Toronto International Film Festival, "A Star Is Born" has provoked the kind of mania rarely seen in even the feverish realm of a film festival. It's been hailed as "a transcendent Hollywood movie" (per Variety) and "damned near perfect" (per Rolling Stone).

Yeah, right.  since the last ridiculously over=hyped move.  La-La Land springs to mind.

Plus this is a third remake.

How can you prejudge a movie before you've seen it.

That's like saying a gourmet meal prepared by someone like Paul Bocuse is garbage before you eat it or, a bottle of PENFOLDS Bin 95 Grange Shiraz Vintage 1965 is a bad wine before you take a sip.

Further, just because a movie has been remade multiple times doesn't mean it isn't worth watching again - refer to the list below for examples of movies that were successfully remade several times:

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1991, 2011, 2017)

I AM LEGEND (1964, 1971, 2007)

CARRIE (1976, 2002, 2013)

ANNIE (1982, 1999, 2014)

GODZILLA (1954, 1998, 2014)

SPIDER-MAN (1977, 2002, 2012, 2017)

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS (1923, 1956, 1998)

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE (1938, 1940, 2005)

How does one dye their hair their natural color?

Ask any woman who always dyes her hair to a colour other than her natural hair colour, duh.

Oh, and good luck with that ;)

@Gremlin All five women I asked about this said they don't dye their hair if they want their hair to be its natural color. Duh.
