Hollywood is no stranger to remakes, and having A Star is Born remade every 30-or-so years feels like a comforting constant. The latest version offers a new spin to a classic story that has been told and re-told since the 1937 original. The 1954 musical remake starring Judy Garland and the 1976 rock-tinged retelling starring Barbra Streisand have both carved out their own corner in our pop culture memories. And with Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper and pop diva Lady Gaga headlining the newest version, we could have another classic on our hands.

The festival’s co-founder had an hour with Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle co-star Bradley Cooper but admitted he was outsourcing the questions to friends and family who could text him what they wanted to ask.
The result, to start, were some awkward pregnant pauses – but it ultimately led to Cooper filling in the silence with amusing anecdotes about his experiences with the legendary performer.

Today brings the highly anticipated sequel series Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later to Netflix. It fulfills the promise from the end of the original movie that debuted in 2001 that the counselors of Camp Firewood would reunite in 10 years to see what their lives had become. The whole star-studded gang is coming back, except for one person, but that absence comes with a hilarious explanation that is perfect for Wet Hot American Summer.

But since Michael Showalter and David Wain had already come up with a storyline for his character that they just couldn’t abandon, they did the next best thing: replaced Bradley Cooper with Adam Scott. How will this be addressed on the show? Since this is Wet Hot American Summer, the answer is ridiculously and hilariously.

Whether during an extended gag, a moment of backstory, or a sincere heart-to-heart, writer-director James Gunn is clearly more invested in character than the sequel’s simple doomsday plot. There’s a looseness, almost a shagginess, to the Marvel sequel that allows the characters to shine brightest in some eye-popping environments.
