The cast list was released last fall for the upcoming Netflix adaptation of the young adult fantasy series Shadow and Bone. The casting revealed Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov, and Ben Barnes as her manipulative antagonist and love interest General Kirigan, also known as the Darkling. Alina is meant to be around seventeen, while Ben Barnes is 38.

I have done my best to keep this review spoiler-free but will tag any potential spoilers with **.

I have waited for this film for longer than I meant to. By that, I mean to say that I’ve waited for Lady Gaga to take part in a major film since well, her music video for “Paparazzi” came out over ten years ago (the lady has a flair for the dramatic, it was only a matter of time before she became a quadruple threat). But I did not know that I was waiting for Bradley Cooper to direct and co-star with Lady Gaga in this film. A Star Is Born not only captures our fascination with celebrity, but it gives us an achingly real relationship between two people who find out that sometimes, love just isn’t enough. 

Unless you’ve gotten kicked off your wi-fi one too many times, beaten all your technology into pulp, and then tossed it into Mordor, you’ve probably seen one of the “Ice Bucket Challenge” videos.

For those who don’t know, the Ice Bucket Challenge supports the ALS Association, which is a nonprofit organization devoted to fighting Lou Gehrig’s disease. The premise of the challenge is this: donate money to the ALSA or get a bucket of ice water dumped on your head, and then you challenge 3 more people to do the same. Many celebrities have  taken this to heart, taking the ice bucket challenge as well as donating money to the organization.

So here are my 5 favorites. Some celebrities have gotten quite…creative.

1. Robert Downey, Jr.
