      Cool Dusty. I have a wonderful aunt who loves the Beatles and I'm dying to take her. I look forward to your critique.

              Re: Across The Universe

              The first time I saw it I was very disappointed because I thought it could be so much more than it is. The trailer (per usual) shows nearly all of the most imaginative, exciting footage - unfortunately, the trailer is edited far better than the actual film is. I especially hated the first few minutes of the film (the "waves" over Helter Skelter) and the entire "Mr. Kite" scene.
              But the film kept popping into my mind, so I decided to give it a second chance. I went back and, knowing what to expect of it, enjoyed it much more for what it is the second time.

                You have an aunt who likes the Beatles? You are so lucky! My aunt is only into Lawrence Welk...

                I am doubtful that they'll be making any movies about him any time soon!

                  Across the Universe, the new movie musical by Julie Taymor which features the music of The Beatles, is the Spruce Goose of Musicals. It was built with nothing but the most grandiose of ideals but only briefly took flight.

                    Yeah, I have a quite a few really cool relatives. Not too many nut cases, some annoying but none destructive. Guess I'm blessed there.

                    Thanks Norm,

                    I'll run it by my aunt and if she really wants to go I'll take her. She's buying the popcorn though!

                      That's usually what I keep hearing. I saw the trailer and was actually disgusted. It just looked like a complete misinterpretation of the Beatles catalog. With a washed-out, bland soundtrack full of pathetic covers.

                      John and George are not looking kindly on this from wherever they are. You know, George being into the Krishna. They're probably both in heaven, I guess. Depends...

                        So where is the REAL Paul, in Hell? Just Kidding; just felt that I should bring that up.

                          Well, in my own opinion, I thought that it was awesome!

                          I think the scene with Eddie Izzard was the best part of the whole movie... I would easily see the movie again simply for that scene

                          So not only did I love the movie, Jude was freakin hot!

                          This move is definitely not for everybody by any means. Some love it, and some hate it.

                          I loved it

                            I really want to see the movie--what's it rated? My 12 year old is interested.

                              PG-13... not very much language, but for some reason, there is quite a bit of nudity. Don't get me wrong, its not a porno, but it just surprised me for being a PG-13 rated movie.

                              This is my favorite part...

                                Unfortunately, not opened here yet... we're not getting it until October 5, apparently.

                                However, I have listened to the soundtrack. I'm not caring for some of the tracks -- I guess I'm more enjoying the ones that stay a little more faithful to the original. Believe me -- I'm not one that says that a cover needs to stay faithful (I loved Moulin Rouge). I just don't care for the ones that went to far from the original (vocals, I think, is causing it). They may grow on me a bit more once I see the film and can put them into context.

And I found it intriguing that you could pretty much replace the word vietnam with iraq and get the same meaning out of the story.

                                    I saw it at Tustin Marketplace last night and it was in a small theater which I thought was weird isn't it a new release? Hardly anyone was there, did spot Fishbulb and Dusty there though haha what a coincidence.
                                    It was small because it was an Independent film which usually doesn't bring in as many people as a blockbuster would.

                                      I thought it started out kinda sketchy but picked up around the "I've Just Seen a Face" number. Overall I liked it but it's probably not for everyone.
