Not my kind of musical

9 years, 9 months ago at Feb 25 6:51

I know that the Beatles are loved by many and I do like some of their music but when I heard that Across The Universe was really about telling a story using only Beatles songs I wasn't really interested.
But my sister bought the DVD and some of my friends had really liked it, I said "meh" and watched it.
Now that I've seen it, I really don't know what's so special about it.

A musical of Beatles musix

My friends dragged me into this movie and I admit I've never been much of a Beatles fan though I find myself leaning towards becoming one in the near future because I didn't realize the songs were rather catchy.

The movie itself was an affair of you either loved it or hated it. It can come off as a pretentious art film or something of a work of art. To me it was an okay movie, the ... read more

''We're navigators, we're aviators, eatin' taters, masturbatin' alligators, bombardiers, we got no fears, won't shed no tears, we're pushin' the frontiers of transcendental perception.''

The music of the Beatles and the Vietnam War form the backdrop for the romance between an upper-class American girl and a poor Liverpudlian artist.

Description: With vibrant creative élan, director Julie Taymor takes 33 classic songs of the Beatles and uses them as the foundation for this phantasmagoric exploration of young love and youth culture. This "60s musical fantasia" is delivered with freshness and feeling by a cast of relative unknowns who sing with both gusto and grace. Here is a movie that will make you swoon and sense the delirious qualities of personal and social change. In the film, an American girl (Evan Rachel Wood) and a British lad (Jim Sturgess) fall in love amid the upheaval of the 1960s in this musical featuring classic Beatles songs and a mix of live ...

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: April (15 movies items)

"April 23 "Music's the only thing that makes sense anymore, man. Play it loud enough, it keeps the demons at bay." I heard about this movie around the same time I became a fan of The Beatles, I was mildly interested at first, but when I heard one of the covers from it on YouTube, my 12 year old Beatles fanboy self was like "Oh my god, they just ruined a great song! I'm never going to see this movie!!!" Yeah, I was one of those fans back then. Over the years though I put it back on my radar "

Across the Universe

“Who needs a plot when you can arrange 33 songs by the Beatles in random order and have a series of talented performers do them in a bunch of loosely connected music videos revue style? This is very similar to Mamma Mia, a hastily assembled collage of memorable pop tunes lacking a memorable or even serviceable story. There’s also the triteness of Forrest Gump, our small band of youths just so happen to take part in every single major movement and moment of the turbulent 60s.   Across the Universe is only as good as any singular moment since there’s not a clichéd story that Taymor doesn’t use, nor is there a character that exists beyond a mere sketch. Hell, most of these characters feel like they’re named or brought in just to provide an excuse for another song. There’s our lea” read more

"First viewing - Aug. 7th Hey, it's one of the rare musicals I actually enjoyed...no doubt largely due to the fact that the music is all Beatles songs, but to be fair there was always the chance they'd make poor decisions for how to present the songs. Fortunately that never happened. Between the visuals and the various cast members the songs are given their due and I thought it mostly worked, the sole exception being Eddie Izzard's vocals which I thought were off. It's a minor complaint though c"
