Oh yeah…


Quick note. Across The Universe? Best. Film. Ever.


  • I thought it was bad. It could have been great, but was off the mark in ways where if you don't do it right, it sucks.

    • cbm: we differ in viewpoints

  • What was great about it is that I didn't grow up listening to The Beatles, so I had no context that justified the importance people placed on their music. There were a couple Beatles songs I liked, but without context I always thought they were an average band. Across the Universe puts their music in a historical context and now I finally get it! The movie helped me understand why The Beatles matter so much.

  • Neal: Exactly! :-) Now imagine how you feel if you've lived through it… (or at least the tail end of it!). Amazing.

  • Loved it. Didn't expect to. Was half expecting to switch it off. But it was brilliant.

    • Yeah I know what you mean. The first 10 minutes I was like…what….? But the leads were so amazing that it sucked you in I thought. :)
