    I'm watching this movie all over again just for the look on their faces at the very end on the rooftop.

    It's movies like this that justify that pool of vomit in the bottom of my throat when the word musical comes up. Okay, Across the Universe wasn't all horrible, it wasn't much good either. I can't put the blame on the execution, Julie Taymor had some good sequences that would make amazing music videos, and the production values are top notch. I even enjoyed a few of the covers. The problem with the movie is the core gimmick. Take as…

    Loved it years ago... but then i realized half of the songs are either unnecessary or not even good covers.

    The sum is better than the whole of its parts here.

    Julie Taymor is nothing if not a woman who takes risks, and the best sequences in this Beatles jukebox musical are ones where the music, imagery and storytelling really mesh together. I really liked the eerie tango dance and dehumanizing military exam in "I Want You (She's So Heavy)", and also the (albeit on-the-nose) "Strawberry Fields Forever" sequence intersecting art and war together. The musical arrangements are all at…

    I'm filled with nostalgia everytime I watch this (it's been at least ten times). I don't think it will ever go away.

    This is the first time I've actually seen this movie the whole way through without the vcr melting in on itself and I can honestly say that this movie stresses me out 

    Very reminiscent of RENT which I appreciate and also love

    I didn't cry though, I cried during RENT. But still good, it just wasn't RENT ya know

    The covers of the songs are great. Some are different than the original, some are very different, but they're all great.

    A lot of cool visuals during the song sequences. Particularly "I've Just Seen a Face."

    The writing is a little weak.

    The direction, outside of the musical sequences, is a little bland. Same ol' same ol'

    Beatles Month comes to another close as I take a look at my personal favorite musical of all time, Across The Universe.

    Jude was a Liverpoolian boy who went to America to find his father. He soon befriends a delinquent named Max, gets together with Max’s sister named Lucy, & they all move to New York. There, they get a landlord…
