    I wanted to enjoy this movie but it's a mess.

    I was obsessed when I first saw this at the age of 16, almost 17 (in 2008). I watched it so many times in one year that I haven't watched it since 2009. I certainly still have a soft spot for it, but time and distance has dramatically decreased my bias. It's really just an enjoyable mess with no sense of cohesion or any notion of what a story is. Not all the covers are successful, but I still really like a lot of them.

    Loved this when I saw it in theaters when it first came out and I was 17. My least favorite parts then were my favorite parts this time around and vice versa, which means I enjoyed most of the movie far less seeing it as an adult. But I still really enjoy hearing Jim Sturgess sing Beatles songs.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    There are and will always be musical diehards who adamantly oppose these types of musical tributes. Who steadfastly believe in maintaining the integrity and artistry of the original Beatles. Those people are missing out on something quite wonderful (and if they listened to Joe Cocker's rendition of With a Little Help from My Friends they would be quite surprised). Across the Universe is a scrambled story, at times valuing its music ahead of its characters or its narrative, and sometimes…

    Yet another one of those movies which revell in a romanticized version of the 60s (rebel counter-culture American youth) without even scratching the surface of the events it tries to depict.

    While I appreciate Julie Taymor for trying to show her love for The Beatles. I cannot fathom the fact that even with breathtaking visuals and brilliantly performed songs, the film feels like a a collection of music videos stretched out like a typical Bollywood film. The characters don't feel real, their emotions don't feel real and the sad part is, the film doesn't feel real.

    God, do I hate this movie.

    The visuals are stunning, but it's just a Beatles jerk-off fest. The story is just weird and has no real substance.

    Also, a bunch of ~fake deep~ kids at school loved this movie, which, while that's not enough to dismiss the film entirely, makes this one personal.

    The musicians make this movie incredible. The arrangements of our favourite Beatles songs are done brilliantly.
