"Is there anybody going to listen to my story
All about the girl who came to stay?
She's the kind of girl you want so much
It makes you sorry
Still you don't regret a single day.
Pēc pirmās filmas ainas, kurā galvenais varonis nodziedāja dziesmas "Girl" pirmo pantiņu, sapratu, ka filma man patiks. Tā arī bija.
Jā, filma nav izcili saturīga un ir tāda, ja var teikt - nekārtīga brīžiem, bet man tas netraucēja, jo es sagaidīju…
Incredible design and an infusion of the pure spirit of The Beatles make this film a jubilant, unique, and ultimately singular piece.
I liked the music a lot, but just about everything else killed it for me.
Chato é uma boa palavra para definir, embora seja uma crítica medíocre. Chato.
por que eu esperei tanto tempo pra ver esse filme?
Woke up, got out of bed. Dragged a comb across my head. Found my way downstairs and drank a cup, and looking at the blog I noticed I was late (heah, heah, heah, heah) in posting a review of Julie Taymor’s sadly insipid karaoke-musical Across the Universe. Ever since Ms. Quarles’ fourth-grade class in Florence, SC spent a full week on the Beatles — discussing lyrics, watching A Hard Day’s Night, etc. — they’ve been a part of my mental…
There's a lot to like in this elaborate and spectacularly overproduced jukebox musical.
Because, let's face it, these are all very good songs. And Julie Taymor has the theatrical sensibilities needed to dramatize them in operatic and cinematic fashion.
But you know what this movie needs? A story. Because it doesn't have one. Literally. It has about 37 stories all competing for narrative attention.
I suppose, at heart, we are supposed to take this as the decade-spanning love affair between…
The Beatles are arguably the greatest band of all time. Because of that, I must definitely give it to everyone who worked on this movie because it has to be tough to live up to such expectations when using a license like The Beatles. The Beatles aspect of Across The Universe is in fact really great, though. There are some really amazing covers of some already amazing songs, along with a lot of cool visuals (though some hokey ones here…
Debo confesar que esta película me tomo por sorpresa, sobre todo porque se trata de un musical romántico, y eso no es justo la combinación que busco en un film.
Across the Universe es una película que rockea por todo lo alto, sobre todo por su alta dosis de canciones de los Beatles, que son muy bien versionadas en cada una de las escenas.
En lineas generales me parece que se trata de una película que puede entretener y divertir en todo momento, y más aun si disfrutas del la musica
Siempre es un placer escuchar su soundtrack.
Did my best to give this a chance, went into it with an open mind as well. However, I just feel it's an insult not only to The Beetles and film making but also just to decent entertainment in general.
I'm not particularly familiar with The Beatles' songs, so I figured this film would be a good entry point into their vast catalogue. The music renditions, from an objective point of view, were pretty solid. I never knew Jim Sturgess had such a good voice, and Evan Rachel Wood held up well too.
The downside is I felt the plot was rather scattered, and at times I didn't know where it were going. Supporting characters were established at the beginning,…
