Love story meets music video meets acid
Which I guess is just any modern music video anyways
Love the visual effects and the application of the musics to the script.
All but a few of the characters are pretty one-note and the story could use some work, but "Across the Universe" is a great visual trip with stunning imagery, a talented cast, and great covers of songs by The Beatles that make the film enjoyable to watch over and over again.
I love the Beatles. I love musicals. I love that Julie Taymor put the two together. It's just a lot of fun and the songs are catchy and also Bono.
Also, I've seen this about 16 times so that should say something.
simplesmente maravilhoso. história incrível com ótimas atuações e o que dizer da trilha sonora: maravilhosa.
I love this movie!!!!
I don't know whose idea it was to take a bunch of mushrooms and watch this film directly after - but it was a solid one.
Thoughts that followed were:
- Lucy is a drag
- Jude took too many Marijuanas
- Why does Lucy care so much about Max? (My friend missed the part about them being siblings and thus the film turned REALLY weird for her)
- The first half hour of the film is terrible
Despite being disjointed and at times aimless, there is something about the film that is pure. It is what it is... A Beatles soundtrack with a movie stuffed in. Sometimes the the filmmakers need to segue into another Beatles song is frustrating and comes off forced, but on a whole it gives a decent tribute to the band. If for no other reason, see it for the music.
I'm a Beatles superfan, so I was destined to love this.
There is cheesiness here but, fuck it, it's a musical.
As the passage of time flows harmoniously, the 1960s are represented nostalgically, with psychedelic colour and visuals exploding across the screen. Spectacular cinematography and choreography carries us through the action while Beatles music is mixed beautifully to suit a stormy decade.
A journey of emotional and musical splendour.
Different, and respectable effort. I find most Beatles covers unbearable, so that had an effect, though some were done well.
Directed by Julie Taymore("The tempest") , Across the Univers is a musical that gathered from lousy ("goofy,pompous" ) to great ("bold","visually enchanting" ) criticism and to witch Taymore referred as an attempt "to creat an original musical using the songs of the Beatles".
Starring Evan Rachel Woods as Lucy , an american suburbs teenage , Joe Andeson as Max ,her brother and Jim Sturgess as Jude , a young english worker who goes to America , the film doesn't have…
I guess that you don’t have to be a Beatles fan to enjoy this film but I’m so glad I am (and a huge one) because otherwise I don’t think I could have appreciated it properly. I don’t mean to say that I loved it because I didn’t, but being one certainly had an influence in the fact that I was thoroughly entertained and that I was surely delighted by several musical segments which were simply magical.
I think it…
