My lady and i really liked this movie.It was different and the soundtrack was great. If you like music and you are a baby boomer you will appreciate it .
This Movie is sooo AMAZING!!!!
i loved every second of it.
i think Jim Sturgess is f***ing perfect! he is adorable!
the music is so perfect, i mean the beatles are amazing. so is every bit of the music.
i recommend EVERYONE should go see this movie!
This is an absolutely beautiful movie! All the voices are beautiful and the acting is great. It's kind of like Moulin Rouge in it's weirdness, but it has a wonderful sound as well. If you love romantic musicals or if you love the Beatles, this is the movie for you!
A 12 out of 10!! a must see movie if your 50 or older!! Loved it and can not wait to see it again and again.
OMG JIM STURGESS IS SOOO HOTT!!!!!!!!!!! ! and his voice is just sooo dreamy and his eyes are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! !!!!!!!! One problem though, that was the only good thing about the movie. I could only follow it for about the first 15 minutes, and after that I was lost. Although, I might just see it again because of that face... lol
Fab. Or is it Pre-Fab? Certainly a beautiful film to look at, perhaps hallucinogens would make this more fun for you. I gotta say, it's better than George Burns as Mean Mr. Mustard. www.p lasticineporter .com
This IS truly an amazing film like nothing I've ever seen before.
Someti mes movies hit a boring spot, but this movie keeps your complete attention and I found myself excited about every scene change because of what I would experience. The colors were like bothing I'd ever seen before, especially in the scene with Bono. Unbelieveable! I don't think there is a word to describe the perfection of the voices! Just perfection, all of them.
This movie is a treat for all of your senses. It's a beautifully told love story. You'll laugh, cry and sit there totally amazed at what you are seeing.
Don't miss this film in the theatres. For 2 hours and 11 minutes you will be transported into another world!
simply amazing, beautiful, and love inspiring. simply this best film of the year, and being a beatles fan i was worried (and i am one of those scary obsessed fans) and i loved it all, there a few scense that differed in tones but they were great scenes so it was okay. see this film.
Watching this movie was like being in Heaven! I'm stunned at the amount of people who do not get this movie! I'm a writer/director /actor who has directed and written a feature film, so I like to think I have something of an educated opinion. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Across The Universe is one of the most amazing films I have ever seen!
I totally 100% get what Julie Taymor was doing in this film and it is a masterpiece! It is about music, pure and simple. It is about the music and the feelings and experiences the music provides. She took those feelings and experiences and put them on screen. There have been complaints of character development and things of that nature; those people totally missed the point. All those things they expect to get out of narrative were presented even stronger by the music. You FEEL what they feel, you experience what they experience, and in a much stronger and more profound way than simple narrative. An image is worth a thousand words, and music is worth a thousand images!
There are times in the movie where certain harmonies hit and I literally felt like I was lifting up into the air and a feeling of euphoria surged over my body. I felt like I was in heaven for a brief moment. That may sound nuts, but I assure you it's very real. And the people I brought to the film with me the second time felt the exact same thing. She had these same feelings because when I would feel like I was in the sky the characters would all of a sudden be surrounded by blue sky, or a sky made of water.
The visual art was incredible as well. Visually the feelings and music were illustrated close to perfectly with captivating art. Even the charcoal drawings in the background in certain scenes were incredible! It is rare that I'm affected by visual art, but every piece of art in this film did something inside me. The film as a whole is "art" at it's best!
Across the Universe is a film you have to experience with the right side of your brain, not the left. If you don't get what the music is sharing with you, then you are missing 85% of the film and you are going to be left with just the bare bones. Of course you are going to think the film is flat! If you don't get the visual art either, then you are missing 98%.
It's all about FEEL! You feel your way through the story, which is much more profound than thinking your way through one like all the rest of the films do.
If you "get it" and can feel the journey the music and art is taking you through, you will be blown away by this film and experience something you've never experienced before. If not, you will be left wondering what on earth the director was thinking!
