Movie Rating: Across the Universe


Last night Heredes and I went to Sunset Place to watch "Across the Universe". A couple of people had told us that it was "Awesome, Incredible"...I think it was pretty good. I think I have to watch it a second time. I'll give 3.2 out of 5 stars. As I write, Heredes is playing the music and I'm getting into it :) It was a very theatrical, psychadelic movie. I described it to my sister this way: "It was like watching a movie being High." Which I don't even know what that would be like, but you know, it was Hippie/Beatles era.
I think one of my favorite parts of the movie, besides the fact that the British actor was like so cute, was the Strawberry Fields song/scene. The pic of his artwork is so cool. Take a look. I loved it!

"Hey Jude" was also great. It was a pretty cool concept, making the storyline based off of the Beatle's music. I know that I am going to go research the Vietnam War now, thanks to the movie....
Another favorite was the beginning. So beautiful!!! Well, enjoy the pics and if you haven't seen it yet...go ahead and give it a try. Moulin Rouge still has to be one of my favorites. Next movie I want to see is Keira Knightley's "Atonement". Heredesis probably going to post about the movie, so make sure to read his fascinating critique.

i'd really like to see this movie - I love the beatles. Will probably have to wait for DVD. Saw some parts on Oprah show - looks like eye candy - like Moulin Rouge. I guess musicals are back in style - Moulin, Hairspray, now this. Good - I enjoy all that singing and dancing. Am I strange???
