Basically, I saw this movie in the theater because I was on Winter Leave, and my mom saw it on television. Basically, she LOVES the Beatles. Growing up, she collected every single one of their freaking albums, among others. She has a place in our entertainment cabinet set aside just for those 36 or so albums...so, of course, I took her to see it.

Now, I'm no Beatles expert, I think they were a pretty decent band, but I've got to say the vocals done by Joe Anderson in "Girl" and the new version of "Hey Jude" were pretty fantastic. However, the rest I feel fail in comparison to the true spirit of The Beatles. (Needless to say, it was a decent movie, with excellent choreography, but it still lacked some luster)

What version of the songs did you like better...the original Beatles, or the Across the Universe version?


\/\/ I half-expected something like that as the first response.

I don't know the Across The Universe version, but I very much enjoy the song in its original format. I've always had a thing about Lennon's vocals, they're so much better on the early records, by around Sgt. Peppers time they sound very whiney.

I loved Across the Universe, and I admit that some of the covers from the movie are pretty damn good, but nothing can really compare to the originals.

The covers were really good, as was the movie, but ya gotta go with the originals!
My signature is stupid.

Evan Rachel Wood killed pretty much every song she did. Otherwise most of the covers were fairly well done. The choreography was god awful imo. If you watch the dance part of 'Come Together' carefully, you can see one of the dancers on the right side of the screen almost fall over.

I didn't pay attention to the movie. I spent most of the time snogging my then girlfriend.

I loved the movie. It was good, but nothing will ever beat the actual Beatles.

I got kicked out of a Mac store when me and my friends simultaneously put on meatspin on all of the computers in the store. Some eleven or twelve year old looking girls there freaked out.

I noticed that, too. However, in the beginning, after the girls sang the 2nd part of the first part of the first verse, when he was walking down the street, I thought that was very well done, especially turning the melody over to the man in the questionably pimpish suit.

Heh. I saw the end just yesterday at a church thing but I spent that time cuddling with some girl i met that day. I was confused but it was all good.

The covers sounded good though, and the storyline looked okay.


The Beatles make me intensely happy.

i think my favorite song of the movie had to be "oh darlin". that "messed up" guitar that the dude was playing i think actually sounded bad ass. plus, a flying V with a bigsby? thats just sweet.

worst song: blackbird. i love the original, but that girls high pitched..."voice" was annoying on that one.

ps i think i might have over used "" but im okay with that.
