Default Across The Universe

Have you guys seen it?

It'* a musical using songs from The Beatles. I know I should put myself under homo-suspicion for saying I enjoyed a musical, but I thought it was really good.

Great story, acting, and the songs are done very well:

Bono singing I Am The Eggman FTW!
U2 did a kick a$$ job, and Bono'* acting was great. If you get a chance, check it out. If you've seen it, let me know what you thought.

Cheers,
Adam

I loved it too

Probably one of the better movies I've seen in a long time.

I just couldn't get into it; thought it was rather boring. Sorry.

Loved it enough to buy it. One of the first DVDs I've bought in a good while.

I absolutely love the Bealtes though. If you don't like the Beatles, you probably won't like the movie. Half of the awesomeness of it is anticipating Hey Jude and Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

Did you know the main female (can't remember her name) is Marilyn Manson'* g/f? She just looks too wholesome in the movie.

Bono is great. I like the movie versions of the songs better than the beatles'.

Glad to know I wasn't alone!
Yes, it takes a little while to get going, but the psychedelic scenes were fantastic!

Bono on the bus was great! It was interesting to see him act with an "American" accent.

Cheers,
Adam
