Across The Universe

We went to see Across the Universe last night. For those who don’t know, it’s a movie about the 60s using the Beatles’ music as the soundtrack/backdrop.

I liked it but didn’t love it. There were many in the theater who did love it. We couldn’t leave until all the credits had rolled because our entire row was sitting mesmerized as Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds played to a psychedelic background. Most of the audience was 10-15 years older than me. And it seemed that everyone of that generation absolutely loved it from the chatter in the theater on the way out.

There were some great cameos, the best of which was Bono as Dr. Robert singing I Am The Walrus.

My favorite scene/song was Happiness Is A Warm Gun. But it’s always been the "john songs" that got my juices flowing.
