I'm trying to come to come terms with Across the Universe, the movie musical that draws its characters from the Beatles catalog - Jude, Max, Sadie, Prudence, Jojo, Lucy - you get the idea.
If you haven't seen it, it uses a similar device as Forest Gump - placing the aforementioned characters in situations from the 1960s - and uses Beatles songs to stitch together a story that depicts the changing political, and cultural landscape of the era.
I saw this flick for the 1st time when I was in Guatemala back in January, and it recently showed up on my phantom inDemand channel on my HDTV. With the exception of the characters Sadie (that actress sucks) and Dr. Robert (Bono is really starting to bug me), I got into the way the Beatles tunes were used when I saw this the 1st time. But when I went back to look at some of the clips online, I wasn't feelin' it. Maybe it was something in the Guatemalan water?
Here's one of the better clips from Youtube.
