Dudes, I just finished watching Across the Universe on pay-per-view.
Can I say it was awesome?!
When I first heard about it, it didn't speak to me. Wasn't the least bit interested. Then I heard the director, Julie Taymor, being interviewed on some talk show, and saw a few clips, and thought hmmm, might have to give it a try.
I also don't typically like covers, I like the original music. Every time. Well, almost. But I actually like the arrangements of the songs in this.
Well, I literally stayed put on the sofa through the entire movie. And when I watch a movie at home, my attention span is pretty short. Or more accurately, I'm easily distracted by things that need to be done. But not with this one.
I'll be looking for the soundtrack tomorrow.
One of the most moving scenes, visually and aurally, was Let it Be:
Speaking of soundtracks, I just realized I'd abandoned the soundtrack of my life after only two parts. I'll get back to that this weekend.
