Thoughts on Across the Universe

After the third viewing, the musical numbers are rather cheesy, Evan Rachel Wood is annoying, the editing is weird, Jim Sturgess' psuedo-coolness is now lame jabs at being mysterious. In short, this is not rewatchable. Go see Moulin Rouge, Director Julie Taymor, and see how this shit's done.

So I take it you're not a fan? All the musical numbers aren't bad (Dana Fuchs was nice in parts, and "Because" came off well). But yeah, the movie's not much to shout about.

I liked it the first time, but after multiple viewings, the flaws are very glaring.

I enjoyed it. It's flawed but some moments really sweep you off your feet. I have only seen it twice so that might be why ;)
