It's not playing in one single theatre in San Diego. I still can't believe it.

I saw Superbad in DLP, there is an enormous difference between that and a normal screen. I love it.

It wasn't playing at my local theater, which I thought was odd. Perhaps there are too many big movies out around this time. There's another theater we go to about 15 minutes away that has stadium seating, which we prefer. We got there early just in case. Small theater, maybe a couple hundred people, but it was definitely pretty full, and there was no show listed after ours, which leads me to believe the 7:10 show had already sold out much earlier in the day (even before out 4:10 one) {it was listed as playing later in the newspaper}. I tried not to sing along too often or out loud

I loved seeing Joe Cocker in there that was unexpected surprise.

It was pretty much what I expected - not really a revelation or anything, but good fun.

It was only showing at one theater in Austin, which makes absolutely no sense to me. But my girlfriend and I went to see it tonight and good lord I was disappointed. So bad. So, so bad.

Don't get me wrong, there were some cool parts. I just really couldn't get into it in the least. With a weak storyline and weak actors, it was sometimes a labor to watch. Being a huge Beatles fanatic, I loved a few of the small, subtle nods Prudence coming in through the bathroom window, for instance), but for the most part I was tremendously disappointed.

Bono did a good job though. His ramble after stepping off the bus was a highlight.

Unless you're watching something weeks into it's release and it's been played heavily, digital projection can't touch the quality that 35mm projection can attain, it's only avantage is that there's no print to get scratched up after weeks of exhibition.

I saw last night it was a lot of fun. The music and the visuals were very well done.

The thing with this one seems to be that there's so much potential....but perhaps it doesn't quite live up to it.

I haven't seen it yet, but plan to either tomorrow or Monday. We shall see!

I think it lived up to it's potential with flying colors.

Across the Universe..What did you think of the Movie?

I just saw this movie and I will not ruin it for anyone who has yet to see it. It is Brilliant!!! And Bono has a good part and really shined in this! And of course, the music was great!

Yes, not bad, although it goes wierder and wierder towards the end, but the music is awesome obviously. I found it a bit too long though.
Bono is good and you can see Macphisto's grin coming out at one point, it's funny.

I saw it yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. My friend was laughing at me when Bono was on the screen because I was grinning from ear to ear and I couldn't stop


Enjoyable film. Nothing life changing, but I really enjoyed it.
