My friend brought it over yesterday for us to watch.  I thought it was decent at least, even if I did laugh at a lot of the scenes with Paul. a-hard-days-night-paul-7  He just seemed so dweeby and un-Paul-like.  Also, was THAT much tension between John and Julia necessary?  There were times when I felt like Julia was going to kiss John, and with the sex scene put in like it did, I honestly thought it was with Julia for a second.  a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Nowhere boy. The one of the best ... nah. It is indeed the best biography I have ever seen.

 The title hero is John Lennon. Movie shows first Lennon's revolts, his family and how hard he had to work/suffer/love to get onto the top. 90 minutes make him more adorable than he was and, for me, I've totally changed my way of thinking about John Lennon after it all.

I won't say anything else, because you just have to watch it. Maybe more two things:

- one of the best soundtarck is used in this film

- actors really gave all heart and you can see, they really prepared for these roles

(or three)

- the climate of 50s and 60s is just indescribable

 who's your feeling, guys.?

I saw the clip of recording In Spite Of All The Danger on youtube which i liked but still have no desire whatsoever to see the film. I always get so damn annoyed at the stupid inanities that feature in these films; artistic license, stupid lack of attention to detail, darn-right idiotic errors that a deranged blind gerbil could spot.

Try A Hard Day's Night and Help! Both movies have the actual Beatles in them. They're definitely not for everybody, but as a big fan you would enjoy them I think.

  yees… actually, I saw both a hard day's night and help and whole movies I was like: wow. beatles must be humans, beacuse there aren't the best in each craft they do. and so, since that, one question's constantly drilling my mind. ekhem: why did they do that.?!

   mostly, people say money, but I think it isn't it – beatles are the very last people who'd worry about money. I'd lead toward more spiritual aspects, so I'd say they just wanted to have a bit of fun. laugh at each others and try something new. but I feel like it isn't still the answer … what're your feelings about it.?

 yea. thanks for these titles, Jet! but actually I was asking something completly opposite. I meant if you know any film which is about beatles' history or some of beatle's history. Non documentary film – more biographical. (; just like nowhere boy.

Me too... I was like "HOLY HELL..." and then I was like "whoa, never mind." Glad I'm not the ONLY one who thought that at first.

I saw it with  my mom in 8th grade, which was awkward, to say the least.

There was this awful old man and his wife in the row behind us who kept snorting and laughing at weird times, like when people died. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

Yeah, I got his autograph for Ellie. I'm sure I've mentioned this before, so forgive me if you've read it elsewhere.

I saw a press screening of Nowhere Boy at Studio Two, Abbey Road.

I went on my own and didn't know anyone there. No big deal, but before the film started I was taking notes, head down, pen on notebook. When someone sat next to me I didn't look up.

At the beginning there was a short speech by Sam Taylor-Wood, and the guy next to me laughed. I thought "that sounds like Rufus Wainwright's laugh" - his is very distinctive/annoying. Listen to the very end of Harvester Of Hearts on Want One. Anyway, I watched the film, then at the end the lights went on and it was indeed RW. So I said Hi, can I have your autograph for my wife etc. He was a nice guy. I've seen him live quite a few times but oddly I couldn't think of anything particularly meaningful to say.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

I saw this movie, it was all right.  I am really picky with movies when they don't get actors that look more like the real people.  Paul just wasn't convincing enough for me.  Why didn't they use Jim Sturgess from Across The Universe?  He already looks a lot like him, allthough he probably looks to old to play a teenager I guess.  Regardless, someone else could have looked a lot closer.  Same with George.  John's was pretty good, but of course the blue eyes.

I read Paul McCartney's opinion of the movie, and he liked it other than the fact that he was shorter than John in the movie (which he wasn't in real life, weren't they only a half an inch apart?) and also the part where John punches him, he says did not happen.  Also he says that Mimi wasn't as harsh as she came off in the movie.  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

I spat my tea when I heard Aaron Johnson play the role of John Lennon. The first time I heard of Aaron Johnson was in the film "Shanghai Knights" he played the role of a street urchin named Charlie Chaplin.

P.S Shanghai Knights had a reference to the Beatles.

Roy O'Bannon wanted to name his grandchildren as Vera, Chuck and Dave

I haven't honestly watched Nowhere Boy, it's hard to find a copy. I also remember Paul saying that he was portrayed as someone "smaller" than John. He also said that the punch didn't happen.
