God I remember reading ages ago that Paul had seen it and liked it. I don't have the time to search for it though. I don't know about Ringo's reaction to it.  

Is this Paul being diplomatic when asked a question as he is very unlikely to come out and say "I went to see it and thought it was ghastly, the covers were abysmal"?

There's actually autotune in this film, autotune in a Beatles cover, the singers must suck even worse than i remember.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Eh probably, most likely. ATU did some daring scenes for some of the song interpretations so I think they deserve some credit (that and Jim Sturgess is an absolute ride)

The leading guy in ATU. I don't just randomly call out men in my posts or do Richard Madden I?

Oh God I just saw a horrific film Sunshine on Leith which is the same as ATU but with Proclaimers' songs (obviously). Oh dear, these things are never good are they? They never seem to have a proper plot just see what the songs' lyrics are, and form some kind of plot around it. 

Also one of the twats in it decided to propose to his girlfriend at her parents' 25th anniversary party. God , you don't do something massive like propose at someone else's party, it's not cool!

I recently watched Across The Universe for the fourth or fifth time, and it was once again brillant.

 

It's not only the great renditions of our beloved classics, which are faithful and highly original at the same time, but also the imaginative imagery, the visual direction through framing, colours and editing, as well as the affectionate story which take me into some sort of 1960s dreamworld. The visual and musical aspects work together perfectly. It is one of the best films of the 2000s for me. 10 / 10

The Walrus was probably Ringo

I just recently watched the movie, and personally I didn't really like it. The acting wasn't very good and the plot line seemed pretty scattered. There where a lot of times I didn't even know what was going on. Like during the Strawberry Fields sequence, I wasn't sure what they where trying to do there. The music was great though, so that made up for some of the bad acting.
