"SYNOPSIS: A struggling musician realizes he’s the only person on Earth who can remember The Beatles." The plot of the entire film is exactly what your first, most unimaginative guess at what the plot might be is. It is just about watchable because Danny Boyle directed, so it's not unpleasant, but it's definitely a waste of time
Nobody, in either universe where the Beatles exist or not is ever gonna believe the story of a dude who interacts with Lily James for years and doesn't fall in love with her...also, did they set us up for a fantastic scene where he plays wonderwall for her and then didn't happen?
Un'altro film rovinato da un pessimo doppiaggio (esattamente come è stato per Blinded by the Light). A parte questo, è stato divertente e commovente il giusto, con versioni un po' più rock delle famose ed amate canzoni di Beatles. Non è spiegata la causa del black out, ma subito dopo di questo sono andata a vedere Ad Astra e forse la risposta è nelle onde elettromagnetiche di cui parlano in quel film :P
even at his poorest, Danny Boyle is always interesting. a sappy cute but somewhat lame generic romantic comedy that is not much of anything but at the hands of a superlative director becomes almost something as we are taken by his filmmaking class. visually stunning, supremely directed, one forgets the uninteresting script.
Boyle's sharp flow drives this impassioned film project where fantasy meets reality in a unique and unprecedented way. The cliche love story takes primary foothold here, though, as it transforms fantasy back to earth and grounds Jack's journey as a whole. This helps buttress our emotional commitment but also waylays the potential of its original feat of making the Beatles new again.
A whole new level of cheesiness. They don't really show how different the whole music industry would have been if The Beatles never existed. I have my doubts that Ed Sheeran, with the kind of music he does today, would exist without The Beatles, but I'm very grateful for that Oasis joke, so thank you. One thing is certain though, The Beatles music always brings people together.
It might be a touch slight for a Richard Curtis script but damn it is charming. The 'high' concept doesn't bear a lot of scrutiny but its 'feel good' elements outweigh any fixation on its scripting issues. The leads are quite good and the rom-com conventions work well enough between the songs and plotting. It's basically Boyle lite. One could do worse than taking in this 'date night' flick.
