Beatles Soundtrack In 2001 Movie

;Hello. I saw a movie last night called "I Am Sam". It is a PHENOMINAL movie. Easily one of my favorites. The reason I am mentioning it, it because the sondtrack is made up ENTIRELY of Beatles songs. They are covers (Much like Across The Universe, only they are played by legit acts ((Pearl Jam, etc.)) instead of teens) but they are still good. If you dont like covers, check it out anyway. Its a heartfelt, emotional movie that will easily be anyones fave. Check it out, its on YouTube.

    I came into this thread expecting someone who synced The White Album with 2001: A Space Odyssey. I am disappointed.

    The disappointment was a bit of an exaggeration on my part. Confused was probably more of my emotion.

    I agree. I Am Sam is one of my favorite movies, and it's got an awesome soundtrack to boot. Besides, my name is in the title. ;)

    it is a sad movie. That was a great job by Dakota Fanning though. She was proving how good a little actress she was even in childhood.

    And I don't really like the wallflowers version of "Im Looking Through You". It just doesn' t have the energy of the original. There are a few good covers though. I just remember that not being one of them. I think Sarah McLaughlin (not sure on spelling) does a really great cover of Blackbird on that soundtrack though. I know she does Blackbird, but don't remember if it was in that movie or not. If it isn't, it should be checked out. I know Sean Penn couldn't pry the rights to the original beatles songs, so he had other artists record them. I read when it came out that he originally shot the movie using the original beatles songs. When they couldn't get the rights, he found artists who would cover the songs, but THEY HAD TO RECORD THEM AT THE SAME BEAT/.STYLE/TEMPO, so as not to mess up the timing of the movie. So I appreciate that the artists DIDN'T Get there own take on the songs. That way there weren't these crazy, awful sounding versions of beatles songs. Even though there were still some bad sounding songs.

    Also, cannot remember, but there was a good version of Golden Slumbers.......I think it was Ben Folds Five who did it.

    Great movie but terrible soundtrack. I don't like Beatles' covers, which is why Across the Universe was such a bad movie. Oh, and the fact that the story was god awful. They just invented scenes and characters to insert songs and those scenes were bad and did not pertain to the story at all.

    really, the story was awful ? a loving father trying to get his little girl back, because the court system and society sees him as an unfit parent is a terrible story ?

    /no soul

    EDIT: Sorry read your post wrong.

    I, for one, don't see it like that at all. I think the story was great. Its the first movie in a while to actually make me cry. Next to Pulp Fiction, this is one of the greatest movies in the history of cinema.

    I think he was talking about Across The Universe, not I Am Sam. Just my take. And he is right. Across The Universe is AWFUL. Especially when Bono gets involved.

    Cheeses,

    Didn't you just see this movie last night? Or two nights ago? And it to you is already "ONE OF THE GREATEST MOVIES IN THE HISTORY OF CINEMA"? I think that is a mighty big step. I disagree with both of your movie choices as being "GREATEST MOVIES IN HISTORY OF CINEMA". But they are good movies. Just not two of the best I've ever seen. Infact, I think there may even be better Tarantino movies than Pulp Fiction. I know at least 1, questionably 2. And I know there is a HUGE CULT FOLLOWING for a third movie of his. None being Kill Bill.

    well, seeing how it overstepped Pulp Fiction, that's how i see it. Does it matter how long ago i have seen it? Its got everything. GREAT acting, good soundtrack, AMAZING plot, replay value, everything.

    Alright. To each his/her own. It is a good movie, that is not being questioned. Just never heard anyone call it there favorite. And I just ask about the time since seeing it because most people take a little bit to reflect back on the movie once it has settled into the mind, think to see if those same parts they got goosebumps during still make you feel the same way a few days later, to look back on parts you didn't like and wonder if you feel differently about them now, and how the whole movie came together to tell a story, good or bad, and how that story made you feel, looking back on it. Could you relate to any of the characters, little things. It usually is more of a process for me to decide if a movie is indeed one of my all time favs, or just a flavor of the week.

    I am glad you thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and it has impacted you in some way. Take that feeling the movie gave you and make something great come from it. It is inspiration.

    Change of pace, but was that Michelle Pfieffer's last good movie? I cannot recall any that have come out since then that was worth anything.

    I've seen I am Sam several times, very nice film and the covers are suprisingly good. The camera work makes me a little dizzy though, lol.

    The scene where Michelle is racing through the st. trying to make the hearing in like what, 15 mins. That scene has a lot of crazy cameras.

    I love it and as said earlier Dakota Fanning does an excellent job and I have to say I liked most of the covers(especially Eddie Vedar doing YGtHYLA)

    No I meant Across the Universe was horrible. I loved I am Sam. Sean Penn was great in that and it makes me cry sometimes...
