    Default Beatles Fan? Check this out...



    Nowhere Boy | Now Playing In Select Cities | Official Movie Site

    Nowhere Boy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Nowhere Boy



    I saw this the other night. If you love the Beatles like I do, it will leave you wanting more of the story & appreciative of understanding where John Lennon came from as it is a story of a teenage JL & the formation of the Beatles...the BACK-story if you will, cause you probably, like me, already know the rest.

    If you have ever lost someone or grew up with divorced parents or just a fkd up family, you will appreciate how John uses those factors & some other cultural influences, (hey like ELVIS & the conformist English way of life) to transform his pain & anger into one of most creative music groups of the the last 50 years. There are moments in the film that shot me in the heart so don't think that since you're a tough guy you will escape the emotion of this film. I think that if you are human, it will be difficult to do.

    Another film I saw years ago was this...





    Again if you love the Beatles, this movie is a great tribute & a fun story constructed with their songs.

    I am a big Beatles fan. I have some prints of John Lennon's artwork, one signed by Yoko Ono. I wasn't crazy about Across the Universe, but I will see Nowhere boy.

    I think maybe most old time fans didnt like it as much but it was a highly creative use of their music & I know a lot of younger fans were created by the film.

    I think you're right. Did you notice that my signature (the quote at the bottom of my posts) is from a Beatles song? There's a story behind it.

    Okay. When my wife and I were getting married, we each tried to think of a song to use for our wedding song. When we told each other our choices, we had both picked the same song: "Here, There and Everywhere" by the Beatles. It became one of "our songs."

    Many years later, in January of our daughter's senior year of high school (our only child), my wife died of breast cancer. When she graduated that spring, I took out a full page ad in her yearbook. It was just a picture of the three of us in happy times with the caption, "Love Never Dies," a line from the song.

    Sorry to hear about your wife, Spider.

    On a related note, that was the wife and my wedding song, also. Crazy. I thought we were original. Although for our age group, we were probably for the most part.
