Has anyone else seen this new flick? For those unaware, the premise of the movie I loves a young English guy who is a struggling musician. One night, while riding his bike, he his hit by a bus at the precise moment there is world-wide power outage. When he awakes he finds himself in a world in which The Beatles never existed. He is then faced with the moral, creative and existential dilemma of passing off The Beatles catalogue as his own. I haven’t spoiled anything here as everything I’ve described is in the trailer. My take away... While well made, I had some casting issues, especially that of Kate McKinnon. She’s obviously there as both comic relief and to personify the perils of fame and being at the mercy of a large label that views its artists purely as product. I liked Himesh Patel as the star. His portrayal was honest and his musicianship rose to the challenge. I’m not entirely sure what I expected going in, but I suppose due the central Beatles theme, I unconsciously wanted this to be great, which it’s not. It’s a fun way to escape for a few hours and be entertained. The biggest message I took from the movie is actually stated by a minor character in one scene... “The world is an infinitely lesser place without The Beatles.” There is another scene I will not describe so as not to spoil anything that I found incredibly touching. Hint: it takes place after “Jack’s” debut concert where he visits a man on the coast. What are some of your thoughts? EDIT: I almost forgot the big question... If faced with this dilemma, what would you do?!?
