Elton John, who has been interviewed for this doco, has tweeted that he's seen the movie.



And apparently he liked it a lot!  Cool

Thanks a lot! I haven't left my one-room flat since three and a half weeks except for buying groceries. Thankfully there's so much great music by the boys to listen to.  angel "I will get by!" Although, that's another great band...  Cheesy

Are you going to upload the second part as well? I enjoyed the first one a lot! Thanks!

w00t! w00t! w00t! Can't wait for June to end!

My first reaction: "God, please have mercy on us! Save us from a duet of the Luvster and Helene Fischer!"  Ahhh!

At the moment this is by far my favorite mix. Great work! It has an authentic touch because you didn't try to include too many bits. At first I was sceptical of the use of Barnyard as the fade for H&V but now I really like this short and organic version. Can't wait to hear the B-side!

Thank you! Smiley He's probably looking for the Dr. Sommer section. Cheesy

I'd love to know the magazine made it into the Smile Sessions in the first place. Who knows, Micha, maybe that's the point when the whole project lost its innocence.  LOL

In Germany the release was postponed to December 4.  Undecided

Because of moments like this I'm a Beach Boys fan. Nothing is impossible. In any and every possible way... This time in a good way.  angel

Last sunday I had the chance to see a preview of the movie in Germany. It was the english version with german subtitles. Although I was already impressed when I left the cinema, the movie really grew on me in the last days. So many details, so many great scenes! I really hope I can see it again on the big screen!

Cleary, there went a lot of love into the production of the film. Even the minor roles in the movie had a lot of depth. For example I loved how Dennis was portrayed and although Mike obviously won't win a lot of fans, I've got the impression that many viewers get a chance to better understand his behaviour.

Let alone the convincing acting of Dano and Cusack!

I couldn't ask for more! Great movie!  Thud
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Finally a song from the new album on my favorite radio show... on: June 01, 2015, 02:57:04 AM
I hope this fits in here, but once again a radio station in Germany played a song from a new album. Only that it's NNP this time...

Just heard Saturday Night as I turned on the radio. Not only that, the presenter even talked about NNP and played a excerpt from an interview with She & Him followed by On The Island. To top it all off they played Sail Away, too. I'm still  gobsmacked. These songs really sound great on radio.  Transcendental Meditation
I really hope that they will add some of these songs to their general playlist...
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Love and Mercy - News and Reviews - First clip is out. on: May 26, 2015, 10:16:32 AM
I think they might. Off Broadway specialize in limited run films. Iron Sky was running there for quite some time when it first came out, for example.

If Iron Sky was running for a few weeks then my hope is restored. After all, there are some "surf nazis" in Love and Mercy.  Wink 2

In addition: "Et hätt noch emme jot jejange..."  Cool

For fans in Köln, Germany, Off Broadway kino will be playing the film from the 11th June in english with german subtitles.

Hopefully, they will show it for a few weeks as I'm not in the area until the end of june.  Sad At the moment it seems that the movie will only get a very limited release in Germany. But I'll keep my fingers crossed!

The german trailer for the movie is out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svcNfbL2Bv8

Can't wait to see it on the big screen. Hopefully...

Thank you for this great video! It's hard to believe that Sunflower isn't recognized as one of the greatest albums of all time...

It's incredible how much care and love went into the creation of this beautiful work!  Listening
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Jack Rieley has passed... on: April 21, 2015, 01:06:28 PM
Such sad news... Jack Rieley gave the Beach Boys a great new direction and kicked off one of the most creative periods in the band's history. Just listen to "Surf's Up", "Carl & the Passions" and "Holland"! Thanks Jack for adding another facet to the legend of the Beach Boys...  Embarrassed

Apparently the album will be released on March 31 in Germany and I guess in the rest of Europe, too. http://www.magistrix.de/news/musik/14540-album-am-31-maerz

Sometimes it's an advantage living in Europe.  Grin

Are you going to see the movie today or one of the other screenings? Can't wait to hear how it was!

Although I'm still confused why they only published two pictures officially until now. Wouldn't it be useful for reports about the movie to have some moved pictures?

Thank you! It's always fascinating to hear contemporary reports about the Boys. Smiley

Hey, there's already a discussion about the news: http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,17691.msg496975.html#msg496975

I wish Brian would use the search function. It's always the same with him...

Ah, it's also on Brian's homepage: http://www.brianwilson.com/news

You live in Berlin? Get two, I'm coming! Smiley

Yep, really looking forward to it.

If I wasn't a poor student far away from Berlin...  Cry  Have a great time! For me too... Wink

I'm really surprised and thrilled that Brian will come to Berlin. The Boys get far too little recognition in Germany. At least I always have the impression that I have to defend my taste of music whereas listening to the Beatles or Stones seems to be much cooler...

I'm curious if the movie will be shown in the usual cinemas in Germany. Until now i thought that it will be shown in very few small cinemas in English as a kind of niche movie that the general public won't be interested in. But now there's even a german website for Love and Mercy: http://www.loveandmercy.de/

Gee, I'm really looking forward to force all my friends to watch that movie!  Pirate
