Haha yeah, you'll be drunk by 1/3, and asleep under the table by 1/2 of the way through! :D

I think the director planned ok how many naked women can we get into the first 15 mins, ready, set GO! May I just say that Stu's portrait of yer one at the beginning was very good in the words of John "He got the tits right"

I can't be the only one that went d'awwww at the bit with George and his mam wanting him to bring scones with him a-hard-days-night-george-10

^ No, you weren't. Typical British thing to do, give him some scones for the journey! (I'm always given scones by my nan when going away, anyway). And he was so embarrassed about it, cute! I thought the actor did okay with his accent, which I was listening very closely to the minute he first spoke (after I identified him as being George).

I get told to feck off and never come back when I'm going away. Aww my loving family and friends a-hard-days-night-john-3 Yeah yer man playing George did a decent job as good as any other George-portrayal we've ever seen anyways. Somewhere there is somebody who in the world who looks like George Harrison and sounds like him....SOMEWHERE

And I think I found him:

I can't hear it, I can't hear it! Nooooo!!! (no speakers - this computer is from the 16th century). Now I'm missing out on the chance to see/hear a George Harrison look and sound-alike! :(

Interesting review of the the film by the Guardian, tho it seems a little peevish towards Paul at the end. Never knew that the music was performed by a tribute band comprising of "Dave Grohl of Nirvana, Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, and Mike Mills of REM".

He told us not to get overwhelmed by grief and whatever thoughts we have... to keep them happy, because any thoughts we have of him will travel to him wherever he is. (John Lennon - 27/8/67)

Despite the impressive "Supergroup" lineup, I wasn't impressed with this film at all, a complete bastardization of The Beatles' rise to fame with the predictable Hollywood treatment.  For a much better and more accurate portrayal of this tale of their story, I'd recommend 'The Birth of The Beatles', and Rain did a much better Soundtrack than the updated Nirvana/Sonic Youth/REM tracks...:-)

I haven't seen Backbeat, i found Birth of the Beatles to be riddled with annoyances.

I'm guessing most movies will not please us Beatles fans as we are sticklers for the truth, and most movies exaggerate some stuff to fit their movie, and rarely find actors that portray them perfectly!  That's why I suggest you try to enjoy it for what it is, otherwise you will be dissappointed.
