Well, Joe is optimistic it'll be released in, like, 2013 or thereabouts. (Michael Lindsay-Hogg sez so, too.) That might explain why it's supposedly disappeared from Youtube. Try thinking positive for a change, MeanM! :)

As for the altered "Magical Mystery Tour", a cynic or a Paul-hater might think that Paul made the change himself out of jealousy. I'm not suggesting that myself, though (really I'm not.) It is pretty annoying and pointless, I agree. GRRR revisionism…

I prefer the cynicism of Paul & Ringo wanting nobody to ever see LIB and so sent Apple's war men on the trail of youtube deletion. Magical Mystery Tour has vanished from youtube however. A Hard Days Night was upped again in full a week ago. Help! has been on for a year.

 

However you can watch the bbc arena documentary Magical Mystery Tour Revisited in full. So for all who havent seen it here it is (its well worth the viewing time).

Wait its back.

 

A youtube search has revealed Let It Be is back after being reuppped. However for some reason, no idea why, its on its side.

Download it and flip in a movie software programme? No idea how easy that is but should be possible.

Probably is pretty easy but I'm not exactly PC-savvy so I think I'll just turn the laptop onto it's side and hope it doesn't fall off wherever I decide to watch it. (Didn't have chance to yesterday). S'pose I'll have to hold it the whole way through. Better be worth it.a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

Haha, the BBC should've broadcast it sideways in its original airing, just to make it even more incomprehensible/druggy/"avant garde"!

I finally got around to watching the Blu-ray last night.  The picture is the best I've seen of the film (despite hardly being the best HD can offer), but I was more impressed with the clarity of the dialogue.  For years I'd found a lot of it rather garbled.  All the extras (along with 'MMT Revisited' ) managed to give me an even greater appreciation for the film.  I never realized the pedigree of some of the cast members… or, particularly, that Jolly Jimmy eventually played the guest who died in the "Kipper and the Corpse" episode of Fawlty Towers.a-hard-days-night-george-2  I'd also forgotten how absolutely gorgeous both Mandy Weet (tour hostess Wendy Winters) and Maggie Wright (the 'starlet,' i.e. the girl in the fur coat who usually sat next to Paul on the bus -- too bad she wasn't given a little more to do) were  a-hard-days-night-john-6… and I was disappointed neither one turned up in the extras (though, upon further research, it seems Weet unfortunately died from leukemia back in '01  : ( ).

I had arranged getting the duluxe package but after finding the soundtrack has been changed ive lost all enthusiasm. I have the bbc screening saved on sky+ and can live without the extras for the minute. Might sound petty but i hate the idea of not getting what we should.

I'll do the same if instead of the original promos we eventually get "new" ones like Yoko did for some of Johns when Legend was issued on dvd.

 

More looking forward to Love Me Do coming thru my letterbox on Monday or Tuesday.

I just watched it again a couple days ago in 3D, and it was pretty amazing. AHDN and Help! both look pretty good too. It's weird because you wouldn't expect them to look good since their so old. Disney movies look better, but that is only because they're made for it.

You can watch MMT in 3D? Where did you watch it? I'd pay for that.

I have a 3D TV, so you can turn regular movies or TV shows into 3D.

I got Help! at the beginning of the summer and fell head over heels in love with it. I literally watched it every day and have parts of the movie memorized. I got MMT in the mail yesterday and watched it last night. I had the same expectations for it that it would be as good as Help! was, but I realized it was completely different. I enjoyed seeing it because it's the Beatles, but it definitely didn't have the same effect on me.

You make your own dream.

Yeah, that's actually the same info I found in said research.  Too bad such a beautiful creature ended up gaining all that weight, though.  a-hard-days-night-paul-10  I couldn't find much on Maggie Wright, however; other than the fact that, like Mandy, she continued on as a bit-part actress throughout the '70s (though apparently quit acting in the early '80s), and, last heard from, lives in Thailand with her husband and adopted Malaysian daughter where they also run a bar.  a-hard-days-night-john-7

I never thought this movie was good, yet I watched it twice.

Once last year, and once when the BBC special about it was on, which was like..a bit over a month ago?

 

I thought it was quite boring. The spaghetti scene, the magician scenes and the music parts were good though. Except for BJW. I thought that was a bit..creepy.

The entire movie is just, well, creepy and random. The nice part about it was that the Beatles seemed happy in the movie, and the music made it all worthwhile. stay-on-topic

I've still never seen the movie the whole way through, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching McCartney's "Director's Commentary."

 He gives us his take on the various scenes in the movie, and with his now grandfatherly voice, it's like you're a kid on your grandfather's lap as he takes you to a land of whimsy and fantasy.

It´s probably on youtube Linde but if you have the newest version of the dvd (2012), then it´s on there.
