I saw a film today, oh, boy...

 

Don't shoot me but, Magical Mystery Tour is a horrible film. I have to fast-forward it to the musical parts. I'm so badly impressed with it that I wish I didn't see it.

 

Opinions?

The following people thank Marcelo for this post:

I loved the whole movie, mainly because it was summer when I first watched it. It seems more of a summerish movie than a christmas movie.

I haven't seen it, but my siblings watched it in parts on YouTube. I've seen the "I Am The Walrus" video more times than I can count, though.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Ooo, too bad. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

If anyone is interested, it looks like there's a site for the Magical Mystery Tour Revisited fan edit. At the moment, it has ... cover art. I hope there's more soon.

I agree, it is quite pointless and mostly unfollowable, but it's fun to watch when you have nothing to do.

In The Beatles: Unseen Archive book I own, It says they made Magical Mystery Tour because of Brian Epsteins  Death of a drug overdose, So after discussing their future (since he was their band manager for those who have no idea who this mystical Brian is —-> brian-epstein) They Decided to make something 'magical' and it was harshly reviewed by the critics. At least doing MMT helped lift their spirits, am I right? a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

 

Anyways, unless I read it wrong, thats what the book told me.

Ok I just saw the movie.

 

What did the Beatles smoke to do this?? I agree with Marcelo. The only bits I enjoyed were the musical bits, I liked Flying. And not enough George. blue-meanie

 

Edit : I forgot to mention. The only part that truly made me laugh was George and John's reaction to the striptease... and then Your Mother Should Know.. I was like "WTF???" It was so silly that I started laughing like crazy LOL!!!

It's interesting, makes you think a bit and, like Paul said, in no other place can you see John Lennon perform I Am The Walrus, so that's good enough for me I suppose.

Hahahahaha! 

I'm going to go watch that video now.

And then I'll watch the "Your Mother Should Know" video.

Parts like the Sargeant sketch are a bore and the stripper scene with George, John and others leering over a woman stripping is nothing short of creepy. Therefore i avoid it.

The music videos are good, apart from Blue Jay Way which seems to drag, with IATW being the deserved highlight, one reason being that it matches the song really well instead of it being just anything to fill 4 minutes.
