One time I watched this movie and then "Yellow Submarine" right after, and I can say that I actually MMT more than YS. If the Beatles actually voiced their characters in YS and had funnier parts, it would have been better. Whenever I watch MMT, i'm like "Hey dad, let's watch a movie!" and he's like "Okay! What movie?" and I say "Magical Mystery Tour, of course!" and he says, "Oh, nooo". He's a big Beatles fan like me but he really doesn't like MMT.

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

I think that a "Yellow Submarine" with actual Beatle voices (and maybe the faithful Victor Spinetti doing the voice of the Chief Blue Meanie!) would possibly be my favourite Beatles movie of all! Especially if they managed to work in a sequence mixing an actual live-action Beatles performance with their animated versions playing horns and whatnot.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

I bought the DVD the other day, I had only seen the movie.  

I'm watching the extras, and I just finished watching the other version of "The Fool On The Hill"...  my life is now complete. Holy shit. a-hard-days-night-paul-7 

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

It's just too absurd for me. I enjoy the "I Am The Walrus" video, but the rest of the film is a bore. I didn't like Help! either. Though A Hard Day's Night is fantastic.

It pains me to admit it but it's not a very good film. I can watch it and enjoy it because, come on, it's the Beatles! And I do like the music segments (especially I Am The Walrus and The Fool On The Hill) and I like the bits with John and little Nicola and the drunken singalong. However, it goes nowhere and really drags in places. John and George are hardly in it and nothing especially "magical" actually happens. I do own it and will watch from time to time, but it's not a patch on A Hard Days Night and Help

I got the boxset that came out last year and its really nice; furthermore, I especially love that it came with a double ep. Its is not my go to Beatle film though. I can watch A Hard Day's Night or Help anytime, but I hardly watch Magical Mystery Tour. The first time I watched it (before I bought the boxset) I thought it was terrible; however, now I can enjoy it when I do watch though and really love the musical numbers. Yellow Submarine took some time to grow on me too.

Watched this today and nothings changed. The songs are great (tho would have preferred countryside footage instead of the coloured skies with Flying), the filler is still pretty garbage (the sergeant scene, Jessie and Bloodvessel on the beach), the stripper scene remains creepy and uncomfortable (even tho Death Cab For Cutie is a good song). Ringo is the star, John and Little Nicola a standout scene.

Interesting to actually be able to see that they are miming to an early take/mix of Your Mother Should Know (more than likely the acetate that got bootlegged years ago), you can tell by a-hard-days-night-john-3.

The instrumental versions of She Loves You and All My Loving are so sweet.
