Which of the movies is your favorite? Personally, my favorite is Help! I like A Hard Days Night, too, but Help! just blew me away. I wonder if Ringo still has that ring... any idea where I can get one lol

I've never actually seen a Beatles movie. What are they about? (I read the comic-type thing in the Magical Mystery Tour booklet, but what about the other ones?)

You can see them both on youtube (I'll link), but Help! is about some group of people who are into sacrifice (weird...), but they can't do it without a sacrificial ring. Well, guess who has it xD So a good portion of the movie is Ringo running for his life, but they all seem to have a good time anyways. You can watch it here:

A Hard Days Night is about the group performing on live TV. It opens with them running away from a large group of girls and hopping onto a train. When they get into their seats, there is an old man there. John asks who he is, and apparently it's Paul's grandfather, who is responsible for, like, everything bad that happens in the movie. You can watch it here:

Yellow Submarine, well, is about a yellow submarine. Need I say any more?

Watch them, you will LOVE them.

I watched about an hour of A Hard Day's Night. It made no sense. I couldn't follow it at all. I didn't get one bit of it.

It was hilarious. I loved it!!!!!!! I will watch the rest soon!

:D

If you watched AHDN and didn´t understand, I wonder what you'll think of MMT!?

I love A Hard Day's Night and it's in my top 3 of favourite films, cheers me right up when I'm Down it does. Something about their surprise at Beatlemania and their (relatively) newness (?) to it all. Oh yeah, and their so funny on it!

Yellow Submarine's my favourite, although I do wish the Beatles had voiced themselves. Help! has some great parts but is a bit silly, overlong and badly acted for me. I STILL haven't seen A Hard Day's Night, it's like there's a hole in my life. Just never get round to buying or watching it.

Looking at it again, the Beatles' films are the one aspect of their career that I don't really like at all. If it counts as one, I'd say Let It Be is probably my favourite; obviously it's quite a heavy, depressing watch, but give me real footage of the Beatles making music and having genuine conversations any day rather than them playing caricatures of themselves, unenthusiastically delivering lines from an absurd, hackneyed script. In fairness I haven't seen AHDN, which is supposed to be their best, so I may revise this opinion when I finally see it.

A Hard Day's Night is a little hard to follow at first, but I got it after watching it twice. The movie is very humorous, and the Beatles were so young and cute! Help is too long, MMT is God knows what, the Beatles had little to do with Yellow Submarine, and Let It Be showed them breaking up. So A Hard Day's Night is my favorite. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

I am not favorite Beatles movie, no.a-hard-days-night-george-10

My favorite Beatles movie is Help!, then Magical Mystery Tour, AHDN, Yellow Submarine, and Let It Be. It's super close between Help!, Magical Mystery Tour and AHDN, though.

Help! is super funny. It's just so random and there are so many good lines. I seriously love every part of the movie. If people try to talk to me when I'm watching this movie, I just can't. There are so many funny parts in the movie if I'm talking to somebody for a second, I'll look back at the movie and realize I missed one of my favorite parts.

Magical Mystery Tour really doesn't make any sense at all. There are a couple times in the movie where it seems like it's about to end, but it doesn't. It doesn't seem to flow very well from scene to scene either, but that's what makes it so great. My favorite part is Aunt Jessie's dream. John looks like such a creep, and that spaghetti he's giving her looks pretty gross. I never liked this movie before, but when I got the fancy new boxed edition, I realized how much I actually love it.

AHDN is also pretty funny, and probably their most quotable movie. They're all so cute in this one, too. I don't understand how this one is hard to follow, I think it's their easiest to follow movie.

Yellow Submarine drags a little at times. It's cute and all, but I don't think it's very funny. I do like the pictures and all the colors, though. The only part of Yellow Submarine I really love is the end when The Beatles are in it, before they go into All Together Now.

Let It Be is a little depressing, and it's hard to understand. They all look so dirty, too, except maybe George. I like the rooftop concert, and there are some cute parts, but overall it's a pretty terrible movie. I haven't seen it in a couple years though, so maybe if I watched it again I would like it more than I remember.

I watched the rest of it, thought about it, and realized that it was actually quite easy to follow. I don't think I was thinking when I said it was hard to follow.

My favorite scene in AHDN:

"Hey, mister, can we have our ball back?!"

End scene.

One of my favorite parts from AHDN is when George is shaving the mirror.

Its daft how you cant go into a highstreet store and buy a new copy of AHDN. Walked all around Glasgow trying to get a copy and failed.

I havent watched a beatles film in ages but i'd probably go for Help! just ahead of AHDN. I like the zanyness of it and the strange parts like the tiger in the cellar and the intermission. Plus the music scenes are really good.

Help! > A Hard Day's Night > Yellow Submarine > Magical Mystery Tour

I've only seen about an hour of Let It Be (Up to the bit where John quips "Isadora Duncan worked for Telefunken" and Macca is singing to Heather), though from what I've seen, I'd probably place it between AHDN and YS. It's kind of a downer, but it's really not as bad as it's made out to be (At least from what I saw). I was expecting a lot more anger/fighting from what I'd heard over the years.

My favourite is AHDN becuase its fun, fluffy, simple, the boys are having a great time and it has some great lines in it ("Hey Mister, can we have our ball back?", "Sir, sir, can I have one to surgery sir?", "No Paulie, don't mock the afflicted,", ALL of the interview scene).

Help's OK -I love the Beatle bachelor pad- but the plot is unrealistic and silly, and you can tell that the Beatles are bored throughout (Geroge looks fed up the whole time).

Personally, I only like Magical Mystery Tour for the music scenes (I Am The Walrus is awesome, and the arrangement of All My Loving is simply beautiful george-martin)

Yellow Submarine's alright, and Let It Be is fascinating but I can't say I like it because it is so, so sad.
