(I'm sure this topic has already been discussed, but I SWEAR I looked)

But yeah, I just saw this movie yesterday, and I'm wondering what other people thought of it.

Um, I saw it about 8 months ago, I think. My Mom recorded it when it was on TV in the late 80's. It was good, but I loved the end of the movie, when Yoko was alone. That I loved. I think now I'll have to find that old VHS. I can't remember that much, honestly.

In a "Mwuhahaha! That will teach you for breaking up the Beatles!" way or a "aaaaaaaah, poor Yokopaul-mccartney" way?

I quite liked it. i love the interview scenes with Sean and Julian though. The first time I saw it, I cried at the end when they started talking about him getting shot. Sorry no matter how many times I hear, it always chokes me up. But it is a good documentary.

It's the reason why I like How Do You Sleep... a-hard-days-night-paul-4 sorry Paul.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

I just saw this at a special showing recently (and on an IMAX screen no less!). I found it really interesting and thought the interviews with Cynthia were particularly heartbreaking. The scene's with John and Yoko doing the bed-in's were pretty fascinating though. I couldn't believe the entire exchange between them and Al Capp who couldn't have been more condescending and insulting, especially towards Yoko. The movie left me feeling a bit depressed after, but overall it was nice to learn more about John and Yoko.

Here's the Al Capp interview:

My thoughts on Imagine ...I wish I had seen it before Anthology, because it used a lot of the same footage. I enjoyed the part where the guy was tripping outside in the bushes and John invited him in for dinner.

I enjoyed that part as well. Though I can't imagine something like that happening in today's world!
