I wish that MMT had a plot

It would be pretty cool if it actually did. When I was watching it, I was so confused. One second, John was falling asleep, and the next second, “Flying ” starts playing and there was lots of colors. It would’ve been nice if they tied together to make some sense to a normal watcher. But, in the end, that’s how it turned out, and it was their decision, so I’m not going to call crap on them

Maybe if they had a contest to find a Beatle fan to write the script.

Agreed.  But seeing that their manager had just died and Macca was trying to keep the band together, they really weren’t in a right mindset.  It’s too bad, it really could have gone down as classic if just planned a little better. The songs were great.

I will watch this movie just because the music videos to go with the songs are pretty cool.  The acting and script in between songs is a bit too “out there” for me.

I was wondering how would the Beatles be different if this film was a popular success?

Maybe they would have become wealthy.

This was one of the first things they did after Brian Epstein died.  Many have speculated that if Brian was still alive and actively managing the group, he would have had them hire a skilled director and a writer to create a real script.

You are all my friends.

Shame they didn’t bother to try before filming ‘MMT’.

I wonder if getting an average fanfiction writer to write the screenplay would of improved things?

I watched it only today coz I was so bored, y’see. I got even more bored after watching that, apart from Little Nicola and John…that was just too precious. 

Oh, and John’s reaction after the stripper scene is just ROFL worthy, while George’s face was like “He isn’t with me” a-hard-days-night-john-6

In short, I just couldn’t make out the head & tail of it.

Maybe, but there would be far more Lennon-McCartney sex scenes.

I’ve tried watching Broad Street three different occasions and it as so boring I fell asleep halfway through it each time, though I woke up just in time to see the end the last time and I quite enjoyed the end. The Silly Love Songs part is cool too.

I kind of liked Broad Street. Seen it twice, thought it was cute. a-hard-days-night-paul-5 Is it a great film? Nope. I still enjoyed it, though.

Just saw this film. Wow it’s out there. The scene with Victor Spinetti yelling in complete gibberish – I can’t make it through with a straight face. The split second pose for a smiley photo did me in. The “marathon” scene that is complete and utter chaos (as is the entirety of the movie). Ringo’s obviously-overdubbed dialogue as he’s driving the bus. George playing with the balloon making silly noises. The drunk singing scene bits on the bus with the accordion. It all looked like a lot of fun =D

A few of my favorite quotes…

“Where’s the bus!?”

“I was half an hour looking for the sugar!”

“Can you tell us what’s next on the agenda?” “A Song!”

“I got a love-a-ley bunch of coconuts…”

I didn’t catch everything but it’s past 1am at this point and I need sleep. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6
