^^ I think they're that thing that films have in them. I think you click on them or something and it plays a part of the film that you don't see if you don't click on it, or something.

Easter Eggs... Am I missing something?

They're "hidden" extras on DVDs and Blu-rays. You have to dig around to highlight the portal that'll take them to you. Click on that Examiner link, it mentions the goodies in the MMT one.

Thanks, I'll watch them!

I Googled Easter eggs and I discovered that typing

=rand(insert number here, insert number here)

in a Word document and then pressing enter generates a bunch of paragraphs that are apparently Word instructions or something.

And

=rand.old(insert number here, insert number here)

and then pressing enter generates the sentence "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" many times.

How strange. I got "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" numberous times depending on the values i put in in the brackets. I presume its some kind of test to ensure that all the letters of the English album are present and correct.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I think it depends on what version of Word you have. For me, =rand.old(number, number) generates the sentence you got, and =rand(number, number) generates the Word instructions.

Try =lorem(number, number) and translate it! :) (See my post above yours.)

And I think the text that appears is sample text so whoever is using Word can see what the text will look like when they finish typing whatever they're typing.

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'.

Yeah I agree with you on that. I probably would've liked YS a lot more if they had done their own voices. I'm not too crazy about MMT either though. It COULD'VE been a lot better than it is, really.

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.

My favorite scene in that movie was with that little girl and John and George on the bus. The movie should not be taken seriously. I started screaming I first watched it because I didn't get it. I saw it again and just laughed. It's an absurd film. But it's the Beatles doing what they do best: being creative.

I agree with everything in this post.

I don't remember if I posted about this movie or not, but I really liked it the first time I saw it.  I don't know what all the fuss is about, but I can imagine it wouldn't be as good on a black and white TV, which is how it was first seen.

I really love movies that have no plot and are just funny and bizarre like this. My favorite scene is the "Death Cab For Cutie" performance just because the song is so awesome and it is so random.

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

I actually like it. I think if you watch it not as a movie, but just as something that's meant to be surreal and pointless, it's quite a fun movie

Sounds like a plan!

My bluray is on the way from Amazon UK as we write - can't wait.

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.
