John's joke "The Bottles!" is just the best joke of the year and I wish I'd thought of it when I was about 5 so I could say I was first. john-lennon-salute_gif

Obviously it looks incredible and it's nice to hear a different edit of 'Get Back '. I'm going to try and really enjoy it regardless of how it's done as we are getting the original film as well - will see how it goes.

A couple of comments on what's been posted above.

Apple are not going to put up a montage where they show the four looking bored, fed-up and pissed off. No film ever would regardless of the topic as it would put folk off from wanting to see it. Obviously it could very well turn into the story of the four best friends having 28 days of hilarity but here is not the place any misery is going to be seen. The video doesn't even include anything from Twickenham from what I saw, I could be wrong

There is no benefit to having Paul swear as then warnings and age certificates come into place, only the hardcore and more knowledgeable fans will even know it's been edited out. Apple have also been editing swearing out of their releases for years; for example, they took out John saying "Oh shit! Wrong chord!' from the beginning of the 'Happiness Is A Warm Gun ' demo on the 50th anniversary box. You can even compare the three anniversary sets to the amount of swearing John does on the recordings on the 'Imagine ' set to see how different it is or even the Anthology discs. We know the Beatles swore as one listen to the excerpts from the 'Sexy Sadie ' session shows it as John does when recording 'One After 909 ' in 1963, Paul on take 6 of 'ADITL', George at the end of the 'Penny Lane ' outtake and it is buried on 'Hey Jude '.

I saw the sneak peak of Get Back on YouTube.  My main impression of this compared with the original Let it Be movie is that John seems much more engaged and happy in this version.  My memory of him in the Let it Be movie was that he stayed mostly quiet, off to the side with Yoko, and seemed somewhat uninterested and even impatient at times in dealing with Paul and his ideas.  Almost like he was basically phoning it in.  In this preview he seemed much more involved, and like an old friend joking around with his mates. 

Maybe Jackson, knowing what we know now, wanted more of a spotlight on John than what we got before.  Whereas Lindsey-Hogg wanted more of a spotlight on Paul, who was more engaged with the project?  My impression from the Let it Be movie was that Paul was rather overbearing.  I kind of resented Paul for a time after that, but I later realized that it was Paul who had to drag the Beatles over the finish line, as the others had checked out to some degree.

They released a preview on Disney+ recently.  I don't belive I can post a link, but if you have Disney+ and you log on it should be on the front page.

Ah, it might help if I back go back to the previous page to actually get the context of the previous posts instead of just ignoring them due to a non-understanding of the context.....

You are. There's lots. All the shots with a coloured lighting backing - purple, yellow, green, red - or plain concrete walls, are Twickenham. If the flooring is green carpet, Savile Row; if it's concrete, Twickenham. The long distance shots of them sitting in the round from the other end of Twickenham. There's even a shot of Paul halfway up a rope hanging from the ceiling at Twickenham, and he's about one floor up - not the type of height available at Savile Row.

My take. Those five minutes we've been allowed to see are the only scenes that Peter Jackson et al. could find of the band getting on. The rest of the film will just be the four looking bored, fed-up and pissed off...

I'm eager to see Get Back , it seems like the original Let it Be movie was very poorly put together.  The only thing that concerns me is if, by trying to show a more fun and pleasant atmosphere between the Beatles, they end up with inferior music sections as a result.  I have mixed feelings about The Lord of the Rings movies, and even more mixed feelings about The Hobbit trilogy, but Peter Jackson did probably as good a job as could be done adapting Tolkien's LOTR.  For some reason, I trust him with this project.

I do too. He’s a genuine fan and can’t be accused of not putting in effort when he’s helming a project.

In the Peter Jackson Get Back "sneak preview" where JL says that "Beatle George may face French Jail" at 1 min .36 seconds, I have managed to find out that this was from January 21st, and that the scene- contains a portion of "Improvisation" from DDSI 21.18.

Does anyone know where this can be found (Get Back Journals/Day by Day/ Camera B rolls etc), and on which disc? Thanks in advance.
