AHDN>HELP!>Magical Mystery Tour>Yellow Submarine>Let it Be

 

I don't consider Yellow Submarine as an actually Beatle movie, but it's certainly better than Let it Be. AHDN is a really good movie even if it's in monochrome, I prefer it over Help! because AHDN is more witty than it. Magical Mystery Your for the "music videos"

Well if anthology counts anthology, when not definitely let it be although i have only seen parts of Magical Mystery Tour (in anthology) and those were awesome. I have seen the other three ones (help, a hard days night and yellow submarine) and I think they are also great

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!

Absolutely AHDN. The humor, the absurdity, the ingenious camera angles, love it all. The music video shows in the 80s used to play "Can't Buy Me Love" since it was a ready-made video.

Close 2nd is Yellow Submarine. Funny thing, I don't like the live action bit with the boys in the end, but I love everything else about it.

  1. AHDN
  2. Help!
  3. Yellow Sub
  4. Magical Mystery Tour
  5. Let It Be

It took me a few tries to understand Yellow Sub and MMT and Let It Be I just can't finish because I get fed up with the arguing.

  • AHDN - Can't see this one enough.
  • Yellow Submarine - A very close second. This could have been my number 1 if they used their own voices.
  • HELP! - Goofy, yes. But I like it anyway.
  • Magical Mystery Tour - Basically a home movie with some awesome music thrown in.
  • Let It Be - Never saw the whole thing all the way through in one sitting, so it is last by default.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

If they had used their own voices in Yellow Submarine, I would've liked it a lot more. The voices kinda ruin it for me. 

AHDN and Help are both #1 for me. Gaaaahhh I'm going to watch them again.

I'm so old, I remember sitting in a movie theater (alone) in 1987 watching Let It Be, and right behind me were a whole gaggle of young girls probably no older than 15 or 16 -- so that means they were too young to really "know" the Beatles and were likely discovering them nearly for the first time.  I just buried myself down in my seat and enjoyed the movie (for the second time, as I had seen it a few years prior), but also had fun listening to the girls' running commentary.

Now those girls are middle aged!

I am going to watch "Yellow Submarine" tonight, which I have only seen pieces of, then I will rank them all.  a-hard-days-night-paul-8  I really have nothing better to do, so I may as well be entertained!  ahdn_paul_01

I can't follow MMT at all, but I love it anyways. The movie is a bit like Revolution 9 in that it's completely random.

I just bought the Magical Mystery Tour DVD, and I plan to watch it soon.

Is it appropriate for little kids (like my sister)?

Ok so I watched Yellow Submarine last night (as it was intended to be watched...  nicely toasted a-hard-days-night-john-1).  It was exactly what I expected:  Weird, Visually pleasing, and chock full of great Beatles music.  LOVED the live action at the end, wish there had been more of that.  It was hard at times to get past the fake voices.  The only one they got close in my opinion was John.  

Oh and one other thing...  why did they make Paul's character..  for lack of a better word..  so gay?  a-hard-days-night-paul-5

 

So now I will rate them.

 

#1)  "Help!"  I really enjoy this one.  Like all of their movies its quirky, entertaining, and full of great music.  Being in colour makes it more enjoyable too.  

#2) "A Hard Days Night"  It's a really close second.  I like to use John's line on my spouse all the time, "Give us a kiss".  a-hard-days-night-john-1

 

#3)  "Magical Mystery Tour"  The only reason it is third is because it's shorter, and that's pretty much it.  Even though it's totally random and ridiculous, I find it very entertaining.  Fool on the Hill melts my heart every time.  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

 

#4)  "Let it Be"  Although it is kinda depressing, it is also very realistic to what was going on at that time.  I am a big fan of documentaries, so that helps.

 

#5)  "Yellow Submarine"  Although it was entertaining, it has to go last, seeing as it's not really them.  Still great though.

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Re: Help!

Probably forum members who are from the UK and environs would know this: There was a popular TV crime drama (quite popular -- it lasted some 14 years, from 1978-1992) out of the UK called Rumpole of the Bailey, and the main character "Horace Rumpole", a "barrister" (as they call lawyers in the UK), was none other than the Bond-villain in Help! named "Clang" -- played by actor Leo McKern.  (He was also one of the bad guys on the great 1967-68 spy TV show The Prisoner.)

A Hard Day's Night would be my choice. This was a great put together movie with many high moments and set the standard for a lot of other movies in that genre. The Marx Brothers comedy was excellent.

@Egroeg Evoli It's totally appropriate. I mean, there's one scene that's weird... like, really weird, but it's totally fine. 

 

Fool on the Hill and Your Mother Should Know were amazing! Fool on the Hill especially. I hadn't heard the song until that point, and it sounds a lot like me... and Ron Paul, but that's another story entirely ahdn_paul_01

Sorry, but I'm going to be a little deviant here. I decided the criteria here was to name the film that most connects with your appreciation of the group. Therefore, my favourite Beatles movie is The Rutles' All You Need Is Cash.

Watched Help! again last night.  So good.  I really like Victor Spinetti's character in the movie.

a-hard-days-night-john-1 And I love the part when he has the gun, John grabs a lamp, goes to hit him, he fires the gun and it has no bullet's.  John says "Get Out."  Don't know why, just love it.  heart

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"
