I think my favourite is Help !, but I also love Yellow Submarine , which is the first I watched (but not much time ago!)

And I can say that now I appreciate Magical Mystery Tour a lot more, but I remember the first time thinking "what the #### did I just watch??" (that day I had purchased both MMT and Living In The Material World documentary - both at the same price :roll: and... well, I thought "was it really worth it? Less than 1 hour of ...weird stuff, but it's an official Beatles movie, so...") :D

Same here, with that first-time thing. I hope I come to like it as you did. :)

Same here too. I've seen it two or three times now and I like it a lot better than the first time. I'm still not too crazy about it though.

I can't decide between "A Hard Day's Night " or "Help !" Both are great movies.

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

I would rank them thusly:

A Hard Day's Night

Yellow Submarine

Magical Mystery Tour

Let it Be

Help !

Help ! just seemed too corny, like a B-grade 60's comedy. I loved Magical Mystery Tour on first viewing, especially the scene with the song "Death Cab For Cutie."  A Hard Day's Night was genuinely funny, with lots of charm and enthusiasm.

In order:

1) A Hard Day's Night

2) Help !

3) Yellow Submarine

4) The Concert for Bangladesh

5) Let it Be

Magical Mystery Tour is in the mail so I can't comment just yet.  And as to number 4, yes, I know, but it has 2 Beatles and a few 1/2 Beatles in it :)

A Fiendish Thingy said (in another thread, now locked)
The Sgt. Pepper movie is great in a horrible way! You've gotta admit, that Peter Frampton has some... nice... physical traits. a-hard-days-night-paul-2

Joe said (ditto)
I've never seen the Sgt Pepper film, though I've yet to read a positive word about it.

I just finished watching Sgt Pepper movie for the 1st & last time.  The only great thing about this movie is the Beatles music. Bad thing about this movie is The Bee Gees & Peter Frampton singing The Beatles music.  Alice Cooper doesn't do justice singing a song, Steve Martin even worse, and we all know Aerosmith's version of Come Together is good.

Lots and lots of stars are in the final Sgt Pepper reprise (google it).

This is similar to the Across The Universe  musical movie, but nowhere as good (in my opinion).

Now I can say I've seen it, but will never watch it again...... paul-mccartney

So far, I've seen A Hard Day's Night twice, and Magical Mystery Tour once. I've seen a very short bit of Sgt. Pepper , and I hated it with a passion. Even Paul's cameo couldn't make up for the atrocious BeeGees performance, so I vowed never to even give it another try!

 

From the clips I've seen on YT, Help ! seems quite cool. The DVD is pretty expensive, but I might buy it after all. I don't know if Yellow Submarine is available here, but I'd like to see it even though I know the lads didn't do the voices.

 

I think that's all of them, right?

Was Paul in the Sgt Pepper atrocity? Never knew that. Would have thought that he would have kept away considering Wings had been so huge.

Yes, he's in the audience. for just a second, during Mr. Kite. Rumoured, at least. Looks like him to me, but who knows?

I love Help ! It's, in my opinion, the best comedy ever, and the best movie ever made. Ringo is adorable, just in general, but also in the movie. It has some of the best quotes in history, such as "It's a fiendish thingie!" and so on. AND DON'T FORGET JOHN'S BED IN THE FLOOR!!!! I need one of those, seriously.

My fave Beatles movie is Help !  I sometimes wonder if the younger fans even realize that it's a James Bond parody.  I do hope so, but maybe some haven't seen the old Sean Connery movies.

As for documentaries, my favorite is The Compleat Beatles.  I recommend you see it if you haven't already.  It's very well done and is narrated by Malcolm McDowell.

If I were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring one album with me, it would be Revolver. 

I just hope that I would have some means of playing it.  Ha ha!

My favorite is A Hard Day's Night .  I like the Yellow Submarine and Help ! as well, but I watch these two movies for a movie experience and I watch AHDN as a fun time with The Beatles.

I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I actually prefer The Compleat Beatles to Anthology.  To me, Anthology is way too long and convoluted.  The Compleat Beatles is concise and very well made.  The interviews with George Martin are priceless.  Also, Malcolm McDowell's narration is excellent!

I just found it online yesterday and downloaded it.  It's a safe file and is 512MB in size.  I don't want to post the link here as I think the webmaster might object. 

It's so great to have it again since it is not available anymore.

If you'd like it, do a Google search.  It's on a site called "not very pretty music."  If you're already aware of this, simply disregard this post.
