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.

I think I'm going to change mine to a tie between Help! and A Hard Days Night, their just to good.

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 :)

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

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?
