My mother watched it. She says it's two hours she will never get back. Ever. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I got sent a review copy. I sat down and took notes, and about an hour in I'd filled both sides of a sheet of A4 noting all the inaccuracies. I then turned it off and did something more rewarding with my life.

It's obviously fiction, but I found it quite insulting and hurtful. The idea that George dictated this fantasy stuff on his deathbed is really unnecessary, and it was clearly a cynical attempt to make a quick buck. I didn't bother writing the review - it didn't deserve the publicity. Whoever made it was a bunch of chancers.

Just by seeing the title of the movie I know I wouldn't watch it. (Maybe if it was a comedy making fun of the really far-fetched clues, I would.) I sometimes look at the clues on youtube for fun, but if they are trying to make money off a dead person, that's just sick. I wouldn't waste my time, but who knows, I haven't seen it.

Would Olivia and Dhani sue? They could probably get a defamation case, or something else (It all depends where they would sue, in what the case is considered). But the big question is, Would They? I say no.

What really irritates me is that iTunes is selling this DVD in the iTunes music store for $14.99 to buy and $3.99 to rent.

I would think since they secured the entire Beatles catalog which is an honor to have, that they would be more selective regarding titles they make available especially when it involves the Fab Four.

I know. I am really surprised. I love iTunes. I have 16,000 songs in my library but sometimes they make stupid decisions.

I'd like to imagine that the fact that iTunes is selling this is ideally an indicator of just how unseriously they (and by extension, George's estate, etc.) are taking it - that it's so ridiculous that they can't even be bothered to take steps to block it, because to do so would acknowledge its existence. And that anybody likely to buy it and take it seriously deserves to waste their money.(But that's a best-case scenario at best.)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I Agree, that is very curious. You wonder if many new Beatles fans will watch it and take it seriously. We can all just hope for the best. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Money is why they are selling it. They will make money, and that's all they care about.

I know the argument has already possible been settled, but I want to add my own opinion, which probably will be long...

PAUL IS NOT DEAD!!!

He lives and shall reign the musical world. I mean, here are some of the things that people claim for the fact that Paul is "dead".

1) September 9th, 1966-- I'm not sure about you, but if he died on that day, weren't they recording an album at that time? Google it or something, but they were busy. And if he died in the middle of a London street, the press would have caught a whiff of it soon enough.

2) Paul McCartney Really Is Dead--It's a documentary also known as the Last Testament of George Harrison. The George voice can kiss my butt. The proof was horrible and bogus. He was off his time line. And George would know, since he was the one that wrote it, that "Only A Northern Song" was his own song. The voice really seems to be narrating the pictures in it, and it was a little too rehearsed sounding. Watch the movie if you like.

3) John can't keep a secret to save his life--Jesus/God. His nakedness. The "N"-word. Politics. Gosh John, those are some pretty major things John... Now keeping his best friend for life's death would count under that, right? He would have said something a lot sooner than George supposedly did (see # 2).

4) 28IF--Have you seen Abbey Road? Where people say that it said "28IF" on a license plate to show that Paul would have been twenty-eight if he lived. Now tell me, when was this album released? 1969, you say? That's funny...Paul was born in 1942. Do the math people.

5) Rubber Paul-- Rubber Paul? I thought he died in 1966? If they are saying that Rubber Paul was really the name for Rubber Soul, then "George" might have forgotten the fact that the album came out in 1965.

6) Open palms over Paul's head-- *sigh* At least they know he's Catholic.

7) "I Am The Walrus"-- More like "this is the bull". John was the original walrus, the Paul, then John until he became John again. He's the one that wore it on the album cover!

8) "Taxidermist"- Apparently that is the original name for "Taxman". Did they want to stuff a dead Paul for the mantle? Gross.

9) Back masking-- Anyone ever thing that Yoko and John probably wrote this song to mess with Paul? "Revolution 9", I mean. Or when John says "Cranberry sauce", just remember his type of humor.

10) 2011-1966=45!!!-- Whoever has been Paul for the past 45 years must be more talented than the original Paul.

The following people thank Till There Was You for this post:

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.
