  Best Beatles Movie

| | See all Trefusis's reviews (243)

The most satisfying Beatles movie by virtue of the fact they're not in it; save for a cameo at the end, the voices are provided by actors so you're not constantly being drawn out of the narrative by wooden acting.

Musically it's a mixed bag; there are a few classics, but the new songs written for the movie are nothing special.

It's very much a product of the 60s, but the animation is serviceable, and the plot allows for plenty of interesting visuals, songs and one-liners. If you're a Beatles fan or are looking for a kid's film that's a little different to Disney fare, then this is definitely worth a look.

  Upgraded Yellow Submarine - Yellower yellows in Pepperland!

| | See all Chuffed's reviews (40)

The blu ray add a more vibrant picture and sharper sound to a much loved animation classic that really adds an extra layer to the inventiveness of the film. The Blu Ray release differs from the previous DVD release as it lacks the music only track but includes lots more promotional extras such as posters and stills included in the blu ray packaging. Having owned the previous dvd this is a great improvement on the print and looks fabulous on all HD televisions the only major gripe is the cardboard packaging that gets tatty quick - a steelbook would have been amazing but would really liked the plastic case to keep this classic movie protected (thats why it has not been given five stars).
