Nothing Is Real.
The Blue Meanies take over Pepperland, draining it of all its color and music, firing anti-music missiles, bonking people with green apples, and turning the inhabitants to stone by way of the pointed finger of a giant white glove. As the only survivor, the Lord Admiral escapes in the yellow submarine and goes to London to enlist the help of the Beatles.
I judge people by what they say about The Beatles.
Film #13 of the "Scavenger Hunt" Challenge!
Task #13 : A film with a color in the title!
Color : Yellow.
This is one of the greatest psychedelic, surreal movies that I've ever seen! It's weird and makes no sense at all but it's effin awsome!
The animation is so witty. Some may say that it is a good example of style over substance, but that's OK if the style we're talking about is unforgettable, right?
This movie just rolls flawlessly and features songs that define rock music.
Yellow Submarine is a must-see for psychodelia and Beatles fans. I love both of them, so I enjoy this one a lot.
It isn't a film; it is an experience. 93/100
I am the ego man, goo goo ga choo.
If you're going to watch an animated musical featuring The Beatles it would probably help if you're a fan of their music. That's nothing unique to this film though, whether or not you like the music in any musical is going to effect your viewing experience.
The movie's characters and character designs are extremely charming and The Beatles themselves are constantly poking fun at themselves. There's a scene where Ringo ends up ejected from the Yellow Submarine and the group's first instinct is to figure out how to go on without him (Learn to sing trios) before Paul finally interjects with "Naw, let's save the poor devil".
The animation borrows…
There really is only one way to watch this.
Next to no care about The Beatles before watching this, but after tripping balls throughout the entire running time I had a newfound appreciation for their music.

favorite character: Ringo by Paul Angelis
Rewatched this for the first time since I was very young, when I literally watched it at least once a day and frequently more. It's fucking imaginative as shit. The magic is still there.
There really is only one way to watch this.
If Ralph Bakshi, Luis Bunuel and Vincent Minnelli collaborated on a family movie, it might look something like this.
It's an extraordinary achievement. Deeply and genuinely surreal and subversive. Hypnagogic, hallucinatory and hugely enjoyable.
Can I have a little more?
The Beatles ride In a yellow submarine to save Pepperland and to get rid of a bunch of villians called The Blue Meanies
Wow, I just recently watched The Yellow Submarine, and it is so weird but I love it at the same time! The Beatles are my favorite band, and Paul McCartney is my favorite musician, so I was really excited to watch the Yellow Submarine. The Yellow Submarine is basically an hour and a half long music video, and it's probably one of the most entertaining and bizarre films I have seen a long time. It's full of trippy images, and a montage of some of the Beatles best songs, like When I'm Sixty Four, Elenor Rigby and…
The Yellow Submarine is a music video. It's a feature length music video. There's nothing deep or poignant or rich about it in any way, so, why does it work as a film and have all the acclaim it has gotten? Passion. Yellow Submarine oozes passion. The animation, while easily not the best I've ever seen, is very innovative. The soundtrack is one of the best of all time. The Beatles themselves are so likeable that you end up caring about their ludicrous adventures throughout the film. Apparently when this film came out, hippies would go to this and 2001: A Space Odyssey high and lay on the floor to stimulate an experience, and this actually made both films a…
This is one of those movies I watch every few years and still keep managing to notice things that I didn't before. This was my first exposure to the Beatles and is a childhood favorite of mine, with great picks for the soundtrack, a unique brand of comedy, and an experience that's just plain fun.
If Fantasia and the old Warner Bros. cartoons had a baby that was adopted by The Beatles and friends with The Dude, Yellow Submarine would be the trippy result. If any of that sounds as amazing to you as it does to me, I highly suggest you hunt this one down. Like Fantasia, the combination of the incredible, colorful, and imaginative imagery and music completely suck you into the places this movie goes. However, in between there, there is a story, which is that the Blue Meanies have invaded Pepperland and it's up to The Beatles to hop into a Yellow Submarine to save the day. Ultimately, the plot is doing favors for the visuals and music, and it's probably…
Great 60-90 min films (for those days when you just don't have the energy to watch a 3 hour masterpiece)
Doesn't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of 200+ quality "short" films. Easy…
Many favorites, as well as a small handful of films that I don't care for... in no particular order (1960-2014).
