If you're feeling overwhelmed, but still want to squeeze a film into your daily routine, this list is made for…
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.
Ok the music is classic....the animation is ground breaking (a huge influence on the great Terry Gilliam)....The Beatles (wow do they look young) appear at the end of the movie....all those are the good things. The bad....the story does not make any sense. The story....blue meanies who hate music attack the land of musicians....the Beatles take a ride on the yellow submarine and save the day.
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
You ever wonder what would happen if The Fab Four made a cartoon and proved they were truly screwed up whacko geniuses who may or may not have had way too much pot in their careers??? Well, Yellow Submarine is THAT MOVIE, and it's a stroke of trippy genius!
The Beatles are called to journey down the Yellow Submarine to save the world of Pepperland from Blue Meanies and their creepy glove eater machine through music, mainly in the disguise of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band. Oh, and there's a Nothing creature named Boob who's a dude.
As a Beatles fan, I was truly into another world with this movie. There is no other movie that looks as trippy…
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…
For some reason or another, my intense love for The Beatles that I used to have in my childhood was reinvigorated right before I went on vacation, so, in the car rides (which ranged from 2-7 hours), I spent most of my time listening to the Fab Four. Of course, as soon as I got home, I had to revisit one of my favorite films (and my favorite animated film).
Yes, Yellow Submarine is weird, experimental, unconventional, and surreal. If you can't get past that, I'm not sure if you can quite call yourself a Beatles fan as that's what they stood for from Rubber Soul up until the end of their career. They pushed the boundaries and revolutionized music,…
Rewatched, and now, it's a lovely piece of surreal animation, not so epileptic as I thought it was. Much better now than 8 or 9 years ago, when I watched it for the first time in a damaged VHS copy.
From the nursery to the boutique is now a very short path; YELLOW SUBMARINE travels it with charm and ease. The Beatles, represented by cartoons, go to the rescue of the people of Pepperland and save them from the Blue Meanies, their weapons being (who’d have guessed it?) music and love — but what is so pleasant about YELLOW SUBMARINE is its lighthearted, throwaway quality, and the story seems as disposable as the banter and the images. If the movie tried to be significant, if it had “something to say,” it might be a disaster. One of the best characters is a gluttonous consumer with a vacuum snout, who devours the universe, yet the movie itself sucks up an incredible…
Some may try and fault this film for a 'flimsy plot' but it was everything it needed to be. Style over substance for sure but the substance was nothing less than pure entertainment.
A Pop Art animated feature with hippie heroes (cartoon versions of the Beatles) going to the rescue of the people of Pepperland and saving them from the Blue Meanies by using the weapons of love and music. Good-natured, full of verbal-visual jokes, and surprisingly entertaining, though the love is less impressive than the music (10 songs by the Beatles). The brightly colored animation is so blatantly derivative that it's an amusing catalogue of 20th-century graphic design. One sequence--the dancing couple for "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"--is a stunning use of stylized human figures, an apotheosis of Rogers and Astaire. Directed by George Dunning; the chief designer was Heinz Edelmann. United Artists.

A great mixture of abstract images and music
enjoyable and visually satisfying
It's like Fantasia made in the 60s through the lens of pop art and LSD. There will never be a time where I can't watch this from start to finish,
So many puns! The common ancestor for every artsy animated gif out there.
What the hell was that?
Trippy as hell and exactly what I wanted to watch at 1am on a Thursday
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 hight quality "short" films. Easy…
