Every film from Roger Ebert's "Great Movies" essays.
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.
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.
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…
holy shit smoke weed
Film #23 of the "Scavenger Hunt #2" Challenge!
Task #6 - A Submarine film!
Here's the thing with Yellow Submarine, it's a strange, delightful animation that has The Beatles as the main characters. I just recently found out though that the people who voice The Beatles aren't actually The Beatles, didn't stop me from enjoying the film though and the actual Beatles show up at the end anyway to give us a farewell. Anyway, I'm a massive fan of The Beatles and I grew up listening to their stuff. Yellow Submarine was my favourite song and when I found out that there was a film I had to see it. Unfortunately trying to find a copy of…
I'm sure I don't need to say this but I will anyway. A healthy dose of LSD will make this movie one of the most watchable films on the planet.
I love animation, and I love The Beatles. Together, they're like Peanut Butter and Jelly. It's just a beautiful experience. The whole film captures the spirit of the entire band, and what they stood for. Love is all you need.
Just realized that I'd never seen the whole thing. It's kind of amazing.
Souvenir psychedelia, with intrusions of art nouveau and Peter Max (1968). The animation is imaginatively conceived, but stiffly executed. A Fantasia designed for heads, the film does no more justice to the music than Disney's artists did. But Disney had the excuse of innocence, whereas this shrewdly conceived commercial project does not. George Dunning directed.
I dont know why but when this movie ended i laugh with a huge smile on my face. I'm not sure if it was me or just weird and wonder full this movie was.
its all in the mind
Quite the fun Sunday trip, with all the silly Beatles banter, daring animation, and excellent music.
Fun, trippy animation that reminded me of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Like taking acid without taking acid.
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).
