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
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…
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.
There really is only one way to watch this.
Makes Walt Disney look so square he's a circle.
An effortlessly charming movie of pioneering animation and great musical sequences. Doesn't completely distract from the fact that the plot is thin and the other characters aren't memorable in anything other than animation. But with animation and music this good, who cares?
(Review coming soon here and at The Solute)
Very rarely is a film this different or groundbreaking.
Yellow Submarine has often garish, but still very good and artistic animation, some scenes are very intriguing, the songs are pretty good and the world building in particular is its strongest asset, but the plot is not that great, the characters aren't that well developed and the film is too pretentious and frankly boring to be enjoyed more.
i like how as the years go on the beatles movie just kinda slowly get worse
In the town where I was born, Lived a man who sailed to sea, And he told us of his life, In the land of submarines…
So begins George Dunning’s kaleidoscopic tale of the voyage of the Yellow Submarine, based on the ever-popular song from The Beatles. Speaking of The Beatles, they are present; animated, full of life, and ready for the journey.
The film opens in an “unearthly paradise” called Pepperland, an underwater utopia where love reigns, music soars, and flowers bloom. It seems that all is bliss, until the nefarious Blue Meanies attack, draining Pepperland of its color and harmony, while rendering the care-free citizens immobile in a collective temporary coma. With only minutes at hand before his…
Wild and scary times at the kids picture show; too violet for the rose and too violent for the rows.
Un film bastante infravalorado. Excelente animación.
I didn't really know what was going on but there's a little homeless oompa loompa with a fluffy tail named Boob.
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…
Many favorites, as well as a small handful of films that I don't care for... in no particular order (1960-2014).
