A list of Edgar Wright's favorite 1000 Movies per his list on Mubi on July 27th, 2016.
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.
Scavenger Hunt #12
Task #4: A pre-1970 animated film not made by Disney
"I told you not to eat on an empty stomach."
Hallucinogens: The Movie!
This movie is a drug trip. I'm not even sure I liked it or if it just beat me into submission. I think it just kind of made me fall back into my seat and numbed my mind. I can't even really tell you what it's about and I just finished it. I'm not even sure it's about anything. It has a great soundtrack though. Those Beatles are going places.
Weird but good weird, enjoyed it.
This god damn movies has me tripping balls every time I watch it. It has the clever, cheeky humor of the Beatles, along with a nice family friendly story.
But holy fake tits in a blender, what on earth is going on?
Yellow Submarine is an old animated film starring the Beatles. In this film, the Blue Meanies are attacking Pepperland and its citizens and it's up to the Beatles along with other friendly companions to stop them from destroying Pepperland. I am a big fan of the Beatles. I love their music. I'm a big fan of old music. And I heard really good things about this film. And I checked this out and I absolutely loved it. This is probably one of my favorite animated films of all time. I love the animation of this film. It's really bizarre but it's extremely creative. I love the landscapes and the environments. The Blue Meanies reminded me of Foster's Home…
There's not a thing I would change about this film.
This was the first VHS my dad brought home for me when we got our new video player put into the living room. I was 4 years old. Once the movie finished, I turned to him and said "that was the best thing I've ever seen". Sorry for the late review.
so weird...the beatles weren't even in this one. but it was my fave when i was 5
This is literally the equivalent of having an acid trip without the acid, and that's a compliment, for it's so damn amazing.
A vivid, colorful and breathtaking experience that established The Beatles' legacy as one of most influential bands of all time.
One of my all time favorite movie since I was a little kid. Great visuals, music, and a nonsensical plot perfect for a kids movie based around music.
This is ridiculously fun, despite (or is it because..) being one of the trippiest movies ever made. Vibrant colors, surreal beasts, and a complete disregard for the laws of physics make this an exploration into psychedelia. Certainly one of the most unique animated films ever made. I didn't remember The Beatles being quite as catty as they get at some points (calling the monster that gets in the sub 'ugly,' making fun of Ringo, and the "Nowhere Man" sequence come to mind here). Still highly recommended if you like The Beatles, the 60's, or surrealism/psychedelia.
inspired by Jack Bower's most recent list, I decided to do an interactive list where you just comment your favorite…
Films where their style fills the screen so absolutely, substance is but an afterthought.
Only added some that I've seen,…
