Movies that are slightly off.
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.
My childhood right there :^)
Wild, psychedelic, imaginative, and has great music.
face meltingly psychedelic animation
an easy 5 stars
I can't exactly say much about this film, other than I'm very glad that I watched it. It really wasn't what I expected.
The imagination that went into the visuals and storyline is unquestionable and appreciated, and it really holds up and even feels way ahead of its time as far as a film from 1968 goes (especially an animated one).
The whole film from my view was basically about appreciating music and the joy it brings.
It was witty and entertaining all throughout. But I did find it hard to get into the characters, as I'm not really all that familiar with the Beatles and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Oh sure I've listened to some of their…
Really amazing amount of visual ideas, every thirty seconds there is something new happening visually on the screen, and I never mind an excuse to listen to some Beatles. Obviously meant to be watched on acid, not stone-cold sober in the middle of a film histor classroom like I did, but I still found it pretty breezy and enjoyable
But man, the tracks written for the film feel incredibly phoned in don't they?
"What if we just actually sang the alphabet?"
I look at all the lonely people...
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
While there isn't much to this film story wise, that isn't really the reason for this film. The reason for this film is the music by the Beatles and the visuals. The visuals are stunning and vibrant, and the stops along the way to Pepperland certainly provide a wide variety of visuals for us to enjoy. The music is great, as to be expected from the Beatles, but the thing is that the best songs are the ones you've already heard outside of this film. Only 4 of the 15 songs featured in the film are original to the film, and frankly the rest make for better listening than watching in my opinion.
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…
Complete list. :-(
