    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…

    The Beatles-inspired psychedelic odyssey is a film that both defines and redefines animation. It uses the limitless medium to its advantage, showcasing mindblowing and beautifully surreal, colorful imagery to match the eclecticism of The Beatles' music that was conceived and recorded during their peak years. It's admittedly very light on plot, but the film has a joyful sincerity to it, a friendly playful tone, and it loves to explore the weird and the whimsical. That way, it works wonderfully for…

    A surrealist masterpiece, although I do have to admit that I wish The Beatles did their own voices in this movie. The animation is incredibly inventive and borrows just enough from the songs to be interesting to Beatles fans but also has plenty there of its own invention. The movie itself is beautiful but also hilarious (just like A Hard Day's Night), and manages to put together some incredible "music video" sequences.

    I was way too not-on-drugs to understand this movie.

    But it's a must-watch for anyone who wants to dive a little more into the mind of 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…

    Dr. Seuss meets Terry Gilliam. I'm not a big Beatles guy but now I might reconsider!

    From the "I'm a born Lever-puller" point on, I was fully invested. Not only were the puns stupid...ly fun, the animation was wonderfully imaginative as if created by a group of really artistic kindergarteners. (The vacuum monster creating a world of nothingness and the Sea of Holes are now included in my list of favourite animated sequences.) The music also just brings out the…

    This is a truly underrated film which i had never really heard of before watching it. This is so brilliantly visual and the songs are a delight. This truly deserves some more recognition.

    This is one of those films that seems like every frame is made with love. What a wonderful animated celebration of the music of The Beatles. With enough clever puns (and some groan-inducing ones) and jokes and silly gags to make anyone smile, it's a film that you don't care what it's about. You just have to a great time watching it. And I do, every time.

    I have so much love for this wonderful movie, and remember: love is all you need.
