Non Beatles viewers will dislike this film to the nth degree but fans of their music will enjoy it despite how strange the world is that the cartoon inhabits. I think it is my least favorite Beatles film that they have been in but it still features some of their great music.
I was having some crazy Beatles nostalgia today. Last night I was in bed staring at the ceiling and I kept thinking just how surreal it is that a band like this could exist.
I thought about the time I saw this movie in the theatre, and the projectionist decided to turn the volume up to the highest possible level. He or she is the greatest projectionist of all time. My ears were ringing afterwards, but the jingle of Hey…
Coloratissima e scanzonata avventura d'animazione
dei fab four, scandita dai pezzi contenuti in St. Pepper's
lonely heart band.
Ad hoc, ad loc and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!
Roger Ebert's Great Movies # awww fuck it. Who cares if I keep count? The man had good taste!
"Nothing is Beatle proof!" - John Lennon
"I like that good rock and roll, uh, music." - Scott Aukerman
It's true, you know. Nothing is Beatle proof. Not even surrealism, the most elliptical and alienating of artistic movements, can hold stead in the Beatles' wake. And it's magical, really, seeing them conquer it. Truly magical.
Here is a film that cares…
"George: It's all in the mind, you know!"
Recently i have watched two movies which are centered in two legendary bands, those movies being The Last Waltz(The Band) and Pink Floyd-The Wall. They are very different from one another but i enjoyed watching both and one of the things i enjoyed the most was to get to know better these bands that have a huge legacy and name but i actually do not know much from. And with that in…
Weird, trippy animation featuring the Beatles in a battle versus the Blue Meanies. It starts wit the attack of the Blue Meanies on a land full of musicians which they silence, but then the journey of the Beatles to battle the Meanies with music starts. I thought the first hour or so was fascinating, I loved the journey in the yellow submarine and some of the jokes and the ingenuity but I thought the film ran out of ideas when…
Saw this at my local AMC, a total surprise to find it playing at my local cineplex. Having only seen it on television it was quite an experience to see the vibrancy of the colors of Pepper-Land on a big screen. The movie is hardly a widescreen spectacle, but regardless its a film clearly meant to be watched on a big screen where the psychedelic imagery can swallow you in along with Beatles classics ('Nowhere Man', 'All You Need is…
I should stop beginning statements (especially reviews here) with "Its weird that..." so I'll try:
The first time I saw "Yellow Submarine", me and my family were in between houses: we had just moved out of house and were looking for another one and in the meantime were living in a hotel. We went to the library to get some books and some VHS tapes (our room had a VCR) and among those videos was "Yellow Submarine". What made my…
What the hell did I just (mostly not) watch?
I can 100% say that as an animation student, I have never seen nor experienced anything like this.
The art direction is absolutely beautiful. It definitely has one of the most unique styles I've ever come across. You can pause it on any frame and instantly know what film it comes from. There is even a large variance of different styles throughout the film, which is pretty rare in comparison to the animated films that come out today.…
