    The Beatles: Get Back

    ★★★★

    It has to be said that the "restoration" of this material is heinous. It's difficult to imagine a career turn more disastrous than Peter Jackson's into archive footage documentarian.

Though their placement within the MCU is now shaky at best, the Netflix Marvel shows at least achieved this; they may have been riddled with bloat but they…
