    the only one i havent seen in its entirty is MMT, but i have seen the first bit, up until Victor Spinetti gets run over by the tank or wahtever...and i have also seen the "I am the Walrus" sequece...

    that being said..."A Hard Day's Night" is irrevrently hilarious, Let it Be aint bad either...HELP! is ok, but not that great...the only redeaming factor is the songs are great, and a few of the jokes play quite well [the scotland yard scene, and the scnene with the Bahama PC introductions]...that being said, im going with Hard Day's Night

    oops...i completely forgot about yellow submarine...its a great kids movie, ill give it that and its also fun for adults too...

    think the beatles' LOTR would have been interesting to say the least [ringo as frodo, paul as sam (or maybe vice versa) george as gandalf, and john as, who else, but gollum] to bad tolkein held onto the rights :p

    well the I am the Walrus isnt funny at all, its just a weird piece of psychadelia, but the beginning with Ringo and his Aunt arguing is slightly funny, and Jolly Jimmy is cool...Fool on the Hill, i just love the song and sequence cause its just so simple...and Spinetti yelling is just kinda absurd, i dodnt particularitly llike it though...and thats all ive seen/can remember

    i reitterate, ive only seen like the first 8 minutes or so, so i can hardly judge the movie from that alone, although i dont think id enjoy it that much, its more of a novelty

    not much...a lot of people including the beatles are riding around on this psychedelic bus and weird things "happen" (i put tha in quotes because their isnt really any story development). watch it if you're high or just in a weird mood, otherwise it jus wont be interesting.

    although it is a beatles movie, yellow submarine hardly is a "beatles" venture, considering all they had to do was write a few songs [which were then placed into the movie] and appear at the end live sequence thing...besides, the dreadful flying glove was the best character ever...does anyone know what the gangster guys with guns in their feet were called?...kinky boot beasts too, geez, i havent watched that in forever it seems, i may have to pull it out sometime...

    Let It Be is great...george plays "I Me Mine" by himself at one point, and John and Yoko are watltzing all over the place...at another point they play "Ive Got a Feeling" and Paul yells "WITH MONEY" after the mumbled middle-8...the rooftop concert is pretty awesome...and you can see their humour shine whn they leave twickenham studios for apple, they all creep into apple at different times pretending to be all sneaky like

    some of it is kinda boring cause they are just sitting there tlkaing about whatever, but it still rocks...you can easily download it off of the internet [via limewire or somesuch]
