Movie Review by Movie Addict
November 16th, 2007

A trip back to my teen years

I don't know why I remember this film as being in black and white. But, I guess that was A Hard days Night, I remember. With this newly restored version, it is brilliant color and the sound is great.

This is The Beatles when they were young and pure - their suit wearing early years. The songs would probably be considered sickly sweet now, but they still don't lose the magic they had 40 years ago. What was funny was that I could still sing along without missing a beat. After all it does include three No. 1 singles, and the signature song, "Help!" This film is all about the music. The story here is just a vehicle for showing the four lads from Britain, who had only arrived in America the year before. The absurdest plot presages the band's future flirtations with psychedelics and Eastern music.

A great trip down memory lane with one of the greatest rock movie soundtracks of all time.
