This film must be something, everybody's talking about it, can't wait to see it. I actually remember watching the Beatles from Shea Stadium in 1966 when it was televised on ABC.
Yeah. It seems like most people I know have finished it except me!

9.4/10 on IMDB! Which is pretty remarkable for an 8 hour movie.



No, it was Ringo, who quit the band for a week during the White Album sessions.
I think he meant that Paul says it not John, a mistake with the subtitles.

Ah. Not a mistake with subtitles, the audio is synched to Lennon's lips in the shot, but it may have actually been Paul. It's a muttered response, and underneath some of the more annoying Yoko wailing in the background, which even annoyed John enough to scream back in response.


But I did notice a lot of "flown in" dialogue, because a lot of the recorded audio was recorded while the cameras weren't rolling, and Jackson wanted to incorporate these clips somehow. I'm not sure if Jackson was confused or simply decided that this particular scene offered the best synch with the audio in question.

No, I noticed sometimes the dialogue doesn't quite match up with what we're seeing but I'm not worried about that.
It does sting me a bit to see George not looking like he ever gets any due. It's funny that Ringo just kinda hangs back and smokes cigarettes and waits most of the time.

Well, "Something" is pretty universally embraced, as it should be, and the band puts a lot of work into "I Me Mine" and "For You Blue". What the film doesn't show though is that a number of his initial songs were ignored, like "Hear Me Lord", "Isn't It a Pity", "Let It Down", but there's an interesting clip discussing the extent to which the other Beatles rejected "All Things Must Pass". There's a few really good takes of the latter, and McCartney arranged some really good backing vocals and bass playing for it.





This is my favorite take of it, but obviously still in bootleg quality.





One of my favorite Beatles tunes (for literally 35 years) has been "Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight", so getting to hear that one forming is real nice for me.

I finished it.. Found all parts online on a streaming site - not sure if it's allowed on here, so I won't post the link.


It's odd how EVERYONE complains about the acoustics, which is one of the most important things when it comes to recording, but they don't ditch the idea until George temporarily quits the band....



It was real cool to hear John talk about this band he really likes named "Fleetwood Mac"



I find it charming and maybe telling how formally polite they usually are to each other: they all seem to greet each other directly, specifically, by name each morning.
Yes, very British.

While I can't imagine this being that engaging to those only passively interested in the Beatles, and would probably be almost impenetrable to those unfamiliar with them, for fanatics it is the holy grail.


So far, the film is about 90 percent people sitting around in the same room, smoking, talking, drinking, playing, joking. But because of the nature of who these people are and the historic moment it was in their career, to have this unobstructed view of these guys creating, finding their muse, struggling, I'm in a bit of heaven.


Until this moment, Mystery of Picasso was always my go to answer for a movie which shows us the creative mind of a genius. And while I'm only three hours into this so far, this is undoubtedly going to usurp that.
Agree. If this werenít The Beatles, I would have zero interest.

It was August 15, 1965, to be exact. My late SIL, who was from Queens, was at this concert. She told me she didnít hear a single thing from the concert since the girl in front of her screamed throughout the entire concert. Which was only 20 minutes long.

I find it remarkable that it's most viewed between people in their 30s (30-44), since over 44 could be 54, 64, 74, 84, especially considering the age group of those in 1969.

Theory/Conclusion -- music and movies were just better then, and the stats don't lie





That must be based on the info of the subscribers? Because how would they know which members of a household (or their friends/relatives with the password) actually watched it?
