Title: Yellow Submarine
Post by: Patton on March 09, 2004, 02:38:20 PM
As you can probly see! I love Yellow Submarine! ;D It's just such a great movie even though it's sort of off the wall. I think it's pritty funny and has great music! :P

Yup.

Classic.

The Fabs thought it would be cheesy but once they saw it they liked it too.

Great movie to watch if you've been indulging in "tea".  ;-)

I have to admit I'm not too impressed with Yellow Submarine as a cartoon movie(excluding the music) which I saw for the first time back in 72 since Bugs Bunny & Daffy Duck are much better personally speaking but it cracks me up to think that hippies got stoned in theaters back in 68 when it was first released.

I love this movie. It has sentimental value to me too. I was obsessed with it as a kid. I even taped it on little audio cassettes. No VCR yet. We'd sit there listening to it on my little tape recorder. Then we'd interview each other as Beatles. But beyond the memories, I still love to watch it. It's timeless. Even the kids these days, as sophisticated as they are, love it. Like I said one other time, I showed it to my students and when it was over they thanked me. Now they sing along to every song and talk through the whole thing telling each other what's gonna happen.

Is Yellow Submarine available on DVD in the UK? If so what goodies are on it - it's been a long time since I saw it but I have a large animation collection and I love the Beatles - so I guess it's time I added it to my collection!

Yes - it has been digitally remastered and the soundtrack remixed into 5.1 surround sound - plus Hey Bulldog has finally been re-added! Definitely worth buying!

Does anyone know where I can buy Yellow Submarine in the states?  I've looked everywhere!  My fiance wanted to get it for me for Christmas a few years ago but the only copy he could find would have had to be imported from Japan, and we weren't sure if the format would be correct.  It is my absolute favorite movie of all times - the Beatles are my life!  If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks!

Meh.  Not a big fan of the movie I'm afraid.  Especially as the Beatles' voices aren't even used in it.  It was just way for them to fulfill their contract.

The album however is worth a listen especially for those of us who dig Hey Bulldog.  The orchestrations are also just the thing to have a chill out session with.  (I'm talking of course about the original release not the Songbook).

Except that it seems to have been withdrawn!! Both Amazon and CD Wow have no copies. You can get it on Amazon Marketplace for 46 quid!! Bit odd seeing as they went to the trouble of remastering it?

Thanks for the tip, Revolution! But $35.50 sounds a little steep for me; I was hoping for something under $15. :)

I hope you're joking about Apple not having a master plan, BM. I  just assumed they had some bean counters somewhere figuring out how to reveal the Beatles product over the greatest number of years to increase revenue. To think that it's just haphazardly released is a little depressing, because it means some songs will certainly be overlooked, and we may not get things we're missing in a timely manner. But I suppose no one really knows? (Sorry to be so serious, but I'm genuinely curious.) Cheers.

It is a bit of a mystery that it seems to have been deleted again. However, The Beatles official website says it's available. But then it's not in their shop!!

yeah, I was one of them  :D :D Came out in 1968--saw it around Christmas that year (around the same time The White Album was released Nov/Dec) I was fifteen at the time, but didnt get stoned until 2nd time I saw it at 19. It was cutting-edge animation for that era.

I have a question about the film.  I've watched it once just recently (paid $50. for it on e-bay, peekaboo!), and after watching it, decided to check out the "special features."  Within was a great theatrical trailer, and within the trailer was real-live Beatles!  Real live Beatles doing some goofy stuff with studio equipment, and enjoying "Yellow Submarine" IN A PRIVATE MOVIE THEATER (overindulged rich and privileged make me sick, peekaboo).  

Well, now to my quesiton: is the live Beatles featured in the trailer available anywhere in a comprehensive collection?  It certainly wasn't in the cartoon.  Is it "lost," or just being hoarded in their sacred vault?

Does anyone know if the "Yellow Submarine" DVD will ever be re-released?  (Why it was discontinued?)

I was looking for it online at B&N and Amazon and realized it is gone (yes, I am totally late on this).  Then I tried searching through the online catalog of my local libraries and saw that their sole copy was "lost" (probably stolen by a desperate Beatles fan?  ;) ).

Ringo and Old Fred walk into a huge 30's style 'mad professor' type lab. There's a huge Frankenstein's monster lying on a large bench.
Old Fred (in a shocke voice) - Thats Frankenstein....
Ringo - Yeah!  I used to out with his sister....
Old Fred - His sister?
Ringo - Yeah, Phyllis....

:D  :D  :D
I love daft little jokes like that ;) 
I love Yellow Submarine; a very funny, imaginative film, with a script that captured the Beatles' offbeat (almost Milligan-inspired) humour absolutely brilliantly :)
I got my copy for £9.99 off Ebay a couple or three months ago; I think it's an Asian release, but it IS the digitally remastered version, and looks (and sounds) fabulous!  I love the Eleanor Rigby segment too - a very 'sixties' backdrop, with the clever animations that fit the sad mood of the song brilliantly.
Cheers,
Steve.

I resemble that remark. Actually, I did see Yellow Submarine on the day it was released in '68. No special medication was needed. You haven't experienced the movie until you see it on the BIG screen, especially the Sea of Holes.

Btw, one of the screenwriters also wrote the book, "Love Story". His name is Erich Segal.

As for the jokes, the movie is better appreciated if you were raised on Beatle humor and knew the public persona of each member of the band.

Even more bizarre is that Erich Segal and Al Gore were roommates at Harvard. Maybe Gore was the inspiration for the chief Blue Meanie.
