3.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, lousy DVD June 21 2005
Format:DVD
I have to agree that A HARD DAY'S NIGHT is the Citizen Kane of rock movies. It's funny, charming, cleverly-directed, well-scripted and beautifully shot. Most rock movies are exploitation pieces that showcase a band on the big screen with little regard to story or design. A HARD DAY'S NIGHT stands as a Film in its own right.
What I don't like is the DVD. It's a lousy package. Most unforgiveable is the horrible, muddy, bass-heavy mono mix that sounds like it was produced at the bottom of a swamp. What the hell is this?
My old MPI VHS tape sounds much better than this. The songs were in bright, beautiful stereo. This DVD is an abomination. Does anyone at Miramax or Apple have ears? Does anybody care, or are these corporations just interested in ripping off Beatles fans? Is there no respect for a great film and great music?
Aside from that rant, I have mixed feelings about the extras. We have loads of recollections from supporting actors and bit players. These are entertaining as a whole, but the special features depend on them too much. Where's the director's commentary -- or anybody's? Where's the 50-minute documentary (narrated by Phil Collins) that came out on DVD in the mid-90s, called THE MAKING OF A HARD DAY'S NIGHT?
I would rate this package 5 stars if it offered its customers something intelligent, but sadly this DVD smells of greed. Sure, you need to see A HARD DAY'S NIGHT. I just wish this release did it with class.

3.0 out of 5 stars Should have been so much better June 15 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is a very disappointing DVD re-issue of one of the all-time classic rock & roll movies.
First of all, where the heck is "Running Jumping Standing Still"? That was supposed to be included on this release but was not. Instead we get interviews with any number of obscure people (Isla Blair, Gordon Millings) and very little else of interest besides the feature itself. Not that the feature isn't worth owning on its own, but it clearly could have been released as a single disc, given the less-than-essential "bonus" material on disc 2.
Secondly, there seems to have been a very odd decision made to show the film in a matted 1.66:1 aspect ratio instead of the original 1.37:1 ratio. This decision smacks of some marketing weasel saying "It's got to be widescreen! People like widescreen now!" but the simple fact is that you're not seeing the entire movie when you watch this disc. Now, I realize that this film was made very quickly and it's not like matting a shot that the director and cinematogapher labored over for six weeks, but at the same time, DVDs should, simply stated, attempt to show the movie as close to the way it was originally created as possible. Full stop.
In short, what should have been the definitive version of this great movie has only left me hungry for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard Day's Night Nov. 6 2009
Format:Blu-ray
The picture is a slight improvement over the SD version, however the DTS Master Audio is a giant leap over the standard DTS version!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a clean old movie? Jan. 6 2001
Format:DVD
When I was in high school my mom bought a record by this new group The Beatles. I wasn't impressed, give me my 409 and Shutdown. But when A Hard Days Night came out I saw it, not that many rock movies except Elvis back then. After 2 or so times through I left the theater, jwalked accross the street to the music store, bought the sheet music and retired to my guitar. I was hooked! Now ask me who's that little old man and I'll ask back What little old man. I think I have the whole thing memorized. I bought the videotape, my wife gave me the computer CD ( There are some interesting cut scenes), and later she bought me the DVD. I quess I didn't know all the script after all, The DVD version adds the clarity to really follow a great movie. The acting, these aren't actors, but you have to remind yourself of that. Compare it to say the Monkees, argh. The Writing/Directing, an English friend turned me on to the Goon Show and I thought of the movie, then discovered the Goon Show-Lester-Beatle connection and saw where the great scripting and scenes came from. A must see if you were there or want to know what it was like then.

By A Customer
Format:DVD
To quote from a review..."The Citizen Kane of Pop Musicals..." What can you say? The film that has never been equaled or reproduced by any rock act. What set the Beatles apart from other bands then and since, is that there were four distinct personalities in the group, and no matter if you liked them or not, the average rock afficionado can name all four members of the band. A HARD DAY'S NIGHT further enhanced this aspect and at the same time made one of the best rock movies of all time. The film is filmed in a black and white, quasi-documentary style, with great innovative camera work by director Richard Lester. Stripped down, it's a musical comedy based on a 'day in the life' of the Beatles as they are preparing for a press conference and rehearsing for an upcoming appearance on a television program in London. Foregoing the traditional musical where a scene is set up to segue into a musical number, the Beatles play themselves and inject musical numbers at random points with great success and fun. Its not like an Elvis movie where he sings to the bad guy after he beats him up, the musical spots are like modern musical videos. Great classic songs like "Can't buy Me Love", "She Loves You", "If I Fell", "And I Love Her", etc.. are used in the film and a good time is had by all. Pretty good natural comedic performances by the Fab Four . A film that's in a league all its own. Fun!!
- - -However, the newly released DVD by Miramax is not a very good in the bells and whistles. It mostly contains interviews from people we don't care about. There should have been deleted scenes and outtakes. Now that would have been better. The most disappointing thing is the soundtrack.

I LOVE the quality, but I was unsatisfied with the packaging, I was expecting the blu ray to come with the glossy cover that slips over it.
