4.0 out of 5 stars Box set is superb -- but costs too much April 1 2008
Format:DVD
I'm reviewing the deluxe box set, not the standard 2-DVD set priced at $20-something. The box is lavish: the director's script reproduced (including his notes), a colour hardcover book full of photos, 8 lobby cards and a movie poster (both reproductions) all housed in a sturdy slipcase. It's hard to argue against the package. My only wish is a director's commentary on the DVD and a few more extras on the bonus DVD, like vintage newsreels and outtakes. The remastering is superb: superb colours, clean image, strong contrast, crisp 5.1 sound.

HELP! is not as good a movie as A HARD DAY'S NIGHT, but the package is superior. The movie is still enjoyable, though the story is thin even silly.

Now the price: At $130+, it costs way too much for what you're getting. Take a look at other movie box sets and you'll find that HELP! costs twice as much as all others. Easily. I bought my box second-hand for $60 (like new). I was lucky. If you see this box for under $60, go for it. Above that -- that's your call.

This is advice for die-hard Beatlefreaks. For casual fans, pick up the standard 2-DVD set. It's worth the money.

By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
VIDEO:

Help arrives on blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.67:1 encode. Help first appeared on DVD in 2000 as part of a 4 disc set, including also Magic Mystery Tour, The First US Visit and You Can’t Do That! The video underwent a complete restoration in 2007 for the Special Edition DVD release. The contents of the current blu ray set are exactly the same as the 2007 Special Edition, with the same Special Features, same booklet containing the same pictures and essays (except the blu ray set is smaller in size). There is little to no information about any further restoration for this HD release. Therefore, I assume that this HD video is from an older master from 2007, as evidenced by a few niggling anomalies, the worst of which is quasi-ringing that may in fact at times simply be light roll off in a couple of backlit scenes, problems that might have been better addressed with newer technology or a higher resolution scan. That said, this blu ray offers some absolutely stunningly saturated colors (wait until you see the blue Ringo wears in an early scene in the lads' home). Fine detail is exceptional in extreme close-ups (take a gander at the first screenshot, where the fine hair on George's nose is easily visible). The final result is that this is the best video presentation of Help to date. (4/5)

AUDIO:

The audio is where Help really shines, jumping from the original mono track in 2000 to DTS 5.1 in 2007, and now lossless DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio. There are many great songs in this soundtrack, including Help, You’re Going To Lose That Girl, You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away, Ticket To Ride, The Night Before, I Need You and Another Girl. This is the only place that you can thoroughly enjoy the music in fantastic lossless 5.1 surround sound. The enjoyment is simply sublime.

Original review Oct 5, 2007...

HELP! is a classic movie and no doubt this remaster will be a huge upgrade in quality, picture wise and especially sound wise because of the new surround 5.1 mixes. But to charge an ARM & BOTH LEGS for this "limited edition" package is just plain greed on the part of Apple Corps.

Granted, this is a nicely put together package, but it shouldn't be priced at more than $60. I'll be buying the regular edition instead.

========================

Updated Jan 21, 2008.....

BUYER BEWARE: Amazon is posting the same reviews for the regular edition of HELP! which sells for about $22 and the "deluxe" edition which they are selling for over $100! The two discs in each version are EXACTLY the same. So even with the cheaper "regular" edition, you get ALL the same material of this great movie. And it's well worth it, the remastering is excellent - the video quality is fantastic and the remixed 5.1 surround sound is stunning.

The only difference between the two editions is that the "deluxe" box comes with some additional goodies: a book of the script, a poster and some promotional lobby cards all packaged in a big box. Granted, all very nice and well presented but not worth anywhere near the $100+ price tag.

Think about it: you're paying almost $80 for a book and some new "memorabilia". Is it worth it? Would you pay that price to buy those items separately? I think not. Get the regular edition instead and send a message to APPLE: price your product fairly and we'll buy it. The deluxe edition of HELP! should not be priced more than $50-$60 tops. Speak up now or else when LET IT BE is finally released, the "collector's edition" will be $300.

I watched this with my nephew last week. It's been years for me, and he had never seen it. He enjoyed the humour as much as I did, while I relived my teens Extraordinary supporting cast...terrific acting from all. A must for all Beatles fans!

4.0 out of 5 stars I am much older now, so it seems silly!
I was about 13 or 14 years old when I first saw "Help" at our theatre. I screamed like everyone else! Now I am 60 and it seems a bit silly, but good for a laugh!
