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.

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)


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.

Help! (1965.) The second Beatles movie.
In 1964 the Beatles proved that they were more than just talented singer-songwriters - they were talented actors, too! Their first film, A Hard Day's Night, demonstrated that the band could act quite well. For the band's second film, Eight Arms To Hold You, they went for a very different sort of movie - it was in color, and the plot was NOTHING like that of their previous film. At the last minute, the film's name was changed to Help!. Read on for my review.
An evil cult has prepared a ritual to sacrifice a young woman, but quickly finds out that they can't do this without the ceremonial ring - which has somehow ended up on the finger of Ringo Starr. The cult chases the band across the world in an attempt to reclaim the ring.
This is a very strange movie - but it's also a very good one. In my opinion, this film is far superior to its predecessor, A Hard Day's Night. Also, as with all of the other Beatles films, the band plays their songs at various points through the course of the movie - these little sessions are some of the best parts of the movie. All in all, a good movie.
The DVD doesn't have a whole lot of extras the way the A Hard Day's Night disc did, but it does have a few extras nonetheless. If you're a Beatles fan, you're sure to get a kick out of these bonus features.
Overall, it's a good movie. Sure, it's weird, but that doesn't mean it's not a good film! If you're a Beatles fan, do yourself a favor and check this movie out - I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

...Has ALWAYS been my favorite Beatles movie! It's completely insane, full of good, improvisational-style comedy of the Monty Python type, (in fact, I can almost guarantee you that this film and "Hard Day's Night" inspired the Pythons directly, as well as the godforesaken Monkees!) and excellent tunes by JPG&R! Just about everybody from this film went on to very respectable acting careers in film and theatre, especially Leo McKern and Eleanor Bron. Roy Kinnear became Richard Lester's signature supernumerary. And I'm still amazed at Victor Spinetti's strong resemblance to Donald Nixon.
A completely zany flick, this film follows the boys as they establish themselves in a new set of linked cottages in a spiffy clean, quaint working class part of, (presumably,) London, with the sight gags starting immediately as an enormous organ pops up out the floor of Paul's section of the cottages; John selects and kisses a copy of his own "Spaniard In The Works"; George instructs a bumpkin to mow his rug with snapping gag dentures and Ringo selects fruit and soda from his own row of vending machines!
Enter the villains. In the opening teaser, it is established that a cult that is into human sacrifice has noted that Ringo has possession of a gaudy ring that they have lost that is crucial to their ritual sacrifice. They immediately go to London to re-obtain this ring so they can conduct business as usual and it is up to Eleanor Bron, as the very pretty Ahme, to get the ring from the hapless drummer.
Craziness ensues as they chase the fabs from locale to locale to get the ring, first to the recording studio, then an Eastern restaurant in London, then the alps, then to London again and Scotland Yard and then to the Bahamas.
