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.Read more ›
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.
If you already have the 2007 edition [regular edition], there is no difference between that [regular] edition and the 2013 blu-ray release. The video is based on the 2007 release. So while it may be crisp and clean for a DVD player it is adequate for a blu-ray release. There are no extras that weren't in the 2007 video release.
The release comes in a slip case with a digipack holding the disc and a sleeve to hold a 16 page booklet. There are no other [physical] extras.
One thing I do wonder is the pricing. At the time of the release, the price was $25 [and $22 in the US] - quite hefty for just about any movie/music video. I had seen it a bit cheaper elsewhere.

Love this movie but this copy apparently does not play in North America. I didn't know that when I ordered it. Read morePublished 4 months ago by NANCY SHAW
