Beatles ~ Yellow Submarine

Amazon.ca

This restored, animated valentine to the Beatles offers viewers the rare chance to see a work that's been substantially improved by its technical facelift, not just supersized with extra footage. Recognizing that its song-studded soundtrack alone makes Yellow Submarine a video annuity, United Artists has lavished a frame-by-frame refurbishment of the original feature, while replacing its original monaural audio tracks with a meticulously reconstructed stereo mix that actually refines legendary original album versions.

What emerges is a vivid time capsule of the late '60s and a minor milestone in animation. The music represents the quartet's zenith--Rubber Soul, Revolver, and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The story line, cobbled together by producer Al Brodax and a committee of writers, is a broad, feather-light allegory set in idyllic Pepperland, where the gentle citizens are threatened by the nasty, music-hating Blue Meanies and their surreal arsenal of henchmen, with the Beatles enlisted to thwart the bad guys. Visually, designer Heinz Edelmann mixes the biomorphic squiggles, day-glo palette, and Beardsley-esque portraits of Peter Max with rotoscoped still photographs and film; Edelmann's animated collages also nod to Andy Warhol and Magritte in properly psychedelic fashion, which works wonderfully with such terrific songs.

High orthodox Beatlemaniacs can still grouse that the animated Fab Four are (literally) flat archetypes, but that's missing the sheer bloom of the music or the giddy, campy fun of the visuals. Making sense of the story is second to submerging blissfully in the sights and sounds of this video treat. --Sam Sutherland

Finalement j'ai pu voir ce dessin animé qui me branche avec l'art Pop, les années hippies, les couleurs voyantes, respirant la beauté et la légèreté du Peace and Love malgré la guerre du Vietnam et toutes ces protestations. Toujours l'histoire du bon amoureux de la vie contre le mauvais tyran mortel. Les voies ne sont pas celles des Beatles, mais elles me plaisent beaucoup. J'ai aimé aussi le documentaire sur Magical Mystery Tour, Help et Hard Days Night si vous voulez entendre les vraies voies de John, Paul, George et Ringo qui ont tant parlé de l'amour et la paix dans toutes ses formes.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2014
Format: DVD
"Yellow Submarine" is one of those movies that, for me, is pure nostalgia. It was my first introduction to the Beatles, and one of the first non-Disney animated movies I saw.

Even though it makes absolutely no sense, "Yellow Submarine" is still a delightfully weird, acid-tripping story that bounces all over a colorful galaxy of hallucinatory nonsense. And yes, it stars the Beatles as heroes riding around in a Yellow Submarine, seeking to defeat the Blue Meanies. No joke.

Under the sea, there is an idyllic land known as Pepperland, where music rules. But then the music-hating Blue Meanies invade, petrifying the people with green apples and sealing away St. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Fortunately Old Fred the sailor manages to escape in a yellow submarine, to find help.

He finds it in Liverpool, where he enlists the depressed Ringo, and subsequently Ringo's four buddies John, Paul and George. So the yellow submarine sets out to Pepperland, but encounters many strange dangers along the way -- the Sea of Time, the Sea of Science, a monstrous vacuum, giant stomping boots, the Foothills of the Headlands (which is full of giant heads), the "nowhere man" in his "nowhereland," and the mind-bending Sea of Holes.

But when they get to Pepperland, they find a ruined shell ruled over by the Nazi-like Blue Meanies. Can the Beatles elude petrification/capture, and somehow manage to bring music back to Pepperland?

"Yellow Submarine" has almost no story, and the dialogue often makes little sense. This is a movie that is all about the visuals -- colorful, wild, acid-tripping visuals that seem to be trying to dazzle your eyes.

31 years after is original release, the Beatles animated classic was re-released with an accompanying album of remixed versions of the original tracks. The release sparked an onslaught of Yellow Submarine merchandise and publicity in what was dubbed the Beatlennium project. But what of the film itself? Did it deserve such attention? In short - yes. It is undoubtedly a psychedelic period piece and some claim it has dated badly. But for sheer inventiveness, this work takes some beating. It is a wildly imaginative tale of good verses evil. The Utopian Pepperland is attacked by the Blue Meanies who want to destroy all that is good (loads of contemporary symbolism there). John, Paul, George and Ringo travel through time and space and philosophy to liberate Pepperland from this tyrannical oppression. The film has been remastered using state of the art computer technology, with the soundtrack remixed in 5.1 surround sound. Its impact is heightened and the result is really stunning. The visuals are dense in detail, combining Pop art, Op art, Surrealism and even a Monty Python style of animation, and yet still retaining a unique originality of its own. And music-wise, the fabs have seldom sounded better, with each Beatle showcasing their individual strenths.

"Yellow Submarine" has to be one of the best animation pieces of all time. YS is a colorful and funny film that will captivate Beatles' fans of all ages and if you like puns, this movie has a lot of them ("Are you blueish? You don't look blueish!").
YS also has a number of vivid psychedelic montages that are enhanced by a digitally remastered soundtrack. One of my favorite segments in this film is when the sub enters the Sea of Science. George Harrison's "Only A Northern Song" comes to the forefront on this psychedelic sequence yet it does so in a way that it compliments and even enhances the animation.
Whether you're a Beatles fan or a fan of the animated arts, you will undoubtedly find this an enjoyable movie. YS is a fun film that the whole family will enjoy watching again and again. This is one film you will definitely want to add to your video collection.

I never thought the movie was great until my 5 year old started watching it. I am hooked (or re-hooked on the Beatles). The music and images are far better than anything on TV. Sure, squint your eyes (or ears) real hard and find some type of references to the 60's - but the're not there if you simply enjoy the feast.
My daughter now hums the songs, we have a Beatles poster in her room - - an no more Sponge Bob, Scooby Doo, or those Princesses. YEA!

Ah, "Yellow Submarine". I had wanted to see this movie for ages ... and so I was very happy when, last January, my mom and dad got me a copy of this for my birthday. Since I received it, I've watched it several times, and enjoyed each one a little more than the time which came before. If you're a Beatles fan, a music fan, or an animation fan, you need look no further than here if you're at Amazon.com today just searching for something you might like.
While the plot of this movie is really nothing special, the music, visuals, and characters more than make up for it, and so you'll be guaranteed to be entertained whenever you pop this into your dvd player. Basically, a musical, magical, mystical place called Pepperland, located far beneath the ocean waves, is under attack by a race of music-hating creatures called Blue Meanies. One fellow, able to escape Pepperland before the Blue Meanies turned him to stone, sets off to find help for his fellow citizens, and makes his way to Liverpool. There, he (naturally) enlists the assistence of four musicians, and together they journey back to Pepperland in order to fight the Blue Meanie Menace. That's about it.
Along the way, however, they journey through some amazing (and to my knowledge, unknown) places, such as the Sea of Monsters, the Sea of Holes (classic line found here, together with a lot of ... holes ...), and a little (and big) place called Nowhere. This journey up to the arrival in Pepperland is actually my favorite part of the movie. Very episodic and varied, with some interesting sights and some great lines. This is a VERY quotable movie.
