Perhaps because the Beatles were considered such a draw, perhaps because the songs were counted on to sell the film, there was no agenda to dumb down the material or hard-sell the story. Instead of contrived urgency, there's unpressured whimsy, and the movie exists as pure charm, expressed in fantastical imagery. And then there are the songs.
Beautiful piece of art along with memorable characters that each has its own unique likeability and trait, unforgettable songs and a powerful world building that makes this movie even better than it already is. The characters are all memorable, the voice acting is fantastic, the design of the whole world is big and colorful! Go and see this piece of art right now!!!
Music has always wanted to be eternally married to images because of that search for art to embrace beauty in all life through the mecionado. The film takes us to live inside the music of the insurmountable Beatles. And what we find is an animated innovation vjamas before seen: dreams, abstractions, acid and surreal trips and art in its most pure state.
The animation is imaginatively conceived, but stiffly executed. A Fantasia designed for heads, the film does no more justice to the music than Disney's artists did. But Disney had the excuse of innocence, whereas this shrewdly conceived commercial project does not.
Still keeps its charm! The 2018 version of Yellow Submarine looks crisp as ever. I really enjoyed the visuals; it goes without saying that the music sounded awesome. I only have 2 beefs: Ringo's speech in the beginning was tough to understand; and I hate the song Hey Bulldog! In this case, less is more and I prefer the version without it. See it in theaters while you still can b/c it's a once in a lifetime experience.
If you love The Beatles, you've probably already seen it. If you haven't, do it. You won't regret it
While the musical segments are obviously the best parts, I really love the witty dialogue, even if I can't understand half of what they're saying most of the time (can someone from Liverpool please translate?)
The ending really made wish I could have watched this in theaters in 1968.
