Beatles - 8 days a week


#1

Anyone seen this? My little boy who’s 6 is Beatles obsessed and wants to watch it. It doesn’t have a rating as far as I can tell, is there anything unsuitable, bad language or… adult themes or something? Apart from the Beatles generally being an odd thing for a 6 year old to be obsessed with.


#2

My younger brother age three knew all the lyrics to Nowhere Man.

To be fair a lot of the Beatles make more sense for kids. Yellow Submarine is the obvious example


#3

It’s a 12a - so you can take him

There are a few F bombs in the interviews - but that’s it really

If there’s F-bombs, I think we can live without for now. Thanks anyway.


#6

defo need to check this. gonna pick up that hollywood bowl shit on wax, too


#7

The hollywood bowl stuff is great - for a concert that is notorious for being bad (as the band couldn’t hear each other) they are tight as hell

The film doesn’t do a very good job of signposting that there is an extra half hour of concert footage coming after the credits - at the screening I was at quite a few people left during the credits.

Did want to see this but cant see it playing near me.

Could watch or read about the bwatles all day. Find them fascinating


#9

What’s his favourite The Beatles album?


#10

yeah man, I’ve heard a couple of needle drops. sounds superb. real two-fingers up to the haters who say they couldn’t play for shit, too. as you say, tight as fuck


#11

I think he’d have to say… Abbey Road. He has the poster on his wall too. Mainly watches youtube videos of them, and “plays” (clangs tunelessly) his guitar while singing along.


#12

Pretty sure there’s no swearing.

Surely law require it to have a rating though, they’ll be one somewhere.


#13

mate, it;s a 12A and someone has confirmed there’s swearing up there

you no longer have any authority on the beatles


#14

Some things are rating exempt. Sports is one, pretty sure music is another.

A load of WWF VHS’ in the 90s didn’t have a rating.

Edit: Ignore me. Just looked it up. If its shown in cinemas it needs a rating, unless the local authority has decided otherwise.


#15

Mannnnnnn so bummed out, it was okay n all but they literally skipped the bit of their career I liked and ended suddenly. "They never played live again, released Sargent pepper and 5 other albums the end’ 6/10


#16

Tbf it was the touring years


#17

Trueeeee but stilllll


#18

I assumed you were taking the piss with that?

TBH, having watched 8 hours (or whatever) of the Anthology can I ask what this has left to show me?


#19

Yeah the best thing that happened to the Beatles was not playing live. Because suddenly they didn’t care about whether they could replicate the songs on a stage. They just made so many advances in production for a pop release, experimenting with anything and everything.
