The KCLS has a second generation copy of the Beatles "Help". Souvenirs are included in the package which makes it fun. Please don't take any and thanks to KCLS for ordering this really cool edition of "Help".

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Love it, watch it as much as I can. Beatles music from beginning to end, and an entertaining story line to boot. My fave songs. The storyline of them running from here to there because of this Ring is hilarious and the nutcase Priest chasing them with the hoods in brown skirts is actually the same actor from the original "OMEN" movie with Gregory Peck but with the Beatles, he's funny.
Always sad when its over, although the ending beach scene where everybodys fighting is glorious. And then this bit about the Singer Sewing Machine??!! I mean, the humor is madcap.... I loop it right back to the beginning.
Thanks-

i thought it would be more music which is the only thing that saved this film. mostly quirky anticks, humor, etc...kinda funny but the music saves it.
