depends;  AHDN for artistry and photography, but Yellow Submarine and MMT for fun

I like Yellow Submarine. I would buy that on DVD but wouldn't buy any of the others. I watched Magical Mystery Tour over Christmas after watching the BBC documentary of its making. Quite interesting. The furore it caused when it first aired in a prime time slot on Boxing Day (1967?) was quite amusing to reflect on. Most of the nation was not braced for an experimental art house film!

Let it Be is my favorite film and album of theirs.  Some of their finest raw songs, no bullsh*t fluff like Abbey Road, and the thrill of being able to see them perform live on the roof....even if they stole that bit from the AmericansWink......Airplane did the same thing a bit prior.

The Beatles did that instead of playing live in an empty venue - an idea copied by Pink Floyd a couple of years later.

Least we forget that not all that glisters is gold, thanks for reminding us of this travesty.

I never saw Sgt Peppers LHCB and from what i hear it is a strategic move to avoid at allcosts.

Yet I am intrigued it must have had some merits - at least one decent scene surely.... though I have no idea what to expect.

Best bits of Beatles movies:

Hard Days Night - title scene, And I Love Her, outdoors jumping scene,the press interviews "I'm a mocker", all the songs really

Help! snow scene... thats about it really

Magical Mystery Tour- Spaghetti, Harrison's trip, title scenes, Walrus, All ya need is Love, Foool on the hill, Ringos ma

Yellow Sub - All together Now, title scenes, blue meanies, most songs, esp the psychedelic trippy scenes

Let It Be - all the songs are great - but cant remember the scenes in this one

Yellow Submarine. I received it from my uncle (who was a priest) for my birthday when I was 5. I am by no means getting rid of it even though I am lacking in both a television and a VHS system. Smile

I once saw a tribute album of covers of this - yes, that's right, a tribute album covering this film.  Billy Preston's good in the film though

I watched MMT recently, apart from the songs it's not all that good. I do like Help despite the silly plot but AHDN and YS are the best two. I really need to get YS on BluRay.
