Help! was The Beatles second movie. Unlike the earlier A Hard Day’s Night, Help! was filmed in colour. Unlike A Hard Day’s Night, Help! featured a silly plot in which Ringo‘s life is in danger due to some Eastern cult. The plot is just silly but the songs are again fantastic. Included this time around are Help!, Ticket To Ride, You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away, You’re Going To Lose That Girl and The Night Before, all guaranteed to get you at least tapping your feet if not singing along. This is John, Paul, George and Ringo in great form and a very good film. Perhaps my favourite Beatles movie.

A Hard Day’s Night was The Beatles debut film. It’s quite a funny, silly film, full of great music. John, Paul, George and Ringo aren’t great actors, but they certainly looked like they were having a lot of fun, as was Wilfred Bramble as Paul’s Grandfather.This is the film that is about a fictional day in the boy’s lives and features the title song, as well as I Should Have Known Better, Can’t Buy Me  Love, And I Love Her and She Loves You. I probably prefer the silliness of  Help! to this one, but A Hard Day’s Night is still a great film.

I love The Beatles. I have been listening to their music since the day that I was born, thanks to my parents. In fact I think I knew all the words to most of their songs by the time I was five. Whilst kids today listen to crap like Lady Gaga, and the previous generation listened to The Wiggles, I grew up with the Fab Four. In fact, I have only ever met one person who disliked The Beatles, and they had such abysmal taste in music that their opinion meant nothing anyway.
