Default How many times have you seen.....

your favorite Beatles movie?

I've seen HELP (my only Beatles movie *cries*) 29 time in the 3 weeks I've had it. I've got the thing almost memorized.

I can recite all the lines in AHND and Help!

I don't have much of a life, do I?

Hmm...

Well as many of you know help is my favortie movie and I couldn't even count how many times I've seen it. Before I owned it I had seen it 2 times and then I bought it in 2000. Since then I have probably watched it somewhere near or above 200 times. I used to put it on everyday after school and that was about 180 school days. And as of late Help is locked in my DVD player so it is the only DVD to watch for the last two weeks.

I've seen AHDN about 4 times.

MMT 3 times
YS approx 5 times
And I've never seen LIB

I've seen them all a number of times, but could only stomach Let It Be once. It isn't the best film out of the five (shock horror!) but it does have the entire rooftop concert which more than makes up for it

I would imagine that the adversity between all the Beatles during that time on film might not be the most pleasant watching experience.

I can't think of precise numbers, but I can pretty much recite A Hard Day's Night:
Who's that little old man?
What little old man?
That little old man
Oh, thats my grandfather
Thats not your grandfather!
It is you know
But I've seen your grandfather, he lives in your house
Thats my other one

Alright I'm stopping now

Default Re: How many times have you seen.....

In order of times viewed:
Yellow Submarine
Help!
A Hard Day's Night
Let It Be
Magical Mystery Tour

The first three, I've seen countless times - too many to comprehend. Let It Be - 3 times and MMT once.

We owned AHDN, Help!, and Let It Be when I was little, but I only saw Let It Be once or twice (I thought it was boring!) and I think I only watched AHDN & Help! about 10 times each. Then my older sister moved out and took her Beatles tapes with her, so I didn't see any of them for about 10 YEARS!

I finally bought Help! a few months ago, but I've probably seen the whole thing "only" 10-15 times since then. So most of you have seen it more than I have! Nowadays, I usually just skip right to the scene I'm looking for. I got AHDN on CD-ROM a few weeks ago, but I've only watched it twice (awful picture quality!) When the DVD comes out, I'm sure I'll watch it a few dozen more times.

I've never seen MMT, and I've seen Yellow Sub only once, when we rented it about 15 years ago. I enjoyed it though, so I'll probably watch it again soon. I'd like to see Let It Be again too - I think I'll appreciate it more now that I'm older.

Well, I own all of the on VHS and also have Yellow Sub on DVD. I've probably seen AHDN the most number of times, as it's my fave. The best was when my cousin, sister and I (around 1977) saw a Beatles triple feature of AHDN, LIB and YS and ended up sitting thru AHDN and YS twice!) I guess I'd have to say that I've seen LIB and MMT at least 25 times each, Help and YS about 75 and AHDN over 100. I used to have AHDN memorized. I love that film!

Gee, I never thought to count, so I'll guesstimate. HDN: 35 x's (at least! it's my fave) Help: 20 x's Yellow Sub: 25 x's. That sounds about right. Yellow Sub is alot 'cuz my daughter loves it. It is a great kid movie and for those kids trapped in an adult body, like me. LIB: 0 MMT: 0 &lt;--geez, that's pretty sad for an old fart like me.. LOL!

i haven't seem mmt, i would REALLY LOVE to but! i've never counted how many times i've watched ahdn and help, which i have on video for eons, (quality is getting really bad now... can't wait to find them on dvd sitting on the shop shelves in sydney calling out to me "buy me, take me home!", which i would do most happily without a second thought!) i think i know most of the lines to both of them off by heart (i have a shocking short memory!) and i love both of them equally to death!!!!! when the Beatles anthology where on tv in australia, they showed the yellow submarine after it, and we recorded it and watched that countless times too...then as soon as it was available on dvd in aust. we bought it and watched that countless times too!!!

must find mmt, lib, and any other Beatle realated viewables!!!!!!!!

Lessee...I've been a Beatles fan for 28 years, seen AHDN an AVERAGE of 2-3 times per year...I guess I've probably seen it about 75-80 times, maybe more. Ditto Help and YS. The others I've probably seen less...I think I've seen Magical Mystery Tour maybe four or five times and LIB the same.
