I bought this boxset on Monday, and boy was it heavy!
This is more than a DVD, this is pretty much the biggest and best box set I own!
The film has been beutifully restored and you would never believe it was made over 40 years ago. The colouring is gorgeous and consumes the living room. You will not be able to turn away!
HELP! also hasn't dated at all, it's still very funny and is also a great sequel to A HARD DAYS NIGHT. Leo McKern steals the show, and The Beatles themselves, well, great characters, played incredibly well by musicians. You could show this to a non-Beatles fan and they'd enjoy it. The songs, again, haven't aged at all and sound beutiful with a sound system installed into the tv. They'll sound great on a normal tv too, but if you've got all that 5.1 stuff, then you'll hear the differnce.
The bonus features are very good, in particular, the restoration process feature, which shows how they cleaned the film. Great feature.
Now, with this huge boxset you also get a book with some wonderful pictures, and a replica script (Beatles Two) which I thought was the original, until I saw on the back page 2007! It's that much of a replica!
You also get the original poster and postcards, as I said, The best box set I own!
