5.0 out of 5 stars Beatles in 5.1-Canadian w\superb picture and surround sound, 30 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yellow Submarine [DVD] [1968] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Firstly let me say don't waste your hard-earned on overpriced new or second hand copies of this film priced at 40 or over. Buy a brand new sealed Canadian region-free copy with the brilliant soundtrack remastered into amazing 5.1 surround sound, the ability to play the isolated score and complete with booklet etc for 15 instead.

Both the new picture transfer and surround mix are brilliant, the latter being quite a rarity on old films like this. It's obvious that a lot of time and effort have been spent on both, unlike "Magical Mystery Tour" which languishes in poor quality mono with a picture to match - so full of damage and sparklies as to be near unwatchable.

I can't praise the Canadian issue of "Yellow Submarine" enough in those departments - everything is pristine as if it was a brand new film just released and of course it's in widescreen format too.

I would say that with all the psych imagery and music this one is best watched on a big screen in a darkened room with a tankard of ale and preferably something strong to smoke too (or if you're a non-smoker then bake it in little buns or make tea).

Absolutely amazing!

Hi, many thanks for the advice re the Canadian version, but when I went to their site, I found only very expensive copies available. In fairness, I'm not sure when it was first issued and perhaps it has been deleted?

"And of course its in widescreen format too." But it is a false widescreen and not the true aspect ratio that the original movie was issued in. If you want the top and bottom chopped off the image then buy the "widescreen" version.
