Beatles Get Back on Disney+

Why did this sit on shelves for so long? Watching them rehearse and form mew material is captivating to me. Each of them playing multiple instruments and just yelling out chords...just mesmerizing. Watching Paul strum chords on his bass and watching the birth of "Get Back" was must watch tv.

Still working through the Classic Albums series through the IMDb app on my Roku. Some of the selections are on Amazon Prime but the whole series is on IMDb

I guess Amazon bought IMDb back in 1998. We could add this to the list of something I learned today - well actually a couple days ago.

I’m in the midst of watching too but for various reasons, only able to view it in 30-45 minute segments. Wifey thinks it’s booooring as hell too but she’s obviously wrong. Laugh

I like to focus on George and Ringo to see how the discord between John and Paul affected them. George’s “I will play what and how you want, or I will not play at all if that’s what you want” outburst must have been building up for some time. And Ringo quit the group once before, did he ever feel that he should have stayed an ex-member?

Mine feels the same way too. 15 minutes in and she was like, "Where's the concert?". I've been watching this in about the same time constraints too but only because I back them up and rewatch a lot of little pieces to catch them. So far I've been able to pick about 8 songs in rough state that went on to become Beatles songs or solo material for them.

George was severely underused in the Beatles. The "Teapot" segment details how both John and Paul would relegate him to do their bidding...when and where...at least John had the guts to admit it and Paul said they should stop it. The damage was already done in George's mind though. He was through and his earliest solo work was a logjam of his ideas that were NEVER going to see the light of day with the Beatles. Kind of reminds me of the same mistake another iconic 70's band would make...and later regret...in believing their own hype and thinking other band members didn't contribute as much...hint, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.

To me the dynamics were right there for all to see, including the Beatles. They had done everything. Once you climb Mt. Everest what pinnacle do you seek to ascend? They pretty much did it through skill, hard work (circa the Hamburg years) and dogged determination. They KNEW they were good. They just needed a megaphone to announce it to the world.

The Beatles for me take many stages...Pop, Rock and Psychedelic Rock and a case could be made for Heavy Metal with "Helter Skelter". That's an awful lot of ground to cover and they did it masterfully. Sometimes, I read the lyrics alone as poetry and it stands up to some of the all time greats just in that regard. To watch behind the scenes interaction between them all was my Christmas gift watching this. It answered a lot of what I knew of them and it begs questions I've NEVER heard anyone ask any of them. They were breaking up and that's clear from this. It was just a matter of who's "shoulders" they were going to pin it on. John dragging Yoko to recording sessions (which Paul states NEVER happened before...only band members 8 hours a day) was used as the excuse. Nobody said no to John and John didn't put a lid on it when it was just plain obnoxious. Almost in the same manner nobody told Elvis to stop taking pills. Nobody was going to stop the insanity. The train has to go off track. I've now gone back to the 1st episode because I'm still finding little crumbs here and there. I put subtitles on even. I've always admired Peter Jackson's dogged perfection in his work and I think nobody but him could've put all of this down like he did.

If you were a fan of the Matrix movies don't watch the new one. It's just.... bad. It's not even the woke stuff. It's just a bad script and bad acting. It felt like Keanu Reeves wandered onto a movie set half asleep and they filmed it.

I saw it and took away something different. I could watch the 1st one and this newest one back to back and it would make sense out of the franchise. The other 3 were...2 should've been just one and elements of the animated one should've been in the live action ones. The downside for me was the killer soundtrack. It wasn't there. At all. There were some good fight scenes that could've been better with newer music that matched the intensity. I'm a huge fan of the franchise and it took me 3 times to watch the 1st one before I could grasp the story they were telling. In this one they let it slip a bit though.


Chris Sean Reid - I’m sure you can understand why our beloved parent company, Warner Bros., has decided to make a sequel to the trilogy. They informed me they’re gonna do it with or without us.

Thomas Anderson - I thought they couldn’t do that.


Chris Sean Reid - Oh, they can. And they made it clear they’ll kill our contract if we don’t cooperate.

Thomas Anderson - Really?

Chris Sean Reid - I know you said the story was over for you, but that’s the thing about stories. They never really end, do they? We’re still telling the same stories we’ve always told, just with different names, different faces and I have to say I’m kind of excited. After all these years, to be going back to where it all started. Back to The Matrix. I’ve spoken to Marketing…Tom?

Thomas Anderson - Yeah.

Chris Sean Reid - Are you all right?

Thomas Anderson - Yeah.

Chris Sean Reid - What were you feeling at that point?

Thomas Anderson - What was I feeling? I felt either I’m having a mental breakdown again or I’m living inside a computer-generated reality that has imprisoned me… again.

Chris Sean Reid - Not much of a choice.

Thomas Anderson - No.

Chris Sean Reid - Maybe it’s not as binary as that. Maybe there are other ways to understand what happened.

Thomas Anderson - Yeah.

Chris Sean Reid - Thomas, you are a suicide survivor gifted with a powerful imagination. Those facts have combined to create dangerous fictions in your life.


Given that you've seen it, you can fill in the gaps.

I made it through 3 episodes, can tell it will become very complex. A bit slow to unfold but I'm intrigued.
Love the weird premise of Barry's desired "career change".

It took until about halfway through episode 6 to hook the wife too, but we both were hoping for more than just 8 episodes of season 1

Mayor of Kingstown...stellar show.

Gritty. Well acted and great cast.

The support music sets the tempo for the show instead of being shoehorned in.

Dr.Madvibe & MACS.....

I'd like my life back. Just finished season 5 of GOT.

On the plus side, Cersei's walk of shame was nice.

But.....Snow get's snowed?

If I'm this disappointed now, and you guys loved this show, I'm not going to the point of watching through to the end to see something you agree is disappointing.

Going to find something else to waste my time on.
