I liked Help, because it had my favorite songs (You've got to hide your love away and You're gonna lose that girl), and it was funny.

I may be the only one to vote for Let It Be but I enjoyed seeing the Beatles as real people.
It was also interesting to see them at work and hear songs "evolve."

I had to vote for Yellow Submarine. That is the first Beatle's movie that I remember seeing as a kid. "I got a hole in me pocket".

I voted "Magical Mystery Tour" because that thing is an acid trip and a half... But I also like that album quite a lot.

I like "Let it Be" but it's very sad to see them falling apart... but it includes the famous roof concert which is one of the most important moments in rock history. Imagine being one of the lucky few who happened to be on Abbey Road that day and watching them perform for the last time.

The 'concert' actually took place on the rooftop of Apple HQ in London's Saville Row (just round the back of Regent Street)...apparently, they were kicking up such a racket that the police were called to put a kibosh on the proceedings - if memory serves, I think that's how the 'Let It Be' film ends...(but I've not seen it in a while...)

My favourite? 'A Hard Day's Night'...which sums up Beatlemania perfectly (in fact, the film was going to be called 'Beatlemania' at first, but The Fabs vetoed that idea completely...)

They're all fantastic, but 'A Hard Days Night' is the best

I liked "Help".  Has anyone out there seen "How I Won the War'?  John played Private Gripweed in
that Richard Lester movie that starred Michael Crawford who has gone on to "Phanthom of the Opera"  fame. It was good in its time, but I'm sure it is very dated now.

I know orginally I said I liked A Hard Day's Night. However, I saw Help! and I thought it was hilaurious so now I have decided that I like Help! better. There was more humor in it then in A Hard Day's Night and it was just all around more funny. My friend told me that the humor in Help! was different then A Hard Day's Night and I have to agree with her.  Also, in my opinion the ending was much better.

I chose "Help!" because of the bit where all 4 Beatles go into their front doors in what appear to be adjacent houses in a street.
However once they get inside it transpires that it's one great big knocked through house.
As a kid watching that film I thought this was the coolest thing I'd ever seen.

I like all the other films also :).
