Yellow Submarine Review


OK
This psychedelic trip into the minds of the Beatles is certainly memorable, but you have to wonder what this movie would be like without the awesome collection of Beatles tunes punctuating the soundtrack. Not much, I'm afraid. The battle against the Blue Meanies has all the drama of Sesame Street. The meeting of the Nowhere Man has all the drama of the meeting of a walking potato. If you're a Beatlemaniac, make sure you opt for the DVD, with a remastered soundtrack, five languages worth of subtitles, and enough extras to fill the Albert Hall.

Darling Lili Review


Terrible
Chances are you've never heard of Darling Lili, despite Blake Edwards as director and Rock Hudson and Julie Andrews as stars. Hell, audiences in 1970 barely heard of it, because it was a disaster on release. It's so bad it never even merited an appearance on VHS. Well, DVDs are cheap, and Blake Edwards is still alive and enjoying new noteriety thanks to a recent Oscar appearance... and Andrews is in the news, too. So why not put out a director's cut of what might be the worst film either of them ever made?

Problem #1 can be seen in a premise: It's a film that no self-respecting studio head should have ever greenlit, but inexplicably somebody did. Who in their right mind could have thought that anyone would want to see a musical about Mata Hari? Not even the real Mata Hari, but a Mata Hari-like character plying her trade during World War I.
