Rating: 3/5 -- The songs are still great. The foursome's waggish chemistry is still a wonder. But there's a lot of old ground, even old grind. Full Review

THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK supplies a month-by-month account of the band's brief tenure as a live band. Predictably full of great performing footage and incorporating new interviews with the too-few surviving witnesses...

Rating: 4/5 -- The material is uncontroversial to say the least, but hugely enjoyable with some remastered live performances that were previously drowned out by screaming girl fans. Full Review

The Beatles now belong to an honored past, stuck there like an obelisk, and yet here they are, alive-busting out all over, time and time again. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Full Review

Product Description:

Director Ron Howard (RUSH, APOLLO 13) takes a look back at the years when the Beatles were still a touring band, from their early performances in Europe in 1963 to their decision in 1966 to quit playing publicly in order to focus on their work in the studio. This documentary features archival footage of the Beatles' legendary concerts, as well as interviews with surviving band members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and famous fans such as Whoopi Goldberg, Sigourney Weaver, and Elvis Costello.
