A Hard Day’s Night (2014 Release)

The Beatles

The Criterion re-release of The Beatles’ first film A Hard Day’s Night is here for the movie’s 50th Anniversary! It was shown in theaters beginning July 4th, and stayed there for a few weeks in some instances, giving fans a chance to see the film as if it just premiered, and others not familiar with The Fab Four to see it for the first time.

Most hardcore Beatles fans have been eagerly awaiting to get their hands on the DVD or three-disc DVD/Blu-Ray deluxe set since they heard rumors of it being made, and now they can… and probably have!

This re-release is significant as the video was completely remastered from old tapes for a “4K digital restoration, approved by director Richard Lester,” and the audio was remixed by Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer George Martin.

I was able to pick up the single-disc DVD, and can attest to the fact that it looks and sounds great! The movie is so entertaining as it is, that the clarity of the audio and video allow you to become completely immersed in the fast paced one-liners and great musical performances. The brilliance that the movie was shot with really shines through in this quality too! The innovative shots and filming techniques used are a big part of what makes the movie so enjoyable.

The film shows that The Beatles were relatively good actors and showcases their sense of humor. I’d recommend buying this film to anyone, and if you are a Beatles fan, this new release is a must have!
