Magical Mystery Tour Blu-ray

Magical Mystery Tour

Written by The Beatles
Starring: Paul McCartney, John Lennon,
George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Victor Spinetti, Jessie Robins, Mal Evans
Apple Corps
Not Rated | 52 Minutes
Release Date: October 9th

Magical Mystery Tour, the colorfully wild mess of a film by The Beatles, has been released on Blu-ray and it’s one of the few times in the bands illustrious and innovative career that the term “mixed bag” can be applied when summing up one of their projects.

But suffice to say, Magical Mystery Tour, while an absolutely charming and irresistible piece of delectable eye candy to gaze upon, and even more so now with the spit and polish of the Blu-ray remastering, still ultimately remains nothing more than a curio of The Moptops at their psychedelic peaks, still in the cosmic high of their Sgt. Pepper period, the idyllic peace, love carefree metaphoric lounging on eiderdowns in their native England. It’s a hollow and disjointed piece that has it’s only reliable saving grace in the wonderful soundtrack, which is remastered as well, with the memorable musical strains of The Beatles in all their sonic glory at peak levels.

The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour

Magical Mystery Tour, the 1967 feature film by The Beatles, comes to Blu-ray and DVD and even a large Deluxe Box Set (Blu-ray/DVD/double-vinyl EP) on October 9th. This long-awaited release, which has never gotten a proper treatment for the home market until now, is jam packed with extras, is fully restored, and of course contains some of the best known and beloved Beatles songs of all time.

The film was originally an ambitious project by the Fab Four, mainly by Paul McCartney, which was a wild and crazy kinetic offering of disjointed sketches and sequences by way of the Beatles’ trip on a large bus to the seaside, with vivid, crazy, and funny characters along the way, is a perfect visual primer to the wild psychedelic 1967 Summer of Love that preceded its release, originally shown on British television in late 1967.
