    I saw this yesterday and I can't wait for the finished piece. To me watching the Beatles play and rehearse the Let it Be songs was fascinating. There is no question that if they ever toured with modern sound systems they would have been incredible.

    I was hoping that the first response to this thread was from our very own Blowtorch, I'm a bit disapointed. :D

    It'll be interesting to A/B this film against 'Let It Be.' This one looks like fun, compared to the downer that 'Let It Be' was, which I guess is the point.

    Peter Jackson made an incredible restoration of old footage for his ww1 film, I imagine this will be technically easier to make. I'm really looking forward to what comes out of this, it's looks fun!

    That it's on Disney+ means it will be a pass for me.

    For those who don't know - this film is being done at the urging of Ringo, who wanted to counter the dour feel of 'Let It Be.'

    For me, I believe a direct line can be drawn from A Hard Day's Night (song and movie) to Get Back (song and now Peter Jackson's film edit and restoration). I watched the Peter Jackson clip and felt that almost euphoric feeling of long ago when I first heard A Hard Day's Night and watched the opening sequence of Richard Lester's film.

    From running to catch a train to performing live on a rooftop, what a wonderful ride it's been.

    "Why Don't We Do It on the Roof?"
    Sounds like a potential song title. ;)

    I remember seeing 'Let It Be' in a movie theater and leaving just feeling horrible afterward. Just non-stop gloom and acrimony from a band that delivered joy to so many people. And I remember wondering how they could have even participated in making that film if they hated each other that much.

    I can see why Ringo wanted to set the record straight. The 'music business' has killed many a good band, and it looks like The Fabs were among them.

    What I saw in the highlights were four friends having fun in the studio and making good music. It seemed contrary to the prevailing narrative that they disliked each other at this phase.

    I am looking forward to seeing the completed movie.

    I think a lot of the negativity they've spoken about in later years was internal; it's hard to see in much of the footage, and the 95+ hours of audio that have leaked over the years sound like fun too.
