It's best to leave well enough alone, Yellow Submarine is a great movie just the way it is.

@awc: Totally agreed.

As if a remake isn't bad enough, they have to use motion capture? That shit is way too uncanny valley for me.

On Wednesday night at Paul's Dallas show, they played scenes from the Beatle's Rock band game,though it looks nice, the animation is very video gamish, that's how Zemeckis wants to do Yellow Submarine, maybe he should do one on the Jonas Brothers instead,lol.
The Beatles can't be equaled or topped, no need to mess with a master.

EXACTLY.

And since we're talking about Rock Band, I'm actually very excited for this game. When Guitar Hero came out, my friends and I fantasized about a Beatles version. I'm so glad Dhanni Harrison had the idea. It looks really, really beautiful.

Still, Zemeckis can suck it.

There are posters everywhere about Rock Band, on every Blockbuster video's window.

I admit that I am interested in it, not sure if I will buy it, but there is some interest.

Should be a really great game. It's gotten good reviews, they did amazing things w/ the factual history of the band, it's beautiful, it's remastered... I'll be hooked. I'd say that the only bummer is the track list. It could be a whole lot more complete (Ticket to Ride being the only track off of Help!, for instance), but I suspect that there'll be a WHOLE LOT of downloadable content.

VHI Classic plays videos from the new game a lot lately. Keep your eyes peeled!

Thanks for the heads up on the videos, maybe they might even release a dvd of their official videos, once they see just how popular the Beatles still are, things might start happening.
