The art style gave me nightmares when I was younger. Something about the way the faces look is eerie by every definition of the word.

@TheLemsterPju I really really don't blame you, I would've been scared out of my wits had I seen this as a kid. I'm kind of glad I didn't.

I just finished watching this and I honestly can't tell you what I think of it, it was surreal and artsy, sure. But it was so nutty and it might've actually been TOO out there for me. Which frankly I'm surprised I'm even saying that since I normally love weird, over the top stuff.

I really wanted to like this but I dunno, maybe I'll rewatch it someday and see what I think then. Not too sure if I liked all the filler in the middle of the movie, though. Then again I guess that's what happens when a guy who's not into the Beatles at all decides to go ahead and watch something Beatles-related. Although I did quite like the Sgt. Pepper movie. (I'm probably the only one who did.)

@Metabad Having just watched the movie for the fourth time just a few days ago, I could understand a kid not liking the surreality it provides, all preferential (I'm the only one of my family who really likes anything out there if done well). My all-time favorite scene in any movie in elementary was the Pink Elephants sequence from Dumbo, so maybe that's why this movie resonates well with me.

That said, I really do think you should give this one a second chance. The reason I think the surreality works is because not only does it space out and perfectly pace those moments, but it also has a bit of a creative commentary in its undercurrent (not just its humor), and its world is so enjoyable to traverse, you don't find yourself asking questions, but going along for the ride.

The only movie I could really try to compare it to is the Felix the Cat movie (which I decided to watch in its entirety last year... and wholly regretted doing so...). A movie like Felix creates no commentary to decipher, is so visually unappealing it's unlikeable, and even by surreal standards has you asking too many questions.

Extra footnote: I take it you might have, but even to non-Beatles people, I would HIGHLY recommend the 'Sgt Pepper's' album to anyone and everyone. It's in my opinion the best Beatles album, if not the best album of all time (I'm even listening to the full album right now as I type this). Yellow Submarine really does contain their best-ever work, minus Abbey Road/Hey Jude/Let It Be territory.
