Nice beginning to the movie but once they covered up to the White Album there was little to no information about the White Album, Abbey Road or Let It Be other than the rooftop concert. Felt like an incomplete movie.....my wife felt the same about it.

GREAT double DVD early Beatles documentary. Lots of fun video and excellent clips from their early performances.

Great for people who know absolutely nothing about The Beatles. Very disappointing for hardcore fans like myself (I watched their plane land at JFK on 7 February 1964). Howard has covered no new ground. The new interview bits from Paul, Ringo and Larry Kane were fun to hear. The thing that bothered me the most was all the colorized black & white footage. To say it looked horrible is to compliment it. The bonus disc actually has more entertainment value than the film. Again, if you are new to The Beatles, it's a good watch. Otherwise, pull out that old copy of Anthology that you have and watch it again.

Must see for anyone because this DVD shows the impact the Beatles had on world wide culture. Also, this band kicked ass live!
Must see for Beatles fans because of the rare footage on-stage and in the studio.
I just read "Beatles '66" which is a good book that coincides with this era.

Really good doc, told mainly in the words of the Fab Four, themselves. The live music is easier to hear than ever and surprisingly good.
Sadly, no second disc in the copy that I borrowed. From other reviews, I think it must be getting loaned out separately.

The copy I received form CALS was just the bonus disc, and did not contain the movie.

I've seen so many documentaries about the Beatles that I didn't think I could learn anything new, but this little gem by director Ron Howard has some hidden nuggets that are worth seeing. "Eight Days a Week" focuses mainly on the time when the Beatles were constantly touring, which began when they did and ended in the summer of 1966. Because of this, the film doesn't cover their final 3 to 4 years, when, in my opinion, they made the bulk of their best music. Still, some of the concert footage is rare, and the impact they had on all things from pop culture (a well trodden path) to the desegregation of concerts in the south (a new and eye-opening revelation) make "Eight Days a Week" a must-see for fans of the Fab Four.

Make sure you set aside an extra couple of hours to watch the second disc with the special features - it is well worth your time!

Sadly this is not the movie, it's the bonus disc from the deluxe double DVD set. Weird.

This documentary chronicles why the band was fed up with touring, but brought them into the studio where they did some of their most acclaimed work. Very interesting and has some great concert footage from their world-wide tours and some great studio footage.
