I got The Beatles RockBand for my birthday. I played through the story mode, and it was entirely delightful. But, the real unexpected treat came in the animations. I should have known because, despite its age, Yellow Submarine is still one of my favorite animated movies of all time. Beatles music set to trippy animations make for one of the coolest things ever. Watch this and then try to tell me that you wouldn't watch an animated Beatles movie.
And there's an ending
animation that made me happy over Ringo's shoes and Paul's adorable lips and teeth. Oh, and John's cute smugness and George's handsome stoicism. :D
It would be better than Across the Universe because it would actually star The Beatles as characters (they didn't do their own voices in any of the animated stuff, so it's not like they would have to leave George and John out). There would be no cheesy, half-assed romantic plot, and pretty much all those other flaws Across the Universe had (though I don't believe it was a bad movie--just flawed). Plus, I love them and would do anything for more shit to fangirl over. AND. I love cracked-out hippie visuals.
Well, c'mon, some animation company out there. Get on it.
