The Beatles have arrived in high definition with the revelatory Blu-ray release of Yellow Submarine. The 1999 standard DVD reissue of the animated film, impressive as it was at the time, has been thoroughly trumped. For the Blu-ray, the film underwent a complete frame-by-frame restoration that has yielded jaw-dropping results, even if you’ve seen the previous DVD version dozens of times. The lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is similarly breathtaking. Regardless of how you feel about the film itself (and considering it was produced with very little actual Beatle input, some fans are justifiably disinterested in it), any fan of the band simply must hear the music in this form.
