There’s one thing from the past few weeks that has stood out as the big thing to watch. I’m only part way through because it’s a bloody long watch, but that said I’m enjoying it, even if it is the ultimate hangout watch with not much happening. Things such as seeing Paul McCartney bring the song Get Back together in the space of five minutes as well worth the runtime. It always serves to remember that these guys are still under 30 as well at the time.
I’m still on the fence as to whether Peter Jackson’s complete inability to edit anything down and lean towards the long and sprawling is the right choice or has alienated a group of viewers who aren’t going to commit a good chunk of a day to watching this. Even my wife, a Beatles fan, has checked out and is just going to return to watch the rooftop gig at the end. Still check it out and make up your own mind. A watch for fans of songwriting and not just the Beatles
