Pepper Album” will screen in Chicago at area Landmark Cinemas on February 6th, 2017.

Film Review: History & Pure Fun in ‘The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years’

Beatles: Eight Days a Week

CHICAGO – They were the greatest show on earth, for what it was worth. But what they also were was one of the most fascinating show business stories in history.

A Hard Day's Night

Blu-ray Review: The Beatles’ ‘Help!’ Given Loving HD Restoration

Help!

CHICAGO – After the massive success of “A Hard Day’s Night,” director Richard Lester was given more money and more creative freedom to direct “Help!,” a film seen as a disappointment by many at the time, including The Beatles themselves, but historically appreciated (as are most things John, Paul, George, and Ringo). The Beatles 1965 classic has been given a loving restoration, particularly in the sound department, and accompanied by interesting special features and attractive packaging. It’s a great gift idea for The Beatles fan in your family.

Nowhere Boy, Aaron Johnson

Video Game Review: Everyone Should Play ‘The Beatles: Rock Band’

CHICAGO – “The Beatles: Rock Band” is easily the most fulfilling music gaming experience to date.

DVD Review, Video: ‘Paul Simon and Friends’ a Riveting Tribute to Legendary Musician

Paul Simon and Friends

CHICAGO – There are dozens of concert films and music DVDs out there. Most of them are interchangeable collector’s items made almost solely for diehard fans of the band or artist.

  • Not One Batu

    CHICAGO – The State of Hawaii may be one of the most misunderstood in America. Because of its reputation as a tourist mecca, the fact that native peoples live and work there like any other place is hard to imagine.
