Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: "A Hard Day's Night" (1964)

I couldn't resist. The Criterion Collection of A Hard Day's Night is out now, and any chance to revisit the movie has to be taken. One of my recommendations for January, our month of musicals, what could have been and was expected to be, just a cheap and fast B-movie set to capitalize on the Beatles phenomenon turned into something a lot more innovative and timeless, thanks to its director Richard Lester. With no small amount due to the Beatles' charm, presence, sense of humor, and of course, the music. It's always a joy to watch and listen to, so here it is again in a specially restored edition- a must own for every Beatles fan.
