With the large number of DVD and Blu-Ray releases of "A Hard Day's Night" it is easy to get confused. This is the 2014 release which includes a newly remixed true 5.1-channel audio track (which Giles Martin worked on) as well as a restored original mono audio track (done by Ron Furmanek). The video has been restored using a 4K process. Basically this release has the best of the video and audio elements. The mastering for the discs was performed by Criterion.

You may also see a listing of A Hard Day's Night Blu-Ray that was released in Canada around 2010. This is a different version that has a 5.1-channel track "created from" the restored mono audio. It was mush and very tough to listen to. Please don't get fooled with this version.

The new 2014 version has the music audio taken directly from the multitrack master elements as well as the dialog from the restored audio. This should be the definitive version from a long time to come.

Looking forward to hearing this version.

I watched this DVD with nine-year-old Logan, who said, " I could look at this all day." My sentiments exactly. This is a movie to own, because it reveals something new with every viewing and is unfailingly exhilarating. The Beatles changed their world, and still have a message for ours.

I just reveled in the fun and the great music. But those who want to know where it came from will appreciate the little book that comes with the DVD. There's commentary about the place of this film in pop culture, its influences, its role in a class society, and how the documentary flavor was achieved. The director's creative vision is contrasted with his exuberant, deliberate lack of planning. For serious film buffs, there are factoids about cameras and film type used, techniques of shooting and editing, and the behind- the-scenes lowdown on specific scenes.

The production values of this DVD are stellar. Current technology was used to great effect to clean up the quality of aging video and audio.

Reviewed about 50,000 times maybe in its life but as my wife just said, it was like going on a ride at a theme park. This is pure fun!

Making it fun (of course) is the music but this is The Beatles at infancy. Pure, unique and all shot in the UK in stunning BLACK & WHITE.

This film never gets old. Yes, maybe play it once and then put it away for a few years but that same thrill ride will come back with some amazing songs.

The perks: Upgraded to 4K and sound in 5.1. That alone justifies the purchase!

One of the first modern music videos still funny as heck. Great music, Who's the little old man. And little Ringo with his great proboscis weighing his head down. I love this movie.

I bought this for a gift (I already had the DVD). Anyone who grew up with the Beatles, this brings back lots of memories. Lots of good songs - you probably can't help singing along.

I had to laugh at Amazon's question "did it meet your expectations?" What could make millions of people happier, including me, than seeing this movie and bonus features, enjoying this music, and being in the company of these boys.

Much clear picture in Black and White than the old one. 5.1 audio sound more enjoyable.

A classic that every Beatles fan should watch! Great movie during the early stages of Beatlemania! An honest look into the personalities of John, Paul, George and Ringo. The soundtrack and performances were amazing!
