Watch Yellow Submarine
Yellow Submarine 2012 is a film that is a remake of the 1968 film of the same name. The film opens with Pepperland being invaded by the Blue Meanies. The Lord Mayor quickly sends Old Fred out to get help. To do so, Old Fred takes a yellow submarine. Old Fred quickly makes it to Liverpool, where he meets a down-and-out Ringo Starr. Ringo takes pity on Old Fred and quickly collects John, Paul and George to come help. The group's journey, set to many of the Beatles classic hits, takes them through various parts of the ocean. They pass through the sea of time, the sea of science, the sea of monsters, the sea of nothing (where they form an alliance with Jeremy Hillary Boob), the Foothills of the Headlands, and then finally the sea of holes. Jeremy is kidnapped, and the Beatles set off in earnest to try and get him back. After passing through the sea of green, the fab four arrive in Pepprland, which is a sorry sight with thorns and thistles everywhere. The applebonker meanies try to attack the Beatles, but the Beatles prove to be worthy adversaries, and the applebonkers are defeated. The Beatles then begin to call up the forces by playing Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The music weakens the Blue Meanies and begins freeing the inhabitants of Pepperland. With statues breaking free all around, everyone begins fighting the Blue Meanies. The Blue Meanies, out numbered by everyone, quickly begin to go back to their homelands in the mountains. The film then ends with the Beatles in their submarine waving goodbye to all of their friends in Pepperland. The Beatles then submerge and are on their way back to their native land of Liverpool. The film ends with the real-life Beatles appearing at the end to sing "All Together Now."
