Your Tuesday Essay Question

Should The Beatles' A Hard Days Night be colorized for a new generation?

Over at the Steve Hoffman forums, they're having a spirited discussion on this very subject.

Personally, I think the mere fact the idea is being bruited is a clear sign of the end times, but I'm obviously a purist.

In any case, I'm of the opinion that Night should have brand new CGI effects inserted...

...and thus turned into a Japanese monster movie.

oh it should be remade with a K-pop band standing in for the mopsters.

You triggered my memory of watching Herman and the Hermits in "Hold On!"

Funny idea and concept. But this generation wouldn’t give a shit anyway. I’ll keep watching the original in black and white.

Never. Never in a million years. Ever.

A pox on any A-hole that suggests "A Hard Day's Night" be colorized!!!

But it wouldn't be a bad idea to have the film subtitled with annotation of the Liverpool and British slang I have never understood!!!

Long as they replace the music from the opening credits with "Yakety Sax", I'm cool.
