"Everyone in the World has Forgotten The Beatles. Everyone Except Jack…"


Synopsis:

“Jack’s life is changed forever when he discovers he is the only person on earth who remembers the music of The Beatles and must decide if he truly wants the spotlight, or if all he needs is love, after all.” – Universal Pictures Home Entertainment

My Take:

Jack Malik is a struggling singer-songwriter in an English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie. After a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed. Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, Jack becomes on overnight sensation with a little help from his agent.

I love movies. I love them because they have the power to stir our imagination, invoke emotion and, bring us back to various points in our lives through the stories that remind us what it was like at a particular time. Of course, there is more to it but, you get my meaning. Yesterday at its heart is a romance but, by the time you realize that you have been taken on a journey as seen through the eyes of Jack Malik, an everyman trying to find his niche in the world, who is suddenly faced with a bizarre circumstance that will bring him full circle.

Yesterday asks a lot from the audience as its off-beat narrative and blended themes could prove frustrating for exacting viewers. However, giving in to its whimsical elements and pointed attempts to pay homage to one of music’s most influential bands, you may just find yourself completely taken in by its charm. I watched Yesterday with my wife and son and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The chemistry between Himesh Patel and Lily James is simply wonderful. Patel’s vocals are icing on cake as he delivers the goods via his rendering of the various classic Beatles songs featured in the film.

Is Yesterday perfectly executed? Perhaps or perhaps not but, it’s most certainly a spirited, fun and feel good film that has its heart in the right place. I look forward to revisiting it.

Yesterday comes to Ultra HD Blu-ray from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment featuring 2160pHEVC encoded video and lossless Dolby Atmos/TrueHD 7.1 channel sound.

Yesterday garnered a solid report from me on its video quality in 1080p. Its presentation in Ultra HD, was rendered from an 8K source/4K DI. Color reproduction is consistent, with primaries like blue, red, and green appearing richer, even a bit more delineated. Secondary hues look great as well. The increase in resolution is apparent, allowing the detection of minutia, even in wide angle shots, to be appreciable. Close-ups tend to offer better refinement and deeper resolvable textures on surfaces, clothing, and physical features, compared to the Blu-ray.

The same is true when comparing the video's dynamic range. Exterior sequences offer added punch, especially that take place in the light of day, such as the various exterior sequences in England, where the sun reflects off of objects etc. The darkened highlights in the film’s low-lit environs, have appreciable dimension and resolvable detail. I didn’t find that the film showcased high dynamic range as there weren’t any defining visual elements that drew upon its strengths but, in general I thought that the image looked excellent. Viewing Yesterday in Ultra HD wasn't a format defining experience however, I think its improvements makes it an easy choice for UHD fans.


Dolby Atmos:

In listening to the Dolby Atmos surround mix I found it to be of the moderately active variety that made effective use of the platform. Its use of audio objects placed above is a blend of atmospherics and discrete effects. When applied it creates a tangible level of immersion that coincides with the onscreen events nicely. There are a multitude of set pieces that show off the track’s blend of music and, smaller object sounds that create a wonderfully involving listening experience, that broadens the soundstage. I enjoyed the balance of atmosphere as well as the integration of discrete object placement. I think that it complimented the source material and drew me into the film when it mattered most.


For those not familiar with the details regarding Ultra HD Blu-ray you can refer to my article that includes some pertinent data on the subject. Here is the link:

Yesterday comes to Blu-ray Disc from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment featuring 1080p AVC encoded video and lossless Dolby Atmos/TrueHD 7.1 channel sound.

This film looks great on Blu-ray and features excellent video quality that exhibits high level detail, stable sharpness and revealing definition. Close ups are noticeably refined and revealing of the subtlest details within facial features and objects within the frame. Mid-level camera pans are equally enriching and offer excellent depth and dimension. When called for, colors are appreciably delineated with natural rendering and punchy primaries that stand out among the spectrum of secondary hues.

Contrast is boldly applied without overstatement as it enlivens colors and drives brightly lit scenes without whitewashing detail. Blacks are gradational and deep which emboldens sequences containing a mix of light and dark elements. Detail in uneven light and darkened environments reveal visible shapes and structure that enhances depth perception. This is a solid presentation that looked terrific on my big screen.

The 7.1 Dolby TrueHD surround mix does a great job presenting the track’s recorded elements. This soundtrack runs the gamut between passages of spoken dialog and music to engaging sequences that deliver enriching surround sound. Dialog rendering is terrific as it holds sway over the front soundstage. Dynamic range is excellent as the active elements within the surround mix resound with superior clarity and palpable deep bass transients.

Clarity is first rate which brings out the finely articulated nuance of background elements within the mix. Surround use is prevalent and achieves a high level of envelopment that is appreciably involving as effects are seamlessly blended to create a stable and detail rich sound field. I had a great time with this soundtrack and appreciated the attention to detail that went into its design.

Final Thoughts:

Yesterday may not resonate with all audiences, especially those that don’t have an appreciation for its whimsy and musical homage but, I found it to be delightful and fun. It comes to Blu-ray from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment in this Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack featuring sparkling overall video quality, excellent lossless sound, including a complimentary Dolby Atmos sound mix and a fan friendly supplemental set. Yesterday is well worth checking out and comes highly recommended on Blu-ray.

Saw this in the theater on a whim, absolutely loved it. A couple of nice scenes for us older Beatles fans ( I won't spoil them here.)



Glad it comes across on the UHD presentation. Definitely adding to my collection.

When I first saw this trailer I couldn’t wait to see it. The critics didn’t like it so much from what I had read but my wife and I loved it. A unique and very entertaining movie. And all that Beatles music! Can’t wait to watch it again. Just bought the disc + digital UHD on Vudu.

I was dragged kicking and screaming to the theater to watch this movie. Did not like it at all. I'm waiting for a two hour refund of my life.

I found it maudlin, manipulative, trite, and insincere. It was a thinly veiled excuse to showcase Beatles songs and maybe increase some downloads. Perhaps my opinion is colored by the fact that I DESPISE the Beatles and their songs and every time I hear John or Paul's voices or hear Imagine, I want to go out and punch someone in the mouf.

One good note is that the lead has a great singing voice that somewhat improves sickening and appalling songs.

I liked the movie a lot. I wish they would have went full MammaMia mode and given us full songs sung by him in context of the movie. They could have done it on this release but chose not to. Oh well.

I watched this last night and went into it with zero expectations. I felt very engaged for the first hour of the film, but the second half it lost me a little. Maybe I was expecting some soft of payoff? Decent movie, and I would watch it again for the music. The video is razor sharp and the audio is fine.

This idea would have made a great Monty Python movie. Of course it would be Eric Idle as the only man who remembered "The Beatles". It's probably better that Danny Boyle got ahold of this. Thanks for the review Ralph.

Not a Beatles fan but I found “Yesterday” to be kind, entertaining and well made musical. Instead of forcing songs to fit plot, like most musicals do, music here is presented completely organically and is well sang. While my wife was completely underwhelmed by La La Land, she loved Yesterday and believed characters on screen. Highly recommend for a relaxing movie night.

Very much agree as a musical, but not in the stereotypical break out into song and dance.

Can we talk about what a consistently great director Danny Boyle is? Film releases alone he's got a nice little catalog built up of films that vary across genres. Imagine the guy that directed the horrific and violent 28 Days Later also directed the utterly charming and quirky Yesterday.



Yesterday
T2 Trainspotting
Steve Jobs
Babylon
Trance
127 Hours
Slumdog Millionaire
Sunshine
Millions
28 Days Later...
The Beach (ugh)
A Life Less Ordinary (ugh)
Trainspotting
Shallow Grave


There's really only two there that I would consider bad, the rest are very good to great to genre changing classics. Add to this his TV work, the Olympics opening ceremony, and his DJing gigs, he's quite the chameleon, and deserving of more accolades and recognition than I think he gets.

Beatles fan.
Dave Vaughn and Ralph Potts like this.
