Director: Richard Lester
Year Released: 1965
Rating: 1.5

Sickeningly goofy Beatles propaganda centering around Ringo (the strange one) who has a magical ruby ring that is on his finger - and won't come off - inciting some secret society to try to sacrifice him to the Gods. If you find that last sentence awe-inspiring and magical, feel free to check it out - I, personally, can only tolerate so much pre-Austin Powers self-reflexive dry humor, lame puns and endless scenes of the Beatles (who are terrible actors and know it) amusing themselves by running around, deftly avoiding silly bad guys and having everyone else swoon over them. Too much flashiness becomes desensitizing and masks the dullness, though the "music videos" are lively.
