  • 'The Beast'

    I was surfin' through our Encore channels a while ago and came upon this movie : 'The Beast'. I've seen it 3 times now, and I really like it.

    Has anyone else seen this movie?

    If so, what do ya think about it?
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

        Yea, it was a great movie. It's a great transition from that normal Hollywood junk.

            Agreed. This movie came out in the late 80's when I was working in a movie theatre - and I used to spend a LOT of time "supervising" the people watching that film so I had an excuse to stand there and watch it myself. The opening attack on the Afghan village is dead scary to watch...and the fanaticism of the captured rebel gives some good insight into the muslim terrorists we are facing in that part of the world today.

              I have it on DVD. I'll be the one discenter and say it's pretty bad.

                Not bad for a B movie. Being a greensuiter I think I spent most of my time going "B/S" at the smallest of innacuracies (but don't we all?). I'd love some insight into the Screenwriter's inspiration.
                Welcome to the adult world. Kinda sucks when you have to be the responsible ones and take all the pot shots from the chagrined lefties and mongoloid celebrities, who don't know their collective posteriors from sound economic policy. - 98ZJUSMC

                  Got it also. Wouldn't call it bad but wouldn't call it great either. Kinda surprised so many do like it here since I have heard many criticisms of it though.

                      I think it was based off of a book called "Nanawatai"

                          It is also very allegorical. It is first and foremost a microcosm of the entire war, and ultimately a fight between "good - of sorts - and "evil" in the form of the tank commander and the opposing crewman.

                          The piece I had the hardest part with, however, was the tank "getting lost" in the first place.

                              There's another one out there. The 9th Company I think it's called. It's all in Ruskie talk though.
