Don Coscarelli's The Beastmaster

Being one of my favorite movies I watch this thing like on a regular basis, however I have always wondered why this movie got a PG rating? I mean there is nudity in it!

Monkeys don't count.

It was before PG-13 was a rating, which is what it probably would have gotten. 16 Candles also had nudity and was PG before PG 13. Quick nudity used to be OK for PG.

Now I think any nudity will get an R, but I'm not certain.

I think that the nudity needs to be "non-brief" or of a sexual nature before it gets an "R".

I think that's pretty much it. I also think to get away with nudity in a film, you have to have the backing of a major studio. I don't think the nudity in Titanic would've gotten a pass in a small independant film, but with a major studio it gets by ok.

I still say nudity automatically gets you an R rating, regardless of its nature.

I used to watch this movie quite often, but had a taped-off-television vhs that didn't have any nudity.

Naked Tanya Roberts was the main reason I watched this movie over and over again back in the day!

Those were my reasons as well.

This thread made me want to watch this only to find that it isn't available anywhere for streaming.

Re: Don Coscarelli's The Beastmaster

I watched my DVD last week. May need to watch it again today. I always had a huge crush on Tanya Roberts. The DVD has outtakes with extra nudity from her (in the form of an Easter egg).

I'm pissed this isn't on BD yet. Someone get Shout Factory on the line.

That sucks.

This is not from Beastmaster but I hope it cheers you up, nonetheless.

Alright, I borrowed the dvd from my sister, so I'll see what I've always been missing.

Similar to how I never saw the full glory of Robocop until about 10 years ago. As a kid I had yet another taped-off-tv version with all of the violence removed. The full movie was an eye-opener.

Okay, just keep in mind this was pre-internet and I was 12 years old. 10 seconds of boobies on cable was what we lived for back then.

And HBO showed it all of the time so lots of chances for those 10 seconds. I know where my Divimax DVD is so I may give this a watch tonight.

"HBO"? You must mean "Hey, Beastmaster's On!"

Seriously, in 1983-84 "Beastmaster" must have been on at least three times a day on HBO.

Not that I minded; loved that movie. Even saw it in theaters back in the day. Listen I was a D&D-playing 11 year old ubergeek, anything REMOTELY sword-and-sorcerish was a must-see.
