Audience Reviews for The Beatniks

  • Sep 19, 2018
    A gang of raucous noncomformists are living on the edge of society, waiting for the cops to kill them in a as-pointless-as-their-lives-already-are shootout, when their leader is singled out as a possible vocal sensation (like a Frankie I-wanna-be-the-next-Frank-Sinatra Avalon kind've way). This breaking from the ranks the gang cannot tolerate, and the trouble begins. Beatniks? I don't see no beatniks around here. the gang only adopts some few beatnik-like attitudes to secure their waiting to be shot lifestyle. There's good singing though.

    Watching some of the old MST3K episodes available for streaming on Hulu and Netflix (there is a different random selection on each platform). Whether it is Joel or Mike watching these awful movies with the bots I do not envy their torture. Their snarky comments add some entertainment value, but my ratings are based on the movie's quality itself and not the commentary broadcast from the satellite of love. Who could believe these 30 year olds are teenage hoodlums. The script and performances are atrocious. The filmmakers have a poor understanding (and obvious fear) of what beatniks are.

    A PSA movie about a greaser with the talent of singing being threatened by his jealous friends. Contrary to the title, there were no beatniks.

    This movie shows the problems of having bad friends who wont stop hanging around. The main character is annoyed with them and so is the audience. The movie is pretty good, but it's predictable, it could have been better.
