Question >> What exactly is "THE BEAST"?


(from the web site http://www.lovethebeast.com.au)

What if you were a Hollywood movie star with an obsession for cars and racing? You would probably read every script with even the tiniest link to the subject matter, in the hope that you could tell a great car story of the likes of “Grand Prix”, “Le Mans” or “Mad Max”. Then one day you happened to open your garage door and sitting there, right in front of you, was the film you had been searching for.

This is what happened to Eric Bana and this time around, the co-star is his very own Ford GT Falcon Coupe- THE BEAST. Eric realized the story was in fact, about him, his first car, a lifetime of ownership and a lifetime of friendship. He set about documenting his own 25 year long love story.

A simple tale of one man’s ongoing relationship with his very first car.

After years of precious restoration, Eric and his three closest friends, decided to enter the car into one of the most gruelling and dangerous motor races that exists: The Targa Tasmania Rally. This would be a personal Everest for both man and machine, until…on day 4 of the race, tragedy strikes. The man who was hell bent on trying to convey how much he and those around him loved “THE BEAST”, had just destroyed it.

Eric has now unwillingly cast himself in his own real life drama. We follow him from inside the race car to the surreal world of the red carpet. This compelling true story follows Eric’s progression as a car lover, and as a person conflicted by what he has done. The personal and social pressures mount up in the face of rebuilding a car that means so much to him. Along the way Eric seeks guidance and wisdom from not only the inner sanctum of his three life long friends but also Jay Leno, Jeremy Clarkson, and Dr. Phil.

Courtesy of Madman and SearchSA, you can win 2 single passes to see this very personal movie about a man and his beloved beast.

Question >> The "Doomsday Clock" measures the tension between which two countries?

Synopsis:



A complex multi-layered mystery advernture, "Watchmen" is set in an alternative 1985 United States of America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society and the "Doomsday Clock" - which charts the USA's tension with the Soviet Union - is permanently set at five minutes to midnight.

When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion - a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers - Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future.

Their mission is to watch over humanity... but who watches over the watchmen?

Win a Watchmen poster signed by the Director Zack Snyder as well as Malin Akerman and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, plus a double in-season pass to see the movie. Plus 19 consolation prizes of a double in-season pass to see Watchmen.
