Most feature flicks have to do with some sort of ongoing struggle, a man against the crowds, a team of bad soccer players trying to make it to the big time, a young girl doing her best to fit in, however, it’s the movies where the struggle is against an enormous and wily beast in HD, that really make for some great popcorn entertainment. Here’s a look at some of the most memorable man vs. beast scenes on the big screen. Check out these movies via your local satellite TV connection.

Anchorman: Ron Burgandy, portrayed by the sinfully funny Will Ferrell is an anchorman who will do anything for a good story; in this particular case, his story involves a bear at the San Diego zoo. Burgandy jumps into the bear pit to save the girl of his dreams. Burgandy’s coworkers join him in the madness but the bears win and hilarity ensues.

Orca: This is an older movie, it came out in 1977, so there aren’t really any stellar effects that need to be scene in HD, however, Orca still packs a punch. In it, Captain Nolan, played by Richard Harris is pursued by a gigantic orca after he kills its calf and its mate. In this battle, again the animal wins. The witty orca somehow sets a fishing village on fire to lure out the not so noble capitan and he beckons him with his fin as if saying, ‘let’s get this fight on’.

The Edge: In this movie, Alec Baldwin and Anthony Hopkins are up against the odds. They survive a plain crash only to find themselves trying to make it in the wilderness. Unfortunately, a giant grizzly bear decides to pursue the men. They eventually manage to get a handle on that situation, however, they aren’t able to survive each other.

Deep Blue Sea: In this 1999 movie, the ubiquitous Samuel L. Jackson and crew are up against super smart giant sharks. The sharks were the subject of scientific experiments which increased their IQs and their killing prowess. As Jackson tells his crew to man up, he’s gobbled up by one of the beasts. It’s a great little scene to watch in HD.

Caddyshack: Bill Murray is pitted against a vicious gopher in this comedy. He hunts the things down, using every weapon he can think of. Unfortunately, in his effort to weed out the gophers from formerly pristine and rodent free golf course, he makes a royal mess of things. I guess you could say the gophers win this one.

Jaws: You can’t have a man versus beast movie list without mentioning Jaws; this is the classic beast movie. Rob Schneider and his crew have to fight this monstrosity which is attacking people left and right. It’s an epic struggle. The music, of course, still makes people shiver and probably more than a few beach goers remain beachside because of this movie.
