The original Highlander is so fricking good.

The original Highlander is so fricking good. It's amazing to me that it somehow got turned into a huge franchise that completely missed the point and dropped the ball immediately by trying to explain everything. It's the Space Jockey all over again.

        Holy shit you're right. Id never heard this before but that transition is godawful. From ascendant rock god anthem to fricking 90s high school comedy nu-punk bullshit in seconds flat.

        this is literally mcr and co&ca in a nutshell
        the downside of being influenced by bands like rush, glam metal was a mistake

        >and then...
        i cut it and listen to it in a loop with the visual intro of the film +Connery+ Kurgan, it is great. Remove the weak part.

        >Remove the weak part.
        there is no weak part, even the weakest/worst queen song shits hard on the competition
        mind you princes isn't even the best queen song in the film (or the worst for that matter)

        just watched it the other day and thought the bad guy looked like dark henry cavill

        cavill was signed on for some time to play mcleod in the reboot/remake but luckily the film is never happening since it's unnecessary

    you never really get a sense of them being the actual group of last highlanders because besides the main two guys, they all die like mook. it also never seems like they ever get any actual power from anyone after killing them since their fighting skills never seem to improve in hundreds of years and with lots of magic power

          Check out his filmography, he's pretty good. Shawshank, Buster Scruggs, Starship Troopers. Lots of smaller roles in decent movies and he is consistently good in all of them. The Kurgan is probably his best role, admittedly.

      Lowland Scottish vs. Highland Scottish physiognomy. Ironically enough the lowanders are tall, dark and handsome (think Sean Connery, Tom Selleck, Craig Ferguson) borderline meds, while the highlanders are stocky inbred gingers (think Jimmy Somerville, count dankula etc.)
      Lowlander is a terrible name for a movie though

    The funny thing is it would be simple as frick to reboot this franchise.

    Get a flashy director good with style visuals (special effects not really required)

    Write a basic barebones john wick style script that doesnt suck

    Have bad ass sword fights.
