That movie has to be good, since I am a huge fan of swords and fighting like that................But I would want to see Dolph Lungreen wieldin a sword, he might be a tough opponent to fight.

No, you are not. Great film for it's year/genre...but NOT as good as Conan: The Barbarian. BEST SWORD & SORCERY FILM. EVER. F*** LOTR! Conan, FTW!

Crappy short final sword fight in Masters of The Universe, IMHO.

Anything will be better than that fiasco. I still think the first movie was the best.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Highlander is the only film in history where the sequels are even worse than those in the Matrix series, without exception.
The original was gold, pure gold, and every sequel has tarnished it beyond repair.

Endgame was utter crap; who the hell ever told Wrestlers they could act? Mario Van Peebles is about the only thing worht watching in H3 and if Connery couldnt save the series, what hope did he have? And H2 is just unspeakable filth of a movie.

Id rather they just remade the TV series (without 'Richie' this time) that was way better.

I loved the first movie, endgame was nothing special to me IMO (not saying that it was bad).

Anywho, rumors indicate that a workprint of "The source" is already circulating the P2P networks. Most reviews of it are supposedly negative.

Considering that the new movies are based on the tv series and the main character is Duncan and not Conner (Richie is dead) you should be a happy camper.

Don't agree with you on Endgame, however, I actually found it just to opposite. However, I'm also looking at it as a continuation of the series and not the original movie (though elements are incorporated), I can view it from that perpective and be quite happy.

I'll agree that both versions of Highlander 2 were total and utter crap. There was absolutely no way to save that movie, and Highlander 3 was...ughhhh, plot holes galore, but came a long way to trying to repair what happened with the previous film.

Dudes what are you talking about? Highlander 2 was the best movie of all time. I wish I was from Geist. Wait a minute let me sit down, oh crap what did I just write? Seriously though Source has been in production for a looooong time, they're have been problems along the way with people being concerned that it was going to be another Highlander 2. I've heard that early drafts had an all young cast with no mention of the MacLouds and it was to be a new starting point. That got changed quickly when Adrian Paul and Christopher Lambert were brought on board.

I don't know. As a standalone, Highlander 2: The Renegade Version* works as a entertaining sci-fi film. I will admit that when combined with the other films, it does tend to make your brain bleed.

Highlander II: The Quickening...now that film...no hope, no hope at all. (minus five points to me for using a TF:TM ('86) reference.)

Let me ask you this, if they stuck you in a room and you had to watch Highlander II, but they gave you a choice between the three versions (The Quickening, The Renegade Version, Digitally Remastered Director's Cut*) which one would you choose?

*=(and about the new digitally remastered Director's Cut, it looks nothing short of fantastic. If nothing else, the visuals alone are insane.)

I know, this is one of those things you're never supposed to admit to in public but....

I actually liked Highlander 2: The Quickening. 'course, I was like 15 or 16 when it was released, so I blame the folly of youth for my mental imbalance there.

Now, The Renegade version is a different beast altogether. I don't mind saying I liked that flick. It's wonky when put in with the rest of the movies, but then each movie after the first totally seemed to try to reinvent the whole blasted backstory. Poor Connor. Guy's got the Prize and all that, yet for some reason there's always ANOTHER random, lost Immortal coming out of some damned cave somewhere and fudging with him. In retrospect, the Highlander series probably should never have seen a sequel, but so long as we've got 'em, I suppose we should make the best of 'em, eh?

Oh... and Masters of the Universe rocks. I don't care if it's nothing like the cartoon, it still rocks. Skeletor gets the prize for being perhaps the coolest licensed bad guy ever brought to the screen, simply because he was so much better than his cartoon counterpart. He's got some of the best lines ever.

"Tell me about the loneliness of good. Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?"
"I am not in a giving vein this day."

That whole sequence before the Eye of the Galaxy where he gives his big monologue is just plain awesome. Frank Langella is my hero.

Oh I'm more than willing to admit that I enjoy Highlander 2. I even bought the latest version of the Director's Cut on DVD. (I've got all of the Director's Cuts on DVD.)

It's really not that bad of a movie.

Oh and I love the MOTU movie. I have it on DVD as well. Cheesy as hell, and Tom Paris (before he was cool and running Voyager and all) is there, but hey...it's a classic of schlock!

I choose the fourth, hidden answer, Bob. Having my brain liquified and gouged out through my nostrils.

But seriously, there simply was no saving that movie. They tried, but they did not succeed. Whether they're from another planet, or time travelers. They were both really bad ideas.

There absolutely no one else who could have pulled off Skeletor so perfectly and not come off as uber cheese. He's the best part of that movie.

Ten points for getting that one. I didn't even realize that it was him until I picked up Masters on DVD a few years ago. I did remember Courtney Cox though, there another who had to pay their "dues" before.

I am banking on another highlander 2 fiasco. The thought the source is some alien thingie looking for a human to be it's key to unlock some stupid power on one specific immortal is just ******. And the bad guy.. ******, ******, ******. Imagine Jim Carrey with a stupid helmet, a sword, and moves like The Flash. Seriously. Supposedly there can't only be one highlander immortal, just there's only one who can make it to the source..or something, iunno.. I gave up. They released the movie in a couple other countries, but have done some editing to try and have it make more sense to an American crowd, so hopefully what I just said will have no bearing on it's final cut. But don't keep your hopes up! And don't worry, Adrian Paul forgot how to fight [not to mention he's like 48, roflmgdao. Okay, so he was 46 when the movie was shot, big whoop.] You will come to regard Highlander 2 as a fantastic piece of Cinema after watching this. I promise.

Well, that's that. Highlander: the Source is going directly to TV instead of the Box Office.

http://www.mania.com/55635.html

Highlander will appear on the Sci-Fi channel Sept 15. Kinda split on this, I would have liked to see it on the big screen, but I definately understand the reasons behind the move.

Well one can assume that at one point it will come to DVD in some extended form. Maybe with some nudity, always go for the nudity.
