There can be only one!
On today’s episode the returning Nick and Michael sit down to tackle a big shame list entry… yes, they’re watching HIGHLANDER.
Connor MacLeod is an immortal that’s been wandering the globe since 1536. He’s been everywhere from Scotland to New York City defending himself in sword fights against other immortals. MacLeod’s existence has been a secret this whole time, but after beheading one of his immortal challengers, his situation gets far more hectic when a beautiful forensics officer starts investigating these beheadings and the ancient weapons found at the scene of the crimes. MacLeod reflects on his life, his former love and his mentor all the while being hunted by the NYC Police and a ruthless immortal known as The Kurgan who aims to claim his prize for being the final immortal.
Directed by Russel Mulcahy in 1986 from a script by Gregory Widen, Peter Bellwood and Larry Ferguson based on a script Gregory Widen wrote in college. The film has a relatively successful release with some solid reviews, but took a whole new life on Home Video and has now reached cult status. HIGHLANDER has spawned 5 sequels, two different live-action TV shows, novels, animated series, comics and more. Let’s also not forget about the amazing grouping of songs that Queen produced for the film. I dare you to put on “Princes of the Universe” and not crank it to 11. HIGHLANDER stars Christopher Lambert, Clancy Brown, Roxanne Hart, Beatie Edney and Sean Connery as MacLeod’s mentor Juan Sanches Villa-Lobos Ramirez.
