A bat shit crazy premise, a fantastic soundtrack, Sean Connery as a mentor character, ground-breaking camera and editing work that still oozes 1980s in every second: this is a guilty pleasure feast and still one of the greatest action fantasy films of all time. While the unprepar...

Highlander is almost awesome in it's badness. From visible equipment, mismatched audio/visual, incredibly bad acting, cheesy and cringe-worthy dialogue, bad music, and some pretty awful special effects, Highlander had me torn: It has a really interesting and original concept th...

I think I was the only kid at school in 1986 who had not seen Highlander and I always felt I was missing out on something. It only took 25 years to catch up with it but I can't help but think that I probably would have enjoyed it more had I have watched it back then but I suppose...
