  6. Speaking of movies, I still don't understand why sin city isn't considered the most epic movie of the naughties.

  7. Loved that movie. Shame the TV series was so bad. I guess they used up all the good ideas in the movie.

  8. It's as if they didn't grasp the fact that "there can be only one!" ;)

  9. Highlander is a great film, and as you said the soundtrack is awesome too. Its a shame it was followed up by one of the worst sequels in history. Highlander 2 was a crime against humanity.

  12. Pity Jessica Alba's character in Sin City went to that special Hollywood school of strippers who *don't take anything off*... Must watch it again some time, anyway.

    Highlander is a long-time fave, as is Ladyhawke.

  17. Cracker of a film for it's time. Hollywood are bound to do a remake sometime, then Highlander 1, 2 and 3 will be in the bin together.

    It's better to burn out than to fade away, there can be only one.

  18. I was 14 the first and only time I watched bladerunner. Maybe I should give it another chance. Lucky year 12 didn't ruin it for me.

  19. Highlander was a great movie. The other 3 - yes 3 - were complete rubbish.
