QUEEN !!! !!! !!!

… …

I Figured Before I Totally Stopped Talking About…

HIGHLANDER

…I’d Make Mention Of My Favorite Song From The Flick.

A KIND OF MAGIC

…by…

QUEEN

…Is Said Favorite Song.

In Fact…

A KIND OF MAGIC

…Might Honestly Be The British Rockers BEST Song.

Now…

…You Know Me.

You Know I Know The Difference Between…

My Favorite

…And…

The Best

…And I Generally Make Mention As To Which Of Those Two Something Is.

In This Case…

BOTH Are TRUE.

.Period.

Now…

…Perhaps…

…With This Bloggin’ing Complete…

…I’ll Actually Be Able To Get This Song Out Of My Mind For At Least A Minute.

It’s Been On Almost Constant Replay Since Friday Night.

And It Hasn’t Helped Matters That I’ve Got It On My MP3Player…

…Which Is Never Far From Me As Some Of You Are Already Aware.

I Do Love Me Some…

QUEEN

…And I Do Love Me Some…

A KIND OF MAGIC

…And I ESPECIALLY Do Love Me Some…

HIGHLANDER

.Period.

Give It A Look AND A Listen, My Peeps.

You’ll (likely) Be Glad You Did.

Fo Sho, FO SHO!!!

πŸ˜€

So… How Did I Spend MY Cinco De Mayo???

Well…

…I Watched The St. Louis Cardinals Get Their Rows Hoed By The Houston Astros…

😦

…So I Needed A Quickie-Quick Pick-Me-Upper.

What Does That Mean???

I Broke-Out The Ole…

HIGHLANDER: THE IMMORTAL EDITION

…That’s What!!!

πŸ˜€

Since I Was Forced To Give-Up The Drinking A Couple Years Back Because Of My Fragile Stomach…

…MY Cinco De Mayo’s Had Become Quite The Bore.

So…

…This Year…

…I Sincerely Wanted To Try Pepping-It-Up A Bit.

I Figured A Decent Day Of Baseball…

…Quietly Enjoyed In The Comforts Of My Own Home…

…With Some Hot Coffee In The Evening…

…Would Be A Nice…

…Simple…

…Pleasant Way To Spend The Day.

But THEN…

…The Cardinals TOTALLY TANKED HARD.

😦

It Quickly Became Apparent That My Evening Was Still Pleasant…

…But It Was Starting To Take A Turn For The Worse.

That’s When I Said…

“I Need Something Cool To Watch And Enjoy Before I Get Cranky Over This Pathetic-Ass Ballgame. Period.”

That’s When I Broke-Out…

HIGHLANDER: THE IMMORTAL EDITION

…On The DVD.

Then…

…I Proceeded To Get Myself Lost Lost LostΒ Within The Awesome Realm That Is…

HIGHLANDER

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

Suddenly…

…The World Was A Much Happier Place.

I’ve Been On A…

HIGHLANDER

…Kick SINCE!!!

It Just Made Me Think About How Utterly POWERFUL Movies Can Be.

They Can Turn An Off-Evening Into A GRAND GRAND GRAND Evening By The Simple Motion Of Pushing The PLAY Button!

πŸ™‚

Now THAT Is POWER!!!

πŸ˜€

And I Sincerely Did FEEL Said POWER.

When Certain Scenes Would Occur In The Flick…

…Yeah…

…I’d Get Goosebumps!!!

I Just LOVE IT When That Happens, My Peeps, Fo SHO!!!

Great Movies ALWAYS Do That To Me.

Some People Have Religion, etc etc.

Some People Have Booze, etc etc.

I Have…

CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT

…And…

VINCENT PRICE

…And…

BURT REYNOLDS

…And…

PETER SELLERS

…And…

PETER CUSHING

etc etc etc

I Won’t Say Mine Is Better…

…But I Will Say Mine Is MUCH More Fun!!!

πŸ˜‰

ALSO…

…As An Added Little Bonus…

…I’ve Been On A…

QUEEN

…Kick!!!

The Very Popular British Rockers Did-Up The SOUNDTRACK To The First…

HIGHLANDER

…Flick!!!

Talk About A Total ONE-TWO-PUNCH Of PURE-PURE-PLEASURE!!!

I Get A Flick I Love Love LOVE And GREATLY ENJOY…

…And I Get Some Great Great GREAT TUNAGE To Boot!!!

Would I Be Able To Call That WINNING?!?

I Think So, My Peeps.

I Think So, INDEED!!!

πŸ˜€

Please Enjoy Your Day, My Peeps.

I Know You’ll All Be Trying To Do So…

…And I’ll Be Doing The Very Same.

Catch’Ya’L8r!!!

πŸ™‚

Could I Tempt You With A Double-Shot? How ’bout A CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT Double-Shot??? GREAT! I KNEW YOU WERE GAME!!!

Today, My Peeps…

…We’re Talkin’ SEQUELS!

First…

…We’ll Make Mention…

…Of…

…MY FAVORITE SEQUEL…

…Of…

…THE “HIGHLANDER” SERIES!!!

HIGHLANDER: THE FINAL DIMENSION

(1994)

Sooo…

…Why Is THIS Entry MY Favorite Sequel?

Hmm…

…Well…

…Have You Ever Watched All The “HIGHLANDER” Flicks?

Yeah.

My Point Exactly.

HIGHLANDER: THE FINAL DIMENSION

…Is EASILY The Better Sequel…

…Er…

…Prequel…

…Er…

…Hmm…

…Whatever.

However…

…It DOES Kinda Screw-Up The Story-Line Established In…

HIGHLANDER 2: THE QUICKENING

…But I’m Tryin’ Not To Pay Attention To That Glaring Issue.

I Try To Take Each AND Every Flick I Watch As An Individual Flick.

In That Mindset…

…THIS FLICK AIN’T SO BAD!!!

Just Don’t Expect A Whole Lot From This One.

Well…

…Other Than The Re-Teaming Of…

CHRISTOPHER LAMBER

&

MARIO VAN PEEBLES

!!!

I Know, Right!!!

HOW CAN YOU GO WRONG THERE!?!?!

EXACTLY, My Peeps…

…YOU CAN’T!!!

(SIDE NOTE: Well... You CAN, But NOT When I'M In Charge Of The Bloggin'ing. Beyotches!)

THE “HIGHLANDER” SERIES…

…Is NOT The Best Film Series On Earth.

Of That, I’m Quite Sure.

HOWEVER…

…I’m ALSO Quite Sure They’re A HELLUVA PANTLOAD Of FUN…

…And They DO Deserve Some Sweet-Sweet-LOVIN’ From Y’all!

Fo SHO Fo SHO, My Peeps!!!

… … … …

… …

Now…

…Let’s Give A Quickie Shout-Out…

…To…

FORTRESS 2: RE-ENTRY

(2000)

Now THIS Flick…

…Is A TRUE-BLUE-SEQUEL.

It’s Biggest Issue, However, Is It’s A Really BAD Flick.

(Side Note: hahaha No Foolies, My Peeps. "FORTRESS 2: RE-ENTRY" Is A "B-MOVIE" From "B-MOVIE-HELL" Which Is One Reason I So SO LOVE IT!)

The First Film…

FORTRESS

…Was SUPER-DUPER-WONDERFULLY-WONDERFUL!!!

The Sequel…

FORTRESS 2: RE-ENTRY

…May Be One Of THE WORST FILMS You’re Likely To EVER SEE…

…Making It All SO MUCH THE BETTER!!!

I Mean, COME ON, My Peeps!!!

CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT

…In Prison…

…IN OUTER-SPACE!!!

That Little Chunk Of Facts Right There Are All One TRULY NEEDS, Ya Know?!?!

CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT

+

CAMPY “B-MOVIE”

+

A PRISON IN OUTER-SPACE

=

AMAZING MOVIE MAGIC!!!

Sooo…

…If You’re A Lover Of Terrible Flicks…

FORTRESS 2: RE-ENTRY

…May Be THE FLICK For YOU!!!

… … … …

… …

You Really Should Check’em BOTH Out, My Peeps.

In Fact…

…I Think I’m Smellin’ A…

CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT

…Movie MARATHON!!!

Can YOU Smell It?

Kinda Cabbage’ish, Ain’t It.

Yep.

I So SO AGREE, Kiddies!!!

Thankfully…

…I LOVE ME SOME CABBAGE!!!

πŸ˜‰

πŸ˜€

“THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!” …Unless It’s A CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT Double Shot! “SUBWAY” (1985) and “HIGHLANDER” (1986)

I’ve Paired These Two Flicks Together For One Reason…

…And One Reason Only.

They Are…

…In My Opinion…

…The Two Flicks MOST RESPONSIBLE…

…For Putting…

CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT

…”On-The-Map” As They Say.

=== === === ===

SUBWAY

(1985)

"SUBWAY" Was Written AND Directed By LUC BESSON. It Stars CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT, ISABELLE ADJANI, RICHARD BOHRINGER, and JEAN RENO!

=== === === ===

…And…

=== === === ===

HIGHLANDER

(1986)

"HIGHLANDER" Was Directed By RUSSELL MULCAHY, And Stars CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT, CLANCY BROWN, ROXANNE HART, and SEAN CONNERY!

=== === === ===

M’Kay…

…Now I Already Know What You’re Gonna Say.

“Hey Dude, “GREYSTOKE: THE LEGEND OF TARZAN, LORD OF THE APES” Came-Out In 1984!”

And YES…

…You Would Be Correct On That.

HOWEVER…

…That Film, To Me, Was More-So The Ole “Foot-In-The-Door” For…

CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT

.Period.

In 1984, However…

…Most Folks The World Over Still Had NO CLUE Who He Was.

Then Came…

SUBWAY

…In 1985.

SUBWAY

…Was A True “UNDERGROUND-SUCCESS”, So To Speak.

(Pun TOTALLY Intended, btw)

And I’m Going To Say This Because I Feel It’s Something Y’all MUST UNDERSTAND…

…But I Sincerely…

…Honestly…

…TRULY…

…Hate Hate HATED…

SUBWAY

…The First Time I’d Seen It.

I Love Love LOVED The Opening Of The Flick…

…But Was Very Much-So…

…CONFUSED…

…And…

…BORED…

…With Most Of The Rest Of It.

More Than Once…

…I Was Forced To Say To Myself…

…”WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?”…

…”WHAT AM I WATCHING?”…

…”WHO THOUGHT UP THIS SHIT?”…

…”IS THERE REALLY A COMMUNITY LIVING IN THE SUBWAY?”…

…And So-On…

…And So-Forth…

…And So-Forth Again.

And YES, My Peeps…

…I Can Almost Guarantee All Of You…

…You’re VERY LIKELY To Say Those EXACT SAME THINGS…

…When You Watch…

SUBWAY

…For The First…

…And Second…

…And Third…

…And Perhaps Even The Fourth Time.

It. Is. WEIRD.

.PERIOD.

Eventually…

…I Started Noticing Some Things I Hadn’t Before.

I Started To Understand It A Bit Better.

I Mean…

…It IS A FRENCH Flick.

It’s SUBTITLED.

It Is NOT An Easy Watch.

Once It All Begins To Fall Into Place…

…However…

…It Becomes A Bit Fun…

…In Its Own…

…Odd…

…Quirky…

…Weird Way.

If You Are A Person Who’s BLESSED With A Little Something Called PATIENCE…

…Then YES, I CAN Recommend This Flick To You.

If You’re One Who’s LACKING In The PATIENCE-DEPARTMENT…

…You May Wanna Hold-Off On…

SUBWAY

…For Now.

You Should Really Just Trust Me On This One.

πŸ˜‰

Now…

…When I Talk About…

HIGHLANDER

…I’m Talkin’ About A Flick MOST “Movie-Lovin’-Folks” Have At Least HEARD OF.

And I’m Quite Sure MOST Of Those “Movie-Lovin’-Folks” Would Agree With Me When I Say…

HIGHLANDER

…Is…

CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT‘s

…MOST MOST MOST…

…Well-Known/Popular…

…Piece Of Work.

.PERIOD.

It Is THE Quintessential…

CHRISTOPHER LAMBER

…Flick…

…At Least To MOST Peeps.

Do I LOVE IT?

YES.

Is It HIS BEST?

No.

Is It MY FAVORITE?

No.

Is It Generally The First Flick Of His People Remember and/or Mention?

YES.

Yes It Is.

Is That Alright With Me?

SURE THING!

Why?

Because I’m Just Happy People Remember and/or Mention Him AT ALL!

PLUS…

…It Gives Me An IN.

Mention…

HIGHLANDER

…And People Say…

“Oh Yeah, Dude! I SO KNOW THAT ONE!”

To Which My Reply Is…

“That’s GREAT! Figured You’d Know THAT ONE! I So SO LOVE IT! By The Way, Have You Ever Seen “RESURRECTION“? Same Actor. Same Director. BETTER FLICK!”

Of Course, My Peeps…

…This Is All Simply MY Opinion.

Though…

…I Will Say…

…More And More Of You Appear To Be Agreeing With Me More And More!!!

That’s GREAT!!!

And…

…There Also Appears To Be More And More Of You Willing To Call-Me-Out On A Few Of My Opinions.

That’s ALSO GREAT!!!

I So SO HATE IT When Everything Is All One-Sided, Ya Know?

One-Sided = UNBALANCED

I Require BOTH Barrels, My Peeps.

I Love Knowing There Are Folks Out There Who Think I’m RIGHT-ON And Those Who Think I’m WAY-OFF.

I Sincerely Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way.

AND THAT IS FO SHO!!!
