How far did Snake Plissken travel in Escape From L.A.? Where did all the Quiznos in Las Vegas go? These questions are answered as well as what our next movie will be in our trilogy of bad sequels. Paul also goes through Corrections and Omissions for Escape From L.A., Blake J. Harris interviews Escape From L.A. original screenwriter Coleman Luck (go to www.slashfilm.com to read the whole thing), and the Movie Bitches review Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Plus, Paul, June, and Jason go through the mail bag!

i watched the original many times when i was younger. i still say "there can be only one" when the opportunity arises but i've never seen the quickening ... but i did watch a later sequel. it was more of a tv show tie in. it had christopher lambert, adrian paul and lisa barbusica .. it was called highlander: endgame. it was not good. i hope this is more watchable.

Heads up that on Twitter a while back Paul said watch the Renegade Version of Highlander 2.

I am half hoping that for the show half the panel watched the theatrical and half watched renegade version because I think they are pretty different.

I have a student at the moment doing a final thesis project, half between my department and half with the Environmental Studies programme. She's writing a play exploring society's treatment of environmental issues, specifically the idea of merging the Greek figure of Cassandra (true prophecies no one listens to) and Climate Change deniers. In advising her yesterday, I reached way back into my repertoire by referencing 'Highlander 2: The Quickening' by talking about how Connor MacLeod fixes the ozone layer to much fanfare, without recognition of the side-effects of such a move. I then quickly advised the student to NOT watch the movie.

When Paul said that June hated this movie I got excited for next week. I hope she makes him not play clips. That is one of my favorite random June-isms.

I saw the original Highlander on TV for the first time around the late '90 early 2000s and LOVED IT (100% from Coast to Coast ) but then I saw it recently for the 30th Aniversary BluRay and it did not age well for me and what I remembered in my head...

It's not a bad movie but some moments turned out to be hilarious for me when I saw it at the end of last year ( Connor fighting with policemen outside of the Madison Square Garden parking garage and the following interrogation scene... YOU CAN'T DO ANY THAT WITHOUT BEING PUT IN JAIL!!! He just walks out the police station. The *Only One* (winkwink) near the scene of the crime!!!)

I have yet to see Highlander II... Wish me luck

Yeah, Endgame was their lame attempt to tie the film and tv show story lines together, but it mostly focused on Duncan MacLeod, who is about as interesting as a sack of oatmeal.

Just listened to the mini while grocery shopping (I associate so many episodes of HDTGM with the produce section at the No Frills at Gerrard and Carlaw) and wanted to chime in to say bravo again to Cam Bert for the no-prize, richly deserved. Amazing post!

Although, it might be time for you to post in Ask Paul to clarify the pronunciation of your name! (although, I do love the many ways he always goes at it: there must be four or five versions by now) I was going to say you could clarify your gender too (since today he wondered if you were a woman), but that's up to you.

I can't tell. On Amazon it seems like they only have Highlander 2 Renegade Version branding. I don't see any that say Highlander 2 Director's Cut.

Here is a way too detailed page breaking down the different versions of the film. Without having actually read it I think it is safe to warn there are spoilers here.

Apparently, hitting "quote" on mobile erases everything you've already typed out, so half of my previous post is missing....

Soooo anyway, I'm moving next week, and I literally packed up my movies last night, even though I knew next week was going to be Highlander 2. Conundrum: do I dig through the boxes I packed yesterday? or do I just take this as an opportunity to buy it on Blu-Ray and retire the DVD?

Life gives you hard choices sometimes, man.

Edit: my DVD is the American theatrical cut, so maybe this is an opportunity to buy the Renegade version.

Totally just answered your own question.

Sad to say I skip through them. I'm sure they're funny on the YouTube channel, but it hurts my head when it's beamed right into my brain through my headphones. Add to that that they only ever tear movies down and I quite liked 'Fantastic Beasts,' I thought it best to skip (as usual). I did wonder what you'd have to say about them crapping on it though...

I haven't seen it yet, so I stopped the episode there (Did anything interesting happen in the episode after that?). I think I've gotten more and more like June in that I want to know as little about something as possible so I can make my own judgement. And if all someone is going to do is shit on something, I'd rather not listen to it.

Also, Taylor Anne, you play the ukulele, right? Any tips on making a C-chord not sound like total garbage? Do you play with just your finger on the third fret on the A-String or do you play it like a B-Chord just moved up a fret? It's really starting to piss me off...

Actually, yes - Paul's pick was pretty funny. A stand-up bit I quite enjoyed.

I agree with CakeBug - Paul's pick was really delightful!

For a hot second I completely forgot that I had mentioned I played ukulele and was starting to get worried about your level of stalking lol. I literally just play the A-String on the third fret. Anything to make the chords as easy as possible lol. If it really sounds like garbage there is a chance it's not properly tuned (not to make assumptions that you can't tune it but I always know when it sounds right and if it's off then that means I need to do a hella tuning).

What was the pick?

Oh, and I'm, like, a very accomplished stalker :)/>

I'm pretty sure the tuning is okay...I'm used to hearing a C on either a guitar, piano, or a mandolin and for some reason it doesn't sound right to me on the uke...Everything else sounds fine. It doesn't feel like it's in the correct octave or something...it sounds better when played like a B, but as you said, that's a kind of annoying transition when going to a G.

Thanks anyway!
