  1. I haven't finished the episode yet (about 5-10 minutes left) so maybe this gets answered at the end, but what was up with that girls second opinions song?

    Does she really think Paul's name is John? Or was it a genuine mistake? (Seems unlikely as she repeated it several times).

    Compared to this, the movie makes complete sense.

    I came to the forum for answers but it's barely been mentioned. What is happening? 


  2. I think we need to force Paul to take this test.

     

    Actually I think we should all take it. It got me down exactly as North Texas. Fuckin' test.

     

    I took it, I'm apparently a New Yorker.

     

    I had my doubts that it would be able to place me due to the fact I'm the son of two Canadians (I'm still one by birth) and having moved around so much as a kid, but it nailed me pretty well in the South to Central Florida area. I don't live there anymore, but it is the place I spent the most time growing up. I will say though, if you take all the other questions out, I'm pretty sure they could peg someone pretty easily with the "mountain lion, cougar, puma" question.

    Yeah, I got Fort Worth, Irving, and Arlington for the three most similar cities.

     

     

    I know this is an old thread, but I was reading through, saw the link and decided that I had to take this test.

     

    I'm an Aussie, so I thought it would be funny to see where it would place me, apparently I'm somewhere between Yonkers, Jersey City and New York City.

     

    Although to be honest, I had to answer "I don't have a word for this" or "I don't know what this is" for a lot of things. Some of the answers for "what do you call it when it's raining and the sun is shining" really had me scratching my head! We call it a sunshower down here.

  3. Hey Paul, June and Jason!

     

    Boy, oh boy what an unholy mess you all walked into with Highlander 2! I’m actually one of three hosts of a weekly Highlander Podcast called Highlander Rewatched. Yes…there is that much to talk about with Highlander that it deserves it’s own podcast….5 movies (most are awful), a pretty great TV show, and an absolutely atrocious animated series in which the highlander rides a dinosaur and has a “Snarf” like sidekick. Anyway, just wanted to share a few notable facts and observations about Highlander 2 with you!

     

    First, off, let’s start with Christopher Lambert’s insane old man voice. In the original movie, which takes place in 1985, he is supposed to be the age of an18 year old. The movie starts in 1999 when he creates the shield, making him 32 years old. Then we jump ahead to the year 2024 - making him only 57! FIFTY SEVEN?!?! He sounds like he is 105 years old! His voice makes no sense at all!

     

    When Connor and Ramirez approach the Super Max prison in their car there is a sign at the front entrance that says “No unauthorized (spelled UNAUTHORISED) persons to proceed beyond this point” There is a HUGE typo on the screen! They couldn't even spell unauthorized correctly. Could anything more have gone wrong on this film? Of course! As you mentioned Christopher Lambert got injured a number of times during this shoot. During the final battle you can actually see he is still wearing his hospital bracelet! Guess he couldn't be bothered to take it off.

     

    Finally, just a little tidbit. If your turn up the volume, in the “Special edition” of this movie (there are about 4 versions of this movie!) you can hear Sean Connery whisper in the woman sitting next to him on the plane’s ear “I hear dark haired women like to SIT ON MEN’S FACES” Holy shit! But what is the best part of all of this? In the original theatrical version of this movie they edited that last part of his line to you never really know what Sean Connery says. The Producers, and Director of this movie decided when making the special edition DVD which came out years later - ”Hey you know that really crude line that we took out of the movie? Yeah, let’s put that back in!” GROSS!

     

    We also included a little supercut we made of Christopher Lambert's awful old man voice! Enjoy!

     

    Thanks again, you are the best and we always look forward to your show every single week!

     

    Best,

    Keith and the Highlander Rewatched Crew

     

     

    I may be wrong (and I'm sure someone who actually paid attention in English class can correct me) but I believe that unauthoriSed is the British spelling of the word and unauthoriZed is the US spelling.

     

    So I'm guessing they filmed this either somewhere in the UK or somewhere that had a British influence in the past. Or maybe the guy who made the sign for the film was British?


  4. Someone may have already mentioned this (I had a quick look through and couldn't see anything) but one of the audience members says that there are no Irish actors in this move.

     

    That is incorrect. Although he may not sound it, Pierce Brosnan is actually Irish. He was born in Drogheda and lived in Ireland until he was 11, when he moved to England.

     

    Just a small correction, but one that I wanted to bring to light.


  5. Paul, can you please do an episode where you just tell stories about your days working at Blockbuster?

     

    As a former video store employee myself (VideoEzy here in Australia) I would love to hear more of your stories.

     

    Maybe a minisode dedicated to it?

     

    Thanks
