Once upon a time, there was a movie. It didn't do very well, but people remembered it fondly, so they made a sequel. It was pretty bad. So they made another sequel, and it was also pretty bad. People looked upon the faces of the sequels and realized that the original movie was actually really pretty damned good - at least in comparison - and so a cult movie was born.
This week, the Movieing On team sits down to watch Highlander, the 1986 original starring Christopher Lambert with a not very convincing Scottish accent starring opposite Sean Connery with a not very convincing Spanish accent in a not very convincing movie about people who cannot die. ... It's better than I make it sound, actually.
