    The key to whether or not an 80's film was a classic seems to depend largely on whether or not you actually saw it in the 80's.

    I enjoyed the TV series with Adrian Paul as Duncan Macleod (what are the chances that two cousins from the same highland clan become immortal!?)

    I'm sure it's aged horribly but it expanded on the original mythos quite well, and had a few interesting ideas (what happens if the Immortal becomes an immortal as a child? Groups of mortals who observe and watch the immortals or who hunt them, and so on. And No daft alien nonsense.

    Admittedly I would have been like 11 or 12 years old or so when it started, so I possibly wasn't the best critic, but I have fond memories.

    I remember going on holiday during the height of my wanking days and the Rhona Mitra edition of FHM was the only thing I had resembling porn. She really got me through those 2 weeks and will always have a special place in my heart.

    I have a very formative memory (mammary) of a front cover of FHM with Gail Porter on it from when I was a teenager. I saw her on telly the other day and almost cried. Aging is not kind to some people :(

    Didn't even know there was a Highlander cartoon. One to add to the list of "adult rated movies go Saturday Morning fun" next to Rambo, Robocop, Toxic Avenger, and Conan I suppose.

    Highlander: The Animated Series (1994)

    In the post-apocalyptic medieval 27th century, Ramirez mentors young Quentin MacLeod who must seek pacified Immortals, gain their knowledge through a non-lethal form of Quickening, and free the land from the evil Immortal overlord Kortan.

    Ageing is not kind to some people, but alopecia is a bastard to everyone unfortunate enough to have it. She's had a really rough time of it.

    It's not even that though, everyone's aware of that. It was all the wrinkles that shocked me. And the startling reminder that I'm much older now too.

    Basically, in the 1990s everyone got their own cartoon. MC Hammer, Kid n' Play, Bill & Ted, Ace Ventura, Back to the Future... even shit films like Free Willy and The Mummy.

    I'll give it a rack.

    I see that weird Rutger Hauer flick is on Amazon as well. The one where it rains a lot and he fights a sewer monster.

    @robthehermit It is, but if I were to take that back can we both agree that The Mummy Returns is a fucking abomination.

    Weirdly, that doesn't help narrow down the list of Rutger Hauer movies.

    That was Gail Porter, I think. From the scandal cover of Maxim or something with her bum out.

    All this talk of The Mummy films and 90s bints reminded me Donna Air actually had a small role in The Mummy Returns. Remember her? Fit, but fucking useless.

    Also loads of 80s classic films still hold up these days. Blade Runner, The Thing, Predator, Terminator, Aliens etc. Genuinely great films even if you didn't see them at the time.

    They also convert the mysterious immortals into just aliens. Albeit, particularly twattish aliens.
    This is in the theatrical cut, DVDs use the renegade version, where all mentions of them being aliens are removed, instead they are from the vary distant past and send people into the future to...

    Actually it doesn't matter it's still terrible.

    Don't expect me to read the thread properly when it's going at this breakneck pace.

    A Quiet Place - Part 2 - 8/10

    A tense and suspenseful film just like the original. Cillian Murphy can't quite replace John Krasinski's broad appeal but his character is a believable portrayal of a man losing the fight against hopelessness and he's a better actor than Krasinski. Emily Blunt is excellent but doesn't really have all that much to do for most of the running time.

    It's fairly predictable in places especially the final sequence. The sound design is very immersive and the creatures are as chilling as before. I do think they could have done more to show the transition from functioning society to post-apocalyptic wasteland but I say that about every post-apocalyptic TV show or movie.

    Split Second.

    Nick made me aware of its existence. Big in the UK but didn't make it to the cinemas of NZ.
