*H*I*G*H*L*A*N*D*E*R*P*A*L*O*O*Z*A* The slippery slope starts now- Highlander 2: The Quickening


This time out, there’s more of us involved and we’re taking on the sequel to the original hugely entertaining Highlander with Highlander 2: The Quickening.

The time is coming up for 8pm, hopefully everyone has enough beer to make it through, and everyone has the film cued and ready to go.

Personally, I think that this sequel is shit on a stick and can’t believe I’m watching it again.

Anyway, not to prejudge, but from memory I’m giving this one chang. If events unfold and it needs upgrading, then I’ll come back and change this, but I seem to remember this being dire.

Ready, let the carnage commence…

Workshy cynic, given to posting reams of nonsense on the internet and watching films that have inexplicably got a piss poor reputation.

  1. DocPazuzu says :

    Tough call. H2 is enraging and awful beyond words, yet the entertainment value of its heinousness is undeniable.

  2. Droid says :

    I think this is so undeniably horrible, yet daftly entertaining that it requires something different.

    What that is, I don’t know.

    How about this?

    The Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez of Doom!!!


  3. D.Vader says :

    Holy shit, Doc Paz is here now too? Awesome!

  4. DocPazuzu says :

    Hey Vader, sorry to hear about your trouble at GingerTown. That place is really the pits now.

  5. D.Vader says :

    Hey Doc,

    Yeah I still check in every now and then. I’m really sort of amazed how dead the place feels. Only talkbacks about Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, or Trek/Aliens seems to generate hits above 200 posts. Lots of people got banned for stupid reasons, and lots of others seem to have left. Its kind of depressing.

    How’d you find your way here? I don’t stop by nearly as much as I should.

    • Franklin T Marmoset says :

      Good to hear from you, Vader.

      I think I speak for everyone here when I say you’re welcome anytime.

      • D.Vader says :

        Thank you Frank! Clearly, I don’t post at AICN anymore, so I’d like to drop by here more often! Though I’m kinda spreading myself between different AICN refugee sites nowadays it seems!

  6. DocPazuzu says :

    It’s where most of the intelligentsia of TB fled to, so I wandered in. More of an occasional visitor rather than a regular (not enough time with two small kids).

  7. kloipy says :

    wish I had time to join you guys on this patwoza

  8. ThereWolf says :

    I just wanted to say ‘good luck’, we’re all counting on you…

    • Franklin T Marmoset says :

      And don’t call me Shirley!

      • Franklin T Marmoset says :

        Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinking.

        Shit, man, these Expendables are going to blow up the entire planet if they don’t don’t stop exploding stuff.

        Also, I need to go to bed. Tomorrow morning is going to be rough.

        And then we can do it all again tomorrow night when HIGHLANDERPALOOZA RETURNS!

      • Spud McSpud says :

        Ah, Terry Crews and that AA-12 shotgun. Fucking awesome stuff. LOVED that movie!

      • Franklin T Marmoset says :

        Yep, me too.

        It’s got its flaws, but The Expendables is huge fun for old school action fans. I enjoyed it just as much second time around.

        They definitely need more Crews in part two, though.

      • Spud McSpud says :

        It’s been a rum old year for action. I thought THE LOSERS was a sure thing for an awesome movie, but the plot was nonsensical, it was far too obvious who the traitor would be, and they criminally missed the opportunity for Javier Bardem’s twin bro to go up to Jason Patric at the end and say “And you must be Max”. Fucking amateurs.

        Then THE A-TEAM… I like the tank thing in the trailer, but was otherwise dead against this movie. Guess what? Fucking LOVED it. Silly as hell and played to perfection. Yes, even Bradley Cooper, who made a great Face Man.

        And then THE EXPENDABLES, which I thought looked like a movie with no plot, no purpose and too many stars… Turned out to be my favourite of the three. Some incredible action, awesome fights, insane weaponry – and bigger practical explosions than I’ve ever fucking seen! Best action movie of the DECADE, arguably.

        More Crews for EXPENDABLES 2. And give the man a free-hanging .50 cal…

      • koutchboom says :

        YES! Someone agrees with me. Spud I’m with you I loved the Expendables as well.

    • D.Vader says :

      But they have no instruments!

    • ThereWolf says :

      It’s a big building with patients.

  9. ThereWolf says :

    And Highlander 2 is fucking incomprehensible.

  10. LB says :

    “See dat little star der next to da moon. He He . That’s Where I’m going”

  11. Spud McSpud says :

    Fucking missed it. I fucking HATE real-life, with all its bullshit obligations…

    I can’t make any other Highlanderpaloozas this week, working every evening. FUCKING FUCK!! Would’ve LOVED to have been here for this!!

    Highlights for me:



    And, of course, DocPazuzu actually causing HIGHLANDER 2 to suck EVEN MORE for all of us – an impressive achievement, even by WOTM’s esteemed standards. As Jarv said: “That. Is. Fucking. Unspeakable.”

    I’m with you all in spirit. Til tomorrow, then…

    • D.Vader says :

      Spud’s here too? Fuckin’ A!

      • Spud McSpud says :

        Yeah, I fuckin’ missed it. Had to go run some bullshit errands.

        Dear God, HIGHLANDER 2 was shite. And I saw that shit at the cinema, aged an impressionable 18 years old. I physically wanted to assault the screen after watching that abomination. Horrifying, soul-scarring psychic torture…

  12. Spud McSpud says :

    Good to see you, BTW, Vader. you seen the support you’ve been getting on AICN? It’s a shabby fucking excuse for a site these days, none of the decorum or genuine pitch-black wit you’d see in the hallowed times of the Baleback etc, AND they’ve hired that fucking witless hack Devin Faraci (ay least CHUD can’t get any worse) – but there’s enough people on there who still give the mods shit for Banhammering you. Fuck those losers. AICN is on the downslide, and it’s beginning to show.

    WOTM, on the other hand, is a veritable haven for those of us who need our daily dose of schlock and the unique nihilistic reality check that is Jarv. Droid gives this place the heart, koutch gives it the gift of the gab, and Xi, ThereWolf, Mavra, kloipy, Frank the Mad Bastard Marmoset… The gang’s all here. Don’t be a stranger, Vader!!

  13. ThereWolf says :




  14. ThereWolf says :

    I haven’t seen any Highlanders beyond HIGHLANDER 2: THE CACKENING.

    Wouldn’t mind joining in for 3. But my computer-me-bob won’t stream shit.

    But still, when I was researching the family name (I’ve told this story before – to the point of tedium) I discovered that it contained Scottish ancestry and was linked to…


    Absolutely true.

    • Spud McSpud says :

      So – there should have been only one, but there was at least two – you and Connor. And of course, all your ancestors.

      So it’s fair to assume – Zeist is entirely populated by ThereWolves!!

    • Franklin T Marmoset says :

      His name is ThereWolf of the clan McLeod. He is an alien from the planet Zeist and he cannot die!

      Shit, I’m definitely collapsing into bed now.

      Night, all. See you all for more Highlander shenanigans tomorrow.


  15. ThereWolf says :

    Also, great to see the AICN Irregulars drifting in to take part…

    “The power of Highlander compels you!”

  16. Tom_Bando says :

    The power of the Lambert compels you! You WANT the Lambert! You NEED the Lambert! You ARE the Lambert!!

    Boys THAT conjures up some scary images, not a one of them I nec. wanna see.

    PaZooz it’s cool to see you and Noted_Sage D.Vader here. Did Harold enjoy his Award that Jarv gave him and I presented??
