Highlander Returns To The Big Screen In A New 4K Restoration!

8 June 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

When it comes to Highlander films there should have been only one but, man, what a one. Russell Mulcahy's original Highlander is a true cult classic, the tale of immortal swordsmen battling it out through time not just withstanding the onslaught of far inferior sequels and spinoffs that followed but actually seeming to improve by contrast as subsequent efforts tried and failed to get the formula right. But like many 80s classics Highlander is a film made for the big screen that the vast majority of its fans - myself included - have never been able to see there. Until now. With the film's 30th anniversary just around the corner Highlander has been fully restored in 4K and while that new restoration will certainly be...

See a New Trailer for the 4K Restoration of Action Classic 'Highlander'

8 June 2016 6:53 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There can be only one!" He's back! Studiocanal UK is planning freshly restored, high def 4K re-release of the action classic Highlander, to celebrate its 30th anniversary since it was originally released in 1986. Christopher Lambert stars as Connor MacLeod, an immortal Scottish swordsman who must confront the last of his immortal opponents to claim the "Prize". This is an action classic that many regard as one of their favorite action films, and it was already re-released as a Director's Cut a few years ago. But there's nothing like seeing your favorite film from the 80's restored and looking better than ever. It's also good to take your mind off the reboot/remake/sequels and just enjoy the original again. Plus - Sean Connery. Enough said. Here's the new 4K restoration trailer for Russell Mulcahy's Highlander, from Studiocanal UK's YouTube: 1985 New York City - the Battle to end all battles. »

Badass New Look at Highlander 4K Restoration! [Trailer]

7 June 2016 11:37 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Last month, the programmers at the Edinburgh International Film Festival announced that on June 18, they would be premiering a brand new 4K restoration of Russell Mulcahy's 1986 fantasy/adventure drama Highlander.

There have been a lot of great restorations announced over the last few years but none have made me as happy as this one.

As a long-time Highlander fan who was too young to experience the original theatrical release, the thought of seeing a pristine version of Highlander on the big screen is really exciting and that dream is now a little closer to reality.

Though I won't be at the now sold-out Eiff screening, there is a new trailer for the restoration which leads me to t [Continued ...] »

Teen Wolf season 5 episode 20 review: Apotheosis

Teen Wolf season 5 may have been scattered all over, but its finale ends with an image of unity as Beacon Hills takes on the Beast...

This review contains spoilers.

5.20 Apotheosis

Teen Wolf is a show that seems to add to its rogues gallery every season. It's a bit like a superhero show in that respect; rarely will you get a villain who is completely and totally killed, if only because Scott is trying to do things a different way than other werewolves throughout history have done these things. In a sense, that's been a very good decision for him; he's showing compassion and winning over friends left and right because, at his core, he's a good person in spite of his power and strength. Sure, that makes it a little difficult to defeat super-strong villains like The Beast, but where some would use pure brawn, Scott's actually using his brain. »

Director Russell Mulcahy's 1986 cult classic Highlander celebrates its 30th Anniversary this month, so we take a look back at the fantasy sword-fighting pic that started it all.

Teen Wolf season 5 episode 18 review: The Maid Of Gevaudan

Teen Wolf takes a page out of the Highlander TV series' book in a time-travelling episode that takes the action to 18th century France...

This review contains spoilers.

5.18 The Maid Of Gevaudan

One of my favourite shows of all time is the TV series Highlander. It takes the Russell Mulcahy original and builds it into something a little less horrifying, a lot less dramatic, and a lot more amusing. Highlander is a show split between two time periods, one the 'modern' 90s and the other some random historical epoch, with Adrian Paul poncing about in ropy costumes while trying not to act like a modern person. After all, he's supposed to be an Immortal with a thousand years of history to inform his decisions. It's far from the best TV ever, but it's a whole lot of fun, and this week's episode of Teen Wolf wouldn't be »

Teen Wolf season 5 episode 11 review: The Last Chimera

Teen Wolf continues to capture emotional relationships, like that between father and son, with real heart...

This review contains spoilers.

5.11 The Last Chimera

One of the things Teen Wolf has done spectacularly well is capture relationships. The blush of first love. The closeness of best friends. The pain of losing a friend. The father/son bond between the Stilinski men is one of the strongest depictions of a father and son relationship on television, and to watch the two of them at odds, or to watch one comfort the other one can be really touching. When the good Sheriff of Beacon Hills is in trouble, the emotional pain Stiles goes through feels very, very real.

In my last review of Teen Wolf, I mentioned that I had been through the pain of losing a beloved car, but not the pain of losing a parent. Well, in the »
