Quote of the Day

Despite initial poor reception, Highlander was a king of the video market, developing a huge following that persists to this day. So strong is this following that three television shows, three theatrical sequels including a crossover with the TV show hero, a direct to DVD sequel and and an animated movie would follow- not to mention the novelizations. So strong is this following that the hatred of a Highlander fan for 1992′s The Quickening, 2000′s Endgame or 2007′s The Source is so vivid that a fan of the Star Wars trilogy is liable to end a conversation about those sequels with the fervent belief that, you know what, The Phantom Menace wasn’t half bad, after all.
-- Bill Silvia from the post Movie Review: Highlander (1986)
