They can get Lambert to play the main role.

On the one hand, Highlander's kinda crap, so it could probably be improved significantly by a remake.

On the other, it somehow manages to not be crap because of all the random aspects (like the fact it has a soundtrack by Queen) that come together to make it special, and I doubt that could be replicated.

It just would have been SO much better if they'd airbrushed out the harness cables from the last fight scene in post production, even a little bit.

Otherwise, for 1985, it wasn't a bad film.

I liked the film. I liked it more because of the soundtrack, but it was still a good film.

It prompted me to watch this again...

Stunning scenery and without doubt one of Freddie's finest vocals. It's definitely in my top 5 Queen songs, if not 'the' top.

I agree completely with everything you say here.

I'm ignoring Elessar's attempt at humour!

I think Lambert would be really good in a Highlander film! And he could do a song with Queen and they could make a video with bits of the film! Who's with me?

Don't you know...
There Can Be Only One
Lambert!

~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~

I wouldn't speak too loudly if you don't want to see it happen...I could easily see this as the excuse they need for them to record a song together....

A comedian should never explain his jokes! We did get it, it just didn't deserve a :lol: it was more of a :P, or even a :?.
