Drink 'til it's good - Highlander 2: The Quickening
The year is 2024... That opening statement is pretty much the only thing that the film, Highland 2 got right. For, what happens when a sequel totally ignores the rules the first film established? What happens when the film's backers get rid of the director and edit the film without his input? What happens when pretty much everyone involved, including the film's lead actors want out but can't escape due to contractural obligations? What happens when the finished film is such a mess because of interference by the producers and studio that the director releases his "Renegade Cut" of the film to correct those mistakes (but only just barely)? The year is 2024...and we're doing our first "Drink 'Til It's Good" of the year with a look at Highlander 2: The Quickening!

Rebel Moon: A Dumpster of Fire???
Zack Snyder is back with his latest movie made exclusively for NETFLIX. The story goes that, back in the day, ol' Zack wanted to play in Lucasfilm's sandbox but they said "No!" so, Zack picked up his action figures (characters with names like Bloodaxe and Nemesis), went home and said "I'm gonna make my own Star Wars but with hookers and blackjack!" Ok, that's only sort of true but, nonetheless, we have Rebel Moon part one: A Child Of Fire, loosely based on Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai.  What did we all think? Tune in and find out!

3GD Fifth Anniversary Episode
Back in 2018 when Marc asked his friend Brien what he knew about starting a podcast, did he realize that this little "hobby" would be going strong five years later? Who can say?!? What we do know, though, is that it's been a hilarious, wild and fun ride. For, what started out as 3 guys huddled around a single mic soon evolved into 4 guys, many, MANY equipment upgrades later, hanging out each week and sharing what they love with you, the listener...their passions for all things geeky!
