It's is time to go back to the couch! Join Davis Grayson and FPNet Co-Founder Kyle Wagner as they return to once again traverse The Black Hole. After the outstanding responce to the retrospective the guys boarded the Palomino once again this time to bring you a commentary of this lost Disney Classic. Join them on this journey into mystery as they see if they can make it through The Black Hole! This CPT commentary was done watching the HD version of the film avaliable on Itunes.
Highlander 3: The Final Dimension was a very valiant theatrical effort. It tried very hard to re-capture many of the touchstones that made the first movie the cult phenomenon that it remains to this day. It even succeeded in creating some interesting extensions to the established canon.
It does have some very strong and signature HIGHLANDER moments, but in our opinion, it’s the overall connective tissue that really strains the Highlander audience’s ability to reconcile this as nothing more than trying TOO HARD to redirect the franchise from what was the de-railing years before in Highlander 2 - the theatrical edition.
Join Kevin and Norm as they rediscover Highlander 3: The Final Dimension and delve deeply into the subject matter of the film. From the perspective of a fresh re-watch, Kevin and Norm discover how certain parts of the film really work and propel the lore forward, moments of the film that were deliberately created to disavow Highlander 2: The Quickening, how certain signature moments were truly a blatant rip-off of 1986 and even raise a few very important canonical issues that challenge the overall canon of Highlander - specifically the rule of Holy Ground.
Oh and yes...if there is one thing that is consistent about Highlander 1 through 3...it's that iron pipes make all the difference in surviving the game!

On Oct. 24, 2014 Directors Chad Stahelski and Devid Leitch along with writer Derek Kolstad brough retired Hitman John Wick into our lives and things have not been the same. While being modestly successful in the box office John Wick took off with a die hard cult following on DVD and Blu-Ray. Telling the story of retired Hitman John Wick as he is lured back into the mob scene after the death of his wife and has his car and dog (the last gift from his wife) taken from him he comes back into this world looking for revenge for those who have wronged him. Containing some of the best action scene's in modern day films and creating a world of the mob unlike any that has been scene John Wick is a trendsetting film and has now spawned a sequal in John Wick Chapter 2.
