Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

Legends is celebrating the Christmas season with two modern classics that celebrate their 15th anniversary this year! This week we’re talking about 2003’s Love Actually, written and directed by Richard Curtis, which spawned a number of holiday themed knock-offs with interconnected characters (Mother’s Day, anyone?) and boasted numerous actors in smaller parts who have now achieved mega-stardom. It’s now a staple of holiday viewing, but is it a Christmas Legend? Or does this movie “Actually” stink?

Legends Podcast #401; Highlander (Second Opinion)

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

One-hundred and fifteen episodes ago, Wing, Beef, and Shark Taco decreed that Highlander was one of the worst movies they’d ever seen. It joined Spring Breakers at the bottom of the ratings chart, where it has remained until this day. This has stuck in Lobster’s craw since he joined the podcast two years ago. Now is the time of The Gathering, when an elderly Spaniard will join Lobster in the fray to defend Highlander’s honor. The Prize, if they win: the film will be redeemed. If they lose, it will live forever as the worst of the worst. In the end, this is Legends Four Hundred and (There Can Be Only) One!
