Flash Gordon v Highlander

Films are all about trying to have cool soundtracks nowadays. But filmmakers are so busy trying to find the hippest choones from the most up-to-date bands that they overlook the only ingredient they ever needed. Which of these two Queen-fuelled classics is the real prince of the universe? Click HERE or the pic above to read the arguments. There can be only one…

  1. Tough one…but Flash Gordon gets the vote.

  2. Highlander does NOT involve time travel!

    Why do people think it does – they are called flash backs!

    flash·back   /ˈflæʃˌbæk/
    –noun
    1. a device in the narrative of a motion picture, novel, etc., by which an event or scene taking place before the present time in the narrative is inserted into the chronological structure of the work.
    2. an event or scene so inserted.
    3. Also called flashback hallucinosis. Psychiatry .
    a. the spontaneous recurrence of visual hallucinations or other effects of a drug, as LSD, long after the use of the drug has been discontinued.
    b. recurrent and abnormally vivid recollection of a traumatic experience, as a battle, sometimes accompanied by hallucinations.

    time travel 
    –noun
    hypothetical transport through time into the past or the future.

    There is no method for travelling through time – therefore there is no time travel.

  3. Highlander is so 90’s that I have to go with it all the way!

  4. Gotta be Flash – it’s just so frikkin perverse

  5. Flash Gordon hands down. I mean, that fight scene with Prince Barin on the moving round thing-y with spikes, the stuff of legend!

  6. While Highlander has Connery, Flash Gordon plays football against Skittle colored midgets…or was that my last acid trip.

    I like that you pit two films with a Queen score against one another. My vote goes to Flash simply for the cheese factor, for Timothy Dalton and the Hawkmen….DIIIIIIVVVVEEE!!
