Specially chosen by videogame designer Rob Pardo (Blizzard Entertainment Inc.)

A spirited romp through time, Highlander stars Sean Connery and Christopher Lambert as two immortal Scottish clansmen who are cursed to battle each other through the ages. At least until the mysterious 'gathering' arrives or someone gets decapitated.

Jumping between the noirish streets of 20th century America to the wide open ranges of the Scottish Highlands, director Russell Mulchay has a great time plundering history and serving up some badass, ultra-violent sword fights.

Selected by Rob Pardo of Blizzard Entertainment Inc, this cult classic offers the same giddy fantasy thrills, plus sword and sorcery action that this famed gaming company has built their empire on.
