  • Favorite Ramirez moment in the film?

    What is your favorite Ramirez moment in the film?

    For me it is the scene where he is at the tailor shop getting a new suit made.

    I'm a huge Connery fan but every scene of his in this was cringeworthy. It says a lot about H2, to me, that including Sean Connery into it actually succeeds in hurting the film even more than it already is.

        More cringe. That video wouldn't exist on any airline, thus pulling me even further out of things.

            I can just imagine how you would react if they showed that to you while you were on a plane

              Oh, I would probably eat the armrests. Horrifying.

                  Now you sound like my nephew. He prefers land himself. He doesn't trust the science behind the heavy tin cans in the air. Especially since so many of them are decades old.

                  As for the Ramirez scenes I took them all as tongue in cheek after seeing that they chose to make immortals from another planet. I never expected anything but B movie plot with the rest of the film. It was all just a big bad joke and I decided to just enjoy the silliness by telling myself Connor was experiencing a crazy dream after falling asleep at the opera. Even seeing Brigit Nielsen as the opera singer just added to the craziness we were being given. Boy, was I glad I went to the matinee instead of the evening show.

                    His first scene interrupting Hamlet has always been a favorite of mine.

                      I love his spar with Connor. "Now you ARE being ridiculoush!" But my fave moment of him, which may be my fave funny moment from all the films, is his argument with Connor over who got the most bullets.

                        It seemed to exist only to give Ramirez some kind of fight in the movie.

                          It does. He really doesn't have a fuction other than to be sacrificed in the film, but he's so delightfully realized by the sparkling dialogue they gave him and Sean Connery's fun turn, that I forgive them slightly.

                          I mean, I just love his delivery of "Greetings, Highlander. You called?"

                            Its brilliant. Corny, cheesy, sure - but man, does Connery deliver there. He sells it effortlessly and makes it poignant.

                            And who can forget "Who knowsh, MacLeod? Who knowsh?" So wonderful, its really one of the great last lines for any character in fiction.

                              This, but the pre-2004 version of the scene, where his subsequent, "...[Like] to sit on men's faces" dialogue isn't downmixed to nothingness, due to the producers later chickening out on that bit.

                                  Do you mean, "Hit it, dude!" from the MAX break-in scene?

                                  I'd have to agree with Takk, Ramirez interrupting the Hamlet play and stealing all the applause gets the biggest laugh from me, followed by his visit to the tailor.

                                  I always thought the tailor must also own an antique shop or be a jeweler because as soon as Connery takes his earring off and offers it in exchange for clothes, the tailor instantly recognizes it as being extremely valuable. How would your average tailor know something like that? Of course, there's something about most scenes in this film that beg questions like that.
