This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Immortals

Did you notice? It's the #100 edition of Thursday Movie Picks!!! How amazing is that; I can't believe it's been 100 hundred weeks of this. I still have plenty more topics in mind so here's to a hundred more!
 
Today's topic is: Immortals. Since we've already had a week for Vampires before, I'm staying clear of them. 
 
Highlander (1986)
An immortal Scottish man must continually duel with others of his kind throughout the centuries because "there can be only one". I don't remember much of the first movie so I'd love to rewatch the movie that spawned a number of sequels and a TV series which I used to tune in to quite a bit. 

Peter Pan (2003)
A boy who never grows up leads a couple of children away from their London home to magical Neverland. Love this movie; very well made and just incredibly magical and charming.
  
Tuck Everlasting (2002)
Another story about a girl meeting a boy that never grows old. While Peter Pan deals more with the fear growing up, Tuck Everlasting which is also based on a children's book deals more with the fear of death and what it means to never die.

  1. Man, I had no idea this was the magical 100th week! It was a great idea and it's been a fun ride. Looking forward to continuing it with you.

    I've only seen Highlander and that is the best the franchise has to offer. Very good stuff. I've seen a ton of versions of Peter Pan, just not that one. I'm totally clueless on Tuck Everlasting.

    1. Yeah the 100th crept up on me too.

  2. Aha! I mentioned both Highlander and Tuck but I didn't pick them. To be honest I wasn't a fan of either. I love the Peter Pan story and always will, its a classic story, up there with Alice and OZ, but I wasn't a fan of this version either, it might be the snob in me though.

    1. I love this version of Peter Pan, it was the one that made me understand the whole fascination with Peter Pan.

  3. picked Highlander which you should revisit-forget the sequels. I haven't seen the other 2 though but I have seen other Peter Pan versions including the silent version

    1. I don't think I've ever seen the Highlander sequels. I did watch the series when it was on air so many years ago and I thought they were pretty good.

  4. I thought of Peter Pan for this week but I would have wanted to go with the telefilm of the musical starring Mary Martin, by far my favorite version of the story.

    Haven't seen Tuck Everlasting since it came out but I remember being ever so slightly disappointed. LOVE the book, though.

    1. Oh...I've never heard of the telefilm version. Have to admit I wasn't into the Peter Pan story until I saw the version I picked.

      Tuck Everlasting - I've read the book too, only recently as an adult. Can't say I enjoyed it; it's hard for me to enjoy middle grade books now but I do like the story. Having read the book, I thought it was a pretty good adaptation. One of those instances where I think aging up the main character was a good choice.

  5. Congrats on 100! I love 2003's Peter Pan. I think aside from the Disney cartoon, it's my favorite adaptation of it.
