Now that the Governator has left the California throne, he needs to team up with Milius and finally give us KING CONAN! He's the perfect age now.

Agreed. I read the books a long time ago and really liked them. I should pick one up again.

Agreed!

Some movies don't need to be rebooted or re-imagined or whatever. In fact, they are defiled and desecrated by any attempt to do so. I understand why Hollywood is afraid to try new things. I understand the allure of established and popular movie franchises. Artistic integrity all too often loses out over $$$ in tinsel town.

I have my doubts about this Conan, he has been done to death... sense I have 0 expectation when I see it if it is good I will be over the moon happy.

On the plus side can the new Conan be any worse than Conan the Destroyer?

Wilt Chamberlain and Grace Jones? Seriously?

Absolutely sucked

hollywood massacred the character and turned him into a pointless twilight/ xeena type of feel.

Out of loyalty to the spirit of Robert Howard I went to check it out.

1. In the beginning during the cimmerian warrior trial with the stupid run over the mountain with the egg in your mouth thing all the cimmerians RAN AWAY at the first sign of a threat. Cimmerians were never known to run from anything.

2. Conan cried...automatically invalidated the movie.

3. Conan and his dad were on their knees...nope, wouldn't happen

4. The girl screamed way to much.

5. Conans thief ally screamed to much

6. How many times are conan and his foe going to threaten to kill each other."
conan: "im going to kill you
foe"no i'm going to kill you
conan "i'm serious I'm really going to kill you now"
foe" nope, you had your chances now for real, i'm killing you now"

7. the sword...how many times are they going to mention it's his dads sword and who's going to kill who with it.

the original conan...you just got it.

3D...Sucks..the movie was too dark because of the 3D glasses. the storyline wasn't

I could go on but I'm sure you get it.

Too dark? I thought it was too generic to be genuinely dark.
