Thread: Conan!

  1. #1

    Default Conan!

    And no, not that rotten Funcom stuff.

    Just watched Conan the Barbarian again for like the 6-7th time on TV while fooling around here a bit and I must say it's an amazing movie.
    Sure, some bad acting and bad effects...but it feels so real.

    In my opinion it depicts that "fantasy" barbarian better than any other movie I've seen in my life...just the honest but ruff nature in which they speak.

    "Why are you crying for him?"

    "He's a semerian, he cannot cry, so I cry to him"

    In the middle of the funeral/burning.


    And it I think depicts a world where truly a man one might even consider savage and viscious becomes the hero and takes up the battle against the real darkness and oblivion that threatens everyone.
    Fighting for gold, for revenge of his family, for his life, for love....A true barbarian.


    What do you think? Is this the best fantasy barbarian movie ever made or what? Would you watch a remake of it?

    I think if they managed to really make a good remake and not some polished crap that I'd watch it. Even pay to watch it.

    Safety first, and all that, but when you start putting rubber baby buggy bumpers on an intense sandbox MMORPG like Darkfall you're really committing quite a heinous degree of heresy.

    Arnold's performance pretty much screams "I was contractually obligated to make this movie"

    I think I don't want to agree. LOTR and Conan have big big difference,

    Conan the destroyer was the better movie.

    It had that scene where Arny punched the camel in the head for spitting on him, and Olivia d'Abo was totally fuckable - even Grace Jones looked pretty hot.

    And Tracey Walter was awesome as Malak, his thief sidekick. Very funny actor.

    Malak: I think we made the merchant angry.
    Conan: Are you surprised?
    Malak: But we didn't steal everything he had!
    Conan: We didn't have time.


    Malak: Why are they trying to kill us?
    Conan: Maybe they want to capture us, and torture us to death.

    Arnold kills a bunch of people, slashes up some baddies pretty good, cuts the head off a giant snake, and then goes on a crusade of death against a roving band of flower-child hippies. How can it be bad in any way?

    Also, Krull was pretty cool too.
