Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Conan the Barbarian (1982)

Directed by John Milius

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Earl Jones, Max von Sydow, Sandahl Bergman


Probably popular because it was one of the first movies of its kind and, for today’s audiences, because it was Arnold’s first big movie. But when you strip all that away, story is lame. Blaring music and visuals are not enough to create drama.

I do like how Conan’s not entirely redeeming. He punches camels and enjoys women.
