Ron Pearlman as Conan's dad.
Rose McGowan as the baddy's daughter.

What's not to like? :)


After a promising start, with a passable young Conan
kicking some butt, the film jumps 20 years into the future
in the blink of an eye for some gratuitous T&A and a shockingly
threadbare plot.

Hints of Robert E. Howard's world over-written by the poorly
executed and partial "origin" story.


What a damn shame.

:(

Conan the Barbarian has a "shockingly threadbare plot?". Shome mishtake shurely?

It does remind me of a something LizR told me though - she is an "Information professional advisor" working in schools. One particularly limp wristed guardian of books in one of her schools was known by the inmates as "Conan the Librarian".

Is that a Discworld reference?

No - "Private Eye" - it does go back a bit tho' -Lunchtime O'Booze - you had to be there but it is still (sometimes) recognised.

Edit - I took too long composing and Nev beat me to it.

You belittle pulp fiction, sir!? :(
Never - all reading is valid.

(But I am allowed to joke - I hope).

"Pulp Fiction" the film though - something different and one of my all time favourites.

"Time to get into character"

"Check out the big brain on Brad"

"Royale with cheese"

I could go on but will desist.

It was a shocker, tbh. One of the worst remakes I've seen in recent times, and there has been some serious competition...

Indeed, ZF. Launched onto the world stage by Dino De Laurentiis.
