Is it me?



I know one shouldn't judge a movie by its advance stills, but why is it every photo thus far released for the new Conan has me less and less interested and reaching for my DVD of the Arnie/Milius version? Oh, it's because every photo looks increasingly shite, that's why.

Hooray for boobies!

Gahd, this does look pretty awful. I guess we shall have to wait and see when a trailer finally arrives but still...

You want boobies? Get yee to Piranha 3D.

But Milius' film had them too, if I remember correctly.

It will be very hard to top Milius - Arnie punching out a horse? Killing a giant snake? James Earl Jones turning into a snake? Lots of luck to this new film!

I've always liked the bit when Arnie does that swinging-swishing thing with his sword against the bright blue sky... I remember seeing a Spanish TV commercial for it as a kid and that moment has stayed with me since then.

Wonder how this new one will compare to Conan The Destroyer?

Hah! I dunno if it could be any worse than CONAN THE DESTROYER but, hey, anything's possible.

I remember as a kid seeing a clip on TV for CONAN with Arnie reciting that "crush our enemies" speech and really wanting to see the film!
