Conan the Barbarian (2011)
After reading CC’s review of this movie, I can’t say my hopes were to high for this movie… but I had to see it as it’s Conan and I’ve been waiting for a new Conan movie for years.
They haven’t really succeeded making this kind of movie since the 80’s. Back then it was Schwarzenegger whome was buildt for the part. Making Jason Mamoa play Conan is like making an Apple play the role as a Watermelon in a movie about fruit… it just doesn’t fit… by the way is it me or didn’t he look more muscular and fit in Game of Thrones ? I chose to look at the movie as a Conan at a young age before getting big and strong with no empathy for the weak. You can’t compare a movie made today against the old barbarian movies as they looked more real back in the day… you don’t get that same feel with CGI, you just don’t. Sure they succeed better with scenary and the cities look cool… but they don’t feel authentic. Comparing Conan 2011 to Conan 1982 is like comparing the new Star Wars movies to the ones… Don’t even go there.
I don’t agree with CC on the subject of Rose McGowan as I think her character was the only cool thing about the movie. She was cool,HOT and evul *mwahhahah* and her outfits were kind of uhmm sexy ^.^ … and I think giving the movie 2 stars of 10 is way to harsh… It’s not like the movie was boring… yeh, sure the CGI effects were kind of shitty now and then but it’s still not that bad…. so ….
..I rate this movie 5/10 stars..
