He bulked up but, still he just dosent have the look of power that Arnold had because along with having massive muscle mass Arnold has a natrual look of strengh in his face. He looks more fitting as a Tarzan then Conan

The last pic with the jumping Conan is really very good.

I am not really seduced by the rest it, to be honest. But I suspect girls will really, really love this new Conan movie and a new age of girl Conan-fans will arise.

To be a Conan fan, indeed, will become a pink girl thing. No more macho-related.

We are doomed. Laughing







I really mean it.

Oh, that would be worthy but a "Braveheart" tone would mean a mature-oriented production and this one is oriented to teens (and pre-teens). Therefore, forget about rough violence and be sure it's gonna have a very very stylized video-game style fights with lots of circus jumps and blood drawing lines in the air on slow-motion. No true sex either, but some chicks showing boobs while posing in a sort of fashion mag cover pose. This is MTV Conan.

"Braveheart" had its flaws but surely was honest with violence. It's the reason why Gibson has been so critiziced and insulted as a filmaker. Same as Milius. -- For this new Conan movie producers don't want a conflictive director, they want to be sure it's going to work in a standard, generic burgueous level. They don't want to take any kind of risks with their money.

...wich IMO is a bad choice. Making a truly conflictive movie, full of truly crude violence and mature sex would make teens love the movie. The more parents hate a film, the more teens create a cult out of it. Remember the "Mortal Kombat" videogames... (Example: the movies based on Mortal Kombat were really very very lighted, reason why these weren't too succesful. If they had had as dark and crude as the game, surely they would have becomed cult-films).

Problem is, cult-films don't get money from the ticket office... And NuMillenium wants money from the ticket office. That means: not taking risks.

I totaly hear you dude, I look at this and think this will just be like the t.v. show Spatacus blood and sand think what a crapfest that was. It had potential because of the greatness of the true story, but wound up becoming a hands down rip off of 300, along with trying to break the worlds record of how many times you can say cock in a t.v. show.

If it would have had the same seriousness that HBOs Rome had in regards to portrayal (although flawed) it would have been awsome.

Totally.

But facts seem to point to another ugly direction. "Rome" had a huge background of artists, researchers and writters supporting the ambientation, artistic design and character developmenent. It was a choral work where the pre-production process was as important and serious as the final edition. -- Another example was "Conan the Barbarian": about 4 years of development, research and designing. Very specific ideas about how to create the world, each culture, each site. And also a really good conception of how the main character's psyche was.

This new Conan movie? ... Shit One year of developement where the only thing that we are being told is all about the casting. Like that was the only work they have done. -- Script is awful. Plus they lie to audiences and take them for retards saying they are going to be faithful to Robert. They are already insulting the audiences even before having finished the film. And not a single word about the hyborean age, about the ambientation, the artist designs, the conception of the world... -- Photos seem to confirm it: generic and cheap. It could perfectly be a Xena episode, or a Spartacus episode, or anything.

He does look more like Tarzan, especially in the picture of him with bow and arrow. For my taste he looks too much like a male model to be taken seriously as a warrior like Conan. I've always pictured Conan as ruggedly handsome with a slightly sinsiter cast and scars all over his face, not a pretty boy like Mamosa.

Agreed! I only wish that Schwarzenegger and Milius had made the trilogy. Milius had great ideas for what he would have created.

IF I see this film, it will be a NetFlix rental or something. I'll be viewing it as just another 'sword & sorcery' film; cuz it's NOT a "Conan" movie.

From all outward appearances, this is just another new hollywood, would-be heartthrob with mousse in his hair, playing tough-guy.
