I never liked the original Conan-movies (and I don't know a single person who ever did).  

We are having an exceptionally bad week... Hope the next couple of weeks are better!    


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Ah, but in the "Bizzaro World" that is The RAZZIE® Awards, "an exceptionally bad week" is actually...a Berry Good Week!

I should've known the reviews on this remake would eventually descend. I need to see if there are any more nominations I could add this to the list for. The director has the following movies on his resume that caught my attention:
 
*Texas Chainsaw Massacre [remake], the 12th of 40 Worst Films of 2003.
*Friday the 13th [remake], the 25th of 40 Worst Films of 2009.
 
And about the original Conan the Barbarian from 1982... the reviews at Rotten T were 76%, which I consider "very good". Perhaps it was the Golden Globes and Saturn Awards that earned it a spot on my Retro Top 30 Films of 1982. If I thought most of you wouldn't agree with the 40 films that interest me every year since 2000, then the 1980's will be a battlefield!

I wouldn't say Jason Momoa will be "forgotten." He also stars in GAME OF THRONES, which I don't watch, but I am aware of its success.

R.T.(24-30%):"While its relentless,gory violence is more faithful to the books,it forsakes three-dimensional characters,dialogue and acting in favor of unnecessary 3D effects".

Roger Ebert(1,5/4):"A brutal,crude,witless high-tech CGI contrivance,in which no artificial technique has been overlooked,including 3-D".

I absolutely loved the first/1982 movie. However, I was not fond of the 1985 sequel. But I will see this movie sometime this weekend.
Pictures move, do they?

Let's see if I can sum up the movie as shortly as possible:

Swish of sword, blood everywhere. Swish of sword, plot and character development, what's that? Swish of sword, more under-developed characters get cut down for the sole purpose of bloodshed. Swish of sword, hero walks away into the distance. Lead actor turns to the camera and goes 'And if you don't make a pointless sequal, then to hell with you'.
You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

On the bright side: Evidently Jason Momoa has completed the first resume requirement towards eventually becoming a future governor of California.

Some of the reviewers (not all) are probably bashing the movie because it's nothing like the 1982 film (which by the way isn't faithful at all to the original stories).  Or is it that they just can't accept anybody but Arnold in the role?

...Or maybe they're bashing it because it's just bad.

Well, the theater that I went to see this in had a bad projecter. Because of this, the review well be post-poned.
 
On the bright-side, I'll have a review of Ass-face's funniest movie: The Butterfly Effect.

The original was so bad it would take great effort for the new one to be any worse. 

Something tells me they'll manage to do it though!

It seems as if this movie wants to compete with Mars Needs Moms as the biggest fail of the year

This movie was loaded with action and all other kinds of eye candy that summer movies usually have, and yet, it lost out at the box office to a movie about Southern maids in the 1960s! I guess this means there won't be a "Red Sonya" remake/reboot in the near future?
