No Poledouris, no care. 70% of the original was the soundtrack. I still get goosebumps with Anvil of Crom, Atlantean Sword or Civilization.

I hope he goes back on the roids before the movie so he doesn't look as saggy as he does in those ocean rescue pictures from when he was the Govinator.

Personally Conan never interested me much.

Holycrap finally realized that making reboots of old and awesome franchise doesnt really cut it. They need Ahnold magic.

Uhm, OK. Tallgrass prairie had grasses up to 10' tall.

I'd rather see him as Cohen, Ghengiz. Would suit him well at that age, and he is already at #1 of Cohen casting suggestions.

Yeah, I'd like to see a long, historically faithful Ghengis Khan movie. Ahnold would be a bad choice, though, because he looks nothing like a Mongol and the retarded accent would ruin it. They tried the same thing with John Wayne once, and it was absurd. :lol:

I saw a good movie about GK a few years ago: Mongol.

That looks pretty good. Thanks for pointing it out.

I'd like to see more stuff about Bronze Age cultures. Troy was entertaining, although they didn't provide much historical context. Same for Alexander. The 300 was entertaining but too stylized and not historical. I'd like to see something about the Hittite conquest of Anatolia, for example (not the Biblical "Hittites" but the real ones: the "Hatti"). That's a people generally neglected by Western culture and a great story involving some interesting characters, the dawn of the Iron age, and the roots of the conflict between Western and Middle Eastern civilizations.

OK, you probably misunderstood :lol:

I had meant something else... http://www.ull.ac.uk/exhibitions/pratchett/cohen.shtml

The Last Hero. Leader of the Silver Horde, he and his band of senior-citizen swashbucklers travel about the Disc looking for adventure, surprises, and a place to sit down, because those double-handed broadswords get really heavy, you know? Although they don't make 'em like they used to, that's for sure. Last seen riding into the sky on a Valkyrie steed.
