Alternative DVD commentaries for the worst movies of 2011
Welcome back, boys... again.Fuck this movie.I'm a huge fan of R.E. Howard, as well as the John Milius movie. Even though it wasn't particularly faithful to the source material I still think it's a masterpiece on its own terms.What we have with this version is what a lot of people THINK Conan is about. It's a dumb, sadistic, misogynistic piece of adolescent wish-fulfillment drivel.It has so little to do with what makes the stories such classics.
Good to see you guys pinching another one off. I was worried the 2011 blasts weren't going to get the justice they deserve.Speaking of justice, as a personal request, you guys have GOT to do Cowboys & Aliens. It's a long story, but I've dealt with Platinum Studios, the company that sold the movie rights to that piece of shit, and they're a bunch of liars. I'm glad that movie bombed.
Another R.E. Howard movie that was actually okay was SOLOMON KANE. It's not great, but as a mid-budget action/fantasy it does a far better job than this expensive dud.You guys also have to do JOHN CARTER. It's not a terrible movie, just a very dull one that happens to be the biggest bomb of all time.$250 million they spent on that bore.
