I probably would've been chased out of the theater accept the rest of the audience joined in with me! Schwarzenegger's acting was sooo bad in that movie. I became an Arnie fan with Terminator , though, but Conan the Barbarian will always be a (near) comedy to me.

The decapitation of his mother was very affecting and a great, great shot.

Well he was a barbarian after all. Not Hamlet. "To crush or not to crush, that is the question."

He was, and it was great film of the early 80's. Shame Conan The Destoryer sucked so hard. The only flim that was more of a disappointment was Mad Max Beyond Thundedrdome.
