Monday Movie Review

Conan the Barbarian
In case you were unsure, the movie was the boy's choice. Except as we left the theater, the boy paused in front of a poster for 30 Minutes or Less, "Why didn't you tell me this movie was out? I would have rather seen this than Conan." Oh, well... too little too late, right? But onto the review.

It actually wasn't that bad. Or at least not as bad as I was dreaded. I actually rather like Jason Momoa as the lead. It didn't help that he was nice to look at too! Rose McGowen came off really creepy as the evil sorceress, in a role that fit her quite well. As for the movie itself? Well it's a ton of gore (I can't even count the number of decapitated heads throughout), a ton of nudity (don't you love it when "Topless Wenches" are listed in the credits), and even a sex scene or two. So pretty much the perfect movie for a teenage boy. Unfortunately, I am not a teenage boy. But even so, the movie could have been worse. And no we did not pay for the 3-D on this one, just in case you were curious.

  1. I'm glad my husband hasn't mentioned wanting to see this one. We planned on seeing The Rise of The Apes but never actually made it.
