John Milius – 1982

What can you say about this epic fantasy from director John Milius? Arnold Schwarzenegger is great, Milius and Oliver Stone‘s script is rich and textured and and the rousing score from Basil Poledouris is fantastic!

This hugely entertaining Sword and Sorcery film has aged incredibly well over the last 40 years. You could argue that it should have been longer as there’s so much story to be told, but the fast pace keeps things moving along and it never slows down.

Conan The Barbarian is Hollywood moviemaking at its finest.
