When the wife was away for the evening taking a stained glass art class, your tavern keeper decided to stream Conan the Barbarian via Netflix. You know the one - the 2011 Blockbuster hit. Huh, it wasn't a blockbuster? Shit!
Alright, first things first - I'm not all that up on my Conan fiction, so I'm not married to the canon. I can't sit here and say "this shit never happened in a Howard story!" because truth be told, most of my experience with Conan was the Marvel comics series' (oh, and Conan the King - I really enjoyed that one).
What all this means is that I got to watch Conan the Barbarian as a fantasy movie first and a Conan movie second. As a fantasy movie? One of the better ones to come out in recent years. As a Conan move? Call me a heretic, but it was better than the Arnie version from my youth. I really enjoyed it. My wife wouldn't have, but she fell asleep 15 minutes into The Fellowship of the Ring ;)
If there is one thing I need to yoke it's the sand warriors. That fight scene was many layers of awesome and I'd love to put my layers through something similar, at least opponent-wise. Maybe I'll write them up in the next few days OSR compatible...
