Throwback Thursday: Conan The Barbarian
Conan The Barbarian (1982)
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Earl Jones, Max von Sydow
Plot: A vengeful barbarian warrior sets off on a revenge-filled adventure to slay the conquering cult leader who killed his parents and massacred his tribe.
Conan was the role that made Arnold a star and really gave James Cameron the confidence that he could play The Terminator a couple of years later. Arnold will always be more famous for portraying the Terminator but without his performance here, he may never have had the career that he has had. I for one love Conan The Barbarian. It is 10 times the movie that the sequel would turn out to be and you really get invested in the epic-ness of the film.
