Utter win! Although I reserve re-watching my favourite films for special occasions nowadays, in an effort to see more new films.

I only re-watched for something to do. Didn't fancy watching Brian Yuzna's Society while off college feeling a bit ill ;)
However, that's subject to change as I now can't be arsed to watch Conan...
So.. Society, Blood Feast or Zombie Transfusion (aka Automaton Transfusion)?

They're remaking Conan. This is who's playing him.

It will probably be watered down and very child friendly :(

That line did make me laugh. Fucking good practical effects, too! Screaming Mad George is a genius.

and judging by his appearances in stargate atlantis, he is a pretty bad actor as well. i just can't see anyone who isn't as cartoonishly muscular as arnold schwarzenegger as conan.

Why don't you put an up to date pic of Arnie walking on the beach flapping his old man moobs just to make it fair eh? Then we'd see who is now the better Conan, in perspective.


Okay, have a more up to date picture.

Nope.
Still not Conan.

Nearest I could think of who's big and can act a bit would be Dwayne Johnson.
Yeah, I could just about see The Rock as Conan. Just as long as he didn't do that eyebrow thing every five minutes.

Went to see Ninja Assassin (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1186367/) last night. Was one of those all-out, cheesy-as-hell ninja films that you really ever see any more (some would say with good reason). I enjoyed it, was satisfyingly bloody and some decent fighting, even if the cgi was a little too noticeable. Just don't expect a highly cerebral plot.
