Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!

"Conan The Barbarian" is one of my top-ten favorite movies of all time. This is a film that was fascinating in my childhood, and it is still awesome as an adult. It is probably the best sword and magic / fantasy movie ever made.

Schwarzenegger was only one person in the world who could play Conan. I heard Hollywood plans to do a remake? Difficult to imagine Conan without Arnie. Yes. The performance from the principal actors (Schwarzenegger, Sandahl Bergman & Gerry Lopez) are not exactly masterstrokes of brilliant acting , but this is not the point.

You can enjoy this movie at many levels : there is the action (which is very graphic, gore), the wonderful cinematography (filmed in Almeria, Spain) .

But what really makes this movie epic to me is its musical score by Basil Poledouris. His scores manages to uplifts the movie to a much higher level. I really can't imaging how this movie would had been without his musical score.
