I'll be in switzerland until monday. Be safe all.
I watched Conan yesterday. It was an ok movie. Not so great. It started well, I liked the whole youth of Conan part, which was nicely made and such. A bit too much gore overall in the movie, sadly. Then we directly skip to Conan's pirate days (too bad for the thief days and the tomb robber days) at which he found a guy trying to restore Stygia's power (it actually is never named in the french version, but that how it is named in the books).
At this time, the movie become a video game : Conan goes from boss to boss, killing them without much interaction. That were it dissapoints. Little dialogs (while Conan do have a keen intelect and nice replies in the books), he doesn't says a word about magic and his hatred of wizards... and the final guy doesn't seem to be able to do anything with the powerful artifact he found or his daughter cast spells as she used earlier in the movie... the end just seems... rushed...
