 I demand an "Hour of the Dragon" movie!  No screenwriter or director has really understood the Conan character.  Howard's original stories are not about a hero, their about a treasure seeking badass killer.  That's where a good Conan story lies.  You've heard it here before, but the best way to do Conan would be a HBO/Showtime series with boobs and blood a'la Game of Thrones.  Starting out young as Conan the Thief, then Conan the Pirate, the Conan the soldier, then Conan the General and finally Conan the King.
