I listen to the soundtrack once a year or more.

I collected this on dvd - I remember a scene from the movie where he bangs a witch and almost gets killed - he then exclaims "CROM!" ... or translated "WTF!"

"Crom, grant me revenge.  If you cannot do this, then the hell with you."

"Crush enemies."

1982 was a spectacular year for genre movie's and tv shows, and music ahh the 80's i miss it.

I read all the Robert  E. Howard books before watching it at the theater . I was a bit disappointed at the plot , since parts were took from some of his books , the movie suffered from a boring storyline even though it started good .. Milius shouldnt had directed this movie , and should had stayed a writer . They said Arnie was born to play Conan ,and thats true . Too bad the second one was tacky an rated PG-13 .

 Conan as written by Oliver Stone, it don't get better than that folks...

81 better? you crazy

Blade Runner, Conan, Wrath of Khan, Swamp Thing it was good for its time, 48 Hours,The Thing, ET,  Tron even though I haven't seen it yet, Firefox awesome Clint flick, Creepshow, Poltergeist and I'm sure there's more

I was already an Arnie fan from his bodybuilding career and a huge Conan fan back then. I used to love The Savage Sword of Conan, the black and white magazine with the awesome covers and great pin-ups inside. Still have a bunch of them in my collection

I take it back maybe 81 was just as good. Looking at the 81 slate is pretty awesome indeed

This is one of my all-time favorite character movies.  Conan goes through one of the most trying and brutal protagonist journey's of any film and it has a very satisfying conclusion.  Still one of my favorites, and it hasn't suffered with time, not in my opinion anyway.  Yeah 1977-1987 is really probably the most important 10 year stretch in movie history.  Everything since then has been mostly an attempt to recapture or rethink the movies in that span.
