I just rented this from the Android Marketplace for .99 cents. I know I'm in a VERY small minority, but I actually enjoyed the film. It wasn't extraordinary, but it was good. I'll pick it up when it dips under $10.

This is the first Blu-ray from Lionsgate that I've seen that has the new DTS (company) lossless trailer. It's pretty rad.

I tried on back to back nights to make it through this movie, and I couldn't. It is one if the worst movies I have seen in a long long time. I felt like I was watching one of those made for tv movies on sy-fi network.

Deplorable movie.

I'll wait till the Blu-ray 3D hits five bucks.

Watch Sucker Punch or Dark of the Moon, then you will think again.

The first time I watched it I enjoyed it for the entertainment point, but I kept thinking to myself that it felt like one of those old crapfest Sinbad movies.

Got around to seeing this today and really enjoyed it. Never read any Conan books, just seen the Arnold movies, so have no knowledge on how good of an adaptation it is. Liked the guy playing Conan, Stephen Lang is always good and got to ham it up a bit, plus Ron Perlman (who did the voice of Conan for a videogame a few years back). Glad I blind bought. Will get to the 3D eventually.

This is closer to Robert E. Howard's vision of Conan and Hyboria than Arnie's earlier outing. Momoa is definitely closer to the Conan of the books too.
However, poor plotting and lack of character development lets the film down. Throw in listless direction and you have a failure basically, albeit an interesting one though.
