On Episode 80 of The Film ’89 Podcast, John Arminio and professional film poster artist Tony Stella join Skye to celebrate yet another 40th anniversary. Last episode it was Blade Runner and now it’s another classic from 1982, John Milius’ big screen adaptation of the character made famous in the books of Robert E. Howard, Conan The Barbarian starring titanic screen icon, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Milius’ film, based on a script by Oliver Stone, is no B-movie sword & sorcery, hack & slash fest. There’s a depth of well executed storytelling at play, coupled with a sparse but perfectly crafted script, all wrapped up with an astonishing, all-time great score from composer Basil Poledouris, and a stellar supporting cast. Join the guys as they throw on their wolf pelts, pick their weapons of choice, and set forth to discover the answer to The Riddle of Steel.
