NOT FOR THE OFFICE! : Conan the Barbarian movie review

Conan the Barbarian

In my opinion Conan the Barbarian (1982) is one of the best movies ever made. What’s that – you laugh?

With the release of the new trailer of the 3D remake, I can’t help but to say:

“Why Hollywood? Have you run outta ideas? Every TV show and successful movie under the sun has been redone with mediocre effort. *And just a side note – In two years, 3D cinema will be about as cool as “rollerblades”. You don’t have to do them all in 3D. Take it back a notch.”

What does this have to do with vector art? Nada. But we thought that you would enjoy a laugh today.

I think that the way that NBC handled the whole situation was a big mistake. Not just ethically but strategically. Conan (like it or not) represents a generation that is quite simply out of Jay Leno’s grasp.

Instead of focusing entirely on the ratings numbers, they should have moved Leno out to pasture and used Conan’s internet momentum to build a success instead of starting from scratch. It was a bad move because it showed the world that NBC has got one foot in the past while modern comedy media marches on.

Conan O’Brien premiers his new show tonight on TBS and like a red haired phoenix from the ashes, so too shall this 7 foot tall Irishman rise. Up yours Leno.

Check out this charming spot for American Express – a brand that is hitching it’s wagon early.
