Hehe, I liked Grace Jones in Boomerang with Eddie Murphy, and some of her pop songs/videos like "Demolition Man" and especially "I'm Not Perfect, But I'm Perfect For You." Disliked her in A View To A Kill and Conan The Destroyer, but she was better than that idiot who played the thief sidekick (although he was better than Damon Wayans as Snails in the D&D movie). :wink:
Geezer said:That movie was some of the worst I have ever seen. I don't know what anyone involved with the movie or TSR/Wizards where thinking. It's worse than a really really bad episode of Xena. ARGHH!
Johannixx said:Yeah, I was disappointed that they traded in Subotai for Malick, though he did prove amusing (and eerily similar to one of my PC's) at times. For example, when I ran my group through the Crypt of the Horn, the Thief stopped and tried prying out 'shinies' despite the fact that the evil sorcerer was wizarding the front door open. The borderer had to literally drag her, kicking and screaming about 'shinies', through the tunnel, and almost lost her when he had to stop to clear away the rubble from Bombaata's doublecross.
Infidel-X said:Actually it wasn't really by choice. he actor that played Subotai (Gerry Lopez) Broke his neck in a serfing accident and could not reprise his roll. He has since recovered and is still know as one of the best surfers in the world!

It still would have been bad, because the focus had shifted from the gritty, intelligent, adult material of the original to sanitized brain-dead kiddy-crap. It was a betrayal of everything that had come before and killed any chance for the movie franchise to continue---it also helped kill sword & sorcery as a viable genre for filmmakers everywhere.
Putting The Rock in King Conan: Crown of Iron is like stabbing a hot knife in my groin and a fabulous way to destroy the movie franchise all over again. That big lummox can't act! The Scorpion King was only slightly better than Kull, and that ain't good. Bodyslam old Rock-head back into the wrestling ring where people appreciate that kind of macho posturing that poses for "acting." Next, the King Conan soundtrack will be full of rap-metal nonsense like Korn instead of Basil Polidouris.
Johannixx said:I thought Ahhhnold was supposed to be tapped for King Conan? The governorship of Kalifornia getting in his way?
Iron_Chef said:1) Wachowski Bros. lost rights to do Conan movie because they were too busy with crappy Matrix sequels.
Iron_Chef said:2) Arnold can't do King Conan because of his new job as Der Fuehrer of Kalifornia (soon to be President Ahnold if he gets his way and amends the US Constitution).
Iron_Chef said:3) Arnold could do King Conan but in a much smaller capacity, with The Rock playing Prince Conn and being the *gag* focus of the film.
