Anne F (us) wrote: This film was let down by inaccuracies in its telling of Albert Pierrepoint's work, although the portrayal pf pre- and post-war life appeared accurate. The film left me feeling completely unaffected - many years ago I saw 10 Rillington Place which remains the most disturbing film I have ever seen, with an eloquent argument against capital punishment.

Phil H (fr) wrote: The first film to get Arnie on the way to the man he is today, and the first of three very similar fantasy flicks. Based on a pulp comic character from the 30's this film franchise turned the idea on its head and into a cult spanning many different formats and influencing other fantasy films, it also helped some videogames along the way.The plot is simple, Conan is taken from his family who have been conveniently killed by a band of nasty warriors dressed in black. He is put into slavery and made to do hard labour for the rest of his foreseeable future. The torturous slavery makes Conan big and strong despite the apparent lack of decent food, nutrients, fishfingers or milk. He eventually is sold into gladiatorial fighting where he becomes a brilliant battler and swordsman and wins his freedom. From there on he's off to avenge his families death, as you do.Obvious premise but its an old film folks. Yes the film is old, back in 82 things were different, what you see now when watching is a horribly cliched, predictable, hammy, semi cheap looking mess, but back then it was fresh...ish. All the bad guys wear black and look a bit camp with their wigs and handlebar moustaches, you wonder why exactly these groups of bad guys always attack and kill helpless useless peasants, what's in it for them? why they always leave one kid alive to grow up and take revenge on them?? and what is James Earl Jones character actually up to? what's his goal? his plans? why do all those people follow him? etc...Yeah I know I'm being picky, it matters not really, the film is old and all these barbarian films are pretty much the same, its all about the spectacle and fantasy right. This first film is definitely more adult than the rest, lots of blood splashing about with limbs being hacked off...good stuff. Yet despite that there isn't too much action really, more character development surprisingly and what action there is has some nice effects too, nice snake work and some nice animated spirits also.To be honest I've actually always preferred the original 'Beastmaster' film over Conan. There a few nice moments in this but really its pretty tepid, if only 'The Beastmaster' starred Arnie. And what the hell was that huge wheel thing Conan pushes for half his life suppose to be? a mill? a well? or merely for torture? a plan that backfired for Thulsa Doom methinks.In the end the final teasing image and narration about King Conan is actually far more interesting and intriguing than the film that preceded it.

Ian G (gb) wrote: Journey from Motown to off the Wall is Spike Lee's second documentary following Michael Jackson's career with some of his more "less lauded" albums projects, in this case the creative arc he took with first the Jacksons straight out of Motown and the material that they did together, before connecting with mentor Quincy Jones on the Wiz which led him to the landmark Off the Wall album which was a huge hit and provided some great tracks at the tail end of disco and perfectly positioned him for success with Thriller. A lot of pop culture icons are brought into provide commentary on that period from Rosie Perez, the drummer from the Roots, Quincy Jones, Pharrell and Lee Daniels, and what tracks or moments, particularly how Michael was able to cross so many boundaries at that time, especially in pop culture and on the dance floor. Bad 25 is still my preferred doc since that was right at the height of my childhood and I have more connection to that album. Journey from motown to Off the Wall is a decent representation and insight to that period of Jacko's career which may have been over shadowed by other hits and controveries. Solid.
