Robert E. Howards "Conan The Barbarian" & "Red Sonja"

Robert E. Howard (1906-1936) created the coolest character in the history of fantasy fiction, and his name is Conan! Two movies about Conan has been made, Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer. The first is the best, and also the one you get a trailer for (because I don't have the other one, if I had, you'd have got it ;). Howard also created Red Sonya, a character that made the basis for Red Sonja as we know her from the comics and the film.

Conan is, as you probably know, played by the one and only Ahnuld! Did you know he has a middle name? And that it is Alois?! Aka. The Austrian Oak, and The Governator... how the hell did he became the governor of California?

Anyway, here they are:

Red Sonja, 7,04Mb.

  1. *lol* I always liked the Austrian Oak moniker. Even if it's not quite as funny as Van Damme's Muscles from Brussels.

    It's weird, your post reminded me that I will probably walk by the grave of Arnie's parents this All Saints' Day...
