    • There are a handful of films that may seem like sure bets in theory, but in execution are complete failures in my eyes. I honestly can't think of a better film for that category than 2011's Conan The Barbarian....

    • There are very few “swords and sandals” based revenge flicks that I am this ambivalent on. I usually eat them up and watch them multiple times, or actively hate them for betraying the genre. I actually...
