Conan The Barbarian, why even bother putting this movie on local T.V.?

    I own this DVD as it is one of my favorite movies so the gripe I have is a small one, but still one that peeves me.
    So I am flicking the channels on T.V. and I come across Conan, so I figure, o.. cool.
    Well, it was the end of the movie where Conan starts preparing for the incoming Thulsa Doom army and LET ME JUST TELL YOU, as if you didn't know already, every friggin fight scene was either cut or just horribly edited. You barley see any of the action sequences and if they do try and show them to you they look so out of order.
    Anyway, a great movie like this should only be seen on 3 places only, your VCR, your Laser Disc or your DVD player [​IMG]

    Try ONE place: DVD. "TO CRUSH YOUR ENEMIES, SEE THEM DRIVEN BEFORE YOU, AND TO HEAR THE LAMENTATION OF THE WOMEN," is, indeed, what is best in life.

    OAR DVD is the correct choice unless you're a serious enthusiast who owns film projection equipment and likes handling 35mm/70mm film reels.

    Broadcast for a movie .. (shudder) No way Jose. I'd rather stare at the wall and think than watch a film butchered and chopped into commercial breaks. Screw that.

    I saw it for the first time on a public broadcasting channel about 10 years ago or so and they barely edited anything. They even left all the nudity in. [​IMG]
