YMMV: Conan The Barbarian 1982
Adaptation Displacement: John Milius's film is likely what many think about when they hear the name Conan the Barbarian and not the Howard stories. And it's very likely that Conan = Arnold for many people. Anyone who plays Conan gets compared to him. He is Older Than They Think, predating Superman's debut by five years.
Anvilicious: According to this Overthinking It article the 1980s Conan movies have strong feminist, anti-racist and atheistic themes. Then again, that's not necessarily a bad thing given the time.
Awesome Music: Well it does have one of the best movie soundtracks ever made.
In fact, there are some music critics who consider this score to be one of the greatest classical music compositions of the 20th century.
Complete Monster: Thulsa Doom, who does things such as decapitating a woman while her child stands next to her, orders his followers to murder their parents, and compels a young woman to commit suicide just so he can prove a point.
Memetic Mutation: Even people who haven't seen the movie can quote the "what is best in life?" scene (although the original is attributed to the real Ghengis Khan, an expy of which is in the scene).
Narm Charm: Although many of the quieter scenes are actually well done, a good portion of the movie is narm. Awesome, glorious narm that fits both the setting and the story like a glove, somehow managing to be incredibly moving when in other movies it would be incredibly lame.
The camel who gets punched out (twice, even!) in both this movie and its sequel.
Unfortunate Implications: As Roger Ebert noted as early as the film's release: Conan becomes a Germanic superman with a black arch-enemy. As hinted by his name, the original Conan was Celtic (or rather, his people were ancestors of the Celts) and in his original stories he had no arch-enemy at all.
Though Thulsa Doom has blue eyes and is swarthy rather than truly black. And he's just the Big Bad of the movie, not a recurring arch-enemy.
