    Conan the Barbarian (2011)

    Conan the Barbarian was a great film, and then Hollywood screwed it up by making this travesty. They tried as hard as they could to try and make this crappy film appealing, but the entire film just falls flat on its ass. The characters are basically nothing but mere stock characters, and the script, and perhaps the plot, is loaded with clichés. Perhaps the film's strong point is its decent special effects. However, I think they spent too much time making the film look pretty. Though there's plenty of action, it all feels quite shallow, but it can be so brutal that it shouldn't be viewed in 3D, even if it may have been what the makers were intending. Overall, it's a shallow, pointless remake that didn't even try to live up to the original.
