Metal chains hurts less with CGI.

The first movie, infamously, did result in the killing as many as a dozen horses who, tripped, with broken legs (or far worse) had to be put to sleep. Nice, Arnold:

The new one has a similar scene in the trailer:

    Can we get a 'Conan the Yogi" meme going, or what?

  2. Dude, did you really go to the Conan movie expecting the title character to exemplify yogic values?
    He's Conan the fucking barbarian, dude.

    Nice job with the spelling on this one, though…

    Yes, please!

    Perhaps a brief refresher on the philosophy of Conan is: "Conan! What is best in life?"

    …apparently, he's not a yogi. He did seem to skim through the Bagavad Gita a bit, now that I think about it.
