Conan the Barbarian is in the dock. As smooth as a well oiled bicep or the punch that broke the camel's jaw?

Alex defends, saying that excellent direction and simple story make this a classic of the sword and sorcery genre. Dave prosecutes, saying that this is a film that involves snakes being rubbed straight into arrows that somehow manages to take itself too seriously.

All this with an impression of the great Max Von Sydow and a quiz all about frequent Arnie collaborator Sven-OleThorsen.
