Conan the Barbarian

Unspooled #305.2 April 20, 2022

Paul & Amy crush 1982’s Arnold Schwarzenegger pulp fantasy Conan The Barbarian! They learn the purpose of the Wheel Of Pain, praise the operatic storytelling of Basil Poledouris’s score, and try to pinpoint the moment where Arnold became a movie star. Plus: is Batman 1989 a kid’s movie?
