Sword of the Conqueror (1961) available on YouTube:



It's one of only four sword and sandal films with Jack Palance (Vladimir Palahniuk) as a leading actor.

Palance is, beside being a great actor and a great screen presence, also known as a model which served for Frank Frazetta's famous Conan illustrations which are, beside the Schwarzenegger movie, THE most recognizable representations of Howard's barbarian.



The other three sword and sandal flicks with Palance are:

Sign of the Pagan (1954)

obvious Frazetta's Conan look in this one:

Revak the Rebel (1960)

The Mongols (1961)

Went to see Captain Marvel today. Good movie, and actually she acted nice in it. Again the hate is not deserved from the critics.

Too bad that she went full batshit crazy on social media and sabotage her own stuff, but the movie is a must for comic/marvel fans. So I recommend for that reason.

Just watched Alita, and I must say that it was even better than I dared hope for. :ugeek:

yes Yag is good. I liked it as well, very true to the manga. +watched it on IMAX so was nice eye porn. Critics wrong on this one as well. Including the idiots saying where the asians, when the movie takes place in future Murica, Kansas :mrgreen:

I just hope they make the second part. Also, you can watch the old anime is on Youtube, even though the original creator of Alita don't like it, I thing is good as well.

Actually, I'd rather read again the manga... :D

Also, the actor they choose for Nova is Edward Norton, right? I don't think they'd choose one like him, if they didn't plan to go on with the story... ;)
