John Milius in Conan the Barbarian

Conan the Barbarian

1982 R

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in his breakout role as Conan, who -- after his parents are killed by an evil sorcerer (James Earl Jones) -- is sent to a slave camp, where he trains to be a gladiator. Once granted freedom, the bruiser seeks to avenge his parents' deaths. This pure swords-and-sorcery epic is one of the best of its kind, sparking a wave of fantasy films (as well as a sequel) in the early 1980s.
