CONAN! WHAT IS BEST IN LIFE?
Well, May of 1982 was pretty great. Sure, you had nonsense like the bizarre Sean Connery "satire" called Wrong Is Right, but you also had the amazing John Milius version of Conan The Barbarian, so... We're ramping up now into one of the best summers of the decade, and we've got live performance films like Urgh! A Music War and The Secret Policeman's Other Ball to spotlight what pop culture was like at that time. You've got little-seen gems like The Escape Artist. And, yeah, summer arrived, and that means big movies. You want a great Steve Martin comedy? We've got one. You want a mediocre adaptation of a giant hit musical? Yep. Check. And, oh, sure, we've got one of the best action films ever made. Pull up a razor-edged boomerang and take a seat. This one's all kinds of good.
