The commentary track by director John Milius and star Arnold Schwarzenegger on their 1982 film “Conan the Barbarian” has long been one of my favorite DVD commentaries of all time and now you can see why. Full of lunkheaded philosophy, random questions, incredibly obvious observations, and borderline creepy leering, It is just as, if not more entertaining, than the actual film itself. I’ve found highlight reels on YouTube before, but none this comprehensive or well-edited:
I sincerely hope that once Governor Schwarzenegger’s term is over that he returns to Los Angeles and gets down to real important work: recording a commentary with Milius for “Conan the Destroyer.” Who cares that Milius didn’t direct it. Hell, I’d pay to listen to them do commentary on movies they had nothing to do with. Can you imagine Schwarzenegger and Milius on “Twilight?” Am I starting the Facebook petition or are you?
