Say what you will about Ahhhnold’s acting, but John Milius’ Conan the Barbarian will always remain an iconic movie for me. Not least among those reasons is the thundering, gloriously operatic score composed for it by Basil Poledouris. Listen, ye mortals, and despair!
- Swords, we seek swords, savage ones.
- We, iron kings, servants of Doom.
- Farewell, heaven; farewell, earth; farewell, snow; we die!
- Farewell, for, the servants of Doom, we die!
