I don't know why Conan needed to be remade given its awesomeness, but this version was acceptable. There was plenty of blood, titties and cheese. It didn't have the epicness of the original and the lead dudes' man-boobs were distractingly large.
Ah, I just checked IMDb, and this Conan was also Khal Drogo which explains why he looked familiar.
I recommend this movie.
