Van Helsing did not go direct to DVD as Solomon Kane did.

Sadly any Robert E Howard stuff does not translate well to the big screen. But then he tended to invoke the reader's imagination rather well.


So that's why I never heard of Solomon Kane movie wise until now. Damn.

As for what you said, sadly only the first 2 Conan movies were well received and King Kull was ok. However the first Red Sonja and Conan remake were panned from what I understand.

The Red Sonja was horrible but the recent Conan was actual not at all bad. It was pretty good and in some ways, closer to the books then the prior films. Hell Jason Momoa looked right and rather like the Barry Windsor Smith Conan instead of the Ahnold SortaJohnBuscema version.
Kull was basically Hercules but called Kull instead.

Yeah I saw the new Conan two years ago and liked it as Jason Momoa nailed the role. Too bad his good portrayal didn't stop the film from tanking. The script could have been better but I didn't think it was as horrible as the critics made it out to be.

Yeah, I saw it the same way. It was an okay action film and I thought the critics were setting the bar too high. It was a Conan film after all.
I'd like to see more with Jason as Conan and see perhaps, a good pastiche of Robert E Howard stories for the film.
