Yep. At great expense, too. Morons.

It still would have sucked had China been the invading power, but at least it would have been believable on its face.

It's been quite a while since I watched it but didn't they team up with Russia?

Yea. The original works because it was at a specific point in history with two world superpowers.

It felt like the USSR could have done that for sure.

It was supposed to be china. But shelved and edited as they didn't want to piss of the money being made there.

For conan. I would like to see him as old man conan. He is now a ruler. And twinging in evil from power. He has his kids and they are trying to stop the rebels. Come to find out those are his brat kids also. Or we could see old man conan and his generals vs a great opposing force. Make is like a western.

For predator. I want a proper avp.

Have Dutch and the guy from predator 2 team up. They have been tracking incidents for decades. Barely missing them. Finally catch up to the predators battling it out against military and corporation. They die in the end to help defeat the predators and corporate mercs.

Something along those lines.

Also, there's not a chance in hell he's even a centimeter taller than 5'10.

But you're absolutely correct: If he was to take on the role of Conan, he'd need a "fake" sword, like a fake lightsaber, in order to "fight" onscreen.

People shrink as they age. Hell, I'm down an inch already at just age 45.

Not sure about 4" drop, but Arnold has put his spine through hell over the decades.

You'd have be a beast to effectively use that thing for real, and while I'm sure he's still in great shape for his age, his age is 73. And while I'm sure they could bullshit around it, it would be bullshit.
As long as they go the King Conan route, it could still be good.
