-absolutely perfect musical score
-perfect props and scene setup
-excellent cinematography (or whatever it's called)
-had James Earl Jones
-Schwarzenegger is a poor actor...Conan talks much more than him, has vastly more personality, doesn't act like a doofus, etc.
-Valeria has a bad nose
-the Conan played by Schwarzenegger was basically Conan-lite: had to run away from a few wild dogs, always messed up (fell down stairs), was made into a slave for a long time, was basically beaten a lot, struggled to do things that novel Conan could do with one finger
-Schwarzenegger is actually a lot smaller than Conan, and doesn't even look much like him
-Conan also doesn't have a European accent that I'm aware of
