Zack: Frank didn't even need an attractive, nubile woman to make his point about the ball-crushing adventure and drama of fantasy.
Steve: That's a sweet picture, but it seems like kind of an unfair fight. I mean, giant pythons kill stuff like babies and small dogs. Do you really need to charge it on a horse and lay waste with a huge axe?

You're a fantastic barbarian with glowing red eyes and a bloody axe. What possible motivation could you have for not charging around lopping the heads off reptiles?
