Pulp fiction on the small screen

Salon recently posted an enthusiastic review of the 2009 movie Solomon Kane, claiming it's "far superior" to the recent Conan the Barbarian film. (Which, hello: damning with faint praise.) Conan and Solomon Kane were both created by the pulp fiction writer Robert E. Howard, but the Salon reviewer claims that Solomon is a "solid sword and sorcery movie built mostly on [actor James Purefoy's] ability to be totally badassed in the title role while looking like a refugee from a Thanksgiving parade float". Apparently, Solomon Kane is only available via Netflix streaming (and only for an indefinite length of time), so the next time I have a spare evening I'm going to make myself some popcorn and give it a shot.
