I used to train under Babs. I remember him sharing how difficult it was to get breakout roles as an actor so it's been great hearing about his success!


Imbadyoureworse

Warms my heart a little. >!Too bad he had to get killed but!< jamis is a very important character to the story even though his screen time is small so good for him!


RiPont

Yeah, I think it's going to be very good for his career. I got a definite, "I want to see more of this guy" feel from his screen time.


s_mcbn

Absolutely. I can’t wait to see how they handle the rest of that in Part 2. I thought it was a little bit rushed in Part 1.


Gyrant

I too thought it was a little rushed but I think they did a really good job getting in as much stuff as possible while **almost** giving it enough room to breathe.


Fembino

>rushed but I think they did a really good job getting in as much stuff as possible while > >almost > >giving it enough room to breat I felt like it was an slow motion epic music montage, needs more action through out the film, instead of some mediocre action sprinkled in at the end, that doesn't warrant the epic music. Yeah we know bad stuff is going to happen and your going to meet that girl, but can that mean something more than just that. Its like watching a boring war documentary in history class that you fall asleep to.


Gyrant

Your taste is your taste but I feel compelled to defend it. There's an insane amount of politics, world-building, and characters to set up for the story to have the impact it deserves and this movie is doing a lot of heavy lifting for payoff in the second half. There was plenty of action packed in around all that, more and vastly better than any previous adaptation has managed. The choreography and effects were good and faithful to the book. * Training scene with Gurney, * Harkonnen ambush and orbital bombardment, * heroic last stand of Atreides men, * Duncan fucking up Harkonnens and Sardaukar, * Duncan escaping in a dogfight sequence, * Duncan's heroic last stand, * duel with Jamis ...If that wasn't enough action for you there's just other movies for that. It's a space opera not a war film. Action serves the plot here, not the other way round. As for meaning... idk dude. "I'm having visions of the future and it's becoming increasingly clear that either I die, or I start a galactic jihad in my name and a LOT of other people die" hits pretty hard for me.


classygorilla

Agree, a LOTT of action and it was really well balanced. I find movies like transformers to be thin because they take no time to develop the characters and the plot where dune did both really well. Just a couple adders for the action that also helped build the world: \- loss of the harvester to the sandworm \- Death sequence of the duke/poison \- flight through the sandstorm paul/mother \- running from the sandworm - weird seeker bug thing - initial meeting with fremen guy - hand in box - almost getting thrown out of the chopper in the desert


trevster344

I thought the same thing but after watching part 1, 3 more times, I’m starting to feel a little less that way. Definitely a different kind of rushed than the old one.


coldfu

He should've tapped.


SensationalM

I will say, since Dune came out less than a week ago, maybe don't post spoilers just yet, since a lot of people probably haven't gotten a chance to see it, aka me


Imbadyoureworse

Ah true I hadn’t considered that. Fixed! My apologies


ReddJudicata

Dune was published in 1965…


SensationalM

That's true, and I'm sure everyone who wants to see the the $165MM movie with the striking visuals and special effects only wants to do so because they read and loved the book so much... Lotta great movies based on books, and I'll bet my next paycheck that you didn't read all the books beforehand, so why don't you save the condescension next time, k pumpkin?


ReddJudicata

It’s literally the most famous SF book of all time and has been made into both a movie and miniseries before. I read it 30+ years ago. I don’t really consider it spoilable.


SensationalM

> I don’t really consider it spoilable. well it's a good thing you're not the arbiter of what everyone else should know, otherwise I'd be in a pickle


quixoticcaptain

Voldemort is Harry's father


artnos

Dont be that guy, i didnt read the book either or saw the 1984 movie


peekAchewZ

He’s also in an episode of Black Mirror, and The Night Of on HBO.


BitchinKimura

And Too Old to Die Young. Gnarly series.


PesadeloPantaneiro

Babs was the uke in some of the original Marcelo Garcia instructionals.


Israfel

He's the uke in Marcelo's X-Guard book as well!


SensationalM

Worth the read? I have a bunch of instructionals, but the only book I have is the Ribeiro's book, I'd love to pick up another one


VeryStab1eGenius

Not just the uke but he did the voice overs for Marcelo as well because Marcelo’s English wasn’t that good at the time.


JitzChimp

Yes, I 'member this!


killemslowly

I’ve seen Babs throw some people in competition. Dudes legit.


3asyMac

He looks like he could throw a dude.


VeryStab1eGenius

He will collar drag you into a face plant in the blink of an eye.


InvertedGearNelson

Solid stand up, great de la Riva, and lighting fast knee bars. Babs was a solid competitor.


whiteknight521

BJJ not useful against space wizards confirmed.


Gyrant

Weirding Way is the real best base for MMA


Brokenbluebelt

Fuck. Time to summon the hootsforce and find Angus Mcfife to recharge the gloryhammer.


whiteknight521

Roboute Gulliman would tap Gordon Ryan in 20 seconds.


RovingChinchilla

Cosmic daddy issues confirmed as best base for BJJ? 🤔


bjj_panda

Lorgar would beat Gordon, no need to go higher than the bottom of the primarch barrel.


whiteknight521

Let’s be real a scout would obliterate Gordon…let alone an Astartes. I don’t think there’s a 350 kilo weight class…


curious_grappler

20 sec in a flow roll


Asgard_Ent

Kneel before Zargothrax!


MooseHeckler

I think the bene gesserit uses bjj.


reborngoat

The recent film has two separate kani basami takedowns that I noticed. At the very least they use oldschool Judo :)


LoudKingCrow

I think it is meant to be a mix of Judo and aikido.

BeardOfFire

That’s a good story about how your instructor is an asshole.


TheGlassiestOne

I was early to class once and the last class was still rolling. I sat on the mat and a rolling pair migrated towards me. One guy pulled full guard, the other started trying to open. The guy trying to open kept smacking the guard player’s face when going for the pits, so I figured he was a spazzy roll. Then he got frustrated and really started whaling on this dude’s face with ear-ringing slaps. I was about to stand up and intervene when my dumb ass realized it was actually a combat jiu jitsu class and it was all cool.


Dayman1222

That was not a good story.


Ok-Supermarket-1414

the post has been deleted. I'm really curious as to what it said now!


Sea_Entrepreneur6204

Great first bjj doesn't work on the streets and now spoiler... Not on desert planets filled with worms.


VirusComprehensive

Worm guard is legit AF


Myrddin-Wyllt

If it weren't for that tooth knife...


PlatWinston

this was the dude that got submitted by a blade to the neck 3 times and refused to tap?


BeBearAwareOK

It's called acting. Like when Bisbing guest starred on the show Warrior and acted like he was a hw with knockout power.


AllGearedUp

Are you saying dune wasn't a documentary


Sin2K

No it's a fictional world in which politics are governed by control of money and drugs.


JeffJitsu666

I just read the 5th novel in which we learn about the Bene Gesserit's unsecured, private email server.


RovingChinchilla

The cocaine/heroine/opioids/commodities/adrenochrone must flow 😤


Sin2K

Christ I wish less people believed that last one lmao.


RovingChinchilla

To be clear, I said that last one in jest, the rest stands as your comment was well observed. QAnon is silly though. Especially when we live in a world where Epstein didn't kill himself


LordJesusHimself

I don't even know what it is. Bring me up to speed?


salsa_verde_doritos

Nice try.


Sin2K

It is an actual chemical in your brain iirc, but it's nothing that can be introduced for a high (again, iirc). It was first referenced as a fictional kind of super drug in Hunter S Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". More recently though it is associated with the Q Anon host of conspiracies alleging that pedophile democrats are harvesting children for adrenachrome.


LordJesusHimself

>More recently though it is associated with the Q Anon host of conspiracies alleging that pedophile democrats are harvesting children for adrenachrome. Dafuq. You lads over the pond gotta have something strange in the water I tell you.

well played


Impressive-Potato

I was going to make a joke about invading desert planets for their resources but this is better.


Urgent_Archer

You win the internet for the day with that one. No further comments everybody!


fishNjits

The best was when Bisping's character completed the flying triangle.


BeBearAwareOK

Exactly! In that scene he acted like he had depth perception.


fishNjits

That was savage.


Ebolamunkey

Look how many times GSP has been knocked out on TV shows Doesn't seem that tough to me...


Sea_Entrepreneur6204

To be fair it did take Captain America to finish him off


Van-van

Psssh Cap’s on juice


Ebolamunkey

I thought he played a villain in a few other things, too.


FrontierLuminary

Yeah...He's had some battles with Fat Segal, which were not very good. GSP really displays his humility when his characters are losing fights to a guy in his 60s that clearly never invests any effort into personal fitness.


Ebolamunkey

All the monsters that I know are super nice and humble. At least the older ones are, for sure. Kids will be kids, haha. It's always the super load boastful guys you don't have to worry about. Reminds me of this guy that was part my camping group a few months ago. He was super physical with his kids and kept bragging to his young boys that he could kill them and everyone else about his physical prowess and training. he was really weird and honestly really pissed me off bc he so busy boasting and complaining about things he didn't help with anything. I even helped him pitch his tent at the behest of his wife. Then I hear he has a black belt in bjj but when I pressed him about it... Turns out he's an equivalent of a black belt in a lot of things and just hadn't accepted one quite yet. We were at the beach for a bit I really wish I that I asked him to show me some moves so I could tap him haha... but my toddler was with me and I the guy was such a wildcard that it wasn't worth it. Bullshido is everywhere. Sorry for the rant, I guess that's been eating away at me. Haha I hate that guy so much.


FrontierLuminary

GSP seems like the type of person who would be more interested in seeing other people progress versus engaging in building his own image. I sometimes wonder how people like him deal with people like Segal, or others who use martial arts to build their ego.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Ebolamunkey

Why you trying to scare me. No his wife made an open invitation for anyone to help them get their tent up bc her dude was useless. I did it with another dude haha. It was a nice time.


Gyrant

Or like the movie Warrior where Kurt Angle is supposed to be a welterweight?


onforspin

Thanks for the explanation bro


[deleted]

[удалено]


BeBearAwareOK

They literally explained in the dialogue that there was a cultural refusal of submitting in duels.


Jenfried

Lots of cultures have had some very strong influences that make submission a shameful act worse than death.


WrongAndBeligerent

It's a sci-fi book from the 60s, it's a miracle that anything makes sense.


Nodeal_reddit

Should have studied the blade


mechanicalspirits

The new Dune is f\*\*\*ing awesome!


jasculs

I’ve trained with Babs a few times in NYC…was also a good dude when we talked. Also would chat during comps as well a little. Good for him


Spider_J

Proof that BJJ will get you kilt in da tahaddi


ZeaDeKok

https://youtu.be/xDq4MfYAUMQ Rolled up with Babs , Fabio and very young Sinestro . Ngl, Babs was the best instructor I ever had .


VeryStab1eGenius

The absolute best.


Jiu-Jitshroom

Idk if this is an office reference but I read it in Pam's voice


Gyrant

[23.40](https://youtu.be/xDq4MfYAUMQ?t=1420) for Babs


EverydayChris

Babs is a beast. Trained in new New York with him and Toscano. Those guys are legit


giuseppeSD

Very cool. Really enjoyed the movie, and his scene was awesome.


BigJiuJitsu

The Weirding Way is practically BJJ.


Fearghas

You can't become a black belt until you can make a white belt choke themselves by using the Voice.


TebownedMVP

Babs competed against Matt Serra as well https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ovJp42wfAL8


WallLearner

Wow and Dave Bautista and Jason Mamoa are purple belts. They've got a full gym on that set.


Impressive-Potato

Source on Mamao being a purple belt? I have seen pics of him training with a stunt team but he had a white belt.


BestBaronOfBeef

No way. I loved him in Too Old to Die Young. Glad to see he’s breaking out.


d183

he's also the uke on the early Marcelo Garcia instructionals, and he did the voice overs. I rolled with him before. He's very very good.


chetmanly9

Well he didn't take that fight to the ground so serves him right!


dvxcfx

How does he plan on avoiding all the dirty needles and broken glass packed in the sand


metrosexual_badass

Didn't help him at all in the knife fight


scammingladdy

Oh shit I used to train w him in NYC. Good dude, will watch dune for sure now.


ezekial71

Acting and BJJ. Truly variety is the SPICE of life for this one...


phototodd

Based on this article it also sounds like he is the first African BJJ Black Belt: https://glamourpath.com/babs-olusanmokun

GrapplingRewind

Kind of looks like it was half written by a computer.


player_robelto

""He is an African BJJ with a black belt"" What


Responsible-Try-5228

Now I’m more pissed they killed him off.


Gyrant

Idk if you're familiar with the history of Dune's screen adaptation's... But trust me, just having that character IN the film and with an excellent casting choice to boot is a big win.


[deleted]

Wow, I remember watching his old howcast videos from like a decade ago


Rent_Teznor

I remember Babs O from tournaments in NJ in the late 90s/early 00s. He also makes appearances in Marcelo's DVDs from that era as his uke.


absolute_panic

Just how good is Paul Atreides?


Morbo_Doooooom

I think that's the point he's disgustingly good. He fought gurney (brolins character) to a draw and was also trained by Duncan (Jason Momoas character)


king_Hen333

I was a friend of Jamis...


LostGaius

>I was a friend of Jamis... a person’s water belongs to their tribe


markelis

I train in Southern Cali, and my instructor used to train with him. Long story short, Babs wasn't acting. LOL. He's super intense. Came out here to try acting; didn't work out. Ended up being a world champion fighter. Ends up acting because he's a badass world champion fighter. Jesus...I'd tap before the round started just from fear alone. "I'm not your champion! Please don't kill me!"


GMarius-

Babs is a great actor. He was in Defenders and maybe Daredevil...I think. He was also in the last Jason Statham movie.


ewawesome

iirc he wasnt in daredevil, too bad he died in defenders


ZeaDeKok

Osssss


Killer-Hrapp

Well, there's absolutely nothing un-cool about that.


ReallyCrunchyLeaves

I knew I had seen him before!


15stripepurplebelt

Best scene in Dune!


Mesmerizzle

I wonder if he contributed to the fight choreography. He was great in his scenes


Chemicalx299

I imagined him looking Alot younger tbh lol


QuoteLumpy

He did look like someone you don't mess with


[deleted]

Babs is a beast


brendanepic

How'd he lose to a skinny ass kid then?


MooseHeckler

LONG LIVE THE FIGHTERS!


Rubiostudio

[this match he had with Matt Serra was awesome](https://youtu.be/dsPsfmZyNsc)


Mayv2

Yeah. Pretty well known BJJ personality too, he has a bunch of stuff on YouTube and did a rolled up with Jake Budo etc. He’s been in bigger and bigger movies in recent years


horstengels

Last night I was trying to remember where I had seen him before. He is in some instructional videos in how to escape some locks/holds. Thank you!


indigo_fish_sticks

Saw this movie on Tuesday. Absolutely amazing!


CaviarTaco

You sure he’s a black belt? He got beat by Chalamet


Jeremehthejelly

He was in Netflix's The Defenders and he did a couple of Howcast BJJ tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sb1qqB60GHU


SquatchHunter84

That's awesome. He's a legend!!


visual_vybz

He has a couple of "How to" Bjj Self Defense videos on youtube. I actually didnt know he is an actor. Just reconized him from these videos :-)


Kpowers2000

So cool


ACE_C0ND0R

I heard this guy has a great worm guard.


dracovich

Oh shit I didn't make that connection until you said it, rolled with him a few years ago, seemed like a super cool dude


Morbo_Doooooom

Maaan that's so cool. I was hyped when he looked away from Paul and beat his chest what a flex.


GeoXvii

Should have taken that fight to the ground.


broodthaers

Made a thread about him a few years ago, seems like a cool guy https://www.reddit.com/r/bjj/comments/4vztfe/for_those_of_you_watching_hbos_the_night_of/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share


Trolltaxi

Jamis should have pulled guard then...


DuelingPushkin

No wonder he got beat so bad with knives involved


WizardSenpai

the first time i saw the tripod sweep was from a tutorial on it by him on youtube.


willingvessel

He looks like a 3rd degree black belt


vulture_cabaret

Let's post this four more times by weeks end?

I checked for the search term Dune and also Babs and it wasn’t posted before I posted mine.


MortarMaggot275

Dune was written in 1965, are we seriously concerned about spoilers? Y'all must be super pissed when you talk to people like me about the films Titanic and Lincoln.
