When I saw the names of the wrestlers involved in Movimus I felt like a sudden heat wave was hitting my city in the middle of December. I felt, um, THIRSTY. REALLY THIRSTY. I mean, how does Movimus expect me to watch Dave Markus vs Jimmy Reilly in one seating with such THIRST? I told to myself “whenever you are going to see this one you need a big bottle of water. Water and a box of Kleenex.. in case you spill any of it.”
Dave meets Jimmy after a couple of rough matches: one in which he was controlled by Doug Acre and another in which he dominated Trip Townsend but didn’t have a score difference to show for it. Now against Jimmy he has his hands, arms and legs full of big round muscle to control. Meanwhile, Jimmy is looking to improve his personal record after being schooled in a couple of his outings. A win over Movimus’ newest golden boy might not only help to cut back the difference of his win/ loss ratio, but earn a little bit of the respect he may have lost after being on the short end for most of his matches.
So then you can understand why Jimmy jumps into controlling Dave right away. We all have seen how quick Dave is and how that can be a problem for the bigger guy. Jimmy quickly succeeds and we see Dave trapped inside a headlock with Jimmy’s GIGANTIC bicep crushing his neck. “Oh, oh..”, it’s what comes to my mind, “this doesn’t look good”. It’s basically all Jimmy for the first round until Dave powers out and goes for a (very intimate) rear choke. However, you can see Jimmy is thinking and after finding a way to escape he overpowers Dave and and traps him in a choke that paints desperation all over his face.
It’s Jimmy 1, Dave 0; but not for long. In less that 40 seconds after the end of the first round, Dave has the big guy submitting in a front-face headlock. Once again, GO TEAM MARKUS!!!
Guys, this is another thriller. Down to the last two and a half minutes and we don’t really have a clear winner. So be ready. Take your blood pressure pills. And make sure you have some water and those Kleenex, ’cause if you enjoy this one as much as I did by the time we have the winner you will also be dehydrated.
The Best Thing About It
These two keep head to head for a total of 7 submissions! Was this a ‘World Series’ match and we didn’t know? Such a fast paced match with so many submission is not the standard over Movimus, so I guess they knew they had something really good when they finished taping this one. No surprise they decided to release this little masterpiece now, ending their year on such a high note!
Both wrestlers give us good show of their strenght. Like in 12:42 when Jimmy uses his arms to get a pained grunt out of Dave.
And Dave seems to be perfecting his choke game. He gets Jimmy a couple of times, and is just a matter of seconds before Jimmy submits to them once he’s trapped.
The Sexiest Bits
A match like this just can’t be downloaded and watched in one sitting. This 20 minute video took me a full hour to watch. Not a single word is uttered on this one. But still it is close and feels so intimate. Such a good thing when you watch two big guys being so comfortable.
Dont’you miss what happens after the final (and sexiest) submission at 20:03. One of the wrestlers trunk is lowered by his opponent’s body, unintentionally. The image of the loser readjusting his trunk after his defeat is so, so sexy.
And, yeah, of course, how can I forget about this:
Fuck, get me some of those Kleenex!
Just A Little Bit Less
I love the use of filters in Movimus productions as it gives it a distinctive look, but this time I found it being a little bit distracting, particularly when it came in contrast with Jimmy’s skin. At moments, when his body is near the borders of the screen, his skin looks yellowish, and for someone who can become too focused on details it becomes one of those thing you can’t unsee. The solution may be simple. Just reducing the intensity of the filter should be enough to avoid the distracting contrast against lighter skin.
The Bottom Line
A superb pre-holiday gift from Movimus, with one of the fastest paced, most exciting matches I have seen from them. And follow my advice: take it slow, be hydrated and keep your tissues ready!
