Body vs. Body: Conan the Barbarian

August 4, 2011 |  by  |  Celebrity Fitness, Follow the Lita

Ahh slightly off topic but as you peep below it’s all worth a good derail. I’m talking body Vs body so I am practically still on beat here!

Conan The Barbarian is most definitely one of my most cherished childhood films. I vividly remember watching it after school along with my sister and cousins (you’d need both hands to count us all) in my aunt’s living room. We’d fight over the most central piece of carpet in front of the TV then lay bellies down, heads up, hands on chins watching as Arnie conquered his enemies on the telly. So naturally with the rise of this new rendition of Conan I’m feeling a little skeptical. Who is this Jason Momoa character and can he portray the almighty Arnie as Conan, warrior of all warriors?! Let’s take a little peek shall we …Enjoy!


Original Trailer: Conan The Barbarian, 1982

…I had to add this, gives me goosebumps! Arnie’s Training, 1970s:

Jason Momoa as Khal Drago, 2011

Jason in this picture reminds me of a New Zealand native, Maori warrior after performing the Haka, warrior dance!

  2. Arnold was dope but Jason all day! He’s got that certain something similar to the Rock. I guess it’s that Pacific Islander thing. I’ll be in the theater.

  3. Arnold Schwarzenenegger. Jason Momoa shows a Neo-Greek pseudo-macho faggot in the film who thinks tradition=masculinity which is extremely stupid faggotry. Arnold plays a total barbarian relying on brute strength alone and courage. No stupid culture crap. A barbarian is a barbarian. He doesn’t care about civilizations and cultures. “Warrior dancing” is pussy shit for him. Dancing is stupid shit for a barbarian. There is something about Jason Momoa’s portayal in his character in the Gam of Thrones and in Conan that I find in my retarded pseudo-macho faggots in Greece which I highly despise and don’t like it. Jason Momoa shows a highly traditionalist Balkanian in his roles and not a full-fledged barbarian. Sure he is more fierce, but less straight-forward. Remember Viserys? I believed Khal always wanted to insult him with passion, but he never did since he isn’t straight-forward.

  4. Momoa did a great job portraying the savagery of the character. His conan is also more intelligent , and definitely a superior fighter. The speed he displays in the sword fighting scenes puts Arnolds conan to shame.
