No Holds Barred

RLJ Entertainment's new Blu-ray for No Holds Barred begins with what seems like dozens of trailers for movies starring pro wrestlers from the WWE talent pool. Each flick went direct to home video, but once upon a time — aka 1989 — one had to go to the multiplex to catch such a spectacle.

Knights of Badassdom

In 2008, the third act of the guy comedy Role Models used LARPing — live-action role-playing, that is — as a backdrop for our protagonists' lessons learned. Today, Knights of Badassdom extends that half-hour into a full feature, to the point where viewers are left not smiling, but exhausted.

Switched on

Not everything on television has to appeal to mass audiences. In fact, with the further fractioning of viewership thanks to alternatives like Netflix and VOD, more series can afford to become more niche.

3:10 to Yuma


None September 13th, 2007

310-to-Yuma

Reviewer's grade: A

 

Russell Crowe as murderer/thief Ben Wade fights an intense battle of wills with Christian Bale as rancher/decent-but-failing family man Dan Evans in one of the best movies of 2007. Dan must transport Wade to the town of Contention and put him on the 3:10 train to the prison at Yuma before his gang "” temporarily led by sociopathic killer Charlie Prince, a living icicle played chillingly by Ben Foster "” can rescue him.

 

Director James Mangold has updated Elmore Leonard's 1953 short story and the 1957 movie adapted from it into a picture that is both faithful to the conventions of the Western and a contemporary variation on them. There isn't a bad performance in the movie and the tension builds throughout to an explosive finale.

 

My theory has always been that nine-tenths of the people in Hollywood would like to make a Western. Now, you can change that to ten-tenths. R
