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.

Resident Evil: Extinction

Revewier's grade: D+

 

Throughout director Russell Mulcahy's inexplicable three-decades-strong film career, there's only one entry on his filmography worth seeing "¦ and it's certainly not "Resident Evil: Extinction." (For the record, it's the one with the self-indulgent title of "Russell Mulchay's Tale of the Mummy.")

 

I loved Paul W.S. Anderson' s first "Resident Evil," liked Alexander Witt's "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" and hated this latest sequel. (Suddenly, the list of terrible movies based on video games isn't as lonely for "Super Mario Bros.")

 

Milla Jovovich is back to kick more zombie butt, but too bad Mulcahy and company don't give her much of a chance to do that. They're much too busy trying to determine how to stretch 30 minutes of material into 90, and disguise the fact that it looks more like an episode of a syndicated-TV series than an actual theatrical installment.
