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.

Reviewer's grade: B+

Angela Vidal (Jennifer Carpenter) is one of those annoying local TV personalities who gets the human interest stories but is too cute and perky to be trusted with anything important. She and her cameraman Scott (Steve Harris) are shooting a piece on the life of a fire fighter. She follows Jake (Jay Hernandez) and his partner around the firehouse hoping that a call will come in so she can inject some excitement into the story. A call comes in. An elderly lady in a small apartment hotel is wailing in her room but won't answer the door. When the firefighters and a pair of L.A. cops break into her apartment, they find her covered with blood and happy to see them only because they are walking meat pies.

Director John Erick Dowdle takes his time getting started. When hell breaks loose, it breaks loose at the gallop. These rabid-cannibal-zombies are quick and deadly. If you're looking for just the thing to get you into the Halloween mood, here it is. R
