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.

Feel the Noise

None October 11th, 2007


Reviewer's grade: C


If you know what the musical style called "reggaeton" is and like it, this picture is full of it. It's a blend of Caribbean, Latin and hip-hop rhythms, and it's pretty bouncy stuff that goes well with sinuous dance moves, with which the picture is also well-endowed.


The film's plot is ancient: Right after Sophocles scored a hit with "Oedipus Rex," he wrote a script about a kid who discovers his best self by becoming a songwriter, befriending another budding musician, defending his artistic vision, meeting a girl, losing the girl and getting the girl back again. I can hear that ancient Greek producer now: "Sophie, you'll kill 'em. It'll run forever."


A pleasant cast of mostly unknowns and TV veterans don't have much trouble selling this one to young people who like the music and haven't grown old seeing a million variations on the basic story. For everyone else, well, maybe not. PG-13
