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. Here are five examples of shows both past and present — and new to DVD and/or Blu-ray — that encompass some of the more outrageous ideas ever to go beyond boardroom discussion.

Skinwalkers


None August 16th, 2007

skinwalkers

Reviewer's grade: C-

 

You can't keep a good Hollywood horror myth down, so here comes another werewolf picture. This time a clan of werewolves is tracking a boy named Timothy. If he reaches his 13th birthday, he has the power to end the curse of lycanthropy across the board, and so another clan of were-beasties is trying to protect him.

 

That's what we call a "plot." The bad guys ride big ol' choppers and the good guys ride in a beat up panel truck. That's what we call "cheap." Elias Koteas stars as Timothy's protector, a skinwalker who wants the curse to end so he can stay home on nights with a full moon and watch old Lon Chaney movies on TV.

 

Jim Isaacs, who directed "Jason X" and garnered a few laughs by not taking Machete Man too seriously, plays this one straight but still generates some chuckles because the picture is such a conglomeration of movie genres. If you have to watch it at all, wait for the DVD. PG-13
