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.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army


None July 17th, 2008

hellboy2

Reviewer's grade: A

Ron Perlman, in the title role, Selma Blair as Hellboy's way-too-hot (literally) girl friend, and Jeffrey Tambor as a prickly bureaucrat, return and lead a supporting cast of elves, trolls, and assorted paranormal good and bad guys in the best comical/tragical/melodramatic fantasy-adventure of the summer.

Hellboy and his team of paranormal crimebusters have to stop an Earth spirit (Luke Goss) from leading an army of indestructible mechanical warriors on a crusade to rid the planet of parking lots, shopping malls, and the humans who love them.

Guillermo del Toro directs from a story concocted by him and "Hellboy" comic creator Mike Mignola. Del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth") has more of his patented comically hideous monsters for us in the most imaginative summer romp to date. PG-13
