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.

premonition

Reviewer grade: D+

 

Why do strange things happen to good people? I dunno. Maybe because they've lost their faith in anything bigger than themselves. Or they've lost their ability to find a good script. There you go "” "Premonition" in a nutshell. I just saved you nine bucks. Thank me by dropping some of it in the poor box next weekend. Sandra Bullock stars as a wife and mother who wakes up one morning to learn that her husband has been killed in a highway accident, and wakes up the next to find out that he hasn't. Repeat until your bladder tells you it's time to do something else.

 

This is one of those twisty-time pictures that could revel in its lack of sense but instead tries not only to explain itself to you, but uplift you at the same time. It will do neither. Bullock is better than this material. Hell, Tara Reid is better than this guff. The movie is not a thriller, not sci-fi, not a romance, not entertaining. It's a jigsaw puzzle with the most important pieces missing. You be missing, too. PG-13
