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.

I Am Legend

None December 20th, 2007


Reviewer's grade: C-


Just in time for the holidays, here's a new movie "” it only seems old "” with Will Smith and his faithful dog doing battle with rabid, flesh-eating zombies, both animal and human. You won't look at a turkey carcass the same way ever again. A miracle cure for cancer has done the big oopsie and turned 90 percent of Earth's population into monsters.


Does that mean that 100 percent had cancer and only 10 percent were immune to the drug's side effects? If you're the kind of moviegoer who asks obvious questions like that, you'd best stay home.


This picture sidesteps so many simple questions, you'd think it was entered in the Iowa primary. Smith does good work as a man who is being driven slowly nutso by loneliness and constant tension, and he has a terrific moment as he begs a mannequin to say "hello" to him. His performance is the movie's best feature, but as you watch it, you'll wonder if he couldn't have saved if for a better script. PG-13
