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.

2 Days in Paris


None December 6th, 2007

2daysinparis

Reviewer's grade: C

 

Jack (Adam Goldberg) and Marion (Julie Delpy) are a 30something couple who decide to stop off in Paris to stay with her parents for a couple of days on the way from Italy back home to NYC. During their 48 hours in the land of Edith Piaf, Jack is tortured, via his hypochondriac tendencies, by smelly buses, braised bunny rabbits, other tourists, mysterious black mold, Marion's ex-boyfriends and his inability to understand French.

 

Marion, on the other hand, is tortured by Jack's incessant bitching and moaning. It's up in the air which one has it worse. Basically a pet project written, directed, produced, scored, edited and possibly catered by Delpy, "2 Days in Paris" is somewhat predictable, but just edgy enough to be entertaining. If you can get past the constant bickering and the smirking, simpering French stereotypes (the Horny Artist, the Horny Loudmouth, the Horny Crotchety Old Man, among others), the spontaneous feel of the cinematography and the gritty feel of Paris hold a certain charm on their own.

 

Screening Thursday through Sunday at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. R
