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.

Blood Car


None June 8th, 2007

Reviewer's grade: B+

 

Set in a future in which gas is more than $30 a gallon, "Blood Car" follows sensitive vegan kindergarten teacher Archie (Mike Brune) as he tries to invent a wheat germ-fueled engine. Then, while drunk, Archie discovers the engine runs much better on "” you guessed it "” blood.

 

Archie's acquisition of motorized transport leads to several steamy liaisons with Denise (Katie Rowlett), the kind of girl who dates anyone with a car. Unfortunately, for Archie to preserve his newfound sexual gratification, he needs a steady supply of the red stuff. Several animal and human murders ensue.

 

Co-starring Anna Chlumsky (of "My Girl" fame) as vegetable salesperson Lorraine, "Blood Car" paints a funny, if ultimately dark and pessimistic, portrait of fundamental human appetites overcoming political idealism, and the bad that can happen when a man starts thinking solely with his naughty bits.
