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.

Sydney White

None September 27th, 2007


Reviewer's grade: C


Sydney White (Amanda Bynes) is a college-bound girl looking forward to joining her deceased mother's former sorority. However, when she gets to college, she discovers that she's too "real" for the other sorority girls, who kick her out in the rain.


Sydney immediately moves into a ramshackle house called The Vortex with seven dorks and helps them in their never-ending struggle against the tyranny of the beautiful people.

Supposedly a modern retelling of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (seven dorks, get it?), "Sydney White" really owes a much greater debt to "Revenge of the Nerds," with many plot points and some entire scenes lifted from the 1984 geek-out (for example, everyone stands up at the end and admits they're a "dork").


Co-starring Matt Long as the ultra-dreamy Tyler Prince and a large cast of characters that you've probably seen somewhere on B-list network TV, "Sydney White" is cute and funny enough, but really will only appeal to prepubescent girls and their moms. PG-13
