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.

Kickin' It Old Skool


None May 3rd, 2007

Reviewers' grade: D-

At first I thought that "Skool" was spelled that way due to urban patois. Now I've seen the movie and I know that "skool" is misspelled because no one associated with this disaster is smart enough to spell it correctly. Yes, it's that dumm. Jamie Kennedy plays "” I just can't write "stars" "” as a guy who awakens from a 20-year coma to find that he is a 12-year-old in a man's body.

 

It's not much of a body (we get to see it naked, a sight for which my eyeballs are filing suit against Bob Yari Productions), but it is a man's. He decides to re-form his old break-dance crew to win a contest so he can repay his parents for his medical bills. It's a plan a 12-year-old might concoct, but we have to take it seriously.

 

This is billed as a comedy, but it is a joyless, laugh-less, insight-less, pitiful excuse for one, and it is well on its way to placing on every Worst Film of 2007 list. In fact, I think it has a lock. PG-13
