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.

Reviewers' grade: A

The team that kidded zombie horror in "Shaun of the Dead" returns to take on the cop/action movie and, as they did last time, manage the tricky feat of making a picture that stands as an example of the very thing they're parodying.

 

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost return, this time as a pair of police partners in the model English village of Sandford. Pegg is a London copper exiled to the country for being so good he made the rest of Scotland Yard look bad. Now he and his new partner become suspicious when a series of accidents look too much like murders and no one in the village wants to investigate.

 

Many of the jokes fly by almost too fast, which is a shame because they're actually funny. Some are lost to English country accents and some are just so subtle you won't get them until the next day, like the one that just dawned on me. R
