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.

Drillbit Taylor

At first, he's just looking for a score to get him out of town, but as he gets to know his underage employers and, more importantly, their English teacher (Leslie Mann, "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin," "Knocked Up"), he starts taking his job seriously. But is it too late? "Drillbit Taylor" isn't the worst movie in the world, but it bears certain comparisons to "Superbad" (same co-writer, producer, friendship dynamic among the young main characters), which is a hard act to follow.


The characters aren't as super-likable, making it difficult to super-care what happens to them. Wilson comes across well as a homeless guy, but he doesn't have that twinkle in his eye and his performance seems half-hearted. Not bad, but the group chemistry doesn't quite gel, leaving things feeling a little undercooked. PG-13
