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.

Blades of Glory

Will Ferrell and Jon Heder played two disgraced figure skaters who have been banned from the sport for life. When they realize that they are banned as singles skaters only, the pair makes a joint comeback as the world's first all-male doubles team. And that's the part of the movie that actually makes a little sense. Most of the gags are of the straight-guys-doing-stuff-that-makes-them-look-gay variety, but damned if most of it isn't funny. The picture is no classic, even by Ferrell's standards, but the guy has more nerve than just about any other comic around and that alone makes him a joy to behold. The film co-stars Will Arnett ("Arrested Development") and Amy Poehler ("Saturday Night Live") as brother-and-sister skaters who have a sibling relationship straight out of a Jacobean revenge tragedy. Rated PG-13
