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.

Reviewer's grade: C

 

Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty "” they're all ancestors for Giselle, a princess drawn in the classic Walt Disney mold (skinny, lily-white, apple-cheeked, impossibly cute). But their terrors don't compare to the hell that awaits Giselle when she's plunged into the real world that is present-day Times Square!

 

Lost and with no place to go, Giselle (Amy Adams) finds a substitute prince in the form of a conveniently single lawyer (Patrick Dempsey) while she awaits rescue from a real prince (James Marsden). The satire inherent in comparing the carefree world of animated characters to our crime-ridden one is never fully explored, despite best intentions.

 

Adams and Marsden give it their all, but there's little to support them beyond instantly disposable songs and situations so predictable, you'd know the end result just from the trailer alone. Then again, I'm not 7. PG
