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.

None July 3rd, 2008


Reviewer's grade: A+

Pixar scores again with this funny/sad/exciting animated tale of a lonely robot left behind on a totally trashed-out planet Earth whose job it is to compact the garbage humans left behind and stack it into towers of rubbish. When another robot, sent by humans back to Earth to check for possible plant growth, meets Wall-E, it's love among the automatons. Andrew Stanton, whose last film was "Finding Nemo," brings this sci-fi love story to life with animation that is stunningly good.

More than once I sat in wonder trying to figure out how a particular scene was put together before remembering that it was the animation, stupid. Mostly silent except for music and sound effects, the picture played surprisingly well for even the youngest kids.

Truly, this is a family film for the whole family, and I don't write that very often. If you want to see at least one Oscar-lock this year, this is it. G
