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 12th, 2007


Reviewer's grade: B-


Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) is an awkward, unpopular teenager. However, after buying an old Chevrolet Camaro that can turn into a robot several times larger than a car, Sam's fortunes experience a dramatic reversal as he is forced to save the world from a power-hungry robot named Megatron. In the process, Sam gets the girl of his dreams, learns the value of personal sacrifice, and becomes a conscientious citizen his parents can be proud of, blah blah blah.


What should have been solely a gleeful, pointless exercise in kick-ass CGI robot fights is sculpted by director MichaelBay into a messy phalanx of subplots that are meant to enhance the robotic melee with the spice of human sympathy, but generally just distract with the spice of human tedium. With a good-looking cast of humans and non-humans alike, "Transformers" is way too long at almost two-and-a-half hours, but is still a good enough time if you can ignore the director's attempt to make sense of it all. PG-13
