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.

The Bourne Ultimatum


None August 9th, 2007

Reviewer's grade: A

 

Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) is starting to get the picture: He is a CIA-controlled, government kill puppet who has given up his life to serve his country.

 

What he doesn't know "” his real identity, past life, past loves and program particulars "” are starting to come into focus. Too bad that the CIA "” or at least Noah Vosen (David Strathairn) "” wants him dead to keep the program out of the public eye. Problem: Some info was leaked to a British reporter. Solution: Kill everyone. Vosen is opposed by good-girl CIA fox Pamela Landy (Joan Allen), who wants to bring Bourne home and put an end to the dark project.

 

Meanwhile, Bourne has to fight other assassins in cool European places like busy British train stations and crowded Moroccan alleys before coming back to the U.S. to face his past and the present plot to put his lights out. Guns, chases, gizmos, code words, secret hideouts, wiretaps, explosions. Don't you love summer movies? PG-13
