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. Here are five examples of shows both past and present — and new to DVD and/or Blu-ray — that encompass some of the more outrageous ideas ever to go beyond boardroom discussion.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End


None May 26th, 2007

Reviewer's grade: A

Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Geoffrey Rush and more pirates than you can shake a cutlass at weigh anchor for box-office heaven in this final chapter in the "Pirates" trilogy - yeah, right.

 

Our gang of soft-core cutthroats sets sail to rescue Depp's Capt. Jack Sparrow from the Land of the Dead, gather the buccaneer captains from the Seven Seas - a sort of piratical board of directors (and you thought only Enron had one of those) - and defeat the evil Lord Beckett (Tom Hollander) and tentacled Davy Jones (Bill Nighy).

 

It's a terrific spectacle and director Gore Verbinski keeps it rolling along at a much brisker pace than part two, and with fewer pointless diversions. The supporting cast returns for color and Keith Richards, in his highly anticipated cameo, actually presents us with a performance that's good enough to make us want more. PG-13
