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.

Journey to the Center of the Earth

None July 17th, 2008


Reviewer's grade: D-

Brendan Fraser ("The Air I Breathe") stars as Trevor Anderson, a scientist struggling to keep his 10-years-missing brother's lab functioning. When some evidence comes to light about the brother's possible whereabouts, Trevor takes his nephew (Josh Hutcherson, "Bridge to Terabithia") with him to Iceland, where they meet a hot mountaineer (Anita Briem) and subsequently fall into a crazy underground adventure.

Built around a high falutin' new 3D technology, "Journey to the Center of the Earth" contains an incredibly thin story, which requires a Herculean suspension of disbelief to follow. There might actually be more plot holes than there is plot, which is sort of unintentionally impressive. But really, it's just so super stupid.

 If you don' t care about the story and just want to see glowing birds and dinosaur snot come out of the screen, more power to you, but make sure the theater you go to offers the 3D glasses (not all of them do). PG
