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.

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.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

None May 22nd, 2008

e movie.

"Crystal Skull" starts with a frenzy as Indiana (Harrison Ford) finds himself in the clutches of a band of Russian villains, led by the lithe, sword-swinging Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett, "I'm Not There," "Notes on a Scandal"), a power-mad dominatrix type obsessed with the idea of supernatural war toys. Indy escapes the Russians for a while, but loses his tenured professorship. Before he can flee the country in a huff, Indy is approached by a leather-clad hothead greaser named Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf, "Transformers," "Disturbia"), who bears news that Indy's friend Professor Oxley (John Hurt,  "V for Vendetta," "Hellboy") and Mutt's mom have disappeared in Peru while searching for a crystal skull and its tie to the mythical city of gold, El Dorado.

Die-hard followers are likely to be a bit disappointed its hard-to-believe climax. Still, "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull" is a fun ride. PG-13
